The trick to living a happier life is accepting that you're going to make mistakes and there will be setbacks. Preparing yourself for the "what if's" and possibilities of changes, challenges and failure could save you some heartache. There are times when things are going great in our lives and then out of nowhere, BOOM, you're hit with a situation or event that reroutes your entire plan! But wait, instead of looking at this moment as a negative thing, try to think positively.
What if life stopped you in your tracks to show you that there was a better way to go about something, or maybe it stopped you to slow you down to refocus on caring for yourself... Or just maybe there is a lesson to learn from the situation. Of course, we don't want to hear this in the moment, because there may be feelings of anger or sadness. Let yourself feel and process those emotions. But most importantly don't let yourself sit in those emotions for too long that they began to take over. Try to see what happened and look at it from different angles. I truly believe that "Everything happens for a reason" and "What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger"...
Remember to always feed positive things to your mind. Be kind and gentle with yourself through the process. Show yourself some compassion. The world is hard enough on us as it is!
