When you are feeling like the world has turned against you, and all of the dreams and aspirations you had for the near future have shattered before your eyes, take a step back and look at the bigger picture of your life: "be happy for this moment, this moment is your life." Maybe staying positive has been difficult, but in reality, it is easy to focus on the problems that are bothering us at one specific moment, making us blind to all of the beauty around us. This moment of struggle will soon become part of the history of our lives, and it can have a great impact on shaping us to become who we want to be in the future.
This precise moment is a miracle. This precise moment can help us turn our lives around. Instead of focusing on the problems, search around for solutions...don´t lose focus.
It´s time for growth. This is our second change! A chance to reconsider our goals and objectives. This is a chance to ask ourselves: is what we are putting our efforts on, helping us get to where we ultimately want to be in our careers or life? If the answer is yes, then, give yourself a second chance. This is the chance to re learn, to do it all over again, only better!
Sometimes, things get hard, but they may lead us to an unexpected place: a moment of enlightenment. There is little appreciation for projects that are achieved quickly and easily. You will never go back to that day you passed that exam with an amazing grade without any effort. You will however remember that time you failed that big exam and had the change to turn it around next time. You will be filled with pride and that amazing feeling of accomplishment.
So, dust yourself off. Remember that our minds can trick us to think that obstacles are harder than they truly are. Step back and look at the bigger picture. Find the beauty in this moment, as this moment is your life.
