When we are going through the hard time, life seems miserable despite having all the things we wish. This happened to me in the last month. June was a month when my world turned upside down, once again and I felt broken completely. This time, I felt like, I would never succeed to rise again. This is not the first time I felt broken. I have been broken from inside many times before that. Every time I fell and broke, I managed to rise again. But, this time, it took me long to accept the reality and getting myself ready to let go of the past. Until I did it, I was unable to move on in life. Gradually, after fighting hard with my own self, I made myself understand that whatever I lost will never come back to me. What I didn’t find will never come to my life. Whatever I didn’t receive, it was not for me.
Rather, I should focus on what I have, now. I should count my blessings and find purpose to move on. I am a brave girl with a strong will power and a firm believer in the power of dreaming. So, how could I let myself drown into tears and fears? Never. It’s obvious to fall from the pinnacle of success, to face failures, to do mistakes. But, there is always hope to walk ahead. This is how I define life.
So, you may wonder when life is pushing you hard and you don’t feel life is adventurous, how could you find hope and positivity around you and your tiny world?
I am going to write here some tricks that worked for me well. I started believing that I have nothing left to do on life. But, there is always someone who will tell you who will remind you how strong and brave you are. It’s your inner voice. When I introspect, I found my voice back and I was ready to move on in life.
Here are the ways how I embraced positivity during my hard time:
1. Write a positive quote:
I started writing positive quotes. I searched for inspiration and wrote my own quote on the journal. Thus, I found positive vibes around me. I started receiving positive vibes from outside and also from inside. It helped me to keep going.
2. Be grateful:
Gratitude helps you to find your life’s blessings. There are lots of things and people in your life to be grateful. It would be better if you can maintain a gratitude journal in this phase to write your heart out there. List the names of things, people around you who are the motivational force for you, whose presence and company you enjoy, whose name in your life lighten up your face. Be grateful to everything you have received so far. They’re life’s rewards for you.
3. Accept yourself:
Accepting yourself helps you to reduce the burden of loss and accepting the reality helps you to let the past go. Letting go the memories that bring tears in your eyes always make you stronger from inside. Eventually, you will find the way to move on.
4. Let it go:
As said, to find positivity in your hard time, it’s most important that you let go of your memories of the part of life that will bring only negative vibes to you. They make you weak. Eventually, you find life has no meaning at all. But, when you ask yourself that if they hold any purpose to you, your inner voice will always answer you a big no. So, it’s apt to let the memories go away with all your dark period. Say to yourself, “Now, it’s time to embrace new beginning, new identity. I am starting everything anew. “
When life pushes you hard, that time, you need to find a corner and start introspection. You are hiding a stronger version of yourself, within this cocooned self. So, it’s the great time to hear the voice within. Try to introspect your flaws that could be turned to your strength too. Try to embrace the inner peace.
6. Hear the void:
In this phase, you may feel empty from inside. But seeker, remember one thing. Emptiness is the roaring storm in disguise. This time, you need to pause and reflect to the void. Perhaps, you would find the purpose you were searching for so long.
7. Be your own inspiration:
Always be your own inspiration. Before going to be inspired by a stranger from the outer world, you must be inspired by yourself first. Just look behind, the road you have travelled so far. It’s always there to inspire you to walk ahead.
8. Pick a good habit:
Picking a good habit is always inspiration. Because this way, you meet the one you have seen very long ago. You meet the one you were, once. You meet the one you have left behind, so far, many years ago. And this will help you to rejuvenate.
9. Find positivity in little things:
We have a genuine tendency to ignore the little things around us. But, I have realized, when life seems miserable and we can’t find hope, little beauties around us always help to find positive vibes. They are the most beautiful gifts on earth.
10. Find the peace within:
Finding the peace within is one of the best ways to get motivated from within. I know, in this phase of life, finding the peace within is most difficult task one can ever think of. But, try to find a lonely corner and make solitude your guide. Inhale deeper and stay calm. Finding the inner calmness will heal your wounds.
11. Celebrate yourself:
Seeker, you are brave, you are beautiful. Trust me, you are the most powerful one I have ever seen. Your uniqueness define you best. Celebrate yourself everyday. Remember, you deserve the best. Always.
So, this way, I tried to calm myself, heal myself and celebrate myself. I tried to find positivity in every little thing around me. I wrote down about them on my journal. I found the inner peace. And now, I am on my way of moving on in life. Because I know, life is big and I have to celebrate this beautiful gift with everything I have. Right now, right here.
