And at the moment, I feel like I am not the strong person I used to be. I remember that. I was not in a happy place at the time. It felt like my whole world was crashing down around me. It felt like thing just took a turn for the worst and there was no light at the end of my tunnel.
So now it feels like the same thing is happening all over again. It has been just one thing after another, after another. But luckily I happen to come across a book. Yes, a book! We bought this book a few weeks back after having breakfast at Cracker Barrel. It is called Think Positive Thoughts Everyday. I have been trying to stay positive. But it had been hard. I think I have been having a hard time because I saw and heard a lot of negativity. I still have that same negativity all around me. I just need to teach myself to ignore it all and only accept the positive and the good. I read that to have a positive outlook on life and the situations you are going through you have to surround yourself with positive people. People who can lift you up when you are down. People who encourage you to try and never give up. I am lucky to have my husband there for me. He is the only person at the moment who has encouraged me to keep going. He hears me out when I'm having a bad day. Lately it feels like I have been having more bad days than good ones. But I always have to remind myself that tomorrow is a fresh start.
This book really opened my eyes. I now see that everything that we are going through right now is all happening for a reason. This will make me a stronger person. All I have to do is believe, trust in myself and have faith in God. He is with me at all times. Even in my darkest days he is the one holding the light at the end of the tunnel. Because he already knows that I can get through all of this.
A month now or two months, we can look back and smile. We can smile at knowing we made it. We didn't let all the bad win. We fought through it all and came out stronger!
So whenever you feel like the world around you is coming down on top of you. Just smile and remember it is only one day, There are many more days ahead of you that will be better than today. Think positive and you can do anything you want!
