How to Find Happiness During Challenging Moments

coaching inspiration mindset

You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore until you decide to be happy. This quote is from Nightbirde/Jane Marczweski who was an America’s Got Talent gold buzzer winner.

I was moved by Nightbirde, this sweet, song-filled light.

I saw her audition for America’s Got Talent, and was awed in part by her beautiful original song, but mainly by her embodiment of grace under pressure.

She announced that she only had a 2% chance of survival from cancer, but focused on the hope of that 2% being greater than zero.

Given her poor prognosis, she had every reason to be miserable.

But she chose to have a positive outlook in a way that was right for her.

Here are some ways to help you, or someone you care about, focus on the goodness in life when going through a hard time.

  • Be kind to yourself. It’s hard to see the positives in a challenging situation if you’re beating yourself up for not being strong, cheery or energetic enough per your standards. Focus on how you can feel better now, such as drinking a comforting warm or cold beverage, wearing a favorite piece of clothing, or listening to music that moves you.
  • Celebrate what you are able to do to help you get through this moment. That could mean resting when you really need to, instead of doing. Maybe it’s that you feel slightly better in a moment, which gives you hope. It could be being able to accept kind words or gestures from someone, if it’s hard to acknowledge positive things about yourself.
  • Choose a special reward to look forward to that you’ll experience when you’re past the toughest point. Having a specific reward can help you visualize a more positive situation in the future, and serve as a guiding beacon, motivation, and inspiration.

There are many situations you can’t control in life.

You can control how you choose to think about those situations.

There are beautiful melodies all around. What special songs do you hear?
