“To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson –
I have come to understand in a profound way things don’t always go my way, I have only two choices in dealing with any obstacle I encounter. I can focus on the fact that things didn’t go how I wanted and let life pass me by, I can make the best out of the situation and know that these are only temporary setbacks and explore the lesson I need to learn.
Time stops for no one, this year has showed me this in a deep and personal way, if I allow myself to focus on the negative I might miss out on some really amazing things that life has to offer. We can never go back to the past, what we can do is take the lessons that we have learned and the experiences that we have gained from it and move on. It is because of the heartaches, as well as the hardships, we grow become stronger, become in the end better persons.
