In times of uncertainty, in times of challenges, in times of doubt, I always try to keep in mind that I AM LUCKY.
I am lucky with the life I have. I am lucky to be healthy. I am lucky to have a wonderful daughter. I am lucky to be able to feed myself. I am lucky with the parents I have, I am lucky with the siblings I have, I am lucky with the best friends I have, I am lucky to be able to write here and share my passion and thoughts with the world.
Indeed, my life has not always been easy. From a financial perspective, nothing to complain about. Still, from an emotional perspective, I have gone through my share of hurdles. I have had my share of brutal pain. I have gone through some difficult steps and for those who deeply know me, they tend to remind me that I am strong. They tend to remind me that I need to appreciate myself more as many would have been broken if faced to the same trials, and often I have been asked the question “how do you manage to go all through this?”.
To this apparently difficult question, I have finally found a credible answer for myself: I love my life. I truly love my life and thank God for it. Indeed, I learn everyday, I grow a better person (I hope) and I realize plainly that this would never have been possible if everything had gone smooth and steady. The strength was not given, it was built. The hurdles and the pain forced me to look deep inside me to find the strength in all times to move on and to keep pushing.
I therefore realized, as human beings, we all have the choice. It is a common saying that you should face difficulties as opportunities so this for most of you, should be no discovery. Rather, I can confirm to you that it indeed works. I have the strong conviction that everything happens for a purpose and after the times of pain and sadness, always come happiness and smile.
Therefore I love my life, and I stick to keep loving it despite all the challenges. I love my life and I stick to taking the best of it every single day. I love my life and if it had to be suddenly stopped, I would go without any regret. Loving my life, against all odds, that is my strength to face and overcome difficulties.
Love your life folks, never give up on it, fight, push and without any doubt (I believe), you will end up with an accomplished life.
