Spiritual Growth.................

*wanders in and sits down... thinking*

Challenges and difficulties are a part of life and words of encouragement can often help you and others get out of life's ruts. It’s easy to tell someone to hang in there and to keep a positive outlook when they are going through tough times but when it happens to you, keeping your chin up isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Even so, it’s not impossible my friends.

There are a lot of things we all can do to help us stand back up and move forward. Whether you’ve been dealt with a setback while working towards your goal, lost a loved one, or just feel down, inspirational words of encouragement can help.

There are a couple of things that spring to mind when I face these moments :-

1) Sometimes, it helps to take a step back and look at the grand scheme of things. Perhaps then you’ll realize just how silly it would be to spend another minute worrying and stressing about things you won’t even care about or remember a year from now.

2) Life can be tough and even unfair at times. I don’t really have an answer as to why certain things happen but I do know that these are usually the moments in life where the potential for spiritual growth is at its greatest. Diamonds are created under intense pressure. Muscles are built by overcoming tremendous resistance. You could either let these moments in life break you or use them to become a mentally stronger person.

So there you have my thoughts on this amazing sunny and warm English morning my lovelies, remember you are all never alone, there is always someone, somewhere thinking and smiling just because you are a part of their world.
