After much pain and many losses in my life, I have decided to pick myself up, brush myself off, and keep moving forward. Life is much too precious to live looking back. I will hold onto my memories, they are forever in my heart of course. But I will focus more on what is ahed instead what has happened. Like the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I absolutely believe that. Here goes my last Blog quote challenge. Learning to Live Again…
In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life…. It Goes On. ~Robert Frost
No matter what you are going through, or have gone through, the sun will continue to rise in the morning and set in the evening. Life goes on. It is very hard being in pain and hearing the birds sing, or even being around happy people. But we hopefully come out of our dark times a new person. A new normal. And with the realization that you did it. You survived to live another day. Take advantage of the fact that you survived and you are moving forward. It doesn’t mean the pain stays behind, it will continue to visit but we learn not to dwell in that place. When we love deeply we grieve deeply. Time is the ultimate healer.
2.You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. ~Bob Marley
Being in dark times, losing loved ones, depression, whatever life throws your way, is a struggle. Many of us have been there. It is during all of these hard times that you regain your strength, your courage and the will to live again. A much stronger person because of what has happened. As long as you take it a step at a time, or a day at a time, keep moving forward and you will eventually start to see the light again.
The trouble is you think you have time ~Buddha
This quote speaks volumes in only a few words. So many people, myself included, will put off doing things or visiting loved ones until one day it is too late. We think we have time. We will get to that later. Or save that for another day. Or I will call him/her tomorrow. Sometimes tomorrow never comes. Take it from me and do it today. Tell those you love how special they are. Visit your loved ones if possible. Call them often. Tell them you love them. Reach out to those in need. Whatever you can do so in the end you will not live with regret. The what if’s are very hard to live with and still keep me up at night from time to time. Do it today.
One last quote to leave you with… On the hardest days, just breathe. ~Tracey Way
