When I face trials, I always look at what I have in my life, what I want in my future and what I can do to face these trials with everything I have. Sometimes I write messages to myself to remind me: always put everything you have into anything you do. This is something I wrote to myself in May. May it help at least one other person who might read.
Think of the past with nostalgia, look to the future with optimism and appreciate the present. There is always hope when there is despair. There is always strength out of pain. There is always courage where fear strikes. When the bad strikes, the good always fights back. Life can be a constant battle between the good and the bad. These battles are fought firstly within and then emulate around you. For the good to win the war, it starts with your mind. Always have hope. Always see life for both what it is and what it could be. You have the ability to change what could be into what is and what is to what was. Only you have this power in your own life. Master the power, master your mind and you will change your world.
