Challenging Times

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way”.  Viktor E. Frankl

Without any doubt, the Covid-19 health crisis is like nothing we’ve ever experienced before.  So many lives have changed, so many unanswered questions, and our stress level is probably up to the roof.  As I reflect on all these unfortunate events, I want to share these quotes that have helped me when facing challenges.

“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations”. Zig Ziglar

“Life is like an elevator.  Up and down, just make sure you get off the right floor”.  Keith Douglas

“Often, we see challenges as a roadblock, a setback, and we tend to give up. Challenges usually make us stronger and First Lady Michelle Obama said it clearly: You should never see your challenges as a disadvantage.  Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages”.  Michelle Obama

“Rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will”.  Unknown

“Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity.  Don’t fight them.  Just search a different way to stand”.  Oprah Winfrey

“You may encounter many defeats but you must not be defeated”.  Maya Angelou

Next time, you encounter a challenge, be ready for greater things, and always remember you have to look beyond the problem to find the opportunity.

“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations”.  Chuck Swindoll

  1. Loved this quote: “Life is like an elevator. Up and down, just make sure you get off the right floor”. Keith Douglas

  2. Yes! The cover 19 outbreak as effected everyone! I think its human and natural to have fear and anxiety over it but it really helps to be realistic and have a positive attitude during these difficult times!

  3. Its such a challenging time and all of us have to do what my mom says “adapt and adjust.” I think the more positive and kind we can be the better!

  4. You’re right, everything is so unknown right now. This is the last week of school for my boys, but they’ve been home since the beginning of March. Now they are both asking if school will start like normal in August and I wish I had answers for them. My younger son is so excited about starting kindergarten in the fall.

  5. I really believe that in challenging times, it’s all about perspective. Once you begin to see the good in things and the opportunity, there really never is a negative.

  6. I definitely loved this quotes, they are strong and powerful to stir us up on every problems we’ve encounter in this life. Especially this quote “Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don’t fight them. Just search a different way to stand”. Oprah Winfrey

  7. This year is very challenging.All people suffering because of the pandemic. Many people died, unemployed and sacrifice because of the virus but despite the situation we need to keep going to fight against the virus I really hope this crisis will be end soon. Love your quotes!

  8. This is such a hard time for everyone. But as it drags on I am seeing the emotional harm that is being done to nearly everybody. We need to get past this sooner than later. It is making our world an ugly place.

  9. despite the somber topic, this quote made me chuckle a little “Life is like an elevator. Up and down, just make sure you get off the right floor”. Keith Douglas – never heard of that one before! A good reminder to not be asleep at the wheel, even during challenging times! Blessings!

  10. For me this has been a challenging and stressful time but most important is that I am healthy and I haven’t lost anyone dear to me because of this pandemic.

  11. I am loving all the quotes. you are right it is a very challenging time and we just have to keep moving forward and hope that all will be ok soon x
