Hi friends! Wow, I can’t believe we are almost at the end of our 21 Day Gratitude Challenge. I hope you are starting to notice the difference already. And if you haven’t, that’s okay, sometimes things take a little while for great things to harvest.
Today, we are going to express our gratitude for our hardships and how we’ve overcame a challenge in our lives. Our challenges is what strengthens us. These experiences makes us realize what we truly want in life. We realized that we owe ourselves the best life possible. Maybe we come to the realization that we deserve a better job, where our work gets appreciated; a new job bring us new and great opportunities. Look for something better. Trust me. Staying at a job for too long, especially if you are unhappy, is almost like a waste of life. Your days are far more valuable to be anything but happy.
Or perhaps you come to the realization that you’re at the end of a loveless relationship or you realize that this isn’t going in a direction you had thought it was going in. And it’s okay to end a relationship or even take a break from each other. Just make sure you and your partner are respectful of each other.
For me, I feel like I need a new job because the one that I currently have just isn’t making me happy right now. So I just want something new and something that is fulfilling.
Do not let your hardships define who you are, but use them as stepping stones to get where you need to be. These kinds of changes don’t happen overnight. Be patient and gentle on yourself.
Whenever you overcome something you thought you couldn’t, you learn to appreciate your hard work and how you got there. Life and success aren’t mapped out in straight lines, so just because it took a little while longer than you thought it would, don’t be so hard on yourself.
For example, perhaps you are 33, and want to go back to school and pursue a different career like nursing. You might think that you’re “too old” because it is a four year major. Well guess what? In four years you’ll still be 37, you may as be a nurse too. So you go and get that major!
And also another thing is, you shouldn’t compare yourself to other people. Everything will come to you when it is needed to come to you, when you need it. Not a minute late or earlier. This is where you are supposed to be. Don’t compare your chapter, to someone else’s book. Keep doing you. And never do anything you don’t want to do. Never let others persuade or pressure you into doing something you don’t want to do.
Don’t let anything or anyone bring you down. You go out and preserve. You can triumph your obstacles. I believe in you. Chase your dreams, and don’t let your hardships stop you from being you are destined to be.

And now I see the sunrise
Now, I feel glorious.”-Macklemore ft. Skylar Grey, Glorious
