WHEN LIFE SEEMS TO BE DIFFICULT

Have you been going through a bit of an upheaval in life lately? I certainly have and I always find that there is wisdom out there just waiting to be tapped into if you know where to look.

Recently I found some fantastic advice from Mandy Hale's book "You are Enough, Heatbreak, Healing and Becoming Whole" and I wanted to share some quotes that I found particularly helpful.

WE CAN RISE ABOVE THE TOUGH TIMES

Last year my Word for 2018 was "Rise" because I wanted to focus on rising above the hurt and upsets of the previous year. What I've come to see is that life is full of good times and bad times - hurt and discouragement can befall us at any stage and we can let it beat us, or we can choose to learn from it and rise up stronger. The more we choose to respond positively, to look for the lessons, and come out on top, the more we appreciate the fact that we are Enough - in fact, we are more than Enough.

So, here are five fantastic Mandy Hale quotes that I found to be so encouraging in this season I'm currently in. I hope you enjoy them too - feel free to Pin them or to save them for when you need a reminder that you are Enough.

1.
And I would find myself again. Not the same version of me that I was looking for, but a stronger version. A wiser version. Mandy Hale #quote


2.
Sometimes it takes getting pushed to the very edge before you can find your voice and courage to speak out again. Mandy Hale #quote


3.
But in the midst of all that uncertainty and lack of clarity, there lies a wild beauty. A hope. Possibility.  Mandy Hale #quote


4. 
Sometimes it takes being left seemingly with nothing to realize that you are everything. Mandy Hale #quote


5.
I’m finally learning to accept myself as I am. Learning to like myself as I am. Learning to like and accept my life as it is. Mandy Hale #quote

  5. You can't be a good quote Leanne especially when you need some inspiration, motivation or just as a reminder. I like the last one the best 'learning to accept myself as I am'. It must be a week for quotes as I have a post for #ZTT about 5 Quotes that Inspire Change. Have a great week xx

    1. Thanks Denyse - and yes it is empowering to make choices based soley on what's best for me (and my husband of course) rather than purely on what I "should" be doing - as most of my previous decisions have been!

  9. Great quotes! I can really relate to #2 - years ago I was married to someone addicted to alcohol and gambling. It took getting pushed to the edge before I realized it was time to rise out of it for me and my kids! Thanks for sharing with us at The Blogger's Pit Stop!
