Yo, take a good long look at that picture. What do you get out of it?
Here’s my take.
Storms are a part of nature’s course here on Planet Earth, agreed?
I’m of the belief that storms are just as much a part of the cycle in the process of our spiritual and financial growth as they are in the weather. Can’t know real happiness until you’ve experienced sadness, no? I think we exist through contract, or polarity – a world of opposites and everything in between. You cannot know hot without knowing cold.
The next time you feel like you’re falling in to a rut or are having a bad day, I think it will help you out if you can tell yourself that it’s actually necessary to have those days, too. You can learn from them!
And just like the storms, the flood of negative emotions, self pity, and pessimism will all pass. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Milky Chance, a German folk duo, with influences of electronica and reggae, put it best in their latest album, “Sadnecessary.”
After watching an interview of the two of them and hearing them reflect back on it, it seems they, too, believe you can’t have happiness without temporary sadness. Hence, the title, sadness is equally as necessary!
Grant Cardone once said in one of his talk shows that he writes his goals down on three occasions..
Once in the morning. Once before he goes to sleep. And when he feels down.
What’s your remedy for dealing with the dips in the road? I think it’s important to have some sort of focal point to get your head on right again.
I meditate and visualize my best self, my ideal world, and what I want to happen to me. I try my best to make myself feel like I already have all those things I’m visualizing, like I’m literally living that life. Also I thank god for the smack in the face, it’s only making my stronger. Like we were talking about in my Life’s Struggles post, the harder the situation is, the bigger the return.
Don’t be discouraged when you have these moments, it is simply part of life. Prove to the universe itself how in control you really are, don’t let it sway you too far. Stay in control! Easier said than done, I know.
I know this was short, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Thanks for tuning in, everyone.
