Tough Times Don't Last

Sometimes, obstacles will want to destroy you and expose you to the real you. Don't let them drown you, but should be a ladder that will propel you higher. Drawbacks might tempt you to stop and give up on whatever that you're doing. Do not give up; just keep moving. If you keep going, soon your difficulties will vanish, and the sun will shine upon your face again and be glorious.

Sometimes you may be going through hell despite the fact that you're doing the best you can. I may not know the level of the dilemmas you may be battling with presently, but I will just advise you to gird up and walk through the storm. You must work your butt up and never let the trauma paralyze you.

Do not be distracted by what you're going through; focus on where you're going. Discover the purpose of the challenges you're going through in life; it is only then you will be able to focus on what you can do. Almost everything in life has limits, but only God's love has no limits. Appreciate those you can while still alive and breathing coz heaven doesn't have visiting hours.

Pestering or lingering around those that don't see you as a priority in their life is nothing but a wasted effort. It's a capital and resources risking situation, just like supplying huge quantities of a product to a market with no huge demand. Look at yourself as a color, you may not be everybody's precious color, but one day you will meet someone who needs you to make their story delightful and unique. 

In Oprah Winfrey's words, "challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new way to stand." Choose to laugh, and laugh out loud if you dare; always remember that every day presents another opportunity. And despite it all, you are still among the living. It is a popular saying that "Tough times don't last, but tough people do." This is true because many times, this too shall pass, and you would move on.
