Life is not fair. Life is a gamble. Life is this. Life is that. But for me, life is not what you have always planned it to be. Let’s face it, nothing is definite in this word but change. Change for the better. Or change for the worse.
What to do with life that is so unpredictable? Be flexible. Learn. Accept. Move on.
Be flexible. Adapt. That is how plants and animals survive the wild. Aside from their natural instincts on how to defend themselves from the threat of their surroundings, they know how to adapt. Don’t be a hard-headed jerk who wouldn’t want to listen to suggestions, corrections and negative comments. Remember, you are just the same as all of us, not perfect. You should know when to live your life in ‘maybe’ and in ‘trial and error.’
Learn. Every mistake is a lesson learned; charged to experience and should be remembered before making a decision. Everything that we know now has been passed around through generations of people by the people who have learned from every mistake that they have made. Don’t let those hard-earned lessons go to waste.
Accept. Admit to yourself that you are vulnerable, that you are afraid of something, that you are willing to do everything just to survive. They say that courage is not the absence of fear, but doing that thing that you are afraid of anyway despite the fear. Acceptance is the key to your happiness. Never rely your happiness and satisfaction in your life to other people. Start within yourself. If you cannot accept what and who you are, who would?
Move on. Failed? Rejected? Broken-hearted? Then cry your heart out, rant, be angry, shout. Then wipe your tears, lick your wounds, compose yourself and move on. Life is too short to be lived in negativity and hatred. Never allow anyone to make you feel inferior. Hold your head up high and tell yourself, I am important. I am strong. I am bullet proof. (Not literally bullet proof, just to be clear.)
Now, go and live your life. 😉
