We all have days when we feel like the walls are closing in and our lives are overwhelmed with heavy burdens. Life can feel like a relentless battle, throwing us into situations that make us question everything about ourselves. Yesterday was one of those days for me!
Early on things looked impossible, then a joyful piece of news from people I love came in and OMGoddess, did that wake me up and turn things around! The connection and remembrance that none of us are alone in life switched things from bad to amazing. My heart opened so wide being able to share in someone else's joy and their beaming smile.
I remind myself that no matter what life throws at me, resilience comes from within. We can turn our losses into opportunities for growth, learning, and understanding of ourselves and others around us. We can find strength in any situation through perseverance and hard work - even when things seem impossible. And there is always the "get out of your own way and go find joy" technique.
The technique: when life gets tough, it can help to turn towards things that bring us joy and solace. Whether going for a run in nature, listening to music, or connecting with friends or family, taking the time to make space for joy can be hugely beneficial in helping us find peace and recalibrate to harmony.
Yesterday I was reminded that there is resilience in the power of togetherness and a light that shines brighter when shared with others through meaningful connections, collaboration, and understanding.
I ended the day on a rooftop lounge by the sea with friends. We laughed and talked, my friend danced to the beats the DJ was putting down; it was joyful. It was a complete shift from what seemed impossible and overwhelming in the morning.
Take a moment to remember that you are not alone on this journey, even if it may feel like it at times. There is support out there, and together we are stronger. Sometimes we have to remember that we don't have to go it alone and work harder to get out of our own way.
