In my old age I’ve learned that life never gets easier – we simply grow stronger. The adage, ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’, resounds throughout my being with every breath I take. For if I’ve grown personally, it’s stronger! I no longer live life looking far into the future, I now live my life day-by-day. I take-in EVERY moment as if it could be the last. I’ve learned that life isn’t fair to anyone despite I’m unsure where any of us thought it would be in the first place since I know we were warned as children. I’ve learned by experience that many friends come and go like the ebb of a tide. Each has their own reason; each carries their own lesson and it’s up to me to decipher since regardless how long they’re in your life they leave a mark upon your soul; tis one you cannot erase, no matter how much effort you apply. Also, I’m trying very hard to forgive since forgetting is impossible despite I’m learning it’s unnecessary to try to forget for when it’s accompanied with forgiveness the wound is no longer worth remembering in the first place.
Remember, no matter what life throws at you, you CAN overcome it! You attract what you emit so try and remind yourself that bad times are reminders as to how great good times are. Embrace them equally and LEARN from them, as I have!
Hoping this finds you, my readers, in a ‘good place’, safe, warm, and enjoying YOU!
