Life can be overwhelming.

Sometimes it is difficult to know what is the right thing to do.

Sometimes it is hard to find the courage and strength to do the next thing.

When you feel overwhelmed, you just want the problem to go away. 

Take a deep breath and repeat:

“I don’t have to solve this all today, I just need to be brave, cling to hope, and do the next right thing.” 

You don’t have to have all the answers today. 

Remember the old joke about how to eat an elephant? One bite at a time. 

Feel the pressure lift off your shoulders.

The entire problem does not need to be solved today. Focus on the task present – today. A series of small steps will make a big difference. 

Even when you know the next right thing to do, it can feel scary or uncertain.Take comfort in knowing that you don’t have to go it alone. Define your support system – family, friends, community, Live On Purpose.

And, cling to hope.It can be hard to stay positive in tough times, but hope can carry you through. Hope gives you the strength to keep going, even when things seem impossible. 

No matter what life throws our way, these words of wisdom can help us stay on track.

I can be brave.

I can cling to hope

I can do the next right thing.
