I am at that point in my life now where everything is changing and not always for the better. Life likes throwing me some curve balls and they keep knocking me down.
Not going to lie it’s been tough.
However I have realised I need to stop spending most of my time on the floor and get back up and take charge. We can never predict some of the curve balls that are coming our way but we can limit the amount of damage that they cause and use them to our advantage.
I know easier said than done right?
But you can say that about anything.
We might not know what around the corner but doesn’t mean we can’t be prepared.
Why are we sat there preparing for all the things that can go wrong but ignoring everything that can go right? We are wasting all of our resources on something that might not even happen.
Someone once said to me imagine yourself as a battery you have 100% but you have to split that between everything in your life.
So for example 30% on work/school 20% on family 40% on friends etc. what happens when you have nothing to give out any more?
But you also have to imagine that you get percentages back to help replenish your charge like 20% from family and 30% from work/ school but what happens when you are putting in 40% on friends but only getting 10% back. Doesn’t that mean that you are investing more than you are getting back?
Now think of this in regards to the challenges you face if you are wasting so much energy worrying and expecting the worse you are wasting your resources. You are getting nothing back out of that.
We should be using all the challenges that we face as a driving force that can make our lives so much better and push us to do things that we never had the drive to do.
The saying that everything happens for a reason is Cliché but makes sense. We seem to forget that we can’t change something that happens to us its already happened. What we can change is the out come and where it will lead us in the future.
We can’t change the past or present but the future is ours to control so it’s about time that we took charge and decided what will happen to us.
