Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. I have been so busy these past two days and wasn’t able to get this out on Friday! But it’s here now and it’s something I really want to dwell on today. I have had a lot of curve balls thrown my way recently and it has caused my to rethink some things. I have chosen to reevaluate what my life is about, who I am, and what I want. Today I would like to share that with you and hopefully give you some inspiration for when life throws you these curve balls.

Sooner or later, life will throw you a curve ball. And it will suck. But that doesn’t mean your life is over. It doesn’t mean you lost. You may lose the battle, but the war is still yours to win. Some of the greatest things in life come after you have been defeated. Sometimes the most beautiful things God has to offer are just past some shattered parts of your life. But your life isn’t over. It’s just beginning.

It is in these times that you need to get perspective. Sometimes you may believe that what you are going through is the worst thing that has ever happened to you. But that isn’t necessarily true. It’s just a rough patch, but it will get better. You just have to allow yourself to focus and heal. The truth is, you can’t see the future. You don’t know what will come from this. You don’t know who you will be tomorrow, next week, or next year.

One thing I have learned is that when things happen, we have to practice acceptance. Maybe things don’t turn out the way we want them to. Maybe people are a little more aggressive that we thought. Maybe we aren’t doing as well as we thought we were. We have to accept that and learn and grow.

Try to be positive. It is difficult when these curve balls come because they don’t just come and go. Sometimes they linger. But we can’t focus on the negatives and what went wrong. We have to see what good can come from this. If nothing good can come from this, it’s time to let it go.

Most importantly, we have to learn to focus on what we can control. We can’t control what others do, or say, or think. We can only control ourselves. So if someone brings you down, get back up. Don’t let anyone have that kind of control over you or your life. You are worth more than that. Don’t let someone else’s negativity make you bitter. Focus on yourself and what you can control.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Comment below what your thoughts on what to do when life throws you a curve ball and how you handle it. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
