Behind the positive

Life is filled with challenges and choices. I prefer to think that all the challenges we encounter, make us stronger and provide us with opportunities that will better our lives. Often, we see the way another person’s life “appears” to be, but “appearances” can be deceiving because no one has the “perfect” life. Behind the prettiest smile, can lie sadness and pain. Honestly, tears do not fix pain or hardships. Of course, I do think letting the tears flow can help for a short time, but we must stand up, brush off the sadness, and push forward with life!

It is the same thing with the choices and decisions we make in life. I know I mentioned this in a previous post, but I believe with each choice and decision we make can change the course of life for the better or worst. Life can feel like an unorganized maze, and it is not always easy to get through, especially the way we think it “should” go. I have always thought that our story was written for us before we were born but can be altered slightly by the decisions we make.

Some things in life are out of our control, such as the traffic we run into, being laid off, or the weather. Regardless of how powerless we feel, it is crucial to never give up. Many of us fear failing, but I do think the only time we fail is when we give up and we allow the challenging times to paralyze us from the success we were meant to experience.

There have been many times in my life when I did not have a clue what to do or which road to go down. I have run into many barriers, especially when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, but I refuse to stop trying to break down all the barriers I stumble into. The life I am living is the one I was meant to live and despite the frustrations and challenges, I know I can handle it. I might not always deal with things in the most graceful and positive ways, but in time I have no doubts that I will.

There are many things that I know I am not great at. One of many is patience. The crazier thing is, I am extremely patient with everyone else, but have none for myself. I guess it is just that I have lost patience with the job search. It has become extremely discouraging and beyond frustrating. I do know good things come in time, and everything happens for a reason. If only there were a fast-forward button that would allow for the right job to happen tomorrow!

Feeling like I am on house arrest has been irritating. The levels of frustration and isolation have caused my temper to elevate at random times and sometimes for no reason at all. I love my cats more than words can explain, but there have been days I did not even want to be around them. The poor cats hardly ever do anything wrong, but they just want my attention constantly. This is not like me, and I hate feeling this way. Have you ever just wanted to get away from everything and everyone, and be on a quiet island with no cell signal?

Thank you for stopping by my site today. This post was basically just me releasing my emotions because this is something we all need to do during life. Being positive every moment of every day is not always possible and that is okay. There is nothing wrong with not being okay, but at least still trying to find happiness. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
