The truth is, life has a rhythm and sometimes it flows with us and sometimes against us. No matter how hard we try this is a fact none of us can escape or be free from.
What we can do is learn how to ride out the storm, how to cope with rough waters without allowing ourselves to become unhappy. This is an absolutely achievable goal when we have our heads in the right place and when we are prepared to deal with life how it is rather than how we hope it would be.
Let’s go over some strategies on how best to accept life’s ups and downs and still be happy!
Know All Things Will Pass.
Whenever you feel like things are going to overwhelm you, making a point to remember that “this very thing, like all things will pass” can be your life jacket. And it’s true.
Think back to when you have faced adversity it the past and successfully overcame it. We’ve all been in a situation that seemed hopeless and appearing like it would never end, but it did. It’s all about having the inner fortitude to carry on, and carry on with a smile. This approach could even make you an inspiration for others close to you! We’re all examples for our loved ones when the chips are down.
Keep Your Chin Up.
Defeatist talk, body language and thoughts can be the worst enemy of your happiness. You can literally snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat by making the choice to control these factors and make them work for you rather than against you. Keeping your chin up, your shoulders back and a smile on your face can “trick” your subconscious into being happy. When you are feeling more positive you will have more mental and physical resources available to allow you to get out of the tough spot you find yourself in. Athletes know this secret. Now you do too!
