Sadness and loneliness; its a feeling or emotion that doesn’t leave you for too long.
Just when you feel like your getting yourself together and your moving forward, it comes back to say hello. It introduces itself into your life, as though it was never there. You begin to feel low..sad and dwell on your past. Wondering what if and what am I?
You are suddenly overwhelmed with emotions.
Did anyone say that being a survivor means youwouldn’t feel any type of pain?
Did anyone say it would be easy?
Yes, I said easy………..we want life to be a smooth highway with little or no obstacles and everything within our reach. But, in reality, that never happens. Because life is meant to be a journey, not a destination. Sometimes its your journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.
The moment you realise this, the more inclined you’ll be to moving forward and never settling for less. The more you learn, the more you increase your knowledge. The more you increase your knowledge the more open you will become. The more open you become the more power you will have!
I realised life was a journey when I was finishing college and moving onto university; a life event….one which was unexpected but made me realise that life is not a destination. I began to ask myself am I where I want to be? am I happy? have I achieved all my goals? and is my relationship with God good?
The answer to all of these questions was no.
So why is it that we must rush rush rush to a destination, which we may never reach or, may not exist.
Many of us ignore our blessings, we ignore the things which are important and have a significance in our lives, whilst in pursuit of the things you want to achieve.
What happens along the way is that the things we do have, become dust and begin to disappear just like the foam of the ocean. What was once there, is now no more. We lose relationships with our family, friends and colleagues. We lose interest in any activities once enjoyed all because we were so focused on a “final destination”.
It’s only time that you enjoy the journey, and smell the roses along the way along with observing the beautiful scenery.
If you haven’t already done so, then make sure you embark on your ship, because you have a beautiful journey ahead of you.
Stay beautiful and
be bold hide less.
