Life isn’t always sunshine, rainbows and smiles. More often it can be unjust and unfair. A lot of people in general have this sense of entitlement. We all understand that good things happen with hard work, but at the same time we expect things to fall in our lap.
We expect things to just happen. We hear about guys, who are wildly rich at a young age, and we expect the same kind of thing to fall in our laps someday. We expect to be spontaneously treated with respect or given promotions. We expect our hard work to pay off quickly and without a hitch. We get delirious expecting all of these, and then are crushed when life isn’t perfect. That’s just life, it’s a part of what helps us grow up, and shapes the kind of person we’re going to be.
Life can deal blow after blow and isn’t always satisfied with just knocking one down. It will knock every one of us down, we’ll have times when everything feels hopeless and we even want to crawl into a corner and wave a white flag at life saying, seriously.. enough already.
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows – that’s the truth. It’s an amazing place filled with amazing people, and great opportunity – but never think that we don’t have to work for it. We have to stand up for ourselves, even if we are standing alone. Rid the people in life who have no place in future, shed the negativity and realize, that life can deal us blow after blow, but we can fight back. We get knocked down again and again, we get back up.
Above all in life we must be true to ourselves. If there is something in life we cannot put our hearts and souls into, then take it out completely. Accept everything. Life may knock us down, it may bloody our noses and break our hearts. But those can be slowly put back together, again and again till we get it right.
The journey of life each day, begins with a single step.
