I want to apologize as to why I haven’t been blogging lately. When unexpected events happen in your life, blogging ends up taking a back seat in my life since it has the lowest priority. Personally, I do miss blogging because it gives me a creative outlet and is something that I enjoy and is just for me. 🙂 So please have some patience until my next blog post.
Here are some tips when going through difficult times:
- Have a support group: It’s great to have family and friends to talk about what you are going through. It helps to get stuff out so you don’t keep everything bottled up inside. Keeping your problems inside of you is toxic. It’s also great to find organizations that know exactly what you are going through so you don’t feel alone and know what to do in various situations.
- It’s OK to ask for help: Although you like to be independent, sometimes it’s best to ask for help from family and friends. You will stress yourself out by trying to do it all. You can’t do everything yourself, so it’s good to rely on “the village” to help.
- Take everything one day at a time: You can easily get overwhelmed and can regret about what happened in the past and worry about the future. In the end, you only have today to make a difference. Every day is always different, so just deal with what is in front of you at the moment and go from there.
- Try to be positive and grateful: Although it’s difficult being positive and trying to find something to be thankful for when things seem to be going wrong, it’s good to find that silver lining. Whatever situation you are in can always be worse, so be thankful and try to be positive about everything that is going on.
- Have faith in God: This helps me greatly. I try to lift up my worries to God so I don’t worry too much. It helps me to focus on the day-to-day things that I need to accomplish for my family.
- Don’t forget about yourself and find a hobby. Make the time to do things you enjoy so that you can remain positive and rested while taking care of everyone else.
Life is a rollercoaster ride—it has a lot of ups and downs. It’s really how you react to what is given to you that makes all the difference.
