Some of us want to live life under the tacit assumption that everything’s will be in good form as long as we close our eyes during the challenging time. So in the same way, we use the same kind of thoughts to try and make sense of the world. However, we must bear in mind that change is a constant in life, and without change, there is no life. Although we must be grateful for everything in our lives - as life is like a roller coaster ride, it has its ups and downs...but it's our choice to either yell and scream or enjoys the ride. To put into respective, life is full of ups, and down, we must enjoy the ups and have courage during the downs.

Life is not perfect. It is similar to a road, it has several bends, ups and down, but that's been the realization of it. Although we must wake up and see life as it is to understand the details, and we must know that sometimes the inevitable that happens unexpectedly will stand in the ashes of our plans. The unavoidable will fill us with suffering, and no matter how wise, we are to grow through life’s inevitable, we will never be immune to life’s most significant challenges and losses. Moreover, life has an interesting way of being; it demands every ounce of courage and strength we have, and then some.

Each day can be the beginning of a new start. As we live our life, most of us recognize that change in life is unavoidable, therefore we will have productive days as well as regretful days. However, through life’s challenges, I learned to make my good days outweigh the bad days. There are two ways we can live: we can live emotionally and physically drained, or we can live the way God intends for us to live in peace even when a storm is around us, as though every day is our last.

Everybody cannot have the pleasure of living the second choice because he or she does not know how to allow God to bring them to peace even when the storm surrounds them. I did not reach this decision overnight, but I learned that when life’s challenges get hard, live through it and learn to transition and grow through it. I recommend that we remind ourselves, each morning - nothing can stop the person who desires to succeed. Begin each day by looking at each obstacle as if it is a development of the achievement muscle. Remember; life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that we learn how to accept life’s challenges. Take a deep breath and allow life’s many challenges to bring out the best in you.

Think about it - No matter what happens in our life, how many different challenges come our way, we get to choose whether to achieve and reach our goal or give in and be defeated. Bear in mind; you are going to get tired, exhausted and drained. Often life will slap us in the face. I am the first to acknowledge that when life gets hard, we can live through it, and learn to transition and grow through it.

Transitions into your growth can be planned, good or bad, but we must embrace the emotion that change can bring. Nonetheless, transitions are a process by which people move off from an old life and take part into a new life. Sometimes we carry ideas of how we want to live our new life until something comes along and redefines how we live our life. Sometimes it redefines life so much that it makes it appear as though living life is utterly hopeless. However, you know what just because something seems to be broken doesn’t mean that it cannot be mended.

Finding Strength During Life's Inevitable Ups and Downs

During challenging times, how do we find strength and cope with life’s setbacks? Perhaps we need to wash our eyes with tears once in a while so that we can view life in a more precise way again. As it is not easy to come to terms with the fact that sometimes, life is full of surprises, But, we have to find the strength to deal with life’s ups and downs with great humility. To deal with life ups and downs, instead of looking at external circumstances and blame them for unfortunate life events, we must soul search to determine if there are past wounds that still require healing, people that we haven't forgiven and stuff we are clinging on to that we need to let go of.

Whether we like it or not, it is the real-life circumstances that have a way of bringing all of us to our knees. Also, we must come to the reality that we are at the mercy of situations that are so much bigger than our ability to figure out all at once.

The inevitable times have a way of making us feel powerless, and as if we should surrender to the unavoidable, it even leaves us asking, “How could this have happened?” Keep in mind, feeling powerless and wanting to surrender to the inevitable is different from lying down and allowing yourself to be defeated. In fact, acknowledging how you feel and moving toward to a place of real optimism will enable you not to be beaten but will give you time to seem helpless, sad, angry, scared or overwhelmed. Disappointment is inevitable; it is how you deal with it that allows you to find the strength to deal with the hard to avoid times.

Take the time to make sure you repair what broken by gathering scattered bits of life’s pieces and placing them together into the correct fit. This will resolve and rebuild the will to keep moving forward. However, know the pain you feel today will be the strength that will help you find future growth. We do not grow when things are easy and effortless because it is so easy to live when we feel as though the world is our oyster. When we grow is when we are being challenged—sometimes beyond what we think we are capable of handling. From that growth, I learned that when life’s challenges get hard, live through it, learn to transition and grow through it.

Don’t allow life and its challenges to choose a negative future for you. Hold on to your vision and focus on bringing it to reality. Keep the faith because God will never leave you nor forsake you. When you are a child of the highest God, He protects you. Ask for strength, and He will give it to you. Even when someone you trust and love lets you down, it is not the end of the world, and sometimes it is best this way. I know it might sound false, in particular for those who do not understand that God knows what is best for us and that He removes from our life the baggage that holds us down.

In spite of this, even in the midst of confusion, pain or suffering, God already knows who would leave you, so don’t try to hold on to that someone, it is better this way. Sometimes you may find yourself wondering ‘How can this be God?’ or you may even find yourself saying, ‘There no way I can continue.' However, Mark my words when I say God is working for your good and when life gets hard, live through it, learn to transition and grow through it.

Do you agree with the phrase "Don’t just go through life’s transitions. Grow through it".
