Courage

courage is not a natural trait. It is acquired through adversity. Mercia Tapping

I think there is a tendency to think that some people are just naturally more courageous than others. By and large, I do not think that is correct. True courage is found when we face unexpected adversity and how we choose to deal with it. It is only then that we discover those courageous parts of ourselves that we never knew existed.

Don’t Let Life

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on June 9, 2017

don't let life just happen to you. make it happen the way you want it. Mercia Tapping

Granted, some things happen to you in life over which you had no control, but for the most part, we have more control than we realize.

It starts in the morning with good hygiene when we decide to brush our teeth. Some of these behaviors become so inculcated into our daily lives, that they have become good habits.

But I am talking more about those times when maybe we feel that life is drifting or passing us by, or perhaps current life challenges have just overwhelmed us, and we feel utterly helpless. It is those times when we need to ratchet up our level of intention to make life happen the way we want it.

The level of effort required may seem hard or even unreasonable, but at least if you do it, you have a shot at life eventually turning out the way that you would like.

Life Serves Us

Filed in Courage, Inspirational, Life by on May 26, 2017

life servesus many challenges that we would never choose, but we can choose how we stand up to them. Mercia Tapping

When I was younger, I embraced challenges, life would be boring without them, and I set myself some lofty goals. Later in life, I discovered that the biggest challenges are not those that you take on voluntarily, but those that life hurls at you, unbidden and unwanted. They are the challenges which happen through no choice of our own.

Where we DO have some choice is how we stand up and fight those challenges head on. I am not saying that this is easy, far from it. But you do have a choice as to whether to let what has happened to you, destroy your life or not. And it means digging deep to find the courage to take on the fight.

These times are very difficult to endure but never give up hope, because even the most dense of fogs finally lifts. You just need to keep the faith and be patient.

Be Like Fish

be like a fish. keep swimming even against the tide. Mercia Tapping

No one ever guaranteed any of us a smooth ride; indeed during the struggle to create a new and better life, it may seem you are always swimming upstream and against the tide. But never stop swimming. Be like fish.

I think it takes a lifetime of self exploration to finally figure out who you are and your unique voice and contribution to humanity. Once you have found it, let it ring out!

Even In The Blue Periods

even in the blue periods of your life, there are moments of beauty. Mercia Tapping

I know all too well that there are life events that can bring you to your knees, as you struggle with adversity. You wonder when it will ever end, as the emotional or physical pain is crushing your spirit. One strategy for coping with this is to search out each day some little chinks of light, something that can make you smile, even for a brief moment or two. It is a reminder that a sweeter side to life does indeed exist. Nothing like focusing ones mind on the positive.

You Have Climbed Mountains

you have climbed mountains, cnoquered peaks, now breathe and enjoy the view. Mercia Tapping

At some point in time, all your persistence and courage in conquering adversity will suddenly begin to manifest itself. I think it is important to take a breather and give oneself a pat on the back for all the progress you have made. Granted there maybe more to go as life is never complete until it is over forever. But meanwhile, do not forget to pause and enjoy the new view. Chances are it is a whole lot better than 12 months ago. And if you are still in the throes of the battle, take heart, your turn will come.

the real successes in life never come easy but are achieved through persistence. Mercia Tapping

Sometimes I wish life was a little easier, that my goals were a little simpler to accomplish; I would not be adverse to a few just dropping in my lap! But the truth is that the sweetest victories of all, have not come easy. They have come through dogged hard work and persistence. Every great athlete will tell you the same thing.

When Going Slow

when going slow is all you can do, enjoy the change of pace. Mercia Tapping

There are times, such as an illness of a loved one, your own illness or another life event, which forces your normal pattern of life to seemingly go on hold, or at least go infernally slow. The natural tendency is to rail against it and be frustrated. I have found in these circumstances that the only thing to do is surrender to the change of pace, and find something to enjoy about it.
