Tough Times Define You
Happy Tuesday! Are you off to a great start? Did you write down your goals? Get on it!
I was at Publix grabbing some stamps yesterday. And when I walk in, I see people running frantically.
I see the Deli lady grab the AED, and head towards the back.
The look on her face was as if she just saw a ghost.
This was a bad situation, and the paramedics took some time to get there.
Made me think, you never know when your card is going to be pulled?
How are you living life? Are you happy daily? Are you in the right situation? Are you taking care of your health?
We aren't guaranteed anything, bam the harsh REALITY of LIFE..smacks you in the face.
The wisest, most loving, and well rounded people you have ever met are likely those who have known misery, known defeat, known the heartbreak of losing something they loved, and have found their way out of the depths of their own despair.
These people have experienced many ups and downs, and have gained an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, understanding and a deep loving wisdom.
Truth be told, when hard times hit, and the challenges you face are great, you can either let your situation define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you.
So many of us are afraid of ourselves, of our own truth, and our feelings most of all.
We talk about how great the concepts of life are but then we hide from it every day.
It’s okay to have down days and tough times.
Expecting life to be wonderful all the time is wanting to swim in an ocean in which waves only rise up and never come crashing down.
When you recognize that the rising and crashing waves are part of the exact same ocean, you are able to let go and be at peace with the reality of these ups and downs.
One of life’s greatest gifts is the fact that life is difficult. Because in dealing with life’s difficulties, we build invaluable strength.
This strength enables us to successfully fulfill our deepest, most meaningful purposes.
It is precisely because life is difficult that we are able to make it great.
It is because life is difficult that we are able to rise above the difficulties.
We are able to make a difference and we are able to truly matter.
What have you learned that has helped you get through hard times? What truths do you keep in mind to motivate yourself?
All The Best,
Coach Joey and BiBi
