This edition of the Good advice project comes from Benedict Santillan Espinosa #18; Home Cook, Youth Volunteer and Globetrotter. Thank you sharing your Good advice Ben! :3

"Bounce Back and Thrive."

We all face adversity in our lives. Adversity does not just show itself in dramatic ways, like cancer and car accidents. It also shows itself each day, in small ways, through 4-hour traffic, arguments with our significant others, adapting to a different culture, living abroad, and workplace politics.

That is one of the things I realized from my trip outside the Philippines through YMX (a youth exchange program of Philippines and Netherlands). Each adversity moment is a learning moment in its own right. We miss countless opportunities to grow because we don’t know how to appreciate and identify these moments. We must somehow, someway, adapt & be resilient.

'I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.'
-Carl Gustav Jung.

If you seem to be coping with more than your fair share of frustration and disappointment, check your focus for a minute. Are you only seeing the gaps, where reality isn’t meeting your expectations, or are you also acknowledging the good that is coming your way?

No one’s perfect. Like you, I still struggle every day. I try to remind myself that each day, and each step in our journey, is a chance to get a little better.

Enduring or being resilient is not enough, we can choose to thrive!
