In Difficult Times Look For Hope

It's So Hard

When you can't see past what is

The negative thoughts repeat over and over

Pounding away at you in every direction

There is a way

Slowly

Think of one good thought

A thought of when you were smiling

Happy about someone or something

Think of that feeling that travels through your body

Faster than the speed of light

You can feel your body finally relax

It has been awhile

The tension leaving your neck and shoulders

Don't hurry or worry

Stay calm

It's o.k.

Think of one more good thought

A time when you were having fun with a friend

When you both had a good time

These are times you love

Life changing thoughts that bring you happiness

The events that happen in your life can be harsh

With understanding and care

We can find ways to feel better

Wonderful memories will lead the way to new exciting times

All you need to do is have a positive state of mind

Look around at more things you are grateful for

Make a list or a poster with the highlights of your life

These you will help you when you are feeling blue

Call a friend and spend some time together

Keep your mind looking for inspiration

You are on your way to enjoying life with the people that you love

Being sad and unhappy about any event will not change the outcome

It will only bring you down and make you and others miserable

It won't change the situation

When we feel good about ourselves and our life

Our future looks brighter and each day can be better

mary615 We all come across difficult times in our life. They are here for awhile but don't stick around forever. The sooner we see all the other good around us we will be on the road to recovery. Thank you for reading and enjoying. I believe life is meant to be good and we should do everything to get back to that feeling when we are unhappy. Have a great day.
