We used to have a saying when I ran club track, “You Must Believe!” It was our motto, our mission. To me it meant no matter the situation you must believe that you can conquer whatever you encounter on the track and in life. It was such a blessing to grow up in such a positive environment as a child. My parents were at everyone one my track meets, birthdays, etc. As an adult I am glad that I can take those lessons with me and pass them to my children.
Overcoming the negatives of life aren’t always easy. I have to admit I don’t always know how to deal with them either, but with ever trial I am learning, growing, and becoming better for it. I have learned so much about conquering negative situations, and of course I have some tips to share with you.
1. Don’t Dwell.
This one has been really hard for me. Try to let go. Negativity in your life only brings added stress and frustration. You end up feeling worst in the end, and it could even affect your health.
2. Pick Your Battles.
You have heard the saying, “Don’t take my kindness for weakness.” It is true. Sometimes you have to get your point across without being rude. Learn to say no when you need to, and don’t hesitate to speak up when necessary.
3. Keep Your Peace and Joy.
This one is harder than you think. Little things can throw off the best of moods, but let the joy of the Lord be your strength. With God all things are possible. He can turn any negative into a positive.
So there you have it. Three tips to “Tackle Your Tuesday” and get rid the negativity in your life and in mine.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
