In the marathon life offers, there are always hurdles. The biggest challenge I faced was fighting cancer. During this time, I was also attending night school. As a result of my illness, I lost my job.
At first, it was not easy to overcome these challenges because I felt lost, and I wasn’t sure where to seek help. I often speak about the four ways in which I came through this difficult time, but for now, I want to focus on something related which is also important: self-care.
I say to motivate yourself by taking care of yourself first. Self-care, meditation, reading the bible, and finding a way to visualize a better future for yourself no matter how hard times become-those were key in my dark time. As a bonus, surround yourself with positive people because they will motivate you to continue achieving your goals, and they will want you to be at your best.
Even though life was difficult, I approached it as a test that I was going through, and I passed by not giving up. The worst thing you could do is take time off from your problems because they will never go away. I never take time off when I am going through difficulties because I do not sit around feeling bad for myself. Continuously working on our goals is one way to stay focused and gives us hope that better things are coming our way.
Make it a great day.
