Do you think your life is overwhelming, and spinning out of your control? That the fates are against you somehow? Well, you’re definitely not alone.
Not so Long ago I found my self in a place where the wheels of my life seemed totally out of my control. I was overwhelmed with just dealing with the endless little problems that arise in my daily life that I lost sight of my dreams, hopes and even happiness. I was like a robot; wake up, rush off to a job that didn’t bring me any joy or satisfaction, join the evening traffic, get home late and tired (most times too tired to enjoy a simple meal) and definitely too emotionally & psychologically drained to sustain any kind of relationship. And I still struggled to pay the bills!
It is really sad when we get so busy with life that we forget to live it. Life is beautiful and should be lived to the fullest! There’s so much more that we can get out of it if we choose. Of course it can be hard to see this sometimes when you’re struggling to make ends meet, but it’s no less true. I saw a quote once that read,
“Life is hard, and then you die”.
Just imagine that. Unacceptable! Of course life can be hard, really hard in fact. But that’s not all there is to life. There’s beauty and joy to be found in the seemingly insignificant little bits of daily life and you will be amazed how many things (former stressors) loose their importance once you focus on your happiness. Personally I have tried being miserable and that didn’t make me any happier, or more successful so now I choose to find what makes me happy and in that way my purpose.
So resolve right now to spread love and joy to those you encounter, and delight in the miracle of each new day. Let’s share a moment of peace & laughter with loved ones, and bask in the sunlight while we watch the birds soar in the sky. And in all these, let us try to imagine; what life would be like if we couldn’t do these things? Life is beautiful and should be lived to the fullest . . . without regrets. In every little way possible, I want to be able to live the best life I can and to take time to enjoy the little things, because those are the things that make life count.
