It’s easy to see the hardships around you. Everyone seems to be broken in some sort of way – even for just a moment. Break ups, death, loss, trials. It’s hard not to think the world is a sea full of hate and emotional destruction. What we must remember is the world is also full of overcoming, beautiful realizations, and powerful love and it may take a little bit of eye opening to notice.
What takes a person from one point to another is a series of small and large decisions – decisions that may impact who you meet, how you feel, and what you do. These small and large decisions are what create our character – who we are. Character cannot be defined by being quiet. It’s only etched during those trials of suffering and absolute heartache.
The heart can endure much more than you imagine. I think it’s the fear that is truly painful. If you are going through a tough time in your life, whatever that may be, tell your heart that the fear of suffering is far worse than the actual suffering itself and no heart has ever suffered if it is in search of its dream.
Life and emotion is so meticulously complex and delicate that it’s hard to understand how we’ve evolved from microorganisms. It makes me so proud for humanity. If you have nothing to be grateful for, remember you have life.
