”I love running. I’m not into marathons, but I am into avoiding problems at an accelerated rate.”
Accepting the truth is not always easy, There are times when it is easier to bury our heads in the sand, but I know from my own experience, things don’t go away that way.
Instead, try to practice being grateful for what is. Be grateful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and helped you learn and grow. It is about finding the strength to embrace life’s challenges and changes, to trust your intuition, to learn as you go, to realise that every experience has value, and to continue taking positive steps forward.
When we realise that not everything in life is meant to be modified or perfectly understood. Live, let go, learn what you can and try not waste energy worrying about the things you can not change. Focusing on what you can change. And if you can not change something that is upsetting you, change the way you think about it. Re-think your options and then re-frame what you do not like into a starting point for achieving something different in your life.
Life is a journey. Things change, people change, but you will always be you; stay true to yourself and refuse to sacrifice who you are for anyone or anything. Dare to be yourself, in this moment, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be. It is about realising that even on our weakest days, we get a little bit stronger, if we are willing to learn.
Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all our troubles and hard work is not only about what we achieve, but more importantly, who we become.
