Why It's OK To Take Things One Day At A Time

Life is unpredictable. It throws obstacles at us at a common occurrence and we have to take the time to learn how to overcome them and move past them.

It is down to these obstacles that we often question ourselves and the choices that we make in life. We sometimes find our self wondering if we've taken the right path, if we have somehow made a wrong turn and are now facing the consequences. The obstacles can knock our confidence.

If we think of our entire future in one great big sweep it can be daunting, so we need to tackle the obstacles in our way one day at a time. If we try to fight them all off in one go, they can crush us.

Sometimes, we need to take a deep breath and deal with each problem as they face us. Think of it like driving at night. We know where we are generally going (whether that be marriage, goals) yet we can only see the road ahead of us. We can make the journey that way and, although it may scare us and we feel as though there is danger at every turn, we can reach the end.

We are all just taking things one day at a time. When we get up in the morning, get ready, go to work, we are taking each step one after the other and in a lot of ways, life is a lot like that.

Now, I'm not saying that it is wise to have this approach throughout your entire life, you are going to have to make some decisions but it's OK to just take things day by day sometimes- especially while we try to work things out.

The thing is to remember that you're not alone and that many people have, and probably still are, going through the same thing as you.

Take one day at a time, tackle each challenge as it comes and remember that all of the troubles that you have faced before you have gotten through.
