Choosing To Rise

Life is going to knock us down, that is no secret, but what's more important is choosing to get back up. There are times when things pile up and we can't seem to find our way out, but pushing forward will always be more rewarding in the end as compared to giving up. We often decide to give in because it seems like the easiest thing to do, however in doing so we limit our abilities.

The only way we end up losing in life is by not taking the opportunity to rise after we fall. Now, this is not to say that everything will then happen as we want. It won't. Doing the same thing repeatedly in the same way will always create identical results. Yet, it should be used as a chance to learn. 

When we try and don't succeed it is not failure. Actually if we take the time to look back on what didn't go our way we end up learning more about who we are. It can help us to realize how we need to attack life the before us and all the curve balls we encounter. It can help us see how truly strong we are. 

The hardships we go through actually have the power to do more then just help ourselves. Have you ever thought about that? Have you ever thought about how your negative can help someone else have a positive? Because it can and you can. Hands down one of the most amazing moments there is, is helping someone else with a difficult time. 

We should not determine who we are and what our life means based on the times that haven't gone our way. Instead, we should look to how we need to pick up the pieces and put them back together. Overcoming is not easy, but trust me, it is worth the effort. Our struggles develop our strengths. 

I can promise you life is going to be filled with twists and turns.. 
Some we understand and some we never will..
And the hardest decision we have is deciding if we get back up.. 

Will you?

  1. Thanks for this encouraging post!

  2. A lovely positive post, which has really touched a chord with me. I also battle with health issues and it is so easy to just let it beat me, but I can't and won't let it. I particularly like the quote 'sometimes you win, sometimes you learn'
    Thanks for sharing this :)
