How To Find Your Feet Again After Tough Times

Life can be challenging and difficult sometimes, and it becomes difficult to find your feet again after a tragic moment in your life. I understand how hard life can get sometimes, and occasionally, it gets too much for everyone.

Unfortunately, I can't take away the bad things in life, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, they will always happen. Your life isn't bad if you have noticed a lot of bad things happening recently, bad things do happen, it just means you need to learn to self love and heal in a productive way. Everyone has to go through these challenges at some point.

You can't stop what happens in the world, but you can change how you perceive what happens. You can change how you react, and how mindful you are to the situation.

You can either let something destroy you, or you can stand up, stand tall, keep your high head and let it make you stronger.

When I look back at my life and also look at how I reacted to certain things, I realise that I could have done things differently, I could have loved myself a little more, I could have not blamed myself for every mistake I ever made.

I can just realise that I am human, mistakes happen, people make mistakes, and bad things happen too. But the best part is, they didn't defeat you before, and they won't defeat you again.

Whatever you are going through right now will pass and you will find your smile again.

You will find strength. It's amazing how strong you can be when things go wrong.

It's amazing how you can find strength from nowhere when you most need it, and right now you need it.

You need to prioritise yourself right now. You need to get your groove back. Listen to some good music, go for a run, make a good, healthy lunch. No one else is going to look after you and bring your smile back, so it's up to you.

If you look at humans in the world, look at everything we are capable of doing, you are just as capable as everyone who is successful, you are just as capable as everyone who is strong and happy.

You get out of life what you put in it. You can change how you're feeling and you're circumstances right now. You have the power to change what you want to change. No one is going to come and give you power, you already have the power within.

Don't worry if you get frustrated, that's OK, sometimes things can get on top of you. Let out your frustrations and start again.

Take things step by step, don't give yourself huge expectations to start off with. Fall in love with yourself and your life again.

You are strong and you are powerful. Don't ever forget that.
