I’m afraid the blue devils have got the best of me today. Some days are just like that for me! So I pulled up Marc and Angel’s post 75 Reminders for Tough Times. Very good things to remember when life is tough…here are just a few that helped me today:
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying. (Read Unstoppable.)Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you’re the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling is a lie. And if you just hold on, someone will find you and help make it better. Because we all need a little help sometimes – someone to help us hear the music in our world. To remind us that it won’t always be this way. That someone is out there right now.
There are few joys in life that equal a good conversation, a good read, a good walk, a good hug, a good smile, or a good friend.
No matter how cautiously you choose your words, someone will always twist them around and misinterpret what you say. So just say what you need to say.
In order to be creative, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
If you are passionate about something, pursue it, no matter what anyone else thinks. That’s how dreams are achieved.
If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists. It rewards people who get things done. And the only way to get things done is to be imperfect 99% of the time.
Feelings, good and bad, always come and go.
We are not alone. No matter how bizarre or embarrassed or pathetic we feel about our own situation, there will be others out there experiencing the same emotions. When you hear yourself say “I am all alone,” it is your mind trying to sell you a lie so you will continue to feel sorry for yourself.
Money is a renewable resource. If you lose some money, don’t sweat it. You can always make more. However, if you spend valuable time stressing over money, or lost opportunity, you’ll never get that time back. Time is more valuable than money – time is the greatest constituent of life.
Never let people know that they got to you. Ignore them. Hold your head up high and pretend all their negative remarks don’t even phase you, and someday they actually won’t.
No matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something. Win-Win.
You can press forward long after you can’t. It’s just a matter of wanting it bad enough.
You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life.
