Smile; you only get this moment once

Smile; you only get this moment once

Smile; you’ll never get this moment again’ morbid yes, but so true. 

Circumstances change in the blink of an eye, from how you’re feeling to the outside no-control zone. I call outside factors this because no one can control some things that happen in life, they just do. 

We can view it either as making us stronger people (which it will) or go into the whole ‘Woe is me’ routine.

The no-control zone is just like worrying. It makes no difference; it doesn’t stop the bad things from happening; they will come either way. It’s just a fact of life. Bad things come to teach us lessons. That’s all they do. Although it may not feel like it at the time. 

We can both learn and strive to go forwards or stand still. 

I especially know it’s hard if your heart’s invested in something or someone when you think you can’t live without them, but please look in the mirror and congratulate yourself that you’ve made it to today. Your heart is much stronger than you know. And every minute, you are changing; your cells are developing, it won’t be obvious but as plants grow day by day, to reveal a flower in the summer, you are getting stronger. 

Change we can’t see is happening right now. 

Nothing that you do will have a massive impact on the world. Like I always say, you can only change the world little by little. Life works in small ways – so everything you do will have consequences and affect the eventual outcome. So though things may not happen immediately and they may take their time, everything will work out how it was meant to. You’ve just got to believe that.
