Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 20)

say 20

Today we are going to talk about #2 on our list of things we should say more often.

Life is tough, but so are you.

Most of the time life can be pretty difficult.  It is very rare that the stars all line up and everything seems to be going our way.  Usually, things will go wrong.  During these times life can seem really tough.  When they do, we have to have the ability to tell ourselves that we are tougher and we will get through this tough time.

There are times when life will really knock the wind out of your sails.  It could be the death of a family member or close friend, a bad medical report, a major repair bill comes up that you can’t afford.  There can also be times where a lot of little things seem to go wrong and the little things compound and lead to a real sense of futility.

It is during these times that we have to find the ability within ourselves to get through them and not let life get the better of you.  If you have a relationship with God, this would be the perfect time to pray and let God take some of the burden off of you.  It is also a good idea to confide in a close friend or family member.  They can give advice, help you see things from a different perspective, and maybe take some of the load off of you.

As humans, we were meant to be in relationship with each other so when tough things come, it is not the time to crawl into a hole and try to isolate yourself from everyone.  When you do this, it can make the tough times seem even more overwhelming.

Our assignment this week is to remember that even though life can be tough, we are tough too so we should not let tough times defeat us.  Look to God and other people to help you when you begin to feel overwhelmed and let them help you out of your tough spot.  If everything is going absolutely great in your life right now, then find someone else who seems to be struggling and offer to help them.  We were meant to go through life together so lets not forget that when help is needed the very most.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
