Words are extremely powerful. During moments of uncertainty a word can be the seed for future change, or an anchor that helps us find stability while the storm rages on.
The following four words will inspire you during trying times. Use them to write notes you can put in prominent places, so you never lose sight of the values and ideas you hold dear.
As we struggle against uncertainty, we all reach a point of exhaustion when we feel spent or empty. However, a crisis often calls forth our best qualities, too. Heed that call, and as you traverse arid landscapes you will realize that you carry within you untapped reservoirs of strength.
Suggested note: “You are stronger than you think.”
Love can change everything and everyone. A loving gesture can shift our state of mind, no matter how daunting the situation. Think of all the love you have been granted and express your gratefulness for it. Spread awareness of love: Know that you are loved, and make sure that others know that you love them as well.
Suggested note: “You are loved” (dedicated to yourself or someone you love).
Change is the only permanent rule in our world. Even mountains and continents are in imperceptible motion. All things are transitory, including those that worry you the most. While you face a challenging situation, keep in mind the impermanence of reality. This struggle won’t last forever, and keeping the end in mind will make it easier for you to persist and press on.
Suggested note: “This too shall pass.”
There is deep wisdom in lightness and joy. Reasons to smile abound; all you have to do is find the strength to stop worry in its tracks for a minute. We are at our strongest and brightest when we smile. Be a gentle warrior: Find reasons to smile and remind yourself and those around you that everything will be alright.
Suggested note: “Smile!”
