It's no secret 2020 has been a challenging year. No matter what situation you are in, just know that obstacles are here to challenge your soul's growth and potential. With the right mindset, these mantras help you during difficult times.
When under emotional stress, mantras calm the body and channel the thoughts back to a more positive state, to be in control of one's thoughts.
"I accept the situation and can only control my own thoughts, actions and behaviors."
When going through a difficult situation, we must learn to make peace with the situation and understand how we can control actions and reactions.
"Take actions on the things that I can change."
To piggyback on the first quote, every situation in life has a learning lesson. Whatever the lesson may be, just know only you can control your actions and any changes that need to be made. Sometimes we have to endure loss in order to learn the most important things in life.
"I have two wolves that live inside my head. The wolf of the light. And the wolf of the dark. Right now, I choose to feed the wolf of the light."
We can control our thoughts and fuel positive, healthy thoughts or continue to spiral through negativity to keep ourselves down in the dumps.
"I have been put into this situation to strengthen my soul's growth."
All of these thoughts pertaining to this mantra have been mentioned above.
"Today I will do my best. I will let go of any self doubt, criticism or self-inflicting thoughts or harm."
We are our own worst critic. We can be hard on ourselves but we must realize we can only do so much in one day. For today, try to do your best and be proud of that.
"I trust in my life path and my life's journey."
Trust in your life's journey. Trust in God. Make smart decisions that benefit you, and do not tempt you.
"Everything in life is temporary. The feelings and emotions I am experiencing right now are temporary."
Nothing in life is permanent. Not the seasons and not your life. There is beginning and there is an end. The hard times too will pass, and know that your current emotions are temporary.
