Believe

Filed in Courage, Inspirational, Life by on September 30, 2015

believe that the next chapter in your life is going to be better than the one before. Mercia Tapping

Sometimes when you are sitting in what may seem to be the shattered chards of life, with very little to look forward to, it may seem well nigh impossible to believe that the next chapter of your life is going to be a great and glorious one.

But it is very important to create that belief within ourselves, because our beliefs will drive our choices and actions. After all, does the fisherman go fishing if he believes there is no fish in the sea?

I am not saying that the path forward isn’t without obstacles,of course it will be. What I am saying is if you do not believe that your future holds great promise, you will sadly be very right.

Have a Purpose In Life

have a purpose in life. without purpose life has no meaning. Mercia Tapping

Purpose for your life. I have written and thought about the power of purpose in life for over thirty years.

When I used to lead workshops on this topic, I was fond of saying that I disliked vacuum cleaning, but in the context of good friends coming over to dinner, vacuuming now held a different meaning; I could sing to myself as I vacuumed merrily away.

So an overarching, umbrella like purpose in your life, is that context in which everything else lives and so gives our lives meaning.

To identify the purpose for your life requires a good deal of soul searching but you will know when you have found it when you get that silent ” ah ha” now everything makes sense.

You can start by reflecting on what has given you most joy and satisfaction in life to date and see if there is a common thread. Your purpose expresses who you are at your very core, it lifts you up from the doldrums, has you keep moving forward and gives you reason to be.

Remember When You Are Deep In The Cocoon

remember when you are deep in the cocoon, that one day the butterfly will fly free. Mercia Tapping

Somebody asked me a few days ago why I had chosen a butterfly to be the front cover of my book.

I said that I had faced numerous challenges in the last few years, but I had always envisaged it as a temporary condition. I saw myself as being dormant in a cocoon and that one day the butterfly would joyously fly free again.

So if you are in the depths of a challenging period of your life, think of it as a cocoon which is preparing you for a very free and joyful next chapter of your life.

Just Scoop Up The Good Stuff

just scoop up the good stuff in life. it is there for the taking. Mercia Tapping

There are all sorts of good things in life, just waiting to be scooped up. But we need to take some action, because they will not necessarily fall into our laps, although they are there for the taking.

You need to start with believing that good things are there in the first place. It is like the unemployed person who believes that there are no jobs out there, if they believe that they will stop looking for one.

So believe in the good stuff is out there for you, and then just go and scoop it up!

Do We Do Endings Well

do endings well and you will have no regrets. Mercia Tapping

Do Endings Well.

There are all sorts of important endings in life whether they be leaving a job, ending a relationship or facing the death of a loved one. The list goes on.

The important thing is to do is do each ending WELL, so that you are left with no regrets.

Clearly, it is the ending of life which is the greatest of them all. Each one of us hopes in our hearts that we will be surrounded by loved ones who are holding our hands as we pass over to the other side. It is a profound gift and a privilege to be with someone during this time. But like all giving gifts, it has its own rewards and you are left with no regrets.

Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of my husband’s death. I have no regrets about how I behaved as his wife in the time leading up to his death. I gave it everything I had in me to give. Although he died of a terrible disease, brain cancer, he had a good death. So I have no regrets.

So be mindful of endings and do them well.

Love is in the small things. Actions always speak louder than words.

Never Give Up On Yourself.

I know that life may seem to be presenting endless and seemingly insurmountable challenges, but giving into despair and losing hope for a better life is such a painful way to live life.

If you have hope and do not give up on yourself, you will find there will be others who will lend a kind and compassionate hand to you.

And never forget to ask others to help you.

Persistence. Who ever said life would be easy or success would just drop into your lap?

The truth is that most of the successes in life, including those by very famous people have required unrelenting persistence and a commitment to the outcome, despite insurmountable odds.
