Dependent upon the day, maybe it’s all the little things in your life that bury you in despair. When this happens it can be helpful to turn to the larger themes. Your family. Your friends. Your loved ones. The positive influences that guide you through your life can be of great help when life comes at you from all directions. Your faith or guiding principles can be a beacon as well.
Close your eyes and think about what the larger forces are in your life. Especially the ones that give you joy or fulfillment. Is it your job? Your volunteer group? Your close circle of friends? Sometimes focusing on the big picture can give you hope when everything starts piling on.
