To truly accept who you are, is a gift that not many give to themselves.
Even on the deathbeds of many people, the person never accepted their lot in life – a lot that was most likely never pre-destined for them, but, one can never know what life will bring to them. That is why it is imperative that you make a choice, before it is too late, to not spend another day unhappy. You may be thinking, “You have no idea what my struggles are.” You are right, I do not know. But, what I do know, is that happiness is a choice – just as choosing to stay down for too long is a choice.
One of the saddest things, to me, is when a person lives their entire life and keeps living in their past, always looking in the rear view mirror. Wondering, “Why? Why me?” Please, if you are one of the people that is reading this and can see a reflection of yourself, please know that while life is hard – that is a given – we are all given a choice as well to see the better and to feel the better side of your struggle.
There is someone out there today, that is just at the start of their journey, a start that is probably similar to your start. Let nothing go in vain. Pay it forward. Inspire.
