We cannot go through life without experiencing difficult times. We are going to experience more than one difficulties times. Difficult times are always going to be there. They are part of our lives. We cannot do without them.

It is okay to experience difficult times. It is okay to find ourselves in a very deep hole. The question is, “Are we going to keep digging or are we going seek help?” How you answer this question will determine whether you will be able to cope with difficult times or not.

How we handle difficult times is what separate the poor from the rich. It is not what happens to you, it is how you deal with it that counts. It is not what you are going through that matters, it is what you do with what you are going through that matters. It is not where you are today that matters, it is where you are going and what you are learning from where you are that matters. It is not where you have been that counts, it is where you are going that counts. It is not what people have done to you that counts, it is whether you forgive yourself that counts.

When you are going through difficult times, do not worry yourself. Be positive. Be patient. Do not focus on what is going on in your life. Focus on what you are learning from what you are going through. Difficult times are here to teach you a lesson. Be ready to learn from difficult times. Open your heart to learn from them. If you learn from them, you will gain from them.

Barbara De Angelis said, “Difficult times always create opportunities for you to experience more love in your life.” You will see the opportunities in difficult times if you open your heart to them. Remember, a closed mind is a dead mind. If you want to learn from your situation, open your mind.

When you are going through difficult times, do not think about negative things. Think about positive things. It is when your mind is in a positive state that you can go through your difficult times without breaking your back. Always remain positive.

During difficult times, you need to be yourself. Love yourself. Accept yourself. Surround yourself with positive people. Do not be around negative people. They will suck up your energy. You need your positive energy to through your difficult times without breaking your back.

Remember that you can’t get to good times without first going through the bad times. That is what life is all about. Life is a mixture of everything- good times and sad times.

During difficult times, do not beat yourself up. It is not going to last forever. Difficult times are temporary, not permanent. If it is bad now does not mean that it is going to be bad forever. Nothing lasts forever.

What you are going through right now will not last forever. You will last forever. Amen!

Time Is Flying By

“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”– Charles Darwin

Time is life. If you love your life, you will love your time. You will know how to manage your time. YOU will not waste your time.

Time is flying by. The question is, what are you busy doing?

Are you busy growing yourself? Are you busy growing other people? Are you busy dwelling on the past? Are busy living in the future? What are you busy doing?

Time is important. Manage it well. You were created to manage your time. Don’t let your time manage you. Know what is important to you. Know what is not important to you. That is time management.

Stop making excuses. Making excuses will not lead you to your dreams. It prevents you from achieving your dreams. Don’t just go through life. Grow through life. Do not settle for less. Resent poverty. Don’t accept things that will move you away from your goals.

You are here to grow, not to waste your time. You are here to multiply, not to decline. Don’t waste your time. Take bold steps toward your dreams. If you don’t take it, no one will take it for you. Take it.

Spend your precious time with your loved ones. They love you. Be with them. Don’t spend your time with people who are putting you down. Spend your time with people who value you, who loved you, who are praying for you to succeed, who are ready to lift you up when you are down.

Your time on earth is limited, whether you want to hear it or not. You don’t have hundred years to get things done. You don’t have eternity to change your life. You don’t have eternity to forgive those who have wronged you. Spend your time wisely.

Spend time with yourself. We don’t do this anymore. We are there for people, but they are not there for us when we need them. We are always busy, always working, always on the phone, always angry, always worrying, always focusing on our mistakes, always trying to fit in. These things are good, but wrong. They are good because some of them are the right things to do. Others are just wrong. Just wrong!

No matter what, always find time to connect with yourself. If you don’t have time to connect with yourself, when will you do it? When?

The more you connect with yourself, the more you will know yourself. The more you will know what you want and need. The better for you.

Find time to relax, to read, to love, to think, to build positive friendships, to clean up your brain. Time is flying by. Find time to enjoy your life. Now. One great thinker said, “Everything has been figured out, except how to live.”
