Life is very much a balancing act, and we are always just a step away from a fall, with that in mind, some will say strive for the best and prepare for the worst! but I say strive for the best and prepare for the best! A well-balanced life comes out of a curious blend of hopefulness, and confidence about the future. In all your aspirations you must always hope for success, but if for some reason you fail, dust yourself off and try again with no shame and with no guilt.
I call this practical wisdom and an openness to accepting and facing whatever shows up, good or bad. Sometimes it is necessary to fight what comes against you and sometimes it is necessary to just go with the flow; with wisdom and faith, you learn what to do in different situations and seasons.
The key to feeling grounded and calm is to never believe that something greater is working against you. Even in times of difficulties, you need to believe that all challenging situations are blessings in disguise.
So, be your happy self, relaxed and believe that no matter what is happening at any time in your life, just trust it is well.
