For many, the start of the year hasn’t been so easy. So many sad things have been happening in the world. We’ve lost some beautiful people, there have been disasters, tragedies and more. Even in my own life, I’ve received some unexpected sad news and have been through challenges, which I’m going to keep private for now.
I wish we could just rewind these last few weeks and start all over again, and perhaps make a better start.
But, looking at all these examples, I also believe, it’s important to ask ourselves: ‘What can we learn from these sad and challenging experiences…and, actually…is there anything to learn from them?’
Well, all of them are definitely teaching us something….
They are perhaps teaching us to be stronger, more resilient and to finally start living our lives fully, instead of only existing. They may be teaching us to be more grateful, loving and compassionate towards others, and of course, towards ourselves too. Perhaps, they are teaching us to start enjoying our lives a bit more and stop investing our precious energy to things that don’t really matter. They are maybe trying to tell us, to be more ourselves and stop trying too hard to play the pretentious game of being somebody we are not to impress those who don’t really care anyway. They are maybe teaching us to be more forthcoming, more honest and tell our loved ones, as often as we possibly can, how much we love them and appreciate them before it’s too late. Or maybe, they are just telling us to be less fearful and more courageous, to finally step out of our comfort zone and start doing what we truly desire.
So, if this year began with some challenges for you, please keep the faith that things will get better. Trust and know in your heart, that after every storm the clouds will disappear and the sun will shine again.
