Sometimes I regret the irreversible loss of life’s opportunities, but I didn’t do anything for years to use the door that opened a little and start living the way I wanted ( yes, there were a few years when I lived “not my” life).
Deep in my heart, I wanted to stop and look around: who I am and where I am. But I just continued to live teh life as used to.
But stopping in the 21st century is so out of fashion. If I had to answer the question, “What do you do now, what kind of project are you working on?” and would say: “Doing nothing. Standing shortly retreated from life, watching and waiting for an answer who I am” – to the interviewer would mean one thing – I’m dead, well, at least crazy one.
After all that I have experienced, I now know that the great meaning of life does not exist. The meaning of life is just to live. We have come to this world both to rejoice and to suffer. All these obstacles in the wheel of our lives are just tests, exams.
How we sustain them — whether we challenge them, overcome the darkness, and learn to smile again or allow ourselves to sink into despair and sadness — is what determines our future lives. Because of our response to troubles depends whether we open the Pandora’s box of destruction or enter the wheel of happiness.
Let us have no illusions. We all know that a monsieur life is not right; unfortunately, it is capricious and tosses us as it likes. It is our duty to overcome the darkness by our joy and hope.
