30 Days of Re-centering Your Mind And Rejuvenating Your Heart
Day 1- Recognize The Blessing
It’s no secret that life can be immensely difficult. If you are reading this article now, chances are you are feeling this way. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. By reaching out for help, you are already winning half the battle. Even through the darkest of times there is still something to be grateful for. It is all in our attitude. You suffered accident and you are left disabled. You can complain about the things you can’t do anymore or be grateful for staying alive and focus on what you can.
Day 2- You Are Not Alone
You have to recognize that you are not alone in your struggle. We all face adversity. Adversity rears its ugly head in many shapes and forms, yet is a common factor in all of our lives. We fight not to shun or ignore adversity, but to gain the strength to face it. It is good to remember that you are not the only person that experiences pain. It can often feel that way. During the thick of the storm, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that most of the people you know are facing difficult trials of their own.
Day 3- Discover The Path
Sometimes you’re better off having one clear vision for your future, than ten standard goals. Everybody has goals. Some come to fruition, some don’t. But if you have a clear vision for your future, you’ve equipped yourself with a valuable tool. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, finish school, or embark on the journey of a new career, a vision is your friend. Now remember, no vision is complete without execution. Take action today, to ensure that you are where you want to be tomorrow. Delaying and procrastinating will simply keep you off the path rather than push you along it. You want to be walking hand-in-hand with your vision, rather than watching it from a distance. Be flexible and allow your vision to alter, but never lose sight of it. Be ready to adjust and change the road but never a goal.
