There is the famous saying in life that when it rains, it pours. And if you have ever experienced a rough patch in life, you know this saying to be true. Finding hope when life dumps rain over our heads can be challenging, but the good news it, it isn’t impossible. Below, I want to share some helpful tips on how to find hope during the rain. Finding hope when life storms on us is one of the best ways to see through the dilemma and come out clean on the other side. Here is how to get started.
1. Look at the rain as a challenge, not a roadblock.
When life dumps on you, don’t look at it as a huge boulder standing in your way. Instead, look at it as a challenge, or a puzzle even. Then, decide how you wish to solve this puzzle. By accepting the challenge, you can continue to move forward. From some of my BIGGEST trials emerged my biggest blessings. It is amazing how circumstances have a way of bringing us exactly to the place that we are supposed to be without us realizing it at the time.
2. Break down problems piece by piece.
Look at the storms life throws you as drizzles. When you look at problems as small pieces instead of a huge gush, you can find and feel more hope about the future. Break problems down into smaller pieces and knock one issue out a time. You will feel less overwhelmed and more hopeful this way.
3. Be around other hopeful, helpful people.
Don’t be around people who only continue to rain on you after your skies are clear. When you do this, you throw all of your hard work away. Instead, be around people who maintain a heart of hope and faith. They are the ones who will help you best weather the storm. As long as you have HOPE and keep reminding yourself that “this too shall pass” you will find that it is a little easier to endure the trial. Nothing lasts forever, just do your best to keep hopeful and positive through your trial and it makes it a whole lot easier to get through.
When you give these three tips your consideration, you can best prepare for the storms life throws at you. You can find the hope in the rain, and maybe, you might even see a rainbow!
Happy Monday, friends!
