Having the confidence to deal with life’s events
What are you going through right now?
What has got your attention?
What is stopping you from enjoying today?
During our lifetime, we will experience many events.
Some of which we will welcome with open arms, like getting married, becoming a parent, starting your first job and starting a new business.
But on the flip side, there will be events that we wish hadn’t happened, like losing a job, losing a loved one and separating from the love of your life.
Just over five years ago, I had become a mum, for the second time, I left my successful corporate job and I decided to start my own business doing something that I had no knowledge of. That’s a lot to deal with in a short space of time.
Granted, they were all my decisions but that doesn’t make it easy. I consciously put myself in situations that were alien to me and that meant learning as I was living.
It’s only now, after the events, that I can see more clearly what I have experienced. The highs and the lows. The twists and the turns. The moments of certainty followed by the moments of doubts. The rush of different emotions that have distracted me from what really matters.
It’s challenging. Life is challenging.
However, what I have learnt is it’s how we deal with these events that will determine how our reality turns out.
We get to decide what happens next.
We can dwell on what has happened and constantly focus on the negative or we can choose to see the learning in the situation and use this to propel us forward in the direction that we want to go.
So when life as you know it is shifting and you feel like you’re losing control remember the following.
This moment in time is temporary
What you are experiencing now doesn’t have to be forever. It might feel uncomfortable, awkward and as if you have no idea what is going on, but, this too shall pass. You will find your feet. You will regain your balance. You will find the path that is right for you.
It starts by accepting the present so you can more clearly see what you want to do next.
This is just the next chapter of my life
Just like a book, our life will have many chapters. And as we experience the different chapters of our life we too will change. You see, the experiences we have and the people we meet influence what we become.
But we have a choice. We can choose to embrace what we learn through those experiences to become the best versions of ourselves.
You get to decide what happens next
It is true. What happens next is down to you. The choice may be difficult and it may require great courage, but you still get to choose. Why not decide to take the action that your future self will thank you for?
It is your life. How you decide to lead it is up to you. How you decide to respond to life’s events is your choice. I invite you to feel the feelings and emotions of what is going on and then choose what is best for you, even if it means taking the more challenging route.
What will you choose?
