One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.

It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.

A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.

   Everyone goes through periods where, no matter how hard they try, nothing seems to be going right. You feel helpless, hopeless and blue. That's just how life is, with it's ups and downs.  While a good cry can be cathartic, when you're done, here are a few things you can do to feel better.


                                                                          Get outside!

There's always someone else who's hurting worse than you. In my experience, the best way to forget about my own troubles is to help out someone else. There must be a million different ways that you could volunteer and make a real difference in someone else's life.

                                                                    Journal about it!

                                                                      Watch your diet

Comfort foods are a wonderful thing, but did you know that a healthy diet aids in fighting depression?  Over indulging in food and drink can leave you feeling worse than before!

                                                                              Have a little faith

Praying, meditating, studying God's word are all good ideas all the time, but I find especially comforting when things aren't going well.  It's good to know that, after all, God has got this and it's all going to be o.k.
