Overcoming Adversity
Powerful words to live by! I have spent many a moment on the bitter path & often get stuck there. It is always helpful to me when I am reminded that I am not the only one facing adversity. When the storms have passed, sometimes I feel better but not always. I’m still a work in progress. 🙏
Overcoming adversity
Choosing the path to become better during an adverse event is an ongoing struggle, I find. Every day I wake up and work to overcome negative thoughts that try to hold me on the path towards bitterness. Making sure I pause and reflect on the good things in my life, and the better choices I have made is a small way to remind myself in the mornings not to listen to that part of me that wants to join the chorus of bitter thoughts that want to turn a beautiful day dark.
choose better
love that slogan, easy to remember and makes for a great affirmation
Overcoming adversity
I need to allow myself to heal but not dwell on things I need to overcome
Bad is different for everyone
Everyone has their own problems and people like to use the excuse that there are always people who have it worse. While that is true we can’t forget that some people do have terrible life our problems no matter how insignificant they may seem ARE VALID! This helped me remember that.
Bitter or Better
You have a choice when facing adversity in your life. You can let it make you bitter. Or you can choose the path to make you better. It’s okay to have a pity party for yourself when adversity strikes. However it is important to get back up and move forward from the experience.
The battle and the hat
Better or bitter... thats a good point. And one of it it is, even if we don‘t consciously or refuse to choose. Its like the only real battle is the one between letting go and hanging in. And its on us to choose. Well, if we don‘t choose better one, we land on the other end of the stick, only because we can‘t get our head out of our butt ... i learned early on: it‘s not a hat anyway.
Thanks Dave. I love your talks!!!
His talks always make me think. I am generally positive except for work when I can get a little bitter due to their past actions. I will work on this.
Better over bitter
I am going to focus on feeling better over bitter; one will come to pass and I get to choose which is my response to the situation.
I choose to be better through this adversity. Life is too short and life is good. I will do my best to put a smile on my face and to put the past behind and move forward. I believe and I know in my heart that better things are awaiting for me and I want to take this chance and embrace it. I trust in the Lord
This lesson reminded me that I can control how I react to adversity. I needed to hear that today so I can go back to my work desk and reset my approach.
