There are real issues in life, and we experience them at various proportions. I have seen people face the direst circumstances, so extreme that it is difficult for anyone to survive the situations. I have also experienced both challenging situations and breakthroughs. I am sure you have had your fair share of life’s overwhelming circumstances too. The situations may get difficult at work or at home. You may think that the beautiful things you were expecting are not forthcoming. You may even wonder why the light is always at the end of the tunnel and not inside the tunnel. In fact, you may be tired of waiting, thinking of letting go.
Despite the challenges, I have concluded that life is beautiful for those who stay positive in their situations. Why focus our attention on what is not working when we have a whole lot to appreciate and enjoy? No matter how appalling the situation may be, I have noticed that most people have at least something to be grateful for. The mental attitude of positivity, appreciation and gratefulness helps us to stay strong in the face of problems. We need inner strength to overcome difficulties that arise while achieving success and fulfilling our purpose in life.
Whatever is your current situation, whether good or not, does not define who you are. Your circumstances may shape your experience but does not tell your whole story. In most cases, our real experience is more about how we see our circumstances and less about what happened to us. How we experience life is more important than what we experience in life. And if you find yourself in an outrageous situation, remember that you may be at the edge of a breakthrough without knowing it. In that case, don’t ever let go. Hold tight. Stay strong and you will weather the storm.
