For the month of April I will be participating in the A-Z Challenge. You can find out more about it here:
My theme this year is KEEP MOVING FORWARD
All of us, no matter who we are or where we come from will experience different levels of disappointment and loss at some point in our lives. Whether it is a rejection letter, we didn’t get chosen for a job we wanted, a relationship ended or a close loved one passed away it is painful. The ways in which we deal with our disappointments and losses can be as different as we all are. Each one of us feels some level of grief every single day of our lives. If we cannot find our car keys we become angry, we deny that the keys are lost or that we had anything to do with them being lost, we panic, we bargain with God or the universe or pray to dear Saint Anthony and finally we accept that we need to stop, clear our heads and accept that we misplaced our keys and we need to find them. When we lose a love one we have all of those same feelings of grief of course greatly compounded. Our lives are turned upside down and the world stops. Some of us find it difficult to move on. We struggle to return to ‘normal’ not realizing that we are forever changed and will never return to what was once ‘normal.’ We must find a way to move forward and adapt to a new ‘normal.’ For many of us that is easier said than done. We find ourselves needing a lot of help.
Starting with the letter A
Attitude is a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior. If we find ourselves stuck in grief, sadness, jealousy, anger or resentment in order to move forward, one thing that has to change is our attitude. The first step in changing a negative attitude is accepting a change is needed and understanding the change will affect your life in a positive way. Look for people in your life that seems to always have a positive attitude and ask them to explain to you how they were able to change. Once you begin the process of changing your attitude you will be able to take that first step, even if that step is as simple as putting your feet on the floor. It is a start. Keep Moving Forward!
I am excited to be a part of the wHooligans team this year!
