Life – The Continuous Journey

Ups and downs

Twist and turns

Endless roads and dead-ends

Life is a continuous journey defined by one experience after another. Not all these experiences are pleasant in fact some of them are downright unpleasant but here’s what we need to understand about those unpleasant experiences.  As much, if not more than, the pleasant the unpleasant has shaped us into who we are at this moment.  The key is how we treat those experiences.

Will we let it paralyze us with fear?

As children we feared the boogeyman but as we grew older we realized that there was no such thing as the boogeyman and there was nothing to fear. As adults we must grasp the concept there is no such thing as fear.  Fear is only a state of mind it is not real.  Many of us fear the unpleasant thought of failure, but failure is not something to fear. Failure is something to learn from, to grow from, to gain strength from. Failure can be our most powerful motivator if looked at through the proper lens

Will we let it scar us?

Yes, some experiences will scar us there is no denying that, we cannot escape that, we cannot pretend the experience did not occur. But we can embrace it. We can wear our scars proudly as a symbol of our rebirth, our survival. A sign that we fell but got back up and we are stronger for doing so.

It is only when we accept that all of our experiences are but stops in our continuous journey of growth that we will be able to unlock our minds and our hearts to our true potential.
