When I stop everything for a moment and take a good look around me, so much has changed. I would argue for the better. Of course in the moment that things are happening it sometimes doesn’t feel like a positive outcome, but everything happens for a reason. I know it sounds so cliche, but I’ve found this to be true. I think back on all the moments that I struggled with something I felt was so major, and see how everything eventually worked itself out. Not to say it didn’t take some effort from myself either, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I made it. I’m still here. Still standing. Still fighting for what I want. Hind sight is always 20/20, but once you gain perspective on different situations, apply the knowledge where it’s needed next. It’s almost like a glimps into the future, giving you somewhat of an advantage. Kind of like- I been there, done that, not tryna go back. I stopped killing myself with the shoulda, coulda, wouldas and started living for today. I ask myself, what can I do right now to help whatever situation I’m in and make the most of each passing day. It’s made me happier. I’ve applied this to every aspect of my life, from relationships to career goals. So far so good. I’ll keep you guys posted.
