Losing a loved one, getting married, having babies, starting a new job, quitting a job, flood, fire outbreak, buying your dream house, divorce, separation, promotion, raising capital, becoming a father, sickness, foreclosure, asset repossession, going to varsity, dealing with infidelity, downsizing, all of these, are few of life inevitable occurrences we may all likely go through.
As we journey through life, we will experience both the "winter days and the summer, the spring and the autumn." The sad reality is, none of these seasons gives a notice when they will arrive, some season come as planned, while others arrived unplanned. You see, we cannot change the direction of the wind, we can only adjust ourselves. The death of a loved one is something we often don't see coming, but sometimes, we just need to brace ourselves up once this season arrives and learn to move on.
During a difficult or painful transition, perhaps a job loss, it's easy to become cynical, negative, or bitter about life and what this does is, it cloud our mind to all other opportunities around us. In life, setbacks are inevitable, but misery is always a choice. You can either pick yourself back up or stay resentful. Have learned that happiness is a choice and so also is misery. Alexandra Graham Bell once says, when one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
In challenging times, you will learn more about yourself, if you take time to reflect, introspect and take inventory of how you responded to those painful seasons. Embrace each phase of your life with positivity, you are better off standing up to life challenges with a positive mental attitude.
It is erroneous to believe, that alcohol or drug use will be of help during life painful transition, no, it only makes it worse. Seek the support of friends and family members, especially those who accept you without judging you and encourage you to express your true feelings. A time of transition is also an excellent time to seek the support of mental health professional. He or she can guide you through the transition process in a safe and supportive environment.
Life is in phases, you will travel through the rough road, as Les Brown says, you will fail your way to success, but hold your head up. What doesn't kill you make you stronger. Life will take you through a series of transitions, either in your career, finances, relationships, or business, don't give in and don't give up.
Don't blame your past. Stop complaining about things you cannot change. Take ownership of your life. Grow in your transition and don't lose your zest for life. Through your thick and thin you will excel and in hindsight, you will be glad you went through some of the things you went through. Don't just go through life circumstances, grow through them. Stay hopeful, remain optimistic because, tough time never last, only tough people do. Whatever current transition you are in right now, be it, joy, happiness, growth, fulfillment, or be it, pain, sorrow, backwardness, regret, hold your head up. Celebrate your success, but heed the lessons of failure.
