See the Light

There are moments that all does not seem to be well...
Life has dealt you a terrible blow. You put your head down. It did not happen the way you wanted. You are not where you think you are supposed to be. You want to stay all alone and bemoan your fate. You are angry.You are easily irritated by any little thing. You want to 'switch off.'

But just wait a minute; can you change the situation? Why not just take out time and ponder over it, think of a way out. Okay, if you cannot change the situation, why not accept it and put on the best attitude that would enable you live through it.

Does it add to your accomplishments and popularity if everyone around you knows you are facing a mountain? When you become the new 'gist' because your continuous complaints are known by all.

Now, think about your health; it worsens, when you are immersed in constant worry, anxiety and fear.

Seeing only the negative aspects of any situation can cause you to miss opportunities, neglect problems that need to be solved, and fail to take action that would otherwise improve your relationships and quality of life.

See the light, it is there at the end of the tunnel.This mess is not happening to you, it is happening for you. It is only but a stepping stone to greater heights.

Stop thinking about what is happening to you and start thinking about what you can make happen. If you're not happy with the way your life is now,change it by setting new goals and moving on.

You can do this by being optimistic. Stay confident, hopeful and cheerful. Expect good things. See the good and encourage yourself and others to be their best.

And do not forget that time and tide waits for no one. Any moment you spend brooding over failures and setbacks cannot be regained and so it has been wasted.

Count your blessings! See the light!
