Inner Sunshine



“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”
T.S. Eliot

Mental strength is built through small, daily victories. It is the individual choices we make daily that build our ‘mental strength‘ muscles. We all want this kind of strength, but it is not a wish. If you want it, you have to do something about it.

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your daily decisions. You can challenge yourself to change the way you respond to life.

Each new day is a chance to make simple change……. challenge yourself to smile genuinely and gratefully.

When it seems like problems are stacking up, challenge yourself to face these problems positively.

When you are completely uncertain about what the future will bring, challenge yourself to make the best and most positive use of the present.

When you have two good choices, challenge yourself to go with the one that scares you the most, because that is the one that is going to help you grow.

When a negative situation gets emotional, take a deep breath, and challenge yourself to remember that inner peace begins the moment you decide not to let another person or event control your emotions.

Remember you may get knocked down on the outside, but the key to living is learning how to get up on the inside. Choose to do one small thing that frightens you today. Find you inner sunshine…….You are stronger than you realise.

“The sun shines not on us but in us.”
John Muir
