I haven’t seen it all but I’ve certainly been to hell and back on several occasions.
All over my life I have had to overcome obstacles, illnesses, backlashes. Being thrown down a loop. Facing my biggest fears. Trying and failing. And I’ve learned from all of them. I have come stronger at the other end. Probably still not enough, but stronger.
Because here’s the thing: you will never be strong enough. You will never know it all. You will always have to keep looking for happiness. Sadly (or luckily!) this is the way life works.
So here’s my advice: Learn from it. Take it all in. Make the most of the things that happen to you. Don’t be scared of rocking the boat and starting again. Cling onto the things you deem worthy. Tell people you love them if you do. Be grateful. Share the good things. And the bad ones too. Talk, talk and talk, get it all out. Put it in writing. Follow your dreams. Set realistic goals. Enjoy time away from your obligations. Relax. Do a thing that scares you every.single.day. And in the end just breathe. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe alive. Happy. Accomplished. Breathe I am here today and I have decided to be happy.
