Sometimes when I’m down, I remind myself of a couple things:
Personally – People. Opportunities. Epiphanies.. We really don’t know what’s around the corner, or what will become of these things…
You could be alone one day, feeling grey. The next, you meet someone who awakens the best of you and you start down a new scenic path in your life.
You could be on a walk, and have a life-changing epiphany out of nowhere. Maybe doors aren’t open yet for a reason. Or there are doors you had no idea were waiting for you!
Perhaps you’ve lost someone, or another part of yourself (eg. career) It feels like the sun wont ever shine as bright again.
Please realize, you’re not alone. Others living in this world have gone through the same loss and pain. Grieve, cry, talk to loved ones, do what you need to, but please don’t give up on surviving. If you lost a person, they’d want you to grieve, and learn to enjoy life again.
If you lost a job, or another part of you.. there could be freedom in this situation, rather than a loss. Think about that. Where is the freedom? Can you lead your own career? Alter your lost career into something new? Or find brand new purpose/enjoyment/passion? Keep a look-out for that freedom.
Worldwide – oh boy! Huh? This world just seems nuts these days.
What if.. a generation (already here, or not) some day just says “Enough!” “What’s with the stupidity?” “Why do you want things this way?” and changes the future? That is my hope. A big shift from bright-eyed, healthy-minded, warm-hearted, energetic youngsters! Although if I wish it.. others out there must too. Those youngsters will have us as well (while we do what we can now)
