Capable of Happiness: Enjoy the Journey

Everything happens for a reason. The good and the bad all come together to lead us to where we are meant to be, but sometimes we get stuck in the bad moments and don’t understand why good things can’t always come our way.

I am guilty of getting too caught up with why certain things don’t go as planned. I get upset and want to give up on my goals, but I am working on being patient and making lessons out of my mistakes.

We are all on a separate journey to achieve the best life possible for ourselves, but obstacles get in our way and cause us to lose the motivation and happiness we need to get there.

It can happen to anyone; your grades could be failing and it can cause you to question if this is worth it, or one bad game in whatever sport you play makes you feel like giving up. As scary as it seems, in order to get to where we want to be, we have to face these challenges instead of dwelling on them. In the end, the hardships we overcome make us stronger and make reaching our goals that much more glorious.

A new way to approach those obstacles is to embrace them and learn from them. Not everything is going to be easy to achieve, but when we take the time to teach ourselves how to approach our goals differently after a loss it helps to improve ourselves. No matter the set back, you need to keep your mind positive through your journey.

When one door closes, another door opens. It is okay to take a few steps back when hit with an obstacle, but it is never okay to give up without giving it your all.
