Life is a trip, isn’t it? It plays by its rules, whether you like it or not. You might think you can do it your way, but at the end of the day, you just never know when you’re going to have the next challenge thrown at you. We don’t get to choose the obstacles we face, but we do get to choose what we’re going to do about them.
I’ve had a lot of ups and downs and made a lot of booboos in my life, and at the end of the day, I can smile about every one of them. They made me into the person I am today, and I’m pretty proud of that. It took a while for me to truly accept myself and my mistakes, but you know what, we’re good. I know we all can be hard on ourselves, and we should be, but at a certain point we have to let ourselves be human, and live life.
We are imperfect beings in an imperfect world, of course there’s going to be some growing pains along the way. It’s a part of the process. Give yourself a break, there’s no need to put more pressure on yourself than life already does. Take a deep breath, or a few, and be present in the moment. Everything is going to be okay, we just have to keep on going.
I’ve made my mistakes, but my mistakes have never been what's made me who I am. I’m going to keep on keeping on, and I choose to do it with a smile on my face. After all, every passing moment is a miracle when I let it be.
