It may seem that happiness is an unattainable goal in life and that it is only meant for the selected lucky few. Happiness is a state of mind that is not necessarily chosen or ignored, but is sought-after and fought for. When faced with an unbearable and powerless situation it is so much easier to just give up and suppress our desires to excel. It sometimes takes more energy to succeed and far less energy to fail ourselves. Life can be so darn complicated and it may become hard to see the bright side of any given situation, but there is one!
I have always held onto something my grandfather said to me a long time ago, “There is always someone going through something worse than you are in life.” I still do find this to be valuable and very wise information and would never really question anything he had said to me because of how much respect I had for him. But at the same time, how can you really judge what situation is worse in life for anyone? Everyone deals with their troubles in different ways and have their own views on the level of hardships. Is there any comparison in what I live with daily and what someone else with another chronic illness battles? Is my pain any less of a struggle than someone with other pain issues? I think it is all in the perspective of the one living with that struggle. I mean think about a person that was just diagnosed with incurable cancer. They have to deal with chemotherapy and so many other decisions, but they do their best to handle that situation the best they possibly can. Or even someone who has already been dealing with Multiple Sclerosis goes to the doctor for an update and is told their illness has progressed from Relapsing-Remitting MS to Secondary-Progressive MS, they have to adjust their mindset in life. Of course these situations are never easy and anyone would go through a vast amount of different emotions, but they do it! Life does not end or allow you to pause it when you are faced with an illness of any kind, you just are required to continue living the best way you can.
We are all supposed to find ways to cope with the life we were given and there is not a rewind or reset button available. Mistakes are inevitable, but we all must learn from our mistakes and carry on with a new outlook on life! We acknowledge what mistakes have been made, grieve what has been done and lost, set a game plan for moving forward, learn from what has taken place and move on with strength and determination for our future. I believe all of our mistakes made empower us to become even better than we were before. They build our character to be more enlightened and be able to see the bigger picture. We are all just perfectly imperfect humans with the knowledge of what was learned throughout our lives! If we just give up because we failed once in life, we are missing out on all the great things life will offer us!
Our lives are sometimes like a dance. Sometimes we might have our toes stepped on, but sometimes it will be a beautiful piece of work. There may be new and difficult moves to conquer and perform, but over time we will learn to be graceful and almost flawless. It takes determination to learn all the different dances involved in life, but it will end up being something we are incredibly proud of!
I hope y’all are having a nice and relaxing weekend! I know the weather where I am has been chilly and there is a constant threat of rain which is never very enjoyable, however I am doing what I can to just enjoy the days away from work! I even treated myself to getting my hair trimmed today. It had been a long time since taking care of my hair and it was a wonderful feeling! I am able to relate to my hairdresser’s thought process, which is always great! I like being around people who are down to earth and just very real with their thoughts. It is not so fun being around people that have a fake demeanor because you are always playing a guessing game about what is actually sincere or deceitful! I hope y’all are feeling well and getting the rest you deserve! I appreciate you stopping by my site today and really look forward to any comments you may have, I promise to respond as quickly as I can! As always I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort!!
