Life is a series of what ifs and more questions. We are not meant to understand everything. What we’re meant to do is live. Just live…
Live your life the way you see fit. You can be a humanitarian who fights for human rights and who helps people in need. You can be an artist, always inside his own world; if outside, always looking for an inspiration; people, honestly, do not appeal to you that much. You can be someone of strong faith; you want to inspire people to believe to and love God and one another. You can be an atheist too who’s of good nature anyway; you help people without thinking that you’ll end up in heaven.
Anything. Basically, anything. We can be anything. And as long as we don’t hurt ourselves nor other people, I believe there’s nothing wrong with that. Let us not deprive ourselves of our passion, of that freedom to do our passion. Let’s give ourselves the serenity of being happy by living life as how we feel like living it.
Sadness, hopelessness, worries, fears… Oh! Who does not feel them? We all feel them. We feel them all. And that’s normal. It is normal to be sensitive sometimes and insensitive other times. It is normal to be grateful of the silliest, littlest things and then, ungrateful for the big ones. It is normal to be mad and be forgiving. It is normal to make mistakes, hurt others or yourself. It is perfectly normal to have so many emotions and even to get overwhelmed by these emotions. You got to snap back though; you got to take yourself back to the present. You got to release all your negative emotions and embrace the positive ones–those you need.
Don’t wish for a perfectly happy life for that kind of life has never existed. Wish for a strong heart, a brave mind, a great you who can get pass through all the obstacles in your life. Be a you who can wipe your tears after a good cry, a you who knows how to forgive yourself for every stupid things you’ve done, a you who is nice to everyone even if not everyone’s nice to you, a you who knows who s/he is, a you who loves her/himself, a you who appreciates what life is and everything in it.
Along the way, you’ll fall–whoever you are or however great you are. We’re all destined to fall. Not all of us knows how to stand back up though; know. Mold yourself into someone who’s ready to surpass a great fall. Be stronger than that fall.
And for those who can’t still stand up, now is the time to do it. Slowly but surely. Find a foundation that can help you stand on your feet. Find it now. And then hold onto it, grab it with all your might. Stand up. Stand up and then move forward. You can do it. Even if it seems impossible, so long as you’re breathing, you can.
Yes, so long as there’s life, we can… We can be what we want to become. We can be awesome. We can be great. We can be happy. We can love and be loved. We can… People, it’s time we live… really live.
