Life may be a sunny summer afternoon for others, brimming with happiness and cheerful delights; but for some, it may be another day of weathering their own storm and getting passed through the long, winding, stressful maze of life.
It is easy, it is hard. It is happy, it is sad. It is a constant contradiction, it is life. And you are here to live it. You are here because you need to take part in its beautiful cycle.
Most of your days may be rough.
Your boss might have consumed every inch of patience you have in you. You may have lost that promotion you have been eyeing on. You may have just been fired from your job of five years. You may have been body shamed and bullied. Your best friend might have betrayed you. Your relationship might be on the verge of breaking apart. Maybe you are in the middle of a grueling divorce. Maybe you have failed the most important exam of your life after tirelessly studying day in and day out. Maybe you just found out that somebody so close to your heart has been stricken with cancer and your world just suddenly crashed on you in one snap.
Or maybe you are just lost and you don’t know what to do or where to go.
You are devastated on all levels. You try to wake up and just get by another day. You drink your usual coffee and rush to work. You are disappointed from head to toe, broken from inside out. But nobody knows, nobody notices, except you.
You have mastered the art of concealing the battles you are fighting inside your head. You seem okay, you try to be. You smile, you laugh, and you do the usual things you do.
But in silence, you drown. Your mind wanders through its darkest corners asking yourself why nothing seems to be going right. Why you keep on coming back to that same spot that causes you pain. Why?
Then you wake up and realize that nothing’s changed. You are still you; your battles are still the same.
When you reach this very moment dear one, may you remember that life is what you perceive of it. Its beauty will depend mainly on how you see it. You can either choose to see its wonders or the disaster it brings.
Yes, life is hard. It is full of hurdles, of diverting paths, of blunders, disappointments and misread signals. Yes, it is difficult but it certainly is beautiful.
It is never easy, but this is what makes you, you!
All of the pains you have been in have constantly been the building blocks of your character. You may not realize it, but you are not the same person you were yesterday. You have been changed by all the experiences you have surpassed. You are braver, you are wiser now.
At times you may feel like you are in rock bottom, that there is no way out and failure is your only option. But darling trust that everything is but temporary, whatever it is it shall pass. You just have to keep going.
Walk, run if you must, pause if you’re tired but don’t ever give up. Keep moving forward.
Keep believing that everything under the sun has its reason. You are living the life you have now – experiencing what you are supposed to go through because it is meant to make you a better version of yourself.
Keep the faith that everything will be okay. That there will come a day that your smile will no longer have to conceal the monsters inside your head, that you’ll truly be happy and worry free.
Most days, life will teach its lesson the hard way. You have to go through pain, heartbreak, and grief, whatever it is that will break you to pieces; life will throw it at you.
Yes, life’s a hard teacher. But the lessons you’ll learn, and the outcome it will bring will be worth every tear you’ve shed. And you’ll just be surprised how strong you’ve turned out to be.
All your scars, all the hurt, the whole process of falling and recovering will all give way for your metamorphosis.
Life was never promised to be easy dear one, but it surely is worthy. Savor every bit of it, savor even the pain. It is what makes your life a beautiful journey.
Darling, the climb will be hard, but the view will be worth it!
Life is a Journey, Not a Destination
Life can’t be described by only one or two words. It is the mixture of everything. The mixture of happiness and sadness, success and failure, comfort and pain, encouragement and frustration, opportunities and frustrations, love and hatred, relief and sorrow, and struggle and giving up. Life is not perfect, but it is beautiful.
Life is a journey, not a destination. Everyone takes every step in a very unique way. This journey may take you down by great storms and bumpy road but it does not matter, what matter the most is how many times you stand-up to continue. Each moment on journey of life you are presented with an opportunity to react differently. You may even make the same choices over and over again because you do not know how to choose otherwise. You have the power to change things and not walk around in a constant circle.
Life is a mixture of happiness and sadness. Nobody grew-up with a constant emotion. Many situations will test our emotion. It will make us happy, sad or angry but one thing we must remember, it is just a test given to us to make us stronger.
Life is a game and the only rule is there is no mistake only lessons to learn. You won’t always be a winner, unless it is not a game. You must struggle to survive but don’t be greedy to succeed at the expense of others.
Life is not all about lying down in a bed of roses. There are points in our life that we will be wounded by the thorns of life. We will feel the pain of loss, loneliness, failure and rejection but one thing is clear, there is peace after everything. There is rainbow after the rain.
Life is a lifetime challenge. Everyone has his burden but what counts is how you carry it. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose. The important thing is how you made it and what you feel about it. You are successful if you feel the contentment and you know in your heart that you made it in a good way.
Life offers many opportunities. It is up to you if you will grab it or you will let it pass. Sometimes, there are opportunities that are not really meant for you. Keep in mind that the failure you once experienced is not the end of everything. There are lots of opportunities for you and the only thing you must do is to choose and strive for it.
Life is all about love. But sometimes there is less love in the heart of everyone so there is having space for hatred. Sometimes, there is too much love that it created hatred. Insecurities and selfishness takes place when there is too much love. We must always remember that balance is one of the important things in life.
Life is a beautiful stuggle. You must keep the journey going not because of the guarantee but because of the possibility. Sometimes struggles are exactly what you need in our life. If you were to go through our life without any obstacles, you would be crippled. You would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets, and don't forget the power in the struggle. But sometimes, giving-up for something is the best choice. Giving-up for the things we struggled for doesn’t always mean we are weak. It simply means that we want to take another opportunity and we will try again to succeed. Do not be afraid of change. It is important to be happy, and sometimes the only way to find happiness is by letting go of what we have been clinging on to for so long. This is not a negative thing; it is creating a new life.
Life is a journey with so many options. A world to discover, dreams to chase, goals to reach, and people to meet. There will be times you may not know what you want, who you want, or where you want to go. In these moments, always remember, the best choice is standing still
