I’ve Had Some Very Dark Days
3 Actions That WILL Get You Through Horrible Things
I’ve had some very dark days when I felt my life was totally falling apart. Things I thought could never happen, happened. I say this humbly, knowing others have had it much worse. There’s always a choice to get out of the darkness. Here’s three actions that got me through.
Action #1: Don’t Go It Alone
On some days, I called and texted friends and family dozens and dozens of times. I’ve attended hundreds and hundreds of support group meetings. I’ve made some of my closest friendships during the worst times. Get around people who care about you, especially when you feel like nobody does.
Action #2: Make Your Perspective Healthy
There’s ALWAYS HOPE. There’s always a reason to be grateful. I hated hearing those 2 statements from people, but they’re true. Some days, doing my daily 5 & 5 was nothing more than an act of the will. Willfully reflect on what’s good in your life and the opportunities ahead, especially when it feels like there are none.
Action #3: Be Your Own Best Friend
You’re no good to anyone if you don’t take good care of yourself. Identify tasks, activities, and things that fill you up and make them a part of your day. Engage these activities, especially when that’s the last thing you want to do.
Do you see how none of these actions are things you’ll want to do at the time? They will take INTENTIONALITY.
Here’s a great way you can take care of yourself. Something you can intentionally do for yourself. Come to a Decide Your Legacy Workshop.
