When things get bad it can be hard to know that you will make it through it. But when you think about it, you have survived 100% of all that has happened to you. Those are pretty good odds that you will make it through, this, too.
When we feel uncertain, we tend to forget how resilient we are. Instead of focusing on external things that we cannot control, we need to turn inwards and trust in our own abilities to overcome what life throughs at us, and not only survive, but thrive because of it.
You see, a bird sitting in a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking. She isn’t dependent on the branch for her survival. Her trust lies in her own wings, rather than the branch. At the end of the day, that is all she has.
It is human nature to try to fix or control external things. We think that by doing so, we will be able to change the situation. It gives us a false sense of security. But since we don’t have complete control over it, circumstances can change quickly and without any notice.
Don’t be at the mercy of these external things. Everything that is happening around you is very real, and it might be downright terrifying. But you determine what you have faith in. Do you have faith in yourself to be resourceful and overcome? Or does your faith lie in something that you cannot control?
