For the last nine weeks, every week, I’ve shared an idea that helped me during a very difficult time in my life. A time when I felt like I had been socked in the stomach and couldn’t breathe. We’ve all been there; we’ve all faced life challenges. It may be that you lost your job, lost a loved one, or so many other challenges in between.
Even though the situation may be different, the emotions are so similar. There are times when we feel scared, angry, and confused. Our confidence is shaken and we feel beaten down and exhausted.
The nine techniques I shared can help anyone get back on their feet again. That is, anyone who is ready to heal and begin to move forward to a new beginning.
Some of the things I talked about were:
- Making a game out of a difficult situation
- The 9 out of 10 factor
- A formula to visualize your future
- Knowing that you always made a good decision
- Paying attention to what comes back to you over and over again
- Acknowledging your self-worth
- The power of the word curious
These nine techniques truly helped me recreate myself. It took lots of time, and even more ups and downs along the way, but with patience and love from my family and friends, I now have a whole new life. These nine techniques really helped to pull me out of the darkness.
That’s why I want to share them with you. My hope is that you read something that will click, something that will help make your journey a little easier – a little stronger.
And now I reach out to you. I’d love to hear about any tips, techniques, secrets, that helped you through a difficult time. What kept you going and nudged you to get out of bed in the morning? What kept you moving forward when everything else told you to just give up? By sharing, you never know who you may help
After all, we are in this Game of Life together. Let’s bring a little fun and laughter and peace into each other’s life. Let’s reach out and pull each other up.
In the wise words of Flavia Weedn: “If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.”
