Find your bridges over troubled waters, as the old song goes
A lot of changes are happening in the world. Big changes are happening, and a lot of them are unwelcome. More and more you hear about difficult challenges faced by more and more people and countries.
But how do you rise above it all? We have to stay strong in the face of adversity and it’s very important that we keep doing so.
Here are my suggestions on finding pockets of positive energy:
- Find good things to think about
- Help others
- Be kind
- Plant flowers
- Think of happy times
- Be full of love
- Hug the ones you care about
- Think of accomplishments
- Find the strengths of others
- Be grateful
- Show compassion
- See the beauty in nature
It is great to have ideas about getting strength but what happens when those strategies don’t work. Well, you may need professional help and to find the courage to rely on others who can provide specific guidance for your issues.
We have to stay strong for each other. We have power in numbers and our kindness can multiply if we let it. Our hopes can grow stronger if they are encouraged. And our kindness can help more than we believe.
How can we help each other?
- Offer help when others need it
- Offer help before others need it
- Find ways to do more than you fair share of work at home
- Reach out to loved ones
These are just a few suggestions. Remember, the world and all of us in it are going to face some hard times, but we know we are strong enough to survive and achieve great things. We cannot forget the fact that we are in this together.
