If life challenges are knocking on your door, or they've already moved on in and seem to be making themselves at home (!!), I've got 6 empowering reminders for you.
Tune in, because it's time for you to rise up strong…
How to Stay Strong During Life Challenges – 6 Reminders
You have A 100% track record for getting through everything in your life.
You're doing pretty darn awesome!
You're still breathing, heart beating, and you have what it takes to walk ahead powerfully.
Remind yourself every day – “I will be okay. Everything will be okay. I always get through somehow. I trust this.”
This too shall pass.
Challenges are like storms that arrive in your life, like a weather pattern. Storms have a life span. And your life span is longer than its!
The storm will come and it will go, and you will outlive it.
Remember, this is a season. Like everything in life, it will eventually pass. Thoughts pass. Feelings pass. Challenges pass.
Be patient and trust.
Diamonds are made under pressure, and so are you. Your challenges will be the making of you.
Life challenges pressuring you are softening your rough edges, calling you to evolve, buffering you to expose the power and beauty you have.
On the other side of this challenge, you will shine again, brighter than before.
All challenges morph into wisdom.
This is the gift that challenges bring. They come to offer you something.
Whatever you get out of a challenge in the form of greater understanding, skills and life wisdom, you will not only use in future (as a handy side benefit) but you will NEED in future.
There is Divine Order in your life. Maybe you don't know yet what this life challenge is gifting you, or maybe you do. Maybe you don't know yet what this wisdom is for, but you will find out soon enough!
Perhaps the wisdom is to support something you will DO in the future. Perhaps it is to help you SHARE that wisdom with someone else in your life, to uplift them on their journey. You needn't be concerned about why you're being given this wisdom, only that it is has purpose.
The Universe/Divinity (whatever word you use to describe a higher power at play in your life)… it moves us across each others life paths, in right time and right order. We end up learning through challenges and then being called forth into work, career, vocations, relationships, situations and places in order that we can contribute through the wisdom we have gained.
There is purpose to what you are going through. Trust this.
‘Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together‘
That's actually a Marilyn Monroe quote!
Remember that when it feels like life is falling apart, sometimes it's actually life's way of spring cleaning you (and your circumstances) to prepare you for the coming summer season of your life.
So even though it's tempting to think that life is beating down on you, pause to consider if maybe the slate is being wiped clean in order that something better can form.
What we resist persists. So, it's vital TO let go and flow.
Use this mantra on a daily basis… “This is happening, and I choose peace.”
Your attitude is EVERYTHING when it comes to staying strong. You will either become a victim to what is happening or you will rise up and be a victor.
The choice is yours, and it all starts in your mindset.
I hope these reminders are helpful for whatever life challenges you might be going through now, or that you may face on your forward journey.
