When Life Gets in the Way

I wish I could tell you that your self-love journey and life will always be a smooth and easy ride.

I wish I could tell you that there won’t be any obstacles, any challenges, any misfortunes and pain.

I wish I could tell you that life never gets in the way of your dreams, your hopes, your happiness and joy.

I wish…

Wait, no.

I don’t.

Because where would be the fun in that? Where would be the opportunity to grow, evolve and change?

Where would be the chance to build self-efficacy and self-trust?

Where would be the road to step into the real you?

While it’s true that you can surely grow tremendously in the good times of life, it’s also true that you grow quicker and maybe even more radical in the bad times, the times that hurt, cut like a knife, crush your dreams or simply limit your hopes.

Don’t get me wrong, bad times suck. Big time. But they’re going to happen; no matter what.

So, why not make the best out of them?

Why not change the way we look at these situations?

Why not turn the bad into something good?

When I lost my jobs because of the visa issues a few months ago, I felt awful. I freaked out about money, taking care of myself and being able to live in the US. However, within a few days, I was able to change the way I thought about this situation and turn this unfortunate situation into a milestone of personal growth.

I’ve used a simple exercise that helped me to transform my perspective and be happy again. 🙂

In today’s edition of Love Yourself Friday, I share a wonderful tool that’ll help you to do the same.

Reframing. Such a transformation tool to use in life and in your self-love journey.

Turning a wrong turn into an interesting one is awesome and it’s also quite fun.

Have you ever reframed a crappy situation? Have you been able to turn around a “fat”-day or a time you experienced low self-esteem? Tell us about it.
