“When The Pain Leaves, Space Remains”

“We grow through hard times. Growth is change. And when everything is easy, we have no chance to change. The most painful moments in life expand us. And when the pain leaves, space remains. Space we can fill with life itself.”- Matt Haig

No one likes hard times. But that is where growth is. That is where growth really happens. Look, you can’t growth without change. If you want to grow, you must make friend with change.

If you do not like change, it means you do not like life. Because life is change. And change is life. Without change, there can be no growth. Without change, everything will remain old.

When you face something bigger than yourself, do not ignore it. It is going to expand you. It is going to make you bigger. It is going to bring out the best in you.

So whatever you are going through right now, you can defeat it. You can face it.

“And when the pain leaves, space remains.” When the pain leaves, love yourself even more. When the pain leaves, take care of your self even more. When you are no longer dealing with the pain, enjoy your life even more.

Why is that? Because you are bigger than pain. You are better than what is going after you. You are bigger than what you are going through in your life. You are smarter than you think. Whatever you are dealing with, it is not the end of your life. It is just the beginning of a new chapter. Are you ready to read it?

Stop Wallowing In Despair

Life is bigger than wallowing in despair. To achieve success, to advance yourself, wallowing in despair won’t do it for you.

If you have been do it, it is time to stop. In her book Didn’t See That Coming: Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart, Rachel Hollis writes, “It’s time. If you want to begin to move forward, then you must stop wallowing in despair and take the next right step to help you move forward.” Do all that you can to move yourself forward.

If you can’t do it now, do it later. You move your life forward or backward by what you do. If you do the right things, you move your life forward. But if you do the wrong things, things that are against you, that are against your soul, you move your life backward. Theron Q. Dumont once said, “By what you do, you either advance or degenerate.” The question is, what are you doing right now to advance yourself?
