The Changes of Life
My changed Photos
Fight for courage and accept your life
I, remember from my childhood years, and up until now, happiness has always been a big part of my life
Life was simple and most pleasant.
The changes in my life showed me many differences in my daily routine.
In my lifestyles, from everything to nothing of the same and from one life to another I did not know what to expect.
I grew up mentally in a new life, and culture and my experiences so far have been most interesting.
Life is about changes, and the many challenges one can be faced with, but when it comes to acceptance life can feel most difficult.
My life changed and everything else in my life went by unnoticed at times. There is nothing in my life that is like it once was, as in my past life. I have coped with great courage and confidence.
My personality shows the true me to everyone. Friendly, and always with a smile not to pretend to smile but to be noticed as the real me.
I prefer being direct and true in what I speak there is no need to lie about anything.
The truth says it all.
I like to be with friendly people those who share my interests and who can laugh at my jokes.
I have an English friend for the past ten years she has been my rock and helped me through my vulnerable times in Croatia.
I learned to be stronger and know how to face up to my hard times in this foreign land.
It has and can be tough in all ways and I could not have imagined what my life would have been like without her by my side at my worst of times.
She encouraged me through many bad times and I trusted her words then and now and with no regret.
When I did not know who to talk to. I spent a few hours daily in the local bookstore reading English written books. It was a great pleasure to read and be entertained with new books.
My focus was on what I knew best at that time thereafter, I made myself useful to the Croatian language.
The days went by with exploring new events in the area and in meeting new people.
I felt easier to cope with the my new life when I knew I could speak the foreign language.
I improved on my own and when the time was right I got into what I knew would change my life forever.
All in time and I saw how I changed in my photos of which told me I am doing well.
I knew I was doing well, I felt true happiness from within, and I had to get that happiness back inside of me. The one true aspect of my life nobody could give to me.
Acceptance is hard and as I found it an obstacle to be accepted by the local people, I also found it hard to accept them, the new culture and lifestyle.
The acceptance of life is what you get from life itself.
Without acceptance nothing can be successful.
Life can be most complicated if you don't handle certain situations with care. I found that my emotions got in my way of life.
It is normal but I did not look at that as normal. I looked at it as a problem not my experience. I was confused at how I should go about my normal life with a problem that I had resisted.
I did not think I would go through such feelings and experience moving to another country, and learning a new language. It had not occurred to me until I had to get into living the foreign life.
Look at it this way:
You look at others of how they are living and of how they think but you never think that one day that could be you.
Life is unpredictable that is what you don't understand.
Everything in life changes and yet you think it won't happen to you.
Nothing in life will stay the same it is all temporary.
What you think is permanent is only in the mind.
You need to focus on what happens to you with a positive mind and defeat what you know is negative.
Once you begin to cultivate acceptance you will find coping with major events easy. You will see life from a different side and instead of resisting you will show acceptance.
Your first thought in mind is accept the present and then everything else will fall in place. Your choice of thinking can make a difference and a change in your life.
I learned to accept after learning more about a new culture and to take each day as I experience it.
When you accept the happenings in your life you move on peacefully.
Challenges are part of you.
You do learn to give in at some time in your life.
Acceptance is the choice you make at any given time.
I accepted my new life through my positive thinking. If I constantly fought against acceptance, I would have been most unhappy with my stay in this beautiful country.
I do not want to be miserable and feel unhappiness, so I chose to accept my life and to get on with living.
It is like fighting against a tornado and not able to fix what is coming toward you.
Acceptance in life can be from relationships to other personal experiences your decisions made are very important as that affects the lives of other individuals and especially, you.
What acceptance can do for you?
When you accept your losses and gains, a new life or other challenges, you gain control of your life. You learn to keep the inner peace and yearning happiness.
The momentary happiness I felt when I first came to Croatia is now changed to my enduring happiness.
My life experiences have helped me move from the feeling of happy times to my true happiness. The kind of happiness, I truly felt before I came to live here from within.
You can use acceptance as a cover to protect yourself from the greater challenges ahead.
Experiences have allowed me accept and let go.
I found that my life changes affected my appearances but in a good way. I took care of me without neglecting and letting go of myself. Though some people can show neglect through tough times and good times.
I found my true self after I accepted my new life.
Most people would give up as I have seen many foreigners leave Croatia for the fact that paper work here takes forever to resolve. The long wait is just not for everyone.
I on the other hand, watched them come and go.
In the beginning, I felt like I did not fit in with the local group. As time went by I changed my thoughts on that note. I realized if I think hopelessly it will not be. I have to make the change and go forward.
I know for a fact that I have to make that change to see a difference in my life and nobody will do that for me. If I sat down and moped about it then I would have not grown to be this happy person.
I am not good at sitting down and feeling sorry for myself. I prefer getting up and doing something about my new challenges.
I think positive and do positive, in this way I feel happier and motivated.
My strengths kept me well, and my family supported me along the way. My very good friend advised me most of the way. She too is proud of my hard work in building up a new life.
That took a lot of obstacles to get by me. I am in a happy stage and I know my happiness is here to stay. Happiness makes everything in my life full and lighter.
Accept your Life to be Happy
Did you resist Acceptance?
