Sometimes life can seem like an avalanche. You just get through one difficulty, only to be knocked down by another. In times like this I find it is important to remember three things:
- This day will pass.
Time is a continuum, not a solitary event. So with time comes the possibility for change, for better days, for a different outcome, for things to be resolved.
- It is not always about you.
Sometimes it is all about another person’s stuff and therefore, it is important to recognise that and not take on board the emotional baggage of the other person.
- You always have choices and you have power over your reactions and your actions.
Whilst you cannot choose the way another human being will behave, you can choose how you respond. You can choose to be proactive. You can choose to not engage with something that is negative. You can choose to walk to the beat of a different drum.
Whatever the challenge, just remember that you are enough. You have enough wisdom, enough resources, enough strength to face it and you have the support of the #FatGirlsCanDance family. Connect into the group. Draw strength from the women who want to see you flourish in life. Together we are stronger and more powerful because as one wise man said, “The whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts.”
