“Life is like riding a bicycle – in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein

Everyone endures various degrees of hardship in life.  If you do not learn the skills of how to get up after falling down, you may find it almost impossible to move on each time there is a hurdle in your way.  There is a saying ‘what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’. So, if you are still breathing and standing, then you need to fight and get passed it.

It is almost impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you are at your lowest point.  However, hardships define our character and teach us very important life skills of patience, endurance and, surprisingly enough, kindness.

Sink or swim is life’s way of teaching us to move on. Sometimes we need to approach life as a business transaction to be able to move on.  Sit down and assess your life in its current state.   Ascertain what needs to be done to get from where you are to where you want to be.  Make a list of steps to be undertaken and people who can assist you in your journey. When making  your list, be realistic but learn to be resourceful. You would be pleasantly surprised at other’s willingness to help when you have a clear picture in mind.  A lot of people have experienced some form of hardship.  Therefore, they would understand what you are going through and would offer a helping hand.

Most importantly, learn to turn the page! If you keep looking at and living in the past, it is almost impossible to make a smooth transition into the future.  “When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” – Harriet Beecher Stowe

  1. Life can be a wild ride. So the old saying of ‘sit down, buckle up and hang on tight’ comes to my mind!
