When Life Overwhelms
|Credits to the Owner of the Photo|
When I was young, I want to grow up fast, look for a job, do the things I like and live my life according to my plan. Then back to reality, I am now a grown up. I am working to pay my bills, mortgages, buy my needs and wants. Suddenly, it struck me. I want to go back in being a child! Yep, this is what I realize wanting to grow up is one of my misunderstood ideas. Yeah, when one become an adult, one has to face fears, live in this fast paced world with so much possibility into, be wary of all the decisions because it will be turning point of one’s life. I did not see that coming when I dream of becoming an adult.
My point is, let us not become a future minded person. Thinking too much of what we will become and forgetting that the result of the present is our future. Sounds vague, right? I am 23 turning 24. Life has been a rocky road experience. But I am thankful that I live my present somewhat correctly because if I did not, it would be a worst case scenario. Why? It is because if I did not study and do the things I like when I was younger, I will not become the person that I am. Then it will add more problems to me this present year. I don’t know what I am talking about but I want to point out when everything in your life is not going smoothly, you cannot point your fingers to other people but yourself. No one has to be blame but you; you are the master of the ship. Take the credit for the ups and downs. And as the master of the ship you cannot let it sink. The only way not to let it sink is to acknowledge the problem and give solutions to it.
Solutions may not come in handy, there is a remarkable time to be used in order for it to find out and execute. One has to have the courage to execute. Execution is the most difficult part. The inner conflict will arise but once done. You are new creation again. Stronger and better, but then past problems will go back when you thought you already get over it. Life is a cycle and there is no such thing as mastery for this subject but a lifelong learning process. Remember, when life overwhelms go through your own book what did you do to overcome the problem, develop another strategy and then Plan B or Plan C what is important is do not ever give up. To live a better life is a decision.
Till my next blog post!
Don’t just dream, make it happen.
