Life is an eventful journey, isn’t it?
There are moments that test our patience and drain us emotionally. Moments, when we lose our love, and also find it, all over again. And moments that have us doubting our capabilities. And, it’s from these moments that we realise we learn so much!
I was watching a movie during lunch today, where a line spoken by an actor resonated with me.
“Bad things will happen. That’s not negotiable. But, what matters is how you deal with those bad things”
I have always been a timid person by nature. My anxiety hits the roof when things start going awry. But, I know that it’s from the things that go wrong, and plans that do not take off that there emerges something a lot more precious and beautiful. Something we may never have anticipated. Something a lot better than what we had wished for.
Sharing today, a few lessons we are bound to learn in our life, sometime; lessons that, actually, are only given to make us a better version of ourselves.
LESSONS FROM LIFE:
1 Not everyone you meet will walk alongside you through your journey. Some will leave you midway, and some you will meet when you least expected. But, none of them will be with you forever. From every soul that you meet, you will take away something precious; something that will stay with you for as long as you live. Something that will make for beautiful memories to reminisce on a dull, rainy day! But, the bottom line is ‘You are on your own, so learn to enjoy your company!’
2 You may lose someone you love. But, always keep the doorway to your heart wide open. The love you lost will find its way back some time soon. All you need to do is have faith in the Universe. It really listens. You know?
3 Most of the plans you make will not come to fruition. Be grateful they don’t, for you know not what you would have had to face! Always be ready with a Plan B. And, have faith in the Universe! And, patience. Lots of patience. Oh, and also be ready to chuck Plan B out, into the sea!
4 Be thankful for the difficulties you face. If you are being tested, you are being perfected. It’s something I have come to believe in. Maybe we go through all the tough times that we do just so that we emerge out of it stronger, wiser. I am sure that when you look back at what you were and compare it to what you are, you will be happier and prouder of your present selves. Try it!
5 Your thoughts have a magnetic power that attract the vibes you send out into the Universe. So, as difficult as it may feel, dump all the negativity in the trash bin and be positive! As cliched as it may sound, it’s a fact. Don’t you agree?
I had been going through an all time low for quite some time now, despite being in a better space than I was earlier. The feelings of worthlessness had really left me with no hope, and worse, no respect for myself.
But, it’s in the past few days that I realised something. If I was to consider life as a race and compare myself with all those around me, I would only find myself in a position much lower than the others. Or, a position higher, which again isn’t the truth.
Life is not a race. Every individual here comes from a background that’s as diverse as there are individuals around us. Living life according to where we come from, based on our strengths, and fighting our weaknesses to reach the goals we set for ourselves is what truly makes sense.
Well, what do you think?
What are the lessons you learned from Life, so far?
Lots of love,
