Something I have heard from many in the last month is how heartbroken they have been feeling since last fall. As a feeling I too have experienced while watching the world change every second, it’s no secret that a broken heart can take a toll on the best of us.
If there’s one thing we remember from the great Maya Angelou, it’s that if we don’t like something happening in our life, we need to change it. And if you can’t change it, you have to change the way you think about it. Whether it’s relationships, career or even maintaining social circles, taking initiative is essential if we want to succeed. When you show initiative, you do things without being told. You harness the strength of what you know and utilize it towards your advantage to keep things going when they get tough. Simply put, initiative is more action than reaction, and if you push yourself little by little each day, you can improve your circumstances.
With summer approaching on the sunny horizon and the calendar finally reaching the half-way point of what seemingly feels like a bit of a rough year, it’s amazing to see how fast time flies. I am completely shocked at how quickly 2016 has gone by. While it personally started a bit rough for me, it got relatively easier thanks to family and friends, work I can be proud of and a future I have faith in that will be waiting for me.

As the weeks grow milder and longer days arrive, we will start to see the beautiful blossoms of nature and the warmth of summer’s approach. The early days of spring give me such an incredible feeling of merriment and joy, especially on long and welcomed walks in the woods that reveal not just the beautiful signs of the season, but everything that is to follow in the next months—warmer weather, bright sunshine, and an array of colors to brighten our days.
It’s hard to believe anything worthwhile can come out of challenging times when you’re suffering the pangs of a moment while the abyss of darkness seems eternal, and through these hard times you clearly see not just what needs to be done, but the type of person you want to be. If you change the way you look at things in life, the things you look at will change.
