When we are faced with difficulty, sometimes it’s hard to remain positive and have hope that things are going to get better. When we are worrying and over-thinking, it’s ever harder to see the silver lining or the light at the end of the tunnel. One thing I’ve learned so far is that tough times, never lasts! They say, the toughest soldiers get the hardest battles and that life will not bring us to something we cannot handle. We are all a little stronger than we think we are—it’s only a matter of using our energy to focus on our strengths rather than falling victim to life.

Here are 10 Things to Remember When You’re Going Through Tough Times:

  1. Everything Can and Will change.
  2. You overcame challenges before.
  3. It’s a learning experience.
  4. Not getting what you want can be a blessing.
  5. Allow yourself to have some fun.
  6. Being kind to yourself is the best medicine.
  7. Other people’s negativity isn’t worth worrying about.
  8. You have lots of strength as a person.
  9. Anything is possible.
  10. Great things take time.

  1. I can see people, and myself, coming back to this post time after time when faced with some difficulty. Such a great post, love it babe.

  2. These are great points, Candace. <3 Love them!!

    Also, about the collab. I just saw your comment over at my place. I know this is a bit late but the next one is actually tomorrow. It's on Self Love and Acceptance. If you will not be able to join, that's alright. There's another on October 5.

    But do let me know if you can join this time or not.

  3. Really needed this tonight. It seems that some tough times last longer than we expect them to. I have to believe that there are blessings in it. I am definitely stronger now than before, but some days still seem harder than others. I will keep the faith no matter what 😊

    1. Hi Jelena, yes sometimes tough times last forever, maybe to the point where we feel like they’ll never end. The good thing is, there is only one way from there and it’s up… up to better and brighter days. Keep that faith and remember the strength that’s in you 🙂 Thank you for reading.

  4. Hello Candace, thank you for stopping by my blog, and for your like and follow. Yours is beautiful. I just read the Michael Almonte, NYPD page – inspiring! I’m looking forward to browsing further back. I have friends in Trinidad (Port of Spain), a beautiful island although it is some years since I was there. Best wishes, Tony.

      1. Hello Candace,
        You’re very welcome and oh yes, I too am a huge one for reminders. I need them often. There is always a different way of seeing them and we all write them in our own way which helps keep it fresh.
        Thank you for a lovely post 🙋🏻💐

  5. Hi Candace, thanks for visiting and liking my blog site…I am totally impressed by your candidness and your willingness to expand and expound on your experiences to the benefit of others. We have quite a lot in common, and it is my pleasure to share your blog with my FB family. Wishing you continued success in all your endeavors…especially your relationship with Andy.

    Cherish the memories of today
    Store them well with the past
    Because like the sad memories of any day
    The good ones will also last…

    1. Awwww.. thank you so much. And thank you for sharing my blog and for all your well wishes. It means a lot 🙂

      I enjoy your blog as well, it’s very inspirational.

      Thank you again. Have a blessed day 🙂

        1. Yep, I do. It didn’t hit the island I live on, but our neighboring islands.. it’s horrific. Some became completely inhabitable. Worst of all, another one is right behind. Irma is now heading to Florida, where my mom resides, I’m praying it passes with minimal damage.

          1. My father lives near Miami. 😬. He evacuated already. He’s from Puerto Rico. Gorgeous island. I heard that power and water were affected, but the buildings were saved. Sorry to hear about all the damage.

  6. Thank you very much for that. It’s good to have this to return to now and then because unfortunately some of those things are what I forget.
