My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about!

I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of uncertainty and things not going in our favour. It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control. While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don't go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that this too shall pass.

2)Trust the process- Things always have a way of working out and sometimes almost magically and even better than our imagination

3)Your best self already has the things that you are dreaming about- I heard a phrase that the things that you seek are already seeking you. It is a beautiful reminder that if we work hard enough and single-mindedly focus on what we want to achieve, everything we want aligns with us

4)Gratitude is a muscle that strengthens with exercise over time- The reminder of being fortunate enough to wake up every day and being able to live a comfortable life is the key to having everything you desire. While it is important to feel all the negative emotions thoroughly and not embrace toxic positivity, the presence of gratitude makes the day a little easier.

5)Comparison is the thief of joy, detach and focus on yourself- You are not in competition with anybody but yourself, you do not need to prove yourself to anyone but yourself, the more you are in tune with what you want out of life, the less you focus on what others are doing.

You owe nothing to others but you owe the consistency, discipline and focus to yourself to become the best you have ever been.
