Do you ever sit and just think about how funny life is? How things just seem to happen out of nowhere but then eventually it all ends up working out and coming together? This has been on my mind for a while but after recent events, it has been on my mind more then ever before.
Life has a funny way of bringing the most unlikely of souls together. People who are complete opposites, people who may look at each other and think, nope not in a million years.. Those are the people life brings together. Life brings them together and they have the happiest life together. These are the people that make the best memories, the people who smile the most, laugh the most. But just because someone laughs a lot, doesn’t mean they do not cry a lot, doesn’t mean they do not have there struggles or tough times. Everyone has there own journey and own struggles they go through in life and I think we have gotten so comfortable basing our life struggles off of our neighbors and everyone around us that we forget not everyone’s struggles are the same; and they shouldn’t be. Each person on this planet was put on here for a different purpose, a unique purpose and each of those purposes are significant to that individuals journey and how they go through there individual lives. No two people should have the same journey and the same struggles, which means you should not compare yourself to anyone else. You travel through your life at the speed at which you where meant to travel through out. Everything happens in due time and just because you see someone else who may have something you don’t or who may be a step ahead of you; that doesn’t make that person better then you that just means its not your time yet, and that’s okay. We need to be more accepting of our individual lives now a days and ourselves and whatever stage we are at in this dance we call life.
I sit here and i think about recent situations that have occurred in my life. Recent events that caused me to have to make a life decisions i honestly never thought i would make and never thought i would be ready for. But life knows when you need a push, life knows when you need some help moving on or moving along in a particular direction. Recent situations have really taught me that things happen. Things will happen that are outside of your control and you have to be willing to adapt, adapt, regroup, dust off and keep it moving. You can not let one set back or one rough moment carry through day to day and continue to affect you.
Even when its hard, you have to try and find the positivity within yourself. You can not expect to look and find positivity in someone else when you can not even find it with in yourself. I am a strong believer that you are one of the main sources that affect your own mood. You are the creator of your own destiny so why not make sure it is as positive as possible? Do not leave your positivity in the hands of anyone else but yourself.
