Life is a confusing, day to day journey that has its share of ups and downs. We often sit and reflect on our lives — sometimes with so much happiness we fear sharing it and other times we feel such sadness we try to figure out a way to get through the night. Each of us is fighting our own daily battle. Step aside during your busy day to remember why we have this life and how not all the small stuff matters in the scheme of our lives. Embrace love, empathize with others and feel God’s presence as you tackle each new day as a fresh start.
Life changes within a split second. How often do we sit down after a long day and remember how easy yesterday was? A day could be going along as usual and then you find yourself somewhere you didn’t plan on that morning. Life is so unpredictable. Sometimes just watching a show for 10 seconds can bring back moments of extreme sadness that we put out of our minds.
So how do we attack this journey every single day? Does it get easier with every blow? Not easier just more bearable. When you endure pain in your life through losing your parents or some dear friends, an important friendship is lost or just some career disappointments, each time we endure these hardships we add to our strength and endurance.
Sometimes we have a habit of comparing ourselves to others but we must always remember that everyone had their own journey with their own bumps, their own happiness and their own sadness. We are not alone. Opening up to each other helps us get through those days. A hug goes a long way whether you are giving it or getting it in return. When we give love, no matter what pain we are going through, we will find love and peace in our own lives, in our “own journey”. Let’s open up to each other and not walk on the path alone, but rather alongside the people who matter and make our lives whole. Make the journey worthwhile and live each day to the fullest….
