“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
I have come to understand that sometimes we must experience the low points in life in order to learn lessons we would not learn any other way. Sometimes it takes losing things we have to finally grow and find ourselves.
I believe the beauty of life is, while we can not undo what as happened, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change ourselves.
If something has not happened for us, it does not mean it is never going to happen. It might mean that we are not ready for it now. We need to continue planning and working for it.
It has become apparent to me that being single allows me to take my time deciding on how I want my life to be and to understand what is really matters to me. Being single is better than being in a relationship with someone who fills my heart with doubt. I have learnt to become strong enough to live and enjoy life without being dependent.
The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and getting the most out of every day.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
