When You Lose Everything

June 7, 2016

Losing everything in life is an awful experience. Whether it’s a loss of material goods, a job, your family or a loved one, it hurts a lot. The ups and downs of life are tough. We wake up one day and everything is fine, and the next day, we’ve lost all hope in our goals. Strength shows not only in the ability to persist, but in the ability to start over by analysing our attachment to things, and how we allow our circumstances to affect us. The fact is, as a human beings, we cannot live without loss. Everything in this world is temporary, and everything is possible when you don’t doubt your self worth and your abilities.

If you are reading this and you are going through a hard time, remember you are not alone, others have lost as much or more than you have. I promise you that it’s okay to lose, as long as you don’t lose your inner essence and your faith in yourself. Only when you lose your self belief there’s pretty much no effort to move forward with anything. As you stand there and examine what is left of your life, the things that you thought defined who you are, are now gone, you are left with a blank canvas. Take the opportunity to decide on what is worth missing, and what is worth regaining. The truth is that when you lose everything, you can allow this situation crush you, or remake you into someone stronger and with greater purpose. I personally been through 2 events in my life where I felt that I’ve lost everything, and when I learned this lesson, I became stronger and fearless, I changed my mindset and miracles happened. If you come to a place in your life where you feel like you’ve lost everything, maybe you’re right where God wants you to be. I discovered that bitterness will do you harm more than the circumstance you went through. Bitterness is far worse than any problem you’ll ever experience. No matter what you have, where you are, or who you’re with, your perception of your circumstances is more important than the circumstances themselves.

It’s never too late to reset your life. I am so grateful that I had the strength to do what I needed to do when I felt I’ve lost everything in my life, and my heart breaks for those who don’t know how to find their way out of their own misery when their world collapses. Maybe I can’t change others circumstances, but I can reassure them that I am a better person in every way today because I went through that pain. Success comes from failure, even when what’s left is only how much faith you choose to have in yourself. Reseting your life is an opportunity to determine whether or not your lifestyle is aligned with your personal values. If you are in pain, don’t suppress your feelings, take the time to grieve, rant and feel the emotions that you go through when you face a loss in your life; but don’t be trapped in grief and self flagellation. Simply accept what cannot be changed, because that’s the starting point to create a new life from the ashes. I never met a strong person with an easy past.

Take this painful change of course in your life, and make it count. You can survive this with grace and compassion towards yourself. I can assure you that no matter how great is your loss, you can still find things to be grateful for. Change your focus and be encouraged. Get out of your comfort zone and try to do something you’ve never done before. Take this moment as an opportunity to improve your relationship with others, and remember that the best way for you to feel happier about your life is to stop dwelling on the past and stop worrying about the future. Just live the present moment, keep in mind that whatever it is you’re going through, you’ll get through it. Attempt to embrace the power of positive thinking, and send positive intentions every single day, Then begin rebuilding your life, step by step. A lot of people have lost everything at some point in their lives, and that’s how they’ve discovered the incredible strength within themselves. That’s how they’ve learned to make better decisions, and developed their faith. All because they once lost everything. Giving up is not an option, so keep fighting because the moment you are ready to quit, is usually the moment right before the miracle happens.
