It's here! The last day of 2019...This was such an interesting year for me, challenging - but also rewarding! I have learned to accept that each and every year will be exactly this: Ups and downs, sadness and happiness, laughter and tears. It's what it's supposed to be! It's impossible to have only good days, even though we hope for those. It's also impossible to only have sadness - we need both to have balance in our life.
It really comes down to how we deal with negativity, stress, failure, and sadness that defines our year overall.
I truly believe that the hard times in our life are our best teacher. We grow the most in our difficult days and come out on the other side stronger, wiser, and better.
Over the last few years this is what I have learned....I have had wonderful successes, and had gone through some of the hardest and most challenging experiences.
But overall, I rose above it all, because I have finally learned how to deal.
THIS IS LIFE.
We are always going to go through things - good and bad. We are going to have to deal with things as long as we are alive, and I find beauty and freedom in this knowledge.
We can cruise through life easier with understanding and KNOWING that there is always going to be sunshine after rain - that things in life ALWAYS work out - eventually, and that negativity and stress are just simply a part of our life and existence.
Knowing this helps me maintain my sanity in this crazy thing we call life.
I hope your New Year brings you these:
1. COURAGE to tackle the hardest obstacles.
2. PERSEVERANCE to outlast hardships.
3. OPTIMISM to always find positive in everything!
4. STRENGTH to survive anything thrown at you.
And last but not least:
5. SMILE...because just a little smile you GIVE or RECEIVE can turn the hardest day into something beautiful and magical.
