Love the Highs and Lows

Have you ever felt so defeated in life you just want to give up?  You push harder and harder to get the results you’re seeking but nothing is going right so why keep trying?

On the flip side, have you ever felt so high on life that nothing can stop you from achieving your goals?  God seems to be placing all the necessary things in your lap to make amazing things happen for you.

We’ve all been in both situations (and if you can’t think of a high or low moment in your life think a little harder because I guarantee you’ve had a few of them).

My question to you is what do you do when you’re in these moments of high’s and low’s?

 

I know from working with people for years, and from myself personally, that the high moments are often overlooked.  Things are going so good that you keep trucking along through your day not taking a moment to celebrate your successes.  The high moment is often overlooked until you hit a low and your world is flipped upside down.

The low’s bring a feeling of defeat, failure and can put us in a deep depression.  These are the times we begin to question ourselves and why we even try.  It is written all over our face, posture and attitude that we’re unhappy and unapproachable.

So why is it that we don’t simply celebrate the Highs and the Lows?

High moments should be celebrated daily!  Stop and smell the roses, look at the things you’re accomplishing and give yourself a pat on the back.  The more you celebrate these moments the easier it is to stay in the momentum of making BIG things happen for you and the less frequently you will hang out in moments of low.

Low moments should also be celebrated daily!  As difficult as that sounds I challenge you to sit in meditation the next time you’re in a funk.  Get in tune with that feeling, ask yourself why you’re feeling that way and what you can do to change your mindset.  Then make a list of all the things you’re grateful for.  (I made a list of 50 things I was grateful for during a low time… that small assignment woke me up to the fact that my problems are minute compared to what they could be).

It’s also important to celebrate the lows because these are the moments in our life that we can learn and grow from.
