It’s Hard

I’m not talking about a piece of granite, here.  I’m talking about living your life to the fullest.  Regardless, of your good fortune or not, life thrusts its challenges at us all and expects us to deal with them in the best way we can.  But, as I said in the title of this post, it’s hard.

So, the question becomes, how can you make it easier?  I don’t think you can ever make life easy…just easier.  But, it’s hard to do easy because easy is hard to do.  I mean, if it were easy, we’d all be doing it easily.  That’s hardly the case as we look around the world.  Living hard lives is seen everywhere and few are having it easy.

When easy is more in play, hope has a chance.  When you have hope, it’s easier to cope.  Here’s five easy steps to increase your hope in life.

    1. Count your blessings.  Everybody has some.  Bring those blessings forward into your consciousness.  Remind yourself of them on a daily basis.


    1. For everything negative or bad you hear about, find something equally or more positive.  The internet is an outstanding resource for this.  Here’s a link to just one community that can help in that regard.  There are thousands more, if it doesn’t meet your needs.


    1. Everyday, engage in a kind act toward at least one other human being with no expectation of a return on your investment of time and effort.


    1. On a daily basis, define exactly what steps you will take that day toward some positive thing you want to achieve.


  1. At the end of each day, look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself a positive affirmation on what you did today and what you’re going to do tomorrow.

Would those five steps be so hard?
