Staying Strong When Everything Goes Wrong! SA Kids Newsletter Jun 2016

Staying Strong

Dear Parents,

This newsletter may not be baby or child related, but if we, as parents, are going through a very difficult period and do not know how to deal with it, then our children will also suffer.

I am sure that we have all dealt with our fair share of difficult times over the years; rape, losing loved ones, illnesses, financial hardship, business turmoil, etc... and you probably thought that it would never end. But it does! With a bit of motivation and with the correct mind-set, the road could be a bit less bumpy. Is it easy you ask!? No, but if I can do it, then so can you...  

If you happen to be one of the blessed people going through a great period in your life, without any stress right now, then please think of a friend who may find this article helpful and share the link with them. 

"People and circumstances will occasionally break you down. But if you keep your mind focused, your heart open to love, and continue to put one foot in front of the other, you can recover the pieces, rebuild, and come back much stronger and happier than you ever would have been otherwise”

Here are just a few short extracts from Marc & Angel Hack Life. Please click here to read the full article.

  • Fully accept the reality of what is: Letting go of needless expectations is your first step to happiness.
  • Remind yourself that everything in life is temporary: So if things are good right now, enjoy it. It won’t last forever. If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either. Nothing lasts.
  • Push yourself to take another step, and another, no matter what: Resolve to persevere by making tiny fixes every day.
  • Use positivity, rather than letting negativity use you: The most powerful time to be positive is precisely when everything around you is not so positive.
  • Focus on making tiny fixes: It’s these minor tweaks that take you from where you are to where you want to be in the long run.
  • Look for something small to appreciate: At the end of the day, it’s not happiness that makes us thankful, but thankfulness that makes us happy.
  • Give yourself the extra attention you need and deserve: It’s not your job to change who you are in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. You are worthwhile.

So remember that everyone suffers in life at some point. Everyone feels lost sometimes. The key is using your experiences to grow, inch by inch. When you apply what you’re learning to your future choices and actions, you move forward not backward. You become stronger and wiser. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it in the end.

Love and Blessings
