Embrace Change

A painful experience such as losing a loved one, or being involved in an accident that left you disabled, will drastically change your world. You have to learn to create a new sense of normalcy, even if it means letting go of certain activities or goals that are no longer meaningful to you, and finding new opportunities that give you purpose.

Embracing change will help you to move forward and create a more fulfilling life for yourself.

Live In The Present

It takes courage and willingness to make a conscious decision to live fully in the present moment, instead of dwelling on what happened or how your life used to be before the incident. So, fight the urge to relive your painful past, and find reasons to be happy now.

Do The Things You Enjoy

No matter what you’ve been through in the past, you deserve to be happy now. So, engage in things that bring your joy. This can be listening to music, playing with children, painting pictures, watching a movie, or dancing with your family and friends.

As you do these things, you’ll find yourself thinking a lot less about your painful experience, and enjoying your present life more.
