are you unhappy about where you are {part 2}

If you are unhappy about where you are there are a few things you can do about it.  This is the second part to the first half of "are you unhappy about where you are?"

Remember, you are the only one who can change your situation, with the help of God, and that hard times aren't necessarily bad times.  "Everything if given to God can be our gateway to joy," remember that.

You and I can use the hard times in our lives as motivations to stay focused, on course, and to work at getting ourselves to the place where we want to be.

Believe me, I'm learning this first hand, right alone with you.

Now.  The next step for people who find themselves unhappy where they are is:

4.  Be thankful.  Really.  Count your blessings.  We all are blessed in many ways if we just stop to see it.  There are so many hurting people in the world, but just because we're hurting doesn't mean we are not blessed.  Although you may not be where you want to be, I bet you have a lot of things to be thankful about.  Just look around.

5.  Help others.  We all have skills, talents and gifts that God has bestowed on us.  Use those gifts and talents to help someone else.

6.  Believe in yourself no matter what.  Get started! Don't give up.  You may have to edit a bit, but don't give up.

This is not a comprehensive list.  These are just some strategies to help you get moving toward being happy where you are.
