Challenge Myself: Day #6 Hope When Disaster Hits

Today is Day #6 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into the Challenge. Today is about Cultivating Hope When Disaster Hits. The book says,

"If something isn't going well in your life-your child becomes ill, a car broadsides your vehicle in a parking lot, you overdraw your bank account or the taxi you are riding in on the way to your most important meeting of your life gets ensnarled in traffic- have hope that circumstances will shift and the situation will improve or be resolved.

Find the courage to work to change what isn't good right now. Rather than allowing stress, anxiety to fill you with worry and stress, try to feel hopeful. It will be better for you emotionally and physically."

What a good lesson this is on Hope. Never give up. Try to feel hopeful even when everything around us feels like it is crashing down upon us. Remember: Hope is what keeps us going even in our darkest hours. Our hope is what motivates us to keep going- to keep trying. Never give up on Hope no matter how hard the situation is right now.

Just for Today: When things feel Hopeless I will realize that out of difficulties grow miracles.
