“TOUGH TIMES DON’T LAST, BUT TOUGH PEOPLE DO”
I tend to forget that when I am dealing with a tough situation that I feel that I cannot over come is that, this problem won’t last. I just have to remember to take it one day at a time and focus primarily on my blessings. An example would be, oh I have a roof over my head or food every day. When I really start to think about those two basic things that some people don’t have it really makes me feel grateful dispute my hardships. It can even be more detailed, I start to be thankful for my artistic abilities or being able to attend college and pursue a career. Just being thankful for everything and everyone, can make a world of a difference. Now I don’t do it all the time, I wait till I either calm down or the situation passes and I have get a chance to meditate or pray and really do some deep thinking. I put my phone on a timer for 15 minutes and really do some soul searching.
There is one quote I always think about, King David once stated
“This to shall pass”.
Toughs will come and go but its how strong we come out to be. Its not what happens to you, its how you handle what life (G-d) throw’s at you. We are given the strength to pass the challenge we are given, if we did not have the strength then its not our time then the test will come later. Sometimes people don’t understand the potential they have until they are tested.
Shakespeare once quoted.
“Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”
