Our lives are not perfect, they are a series of highs, lows, and everything in between. During our lowest times in life, we are often blind to the light at the end of the tunnel. Therefore, it is always helpful to remind ourselves that hard times will come and they will go. What we don’t often think about is how to bounce back after being in a major funk. Luckily, the best is yet to come as long as you do your best to get your “mojo” back!

Whenever you feel caught between a high and low in your life, think back to the times where you were feeling great, accomplishing goals, and living your best life! However, don’t look back to those times through jealousy, but instead, look at it as proof that you are capable of greatness. After all, getting your mojo back isn’t about changing who you are, it’s about rediscovering what you were once capable of.

There are plenty of ways we can get in a funk, from sickness to heartache, financial problems, or any unexpected circumstances in our lives. But just as quickly as these hardships come, they can leave. Hearts mend, new opportunities arise, and every new hurdle provides us with the strength to get through it. So when you really think about it, the hard times allow us to grow, learn, and become more resilient.

Next time you go through a low in life, remember that it is only temporary, but the skills you learn when you adapt to tough situations will make it that much easier for you to bounce back!

If you are looking to get your mojo back, think back to when you lost it. How did you handle it? What did it teach it? And most importantly, how did you grow from it? Next, think back to the best times of your life and the role you played in making them great. Were you doing things that made you happy? Did you have a solid routine that made life easier? Were you surrounded by supported people? Were you working hard? There are a million questions you can ask yourself about your behavior during the highs and lows, so take the time to dig deep into yourself.

Use the bad times to remember your strengths and lessons, and the good times to remember the positive habits of yours. With all of these reminders of how resilient and capable you are, you should be ready to jump back into a life that makes you happy, motivated, and fulfilled!

Don’t discredit the small wins, stay focused, and shift your outlook to remain positive. Most importantly, remember that your “mojo” never left you, it’s just waiting to reconnect!

    I definitely need this reminder. As a new mother and almost mom of TWO I can forget myself and my small wins all too easily.
