The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place… and it doesn´t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain’t about how hard you hit… It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward… how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That´s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain´t what you wanna be because of somebody. Cowards do that and that ain´t you! You´re better than that, you can make your life a result of yourself.
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly endures. Life is really simple.. But we insist on making it complicated. If you actually think about it, most of us try to fill ourself with vulnerability, excuses, fear, fault-expectations, etc.. Can we just stay with this moment?
Living life as it is, is pretty simple. When it rains look for a rainbow.. When it’s dark look for stars. The beauty of life doesn’t only depend on how happy you are.. but also on how happy others are because of you. Spending today complaining about yesterday doesn’t make tomorrow any better. The hardest part is to wake up in the morning and remembering what you were trying to forget last night. Everyone wants happiness. No one wants pain. But you can’t have a rainbow without a rain.
Like my friend says, “Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself and know that everything in life has a purpose. There are no mistakes or coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from….”
If you have to, learn it the hard way. Most of the times, these are the most important lessons we actually learn. In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
