As a result of recent events in my life, I’ve been viewing the world in all sorts of new and different ways. Things have kind of been turned upside down for me and I would be lying if I said I had an easy time adjusting to everything. Life is full of good and bad surprises and some of them happen to us out of nowhere, while others happen because of the decisions we have made in life. Some can be fixed and others cannot. But, often times I found myself in that dark place asking myself why I’m doing this and why this had to happen to me. Then, I remembered something my grandmother always told me and that was, “No matter what you are going through, don’t worry. When you worry, it will only make things worse and there’s no sense in that.” And boy, did I worry. Of course, for those of us who stress quite often, that’s easier said than done. However, it is possible and the best thing about being human is knowing we have the capability to persevere through anything.
All these new surprises have led me to wonder whether or not I was really dreaming like I should be. And I don’t mean dreaming in the sense of sleeping and dreaming. I am talking about how we all have dreams about who we want to be in life. I had been so unsure these past few years but it seems that I had found, at the most unsuspected time, what I really wanted to be and that was a writer. I wanted a voice that could be heard but I didn’t just want to say anything. I wanted to say everything. And that’s what I’m doing, or trying to do anyway.
Basically, the point I’m trying to get to is that it doesn’t matter what is happening in your life. Move forward. Nothing can stop you if you are willing and determined. You have what it takes and once you believe that, you will start moving down the road of who you want to be. Life can be so hard, but with the patience and persistence you have within you, nothing is impossible. It took me awhile to get to that point and luckily I have amazing family and friends who have helped me along the way.
