Just One Step To Rising Above Down Moments.

Things happen, circumstances crop up, Dark times hit us and we sometimes hit rock bottom. Down moments cannot be escaped. It’s a part of life. It’s a part of the journey.

You’ll cry, you’ll shed tears uncontrollably, sometimes you may even find yourself entertaining suicidal thoughts.

Your heart may get shattered and broken by the person you’ve loved with everything you had.

Your business may go down the drain within a very short time.

You may lose all the money in your account to fraudsters. Or, you may lose a loved one.

You may even fail a major examination or not get admitted to the school of your choice.

In different ways, in diverse forms, the unexpected happens. Moments that bring you down emotionally and leave you drained.

And it’s normal. It’s a part of life. Those down moments help us appreciate and value our ‘up’ Moments. They spice up life and give us the joy of victory when we win.

You can be in the driver’s seat of your life. You can take control of how you react and how long you spend brooding over what happened or what didn’t happen.

I know it’s not easy, I understand that some situations come unexpectedly and throw us off balance. Nevertheless, we can choose to either find back our balance or stay right there on the ground and cry.

One way I have been always able to stand up back and keep moving is by telling myself that this right here, is part of my story.

I know I have a story to tell. I know my life is like a movie script. I know there are people, thousands of them who will go through in the future what I’m going through today.

And I know that when I stand before those people, the easiest way to encourage and help them back to their feet would be to share my own story with them.

And so, when my heart gets broken, I cry and find back my balance because this is part of my story.

When my business fail and I get rejected at work, I just get upset, cry, wipe the tears and keep moving because this is part of my story.

When I get persecutions for trying to do something good, I just wipe the tears when they come and go on with what I do because someday, I’m gonna tell this story of how I made it work.

When stuff happens, I sit back, try as much as I can to hold my peace and then let things go because I know this is just part of my story.

You have a story to tell, see your down moments as spices. They spice up your story, they make your story interesting, peculiar and irresistible.

From this moment, make the decision to always make the most of your life no matter what happens, because you know that it is a part of your story.

Over to you.
