Life is Precious...

I’m sure by now we have all by now heard the sad news about Haiti and the devastating effects of the earthquake on the country...These are individuals who had very little to begin with and have lost so much more now... It is so sad.

My thoughts are with those involved and I hope and pray the Lord gives the survivors and the families of those no longer with us the strength to get through their difficult time and also the will power to keep them going during their difficult recovery process.

The current spotlight of this heartbreaking situation has made me realise something that we as individuals (including myself) seem to forget sometimes and that is...

It seems in life we all get so consumed with our own lives that we seem to forget that there is a world out there that is far more complex and hard to understand in comparison to our own “complicated” lives. (And I use that word loosely)

There are millions of people who go through things EVERY single day that we couldn’t even possibly imagine going through...Just makes you think...does it?!

Tragedies such as the Haiti earthquake and Hurricane Katrina should be a time for us to reflect and allow us to
REMEMBER the IMPORTANT things in lives. Our families/friends, our health etc. We should be grateful for what we have, I know sometimes this can be hard when everything seem to be going wrong in our lives and it all seems like it is getting too much for us to handle BUT we need to remember how much these individuals have lost and be happy and thankful for what we have!

We should count the blessings we have in our lives...

We also need to accept the fact that life is hard but it is how we deal with it that counts. When we overcome the hardships that occur we must always remember:

“That which does not kill me can only make me stronger.” – Tupac Amaru Shakur

By learning to take all the negativity that has and will continue to try to come into our lives we can generate something positive.
If we had to learn to crawl before we walked then it can’t be that much harder to change our approach to the problems that appear in our lives...Sounds pretty simple now...right?

As human beings we need to look at all the hardships that have EVER come our way and USE IT to help us move forward with our lives with a better frame of mind and spirit.

When things are hard we must remember the most important thing:


We should be grateful for everything we have as some many people don’t even have the small things we seem to take for granted.


There are always going to be obstacles that will make it difficult for us to cope after we have stumbled but with OUR inner strength and courage you CAN get through whatever life may throw at your way.

I’m not saying it is going to be an easy and simple process but if you believe in God (or any other higher power) turn to them to help you get through it.

In the following biblical extracts God shows how he is continually there for us.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you" (Isaiah 43:2)

Even when we think he is not.
“I will never leave or forsake you”
(Hebrews 13:5)

The sooner we start believing that everything happens for a reason the easier it is for us to start
EMBRACING the mistakes we make...We learn the most and grow from the choices (good or bad) that we make in our life!


I’m sure when you made that particular decision it seemed right at the time... “Welcome those big, sticky, complicated problems. In them are your most powerful opportunities.” – Ralph Marston

The quote below is my
FAVOURITE and I agree with it completely...

"I believe everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” - Marilyn Monroe

Put yourself in someone’s shoes and you will see just how LUCKY and PRECIOUS your life is!

Counting the blessings you been given in life because not everyone is so fortunate.

Some things that happen in our lives are just small things but are made far more complicated than they actually need to be...
YOUR LIFE is what you make it!

Con Amor,
