Life Happens But You Happen To Be Stronger

Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

Sometimes things get so hectic. For a moment, we get lost in the myriad of difficulties we are going through. When facing obstacles or challenges, the almost immediate reaction is usually a surge of negative feelings, right? The great news is we have the power to turn things around. When life happens, remember that you happen to be stronger than anything else you may be going through.

Sometimes, life smacks us in the face, right? ‘Why me? Why now? What did I do to attract this in my life’? So many unanswered questions. The thing is, does it really matter to know why? Will it change anything to the situation at hand? I do not think so. Rather focus on what you can do. Ask yourself how to sort out whatever you are going through. If it is a medical condition, go see that doctor, pray for healing and work your way towards having a better health. Make the right choices : workout, drink more water, cut down your sugar intake, adapt your diet, etc. Do what is in your power and in the process, you will exert your power. Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

Relationships can be such a blessing when all the elements are gathered. You may find that you do not understand each other anymore. You feel that the connection is gone. You are always unhappy and constantly fighting each other. A relationship is a lifelong commitment that requires CONSTANT love, prayer, compromise, conscious action from each partner. If you really care for each other and want to make it work, be ready to communicate openly about everything, to take action towards improving the relationship, to stop assuming things and over-analyzing things. It can be hard but it is possible to nurture love, rekindle love, increase the love for one another. I have been with my handsome and loving husband for about 17 years. You know what? I love him more than ever and I feel more loved than ever. He is my gift from God and I am his gift from God. I pray for him every single day of my life and I know that our Almighty God hears my prayers. We still call each other every single day when he is away on a business trip and guess what? We sometimes meet for lunch during break while living in the same house. The only third person in our couple has been and will always be God. Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

Business can be a serious thorn in one’s side. However, it all comes down to your paradigms. What may appear as a failure can actually be a benefit in disguise. What may appear as a difficulty can actually be a learning curve. I have been working as an entrepreneur for the last 3 years and I learned a lot. I applauded the ups and learned from my downs. Most importantly, I strongly believe that I have greatness within me and more extraordinary things will happen to my business. I learned to focus on what makes me grow. Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

Life happens, right? But guess what?!! you happen to be stronger than anything you might be going through. So make sure that when life happens, you show up and make things happen for you. Eva Arissani

You may be young, going through a rough patch. Are you facing teenage pregnancy? bullying? depression? Are you feeling as if you did not belong? You are going through a difficult phase but let me tell you this : You have the power to overcome this. You have the power to face anything that life throws at you. Why? The answer is simple : Each one of us is unique, each one of us has a gift, each one of us is made of unexplored natural resources. Each one of us has the power to turn things around and to make life regret her actions LOL. Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

As women, we juggle lots of different things. We run from one meeting to another – on the way to a meeting, we get a phone call from the school or a phone call from hubby about a particular issue. We must think about lunch, supper, run our houses, take care of the kids, manage our businesses and make sure they are up and running, if pregnant, deal with hormones and the joys of labour, take care of hubby, take care of our close families and in-laws, strive to nurture friendships and dream of having a social life – LOL- We strive to stay fit, healthy, sane and emotionally balanced. We think of / for others and so many times – forget about ourselves. As we draw closer to the International Women’s Day, let us stop for a moment. BREATHE IN BREATHE OUT. Acknowledge your wins. You are a WONDER WOMAN. Life happens but you happen to be stronger.

Life happens, right? But guess what?!! you happen to be stronger than anything you might be going through. So make sure that when life happens, you show up and make things happen for you. It is time to step into your greatness and to unleash the power within.
