I woke up this morning feeling drained after a lack of sleep due to a coughing spell in the night. When the alarm went off I had negative thoughts and was feeling rather sorry for myself. Only when I faced myself in the mirror I thought to myself that only I can make a difference. I started by feeling grateful for the fact that I could breath, have sight, could hear the sound of birds greeting the new dawn. I started singing and humming and by the time I left home I felt ready to challenge the new day. It wasn’t long after hitting the high way when I was faced with reckless drivers and before long I was experiencing anger. I suddenly stopped myself and thought can anyone hear you from your car?
I started laughing at myself for being so foolish. I have realised today that we must not let this world make us bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry, to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong.
We must remember that we are human. We break, make mistakes. So, don’t let pain and sadness ruin your life. Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Think. Focus. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run.
It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learn from it.
