It wasn’t meant to be easy

life has a funny wayLife has a funny way of throwing random things in our direction when they are least expected and often VERY unwanted. It definitely isn’t easy, but these are the times we must pick ourselves up, dust off the difficulties and strive to carry on!

For the most part, I think that the troubles we get faced with happen to remind us just how strong we truly are. We all go along through the motions of any given day and never stop to give ourselves the much deserved credit for the accomplishments we have made. Our daily routines have become so embedded into our minds that we just naturally react to every situation in the best way possible. Sometimes things will work out right the first time around and other times we have to try again! The best way to handle these situations is, NEVER GIVE UP! As long as we choose to not give up and remain determined to succeed, we will never (3)

What happens when something occurs that was so unexpected; it throws major a wrench in our day to day activities? Of course the process we need to go through may be challenging to figure out, but our minds will lead us in the right direction, if we just listen to our own intuition.

Sometimes life becomes more like a movie that is just set to automatic repeat, or at least it is for me. Monday-Friday every day is the same, which is perfectly fine and preferred. What some might call boring and predictable, I call calm and drama-free! With all the insanity that goes on in this world, who really needs additional drama? I actually love coming images (14)home to be greeted by my ❤ husband and two adorable cats❤! We eat dinner while watching our favorite shows and then just spend good quality time together. I will read, write or crochet in the evenings, so it is very calm, happy, and peaceful!

When I stop to think about how precious life is and how quickly things can change, I am thankful for what I do have in my life. Sure maybe life may have been easier if I didn’t have MS, but I do and I choose to continue living! I try to NOT think about what could have happened or what should have happened because really, what is the point? 63449-Life-Has-Many-Ways-Of-Testing-A-Person-s-WillAnything that did happen did so for reasons I may never know and that is okay. Hell, if it was not MS it may have been something far worse.  

My heart breaks for the people out there that do not have the faintest idea of what actually makes them happy. It almost seems as though these people got lost somewhere along the way and never managed to find themselves. I cannot say they did not try, but I might say they gave up the search. I have known people that went through some pretty severe depression, but even in their darkest hours knew a couple images (15)things that did bring them joy. Of course, those joys did often get shadowed over by their negative thoughts and bad situations, but they were still able to recognize a few positive things in their life. Unfortunately, I have also learned that I do not have the power to turn someone’s mind around when it is clouded with depression. In times like these, there is only one person that can create happiness and that is themselves. For instances, my mother has been struggling lately and neither herDPere-vWAAAeBey husband nor myself can make her truly happy, she needs to do that on her own. I hate to put that so bluntly, but it is the truth and I do think that any legit therapist would agree with me on this for anyone.

The sad reality is life can be harsh and painful, but it is how we handle it that counts. Challenges happen to everyone, no matter how you are or where you live. Unlike so many other things in this world, hard times do not discriminate and will try destroying anyone images (16)and anything that stands in the way. The good news is, if you never surrender and continue fighting back, those hard times will move onto its next victim.

  1. It is a hard lesson to learn you don’t have the power to turn someone’s mind around. I took me a long time to understand that, and you are correct that it needs to come from themselves. It is also difficult not to downplay someone’s situation or peg it as insignificant. I have been guilty of that. in the past but much more understanding now! Have a good Friday!

  2. Great post! I’m happy that you find happiness in your life. Happiness is how we choose to perceive our circumstances. We can either play victim and believe that it’s just the way it is and therefore be miserable, or we can choose happiness. 🌺

    • Thank you so much Hillary! I do find it is much better to live our life positive rather than remain negative. Nothing good will ever come from being negative! You are SO correct saying happiness is how we choose to perceive our circumstances! I refuse to play victim in any situation! I really LOVED reading your comment!!!

      • Aww, thank you so much for your lovely comment 😊💕 That’s so sweet of you and you really made my day. I didn’t reply right away because I was lost for words.

        Sometimes it’s easier to stay negative than to be positive, and it seems to be a struggle for many of us to find happiness. Some people are super negative no matter what happens to them. I feel like we all have a choice as to whether or not we want to remain miserable. I feel like people who practice zen habits such as yoga and meditation know a secret lol


  3. Thanks for sharing!.. 🙂

    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”… Marilyn Monroe

  5. Well said, Alyssa. I believe in choosing joy as well, and I truly believe that the more you choose it, the more abundant it is in your life. Sort of what they say about energy and exercise but I’ll take their word for it – haha! I’m having similar issues with my mom so I understand where you’re coming from. It would be so much easier to just be able to make everything easy and happy for those that we love, but every person ultimately has to do that for themselves. Great post! 💕

    • Thank you Amanda! Leaning towards joy is the better and more positive way to live! I am really glad you liked this post. We were never promised that life was going to be easy, but we are strong enough and courageous enough to live it! I do the best I can to spread positivity and love because it is needed, especially with how insane this world can be!
