Don’t Give Up You are Strong
Remember that it’s perfectly natural to be fearful of what you don’t know. The goal here is not to let yourself lose control, or panic to the point where the emotions are running your life, instead of your rational mind.
After all, you’re alive. Hopefully you’re in good health; your family is well fed; you have a roof over your head.
They all sound like “so what?” moments, but how many people in the world have never had such luxuries? Be thankful for what you have, for the good in your life.
You’d be amazed at how the simple act of gratitude can give you a peace you’ve never known.
You don’t have to lie to yourself, or make up fairy tales. You can face reality head on, and know that it really is the truth that no matter how bad things are, they won’t be this way forever.
Alternately - though this may not seem to be much comfort - there is a measure of peace is knowing that as bad as things are, yes, they really could be worse. (Now it’s your job not to obsess on what could be around the bend. You’ve got enough on your plate.)
Focus on the good things in your life, because like fear, things for which to be grateful are just as real. Don’t focus solely on what you may have temporarily lost, when you must also recognize that the good is just as real as what’s bad.
Dedicated to a dear friend of mine, who is going threw some difficult times as we all do in some time in our lives time.
The LOVE and power of a red Camellia will help you get strength and be strong.
