Take life as it comes

It is somewhat ironic how people in general react to the circumstances in their lives. Usually when we get the desired outcome you will often hear the phrase “you or I deserve it”. On the contrary, when negative situations happen we often ask: why me? Well, I do not know if anyone deserves or not both the positive and negative instances of their lives. However, there is something that I do know; it helps learning to take life as it comes.

Taking life as it comes does not mean that you should live without setting goals. It means that in negative circumstances you should maintain a positive state of mind. This can be achieve by keeping in mind that whatever comes your way you will be able to handle it. You may wonder how can I know beforehand if, I can handle negative situations? And to be frank, there is no way to know. However, it is up to you to comprehend that life itself is full of surprises both positive and negative ones. It does not matter how well you have planned or lived your life; you will still find yourself learning thru trial and error or suffering over circumstances that you have little control over.

Before you get discourage and start to wonder; then what is the point of taking charge of life if bad things are going to happen anyways? First, understand that this is the whole purpose of taking life as it comes. It’s accepting life issues without staying in a stuck state of mind. It is telling yourself, hey this has happened but, I can get thru it. If you accept this way of thinking you will feel more in control which will help you get rid of unnecessary over worrying. This way instead of interfering with your own judgment you will focus on a more important step of problem solving,” finding the solution”.

Nice thots...People who takes life as it comes are more happier than people who unnecessarily make things bigger...All of us are created to go through both positive and negative turns of life...Experiences teach lot of things than SUCCESS...It's easier said than done...But, to take life as it comes shows lot of maturity - Tats my thot :)
