“Nothing in life is so hard that you can’t make it easier by the way you take it.” – Ellen Glasgow


We continue with the theme of positivity, that it’s our internal responses and our attitudes that help us overcome difficult situations.

The way in which we respond to a crisis will often tell us much about ourselves – if we’re listening, that is! If it really is a question of perspective, we should be better positioned than anyone to know what our perspective is and what needs to change in order to shift it.

History is replete with examples of triumph over adversity; Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Emily Pankhurst, Rosa Parks, the list goes on…..and the common thread through all of them was the way in which they took the hard situations that life threw at them.

There will be times in your life when it feels too hard to continue, that it’s easier to give up on something important to you – but the deeper you dig into your strength of character, resolve, determination and values, the easier it will be to rise up again and keep going. You will always find support too from others who either endure the same or empathise with you.

Sometimes you need to fight for what you believe in and that strength comes from inside you. Is there a hardship you are facing now? For example, how are you dealing with separation from friends and family? What challenges feel difficult today? 

How will you take them – lying down or bouncing back?

Love and light,

Jim Sharman
