Tough time..

What do you do when you're having a really tough time? Do you just stay in your room and hoping that it will all end soon or you face it and do the best you can to be tougher and challenge what's ahead of you? I think it's better to be tougher. Problems come and go in our life but when we're facing face to face with problems, we must be able to face it. Found this article on Beliefnet. It's a 10-point list about inspiring thoughts for tough time. The list was created by Noah benShea. Noah is an American poet-philosopher and also a Pulitzer Prize nominee.

10 Inspiring Thoughts for Though Time.
  1. Broke Is not Broken - Being broke is not the same as being broken, losing money is not the same as being lost, and finding your balance is not something you can do on a balance sheet.
  2. Having Less Doesn’t Mean You Are Less - Don’t confuse having less with being less, having more with being more, or what you have with who you are.
  3. Savor Life and Slow Down - When you’re in a hurry, go slowly. The faster you go in life the sooner it is a blur
  4. Prayer Creates a New Path - Prayer creates a path where there is none and turns your stumbling blocks into building blocks.
  5. Courage Is not Absence of Fear - Put your faith, and not your fears, in charge. Courage isn’t the absence of fears but how you wrestle with them.
  6. Embrace the Future - If you’re busy hugging the past, you can’t embrace the future. Don’t let the past kidnap your future
  7. Change Is the Only Constant - This too shall pass. Change is the only constant. In order to take a breath, you must release your breath.
  8. Make a Difference - Do what you can, but never forget that letting go is very different from giving up. Of all the things you can make in life, remember you make all the difference in your life.
  9. Embrace Happiness - Tough times don’t require you to be tough on yourself. Find the courage to embrace happiness.
  10. You Are Great - Things don’t have to be good for you to be great.
