All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.”
Robert F. Kennedy

.
In life, when hard times hit, and the challenges we face are great, we can either let our situation define us, let it destroy us or let it strengthen us. The choice is ours to make.

.
In other words, life is not perfect, but it can be good. Our goal should not be to create a perfect life, but to live an imperfect life in profound wonder. To get up every morning and take a good look around in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is extraordinary. Every day is a gift. Never treat life casually.Whatever life throws at you even if it hurts you try to choose to be strong and fight through it. Remember, strong walls shake but never collapse.

.
Take your pain and turn it into something great. Put your energy towards bettering your life and starting something new.

.
When we are thankful for what we have, we are always rewarded with more. Try to stay positive and look for the opportunities. Always believing that things will get better. Change your thoughts and you change your reality.

.
If you believe strongly in something, do not be afraid to fight for it.You can beat fear if you face it. Be courageous! And remember that courage does not mean you do not get afraid; courage means you do not let fear stop you from moving forward with your life.

.
Ultimately, our happiness depends on our self-reliance – our unshakable willingness to take responsibility for our life from this moment forward, regardless of who had a hand in making it the way it is now. It is about taking control of your present circumstances, thinking for yourself, and making a firm choice to choose differently. It is about being the hero of your life, not the victim.

.
Take a look around, with your eyes earnestly open to the possibilities before you. Much of what you fear does not exist. Much of what you love is closer than you realise. You are just one brief thought away from understanding the blessing that is your life. Look at your life with a positive attitude.

.
When times are tough, you must be tougher. Do not hope for an easy life, but that you uncover the strength to endure a tough times. Use your experiences to take you forward, being stronger and wiser.

.
“The old idea is that when tragedy strikes or when an obstacle blocks us, there are only two possibilities. We either become a smaller person or we become a bigger person. If it’s a real life change you cannot come out the same. So therefore, you’re either going to come out smaller or you are going to rise up and ultimately come out of it a bigger person.”
Michael Meade
