5 – See The Situations As A Learning Experience
Life is a lesson.
This is something I tell myself on a daily basis.
Life is a lesson. A hard lesson. As life constantly tosses us in a classroom and doesn’t tell us what the subject is.
We are just meant to take a test.
Knowing that life is here to constantly test us is somehow empowering.
Because you realize that every day that you wake up you are tested to become a better person.
And you can only past each day’s test by taking into consideration what you learned from yesterday.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right?
When life makes “life” for you hard think about the hard times of the past because it will help guide you into making the right answers in the present.
6 – Look In The Mirror and…SMILE
There are so many benefits to smiling. In the article “Top 10 Reasons You Should Smile Every Day” reason number 2 was perhaps my favorite. Smiling helps to relieve stress.
And for those of us who have been discarded, it is NOT uncommon for many of us to feel STRESSED THE HELL OUT.
So many questions arise. Questions such as:
“What did I do?”
“Was I not good enough?”
“Who are they with?”
Why did this happen?”
Could I have done more?”
There are many questions that circulate throughout our minds. And this is one of the reasons so many of us stress out.
Smiling in a mirror not only helps to relieve the stress but it also allows us to be able to look at ourselves and see ourselves as the amazing people we REALLY ARE.
