Life is Still Good

Image having everything you ever wanted.  Let’s say that what you had was a big house, a spouse with kids, nice cars, perfect health, and friends and family that cared about you.  You would have probably said to yourself, “Life is good.  I am living the good life and things can only get better.”

However, things do not get better for you.  Your health has taken the turn for the worse, you are behind on your bills and the collectors are threatening to take the things you worked so hard for away, and the person you thought loved you and would always be with you is now leaving you.  Now, you think that life is not so good after all.

I am here to tell you that life is still good, and just because we have some setbacks, it does not mean that it’s not.  In fact, that is a part of life.  We have our high points, and we have our low points.  The reason that you have to know that life is still good is because you don’t want the way you think about a negative situation cause you to make it worse.

What I mean is that we can easily think that things don’t matter anymore because of the bad things that happen to us.  We could become alcoholics, drug addicts, and lash out at the people around us because of our situation.  Those actions can make the bad situations we are already going through even worse, and we must not let that happen.

For every sunny day, there’s a rainy day.  And after the rain is gone, we get the sunny days again.  So, we have to be patient while we are going through the bad times and know in our hearts that things will get better.  You do not want to end your life badly knowing that you had the power to make things better.  It all results in how we think.  So, just know that whatever you are going through, know that live is still good.
