Life is a journey that contains both peaks and troughs and the experiences we are going through in life affect us and shape who we are. Life constantly develops us and you are a result of everything that has occurred in your life. Life is the best school that there is. However, I think it is strange that we human beings tend to focus on the negative happenings in life. It is said that you need 10 positive things to outweigh 1 negative thing which is sort of frightening. When negative things happen to us it is easy to forget the good things and we tend to end up in a negative spiral which can be difficult to exit. Sometimes, we are our worst enemy and our mind can destroy our self-confidence. When your self-confidence is low we tend to expect bad outcomes which often results in bad results which again lowers our self-confidence even more.
Your character is decided by your own ability to deal with the negativity coming your way. If you let yourself being dragged into the spiral of negative things then it is easy to get stuck there. I will say that life is about facing those negative things since that is the only way we grow as humans. Today, I must say that I appreciate the lessons life has given me because they have made me the one I am in this very moment. Dealing with struggles makes you more capable of facing the next one.
We also tend to worry about the future without knowing the outcome of it. Why should you worry about what will happen a month from now when you are even not 100% sure that you will be alive? This very moment is the only thing certain in life. The present is what matters so why not make a deal out of what you want to achieve today? Making plans and dream about what you want are great things that encourage us but if you are living in the future you will never be able to achieve it since there are some actions that you need to do today in order to get there.
Being alive is a risk. No one on this planet has ever survived life. Stop worrying and let tomorrow worry for itself. Your tomorrow is decided by your mindset today. You only live once and that is why it is crucial to appreciate what you are and have today in order to live your life to the fullest.
Johan and I have been dragging ourselves into a negative spiral lately. Life have so many worries and the future is uncertain which have sort of scared us. This has made us think about what will happen in the future instead of thinking of what we will achieve today. I must say that our worries have stopped us from experiencing life and enjoy the moment. We have realized this and therefor decided to let go of the worries and start gathering experiences that will bring positive vibes into our life which will apparently help us facing possible challenges that might occur in the future. A life full of positive experiences will create a positive mindset and help us to remember that life is great when a negative thing comes our way. I believe that this will help us face that challenge as well.
Life is too great to be missed!
Cheers from Johan & Roberta
