The Roller Coaster of LIfe
Life is a constant roller coaster. There are it's ups, and it's down, and times where everything around you goes loopty loop. There are unexpected drops, sharp turns, and times that gives you butterflies. At the end though, it's all worth it. It doesn't matter that you were scared when you first got on, or that you spent half the time screaming, when it's all said and done it was literally the ride of your life, every single scream, tear, drop of sweat...it was all worth it, it was all a part of what made your life, yours.
Many times we feel as if life is so unfair, we tend to focus on the bad, on the " why me" situations, but what would happen if we didn't? Who would we become if we simply focused on the good, lived life with no regrets, and forgave those who have wronged us. That's a topic that's been a big part of my thought process lately, forgiveness. We can't enjoy the view ahead of us, if we're too busy worry about the scenery behind us. God gave us a beautiful world, filled with beautiful people. Yes, people now a days are acting very dumb, they don't always act the way they should, well actually they don't most of the times, but in their own weird way they're beautiful( at least that's how God sees them, so it's how we should see them too) . I have this theory;we are capable of loving anyone. If you think about it it's true.If we just put some time and effort into just listening to someone's story, their fears, struggles, victories, before long you'll start to truly, unconditionally love them.
I don't know what brought this on. Maybe it's the self reflection that I've undergone lately, or the need I see in people to simply be listened to and loved, but we are very powerful. We have the power to to give someone super human strength , or to tear them to shreds. Never underestimate the impact you can have in someone's life. There is great power in your words, and even greater power in your actions. Enjoy your roller coaster, and when the opportunity presents itself to help other people enjoy their own ride, take it, it'll make your ride just that much more worth it.
