Life is hard and challenges are put in our path almost daily. It is those life events that occur over several days, months, or even years that can zap the crap out of us. I realize that it can be difficult to remain positive or refrain from “bitching” for lack of a better word about the circumstances of life that can bring us down. I have journeyed through the ups and downs of what has felt like huge ocean waves and have been brought to my knees on several occasions, and yes, I am guilty of a bitch or two or more. It can feel frustrating, hurtful, painful, and unfair when we are tossed into the sea of confused human emotion and circumstances.
What I will share is that “bitching” about it will not change a thing, and in fact, usually makes life feel worse as negative emotions try to take over our very being. This is when we tend to lash out, make poor choices, and even grab for those comfort foods that are supposed to fix everything when life feels bigger than us. Life does not come with an “easy” button, but our successes in life are achieved through how well we weather the storms that slap up us in the face and knock us on our butts.
It is one thing to be physically strong, but I will share that mental strength is what will carry us through life. Life is “10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it” so if we are bitching about the circumstances and wearing that “why me?” attitude, that eliminates all possibilities to learn and grow from the situation. “Why or poor” me creates a life of bitterness and resentment, and can scar deep and for many years. Looking at a situation and saying “I do not like this, BUT what can I learn from this to become a better person” will bless our lives in so many ways. We will never be able to see the end game and that is where faith comes into the picture. We can help with the outcome through our attitude however. If we “Ditch the Bitch” and take on a mental game of “I CAN get through this” no matter what, then you have won already.
This applies to all areas of life including getting healthy, weight loss, illness, overcoming injury, job loss, and broken relationships just to name a few. We are all here living a life that we think should happen for us, but we truly do not have control of so many things in this life. Realizing that we can only control our responses to the uncontrollable is what creates a better self, a healthier and stronger person overall. Keep in mind that when we are living this journey of life and reaching for goals, it is not in the bitching that the positive stuff happens. Time to “Ditch the Bitch” and Stay Healthy!
