When you know who you are, its easier to know what you are about and ultimately, what you really need. As an adult you realize that the world is an ambiguous place and love doesn't conquer all. We hope for the best, at the same time prepare for the worst.We rarely get to see the catastrophe coming, no matter how well we try to prepare for it. We try so hard to protect ourselves, but it doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Cause when the bad things come, they come out of nowhere. But sometimes that is how the good things come too!!
We're all gonna die, we don't get much say over how or when,but we do get to decide on how we are gonna live. So decide , is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? We just want to survive the storm. We pray,"Please ,God,just get me to the other side.We never imagine what it'll be like when we get there.What if when the storm passes nothing's left.
Failure is inevitable, unavoidable. But failure should never get the last word.You have to not take "NO" for an answer. And take what's coming to you. Never give in...Never give up.... Stand up and take it.
Looking back its easy to see when a mistake is been made. To regret a choice that seemed like a decent idea at the time. But at times, if we used our best judgement and listened to our hearts, we're more likely see that we chose wisely. And avoided the most deepest most painful regret of them all. The regret that comes from letting amazing pass you by.
Why does it feel so good to get rid of things, to unload, to let go? Maybe when we actually see how little we need to actually survive, it makes us realize how powerful we actually are. To strip down to only what we need. To hang on only to what we can't do without. What we need, not just to survive but to thrive.
