Meaningful Monday-Life’s Ups and Downs

“Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery – there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair.”  ~ Rick Warren

Every day, I try to focus on the good, writing my thoughts on paper, adjusting my  bucket list as I find know adventures.  Focusing on the blessings, my abilities to face life’s challenges head-on and staying in the moment instead of focusing on the mountains and valleys always springing up in my life.

Some days you’re up. Everything is going fine you’re in tune with the universe, life is flowing, and everything makes sense. The other days it’s like you’ve been down. You might be an emotional wreck because you’re tired, overworked or got bad news. Ups, downs, as well as the twist and turns in life, are inevitable. They not always welcomed and most definitely never appreciated but there’s no avoiding them.

Giving up is conceding that things will never get better, and that is just not true. Ups and downs are a constant in life, and I’ve been belted into that roller coaster a thousand times. ~Aimee Mullins

How you adjust and adapt to these unplanned and often unwanted divergence is as crucial successful living. If fear or frustration sets in, you will experience more of the same but if you accept life’s twist, turns, detours and even disasters, they can make you stronger, adding a sense of richness to your life. There is much wisdom in recognising and accepting all of the uncertainties in life and understand your actions and experiences -moments of joys and sadness, pride and shame create the outer layers and inner texture of our spirit.

    Good morning Etta 🙂

    Nice reminder that we all go through good and bad times… Which is not always easy to process, but without ups and downs, life would just be a flat line 🙂
