When Life Disappoints

For the Write Tribe Festival - Rediscovering your blogging groove

Day 1 Write a List

About 3 months ago I started a Daily Thoughts series on my face book page Suzy's Ilation. When things aren't going well or some glitch appears in my life, I look back at the thoughts and find one that lifts me up or gives me that little impetus to go on, or helps me move on from a situation. So here is a list of those 10 thoughts that keep me going when life disappoints:

1. All things fall into place at the right time, in the right way



2. What is in your destiny, no one can steal
    What is not, you won't get though you pursue with zeal



3. Sometimes it's just not your day (let it go and move on)



4. Change your perspective



5. Accept that some things cannot be changed.



6. There are no right or wrong roads. All roads lead to your destiny



7. When life overwhelms, prioritise and focus on the things that matter



8. We reach our destination one step at a time



9. The first step is the hardest to take



10. Be patient. Life needs to unfold slowly.




Rather than add my notes and influence your thoughts, I thought I would let you ponder on these and interpret them in your own way. I know that at different times, they have meant different things to me.

Share some of your thoughts. What inspires you to keep going and how do you console yourself when things don't go to plan?

Inspire someone, be inspired, stay inspired.



Warm Regards

  1. Very inspiring thoughts, Suzy. When life disappoints, the one thought that gives me strength is "Everything works out in the end. if it hasn't worked out yet, then it's not the end." :)
