Things To Remember, When You’re Feeling Down…

‘This To Shall Pass’
This is a proverb from the medieval Levent (Persian, Hebrew and Turkey) around 1200AD.
Everything in life is temporary, whether you are going through good or bad times it won’t last.
As humans one of the biggest mistakes we make is dwelling to much on the bad times, which makes us feel
like they last longer.  Another thing we do sometimes as humans is when we are going through good times, we worry they won’t last
and the good feeling doesn’t last as long as it could.  Its true good times will not last either, which is why we should enjoy the feeling
whilst we have it.
‘Nothing Is As Bad As It Seems’
Said by Christopher pike, the full quote is ‘Nothing is as it seems. Black can appear white when
the light is blinding but white loses all luster at the faintest sign of darkness’
This again is very true, when we are going through difficult times in life, we dwell so much on the situation
we end up going down a dark path in our minds, and our thoughts start spiralling out of control.  We wish we could turn back time
and change the outcome of certain events.  Before we know it we’ve spent minutes, hours, days wishing we could change the outcome of events in our lives.
During these times we often let the good things in life pass us by unnoticed, because we are so focused on what has gone wrong,
we forget the many things that are going right in our life.
‘Good? Bad? Who Knows?’
I first heard this whilst listening to readings by Ajhan Brahm, and it gave me a whole different perception.
It allowed me to bring myself into the present moment, and to remember, we don’t know why certain things happen in life.
However if we allow things to be as they are, we allow for things to get better.  As humans we like to control.  When we try to control a situation
this normally comes from the fear of not knowing of what will happen, and worrying things may not turn out the way we want them to.
learning to let go allows us to welcome new things and beginning into our lives.
You Are AMAZING!!!!
The current world population whilst I am writing this article is 7,401,895,125.  In the time of writing these few words its gone up even more.
However, you are the only you!  You are unique, you are beautiful and you are amazing.  As Dr Seuss said, ‘Today you are you!
That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!’ Embrace yourself be kind to yourself, and remember there will never be another you.
This goes very well, in line with ‘Why fit in when you were born to stand out?’ another quote by Dr Seuss.
