King of Pain

This quote translates to:  “In life, I don’t know, you neither win, nor loose. In life you learn, you grow, you discover; you write, you erase, and you re-write; you sew, and you undo, and you sew again.”

So many times, we view our lives in the wrong way.  If we get fired from a job, we take it as a loss. We tell ourselves that we have failed.

If we get a divorce, we tell ourselves that we have failed. None of this is true. In life you must learn to ride your bike, even if you already know that you will fall. It doesn’t matter. We are not here to grandstand, but we are also not here to be the king/queen of pain.

To discover, learn, and grow, can be pleasant experiences. We must be full of gratitude, in order to attract more to be grateful for. That’s how it works. There is no other way. Experiences will teach us to be humble.

This humility will compel us to be grateful. Gratitude will always open to the door to more abundance. There is more to life than just working to pay the bills until we die.  What will we leave behind? Who’s life have we touched? How have we changed the world, and made it better?

Thinking that you are better than everyone else because of how much money you make, what car you drive, or what your zip code is, won’t fulfill your soul.

In the end, when we all die, we can’t take any of these things with us. What we take with us, will be our soul, nothing more. Will you be able to walk into the light? Will your soul be too heavy, and repel this light?

Being without this light, will turn you into the king of pain.
