Reflecting over my life, it's been like a roller coaster. Sometimes, unexpected events changed my plans or the timing wasn’t right. Circumstances happen to delay my goals or dreams that lead me on a different path. We have two choices in life, allow the unexpected or negative experiences of life be a setback, or turn them into blessings. My perception changed when I begin to turn negative experiences in to learning opportunities. I’ve learned to push, what could be considered an obstacle can turn out to be a blessing.
P – Purpose: Purpose is the conviction that what you are doing matters because it’s connects you to the wellbeing of others. When you discover your purpose, you realize the true meaning of living. When walking in your purpose, you feel most alive and passion when you doing what comes naturally to you.
U – Unlimited Potential: Potential is the existing possibility: capable to development into actuality. When you have growth mindset the effort you put into something, whether it’s practicing or learning, you become better. So, what’s important to know, is that you can change and improve your skills, talents, intelligence and behaviors. There is no limit to what you can achieve.
S – Shift: Shift is to exchange for or replace by another. Shifting the conversation when your negative self-talk triggers fear or doubt can stop you from reaching your full potential. You can challenge negative talk with your favorite affirmation or song. Remember, your negative thoughts are not you.
H – Happiness: Happiness is an emotional state or a state of well-being that comes from within. Happiness is a choice. We can choose to be happy now in this present moment. Celebrate and enjoy the little things in life.
Don’t give up, instead push through. When you push through, your blessings are waiting patiently.
