“I told you that I loved sunsets but I hate endings.
But you told me that sunsets are not necessary endings
but is for the rise of the moon which is another beautiful start.”
I know in life, we tend to experience negative emotions.
Although we cannot stop things from happening and mostly changes are inevitable, the best gift we can give to ourselves is to turn our fears, our losses, our sadness to courage.
Always remember that life goes on and every moment we spent living in sadness, we lost another precious moment to be happy.
So turn your negative emotions to courage.
Show the bad things that have happened in your life that you are able to overcome this and perseverance will definitely bring you even further in life.
Show the people who have hurt you, that is okay for them to hurt you because they have taught you a precious lesson in life. Learn to forgive and forget.
And most importantly, show to yourself that you are a great person. You are definitely stronger than you think you are.
So always remember,
There are still so many wonderful things awaiting for you in the future.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Today, I was randomly flipping this book that I have gotten from my friends this year birthday and I ended at a page that got me like “OMG, is this quote!”
I remembered how I used to like this quote.
“It is not length of life, but depth of life.”
And there you can see, at the background of the picture, there is a similar quote.
These quotes are those I actually picked out probably 1 to 2 years back and pasted on my board to act as a reminder to me.
We often forget how to lead our life more simple. It can be really simple or complicated and up even till today, I still sincerely believed that the way we choose to live, will affect how we live. If we choose to live it happily, we can.
Now, I’m doing my best to live my life with life everyday, doing something we love and finding happiness in whatever we are doing.
Probably few months back, I unintentionally overlapped these quotes with some other papers that the quotes actually got covered up.
And as days goes by, I eventually forgot about it.
Today when I saw it, realisation kind of hit upon me and I felt really thankful that I actually saw these quotes once again.
Sometimes when our life gets too stressful with things we have to worry about or even get upset about,
We tend to forget these small little reminders are actually crucial keys in our lives.
I’m a person who actually dwell on little things and sometimes, I take a pretty long time to get over things.
I’m aware and I know I needed reminders time to time.
It is pretty much of a bad habit but I’ve been trying hard to change myself throughout all these years.
Well, reflections eventually do make a person an even better person right?
I saw this quote while reading the quotes today by Denis Waitley ,”I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet.”
It hit upon me that we should not keep on thinking that our life isn’t perfect.
We have many things that many other people don’t.
And because we are human, we are never satisfied and we kept wanting for more.
But to think about it, how many things in life, have we took for granted?
This is worth a thought for you and me, isn’t it?
Many people know that I love to write and in their cards or messages for me, they wrote a common message, “Continue writing and continue inspiring.”
I can’t be more thankful to receive these messages and know that I have made a difference in people’s lives.
At least a positive one.
I know sometimes when we speak, when we give advices, some people might think that everything is easy because we are not you.
You might even feel that talk is cheap and we can say as much as we want but we don’t feel how you feel.
Everyone is embarked on a different journey in life and thus, we will obtain different experiences so never judge a person.
You never knew what he or she is going through.
But I just wanted to say that, we can empathise but if you want a change in your life, the only person that holds the key is you.
We can write posts and share our experiences but we cannot change your life unless you do it your own.
So why wait?
Be the change for yourself today.
I still remember some of the hard times that I have gone through back then and I could say that this quote was my saviour.
Everyday, I tell myself that tomorrow will be better.
Yes, today might be a really bad day but we have to keep in mind that tomorrow will definitely be
better. If is necessary, cry it out but never lose your faith. Things might not go as we wish
everyday and it may even be worst than today. But…
give it time because things will get better eventually.
Look around you to see you are not only left with one option.
