Life is a beautiful gift and as individuals, we must embrace every new day with joy and happiness. It may not be perfect or smooth sailing, but nevertheless, enjoy it to its fullest the best possible way you can.

Growing up years ago, I had so many difficult moments. These were moments when I thought I won’t be able to overcome. Some days were so difficult, that I felt overwhelmed with emotions and cried myself to sleep.

Life is a journey, and we are like passengers on a mission. Along the bumpy journey of life, there may be a few stops and some nasty bumps that may shake us a little bit. That is fine, if we understand these difficult moments will come and go.

How did I overcome my difficult moments?

Pretty good question I must say. I tried to always look at the bright side of life. It is not an easy task to do, however, especially when it’s so gloomy and there seems to be no ray of sunshine.

Still, I always see the positive in every negative situation I go through in life. It may never make sense then, but months or years later, it will dawn on you, why these things had to happen.

A key ingredient that can sustain us in times of difficulty, is hope. “Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today”
