TODAY I LEARNED: Wealthy Europeans in the 1500s and 1600s ate parts of corpses, believing them to have medicinal properties.
You have to be honest with yourself. I feel like that’s the only real way to get anywhere in life. You must be honest about who you are and what it is you want out of life. That’s much easier said than done, I know, but it doesn’t make it any less true. If finding our path was easy, we wouldn’t have much of a life. Everything would be mundane and boring. We wouldn’t grow or develop into the people we were meant to be without the troubles and trials that come our way during the process.
We fight on and ask ourselves why we even keep trying. Some days are good and others are bad. But today is a reminder that anything really is possible. With enough determination, you can get it done. Sometimes it takes a week long depression to get you into the mood of living; sometimes it takes a month. Every now and then it takes a shit-load of anxiety to really push you over the edge and get you moving. That being said, “never too late”, is something that’s always going to be true. That’s just how it is. I don’t know about anyone else, but confronting the parts of your life you don’t want to is a bitch.
I’m trying to bring those pushed back emotions and thoughts to the surface. It’s a slow process, but it’s currently in motion. Now all that’s left is time. Time doesn’t always heal things completely…but it’s a start and we all have to start somewhere. Remember to cherish what you have.
