Welcome to Tragedy Survivors
One of my favorite quotes is, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words…watch your words, they become your actions…watch your actions, they become your habits…watch your habits, they become your character…watch your character, it becomes your destiny!”
I started with that quote because it’s a quote I need to remind myself of every day. I feel I need to guard my thoughts because positive thoughts become positive results and negative thoughts become negative results. I choose positive!
In a world filled with so many blessings and so many wonderful things, we can find ourselves going through life overlooking them and missing them altogether.
Sometimes we get caught up thinking about what isn’t going our way or what hasn’t happened yet or the way things used to be. Those thoughts multiply and can evoke emotion…emotions that sometimes don’t make us feel good about ourselves.
That’s why I started with the quote at the top because anytime I feel myself starting to feel bad I remind myself of that quote. I choose to focus on the following:
- What I’m grateful for and the wonderful things that have happened over my lifetime.
- How lucky I am to have so many wonderful blessings.
- How can I help others focus on what they have to be thankful for.
I believe we’re all living because we have a purpose to fulfill. That purpose is a good purpose so don’t waste your abilities on things that don’t lift up other people. Use your abilities for good and leave a legacy that continues after time has run out on you here on Earth.
That’s part of the reason this website has been created. Another part of the reason this website has been created is because so many people are affected by tragedies. Some of them are natural disasters, some are accidents and some are because of evil actions. Our world is filled with many people who have overcome these tragedies and have inspired others who have witnessed them rise above the ashes.
Our world is also filled with people who are hurting and need help. They haven’t figured out how to overcome their tragedy YET. They haven’t figured out how to rise above the ashes YET. There are so many people who love them and care for them and want to see them get back on their feet but they don’t always have the right words or actions to help them.
My hope is that if you’re struggling to get back on your feet and no one you know is able to help you, my hope is that you find that person who can relate to you, that person who has overcome their struggles and that person who can inspire you to overcome your struggles!
Beyond that there are many life altering moments that people encounter, moments that seem like the end of the world as a life is hanging in the balance. In these moments many heroes just happen to be in the right place at the right time to save a life. As if they were born to be a guardian angel to save that life or those lives at that exact moment in time! Sometimes a life is saved and the person never had a chance to thank their life saver. Hopefully this can help these reunions occur and build on these special bonds!
May you have a wonderful day and may your eyes be open to all the amazing blessings that come your way!
