INEVITABLE UPS AND DOWNS OF LIFE
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog at this hour. There are some belief that we have to let go of so as to be able to face the reality of life. You may have been told that the journey of life will be easy and stress-free, it is not true. There may be a path that is easier than the other but that doesn't not make it "easy". The journey of life is a survival of the fittest. You need to always stand on your feet and never give up. Well, sit back, relax and enjoy all that I have packaged for your reading pleasure.
There are times when you will be in the corner of your room alone asking yourself some pertinent questions to unravel the reason behind struggles and setbacks. You begin to ask why it seems like the whole world has turned against you, why you are always faced with challenges or even why you don't always get the result that you desire no matter how much effort you employ. The struggles and setbacks will surely come but you have to be ready to fight against it.
The hurdles of life that we face are sometimes what make life interesting especially when we come out triumphant, that is, when we refuse to give up. In as much as we don't like anything that does not bring us comfort as humans, the truth must be told that we will always encounter potholes in the journey of life. The journey will not be rough all through, so you must endure the rough moments so that you can also enjoy the smooth ride. If you give up when it's rough then you are denying yourself from experiencing the bliss that is awaiting you.
The true character of a person will be evident in how they deal with their down moments. Of course, nobody would ever fail at enjoying their sweet "up" moments but a lot of people will give up during the phase of their lives when they are down. Would you like to pass the test of character? Then, you must be able to go through every phase of life as it comes, whether it is easy or not. Don't be brainwashed by motivational speakers who would only preach to you that there is only an easy path in the journey of life. Face the reality!
We were designed to be able to deal with everything that life throws at us. You don't have an excuse for giving up. All you just need is to hold on a little longer and you'd realize that you will bounce back stronger and better. Challenges are meant to serve the purpose of helping you achieve your goals, only if you are able to face the situation without holding back. We should make it a norm to enjoy the difficult moments of our life just the way we enjoy the sweet moment - though it may not be easy but it will make you see life in another light.
There is this friend of mine who always feel extremely bad about being jobless to the extent that he tell me how he cries sometimes in the middle of the night. I told him to enjoy these moments of joblessness to the fullest doing what he likes best, be it sleeping, traveling, reading, making research, etc because there will be a time he'd not have the luxuries of time to himself anymore. Some months later, he got a job and we got discussing and he started sharing how busy he's got that he does not even have time for himself anymore due to the abundance of workload from his office. He may start to regret if he didn't actually enjoy those jobless days - the down moments. The tough days won't last forever, turn it into a happy experience for yourself and life will be more interesting for you to live in.
Life is sweet when you experience its different facets - the good, bad and ugly. You'd not be able to explain what it means to be happy if you have never been sad and you'd not be able to explain what it means to be sad if you have never been happy. Know this and know peace. Everything that happens in life all happen for a specific purpose, so when you are faced with difficult times, put your heads up and keep going.
