As human beings, we have a lot in common! We played in the yard with friends when we were young, we played hide and seek, we attended family gatherings or maybe we just slept with the lights on!
The adult journey is not different but is more complicated. As we are growing up, life is teaching us to become the person we need to become. Life throws so many mischiefs, sobs, despair and loss our way. We face all of that negativity with good deeds, laughter, hope and eventually success. We learn to become better and enjoy the process. We learn to accept a loss as a natural part of the journey so that maybe we can appreciate success in a better way. Our mighty weapon against all that? I think we should not take it seriously. There is always a catch to it, always another door. Our reactions to the loss or to the ambiguity decide whether we are doing a good job. If we decide to react by losing hope and giving up, we are actually going into a trap door. However, if we decide to react with lots of laughter and positive thinking, we will solve the problem. If the problem is not solved, we will at least be contempt. Then, only then, will we be going through the BACK DOOR of the problem instead of walking to the TRAP DOOR.
If you are dealing with a loss in your life, a huge health problem, or just some bad breath, learn how to roll with it and realize that it is all part of the journey. If you deal positively with it, leverage on the experience and learn from the mistakes, you will emerge stronger as so many successful people did before you. So sit back, relax, and appreciate those “anomalies” because they usually mean you are growing and thriving.
