The truth is that it doesn’t matter what you believe in, because some things will always be out of your control. Living cautiously has nothing to do with the things that happen to you. Or at least that’s how I chose to see life a long time ago.
And I do my best not to regret stuff. Or feel sorry for myself. It doesn’t work all the time.
Because you can’t control the outcome of everything you do in this life. And, besides, you never know where the road might take you.
You know… blaming the world for what happens bad to you, blaming others, regretting stuff, feeling sorry for what you no longer have. Feeling sorry for yourself. That’s just the worst way of living. You’re not exactly fighting, you’re not taking matters into your own hands. You just ask, “What have I done wrong? Why me?”
And it’s funny because, whether you want to or not, life goes on. The world doesn’t stop spinning because you’re hurt, because you feel lost or confused, or because you want to fix what’s broken. No, sir. Life goes on.
But sometimes it goes down, doesn’t it?
Sometimes bad stuff happens. Sometimes we do bad. Sometimes we fail, we hurt people… it happens. Sometimes people leave.
And at the same time life goes on… and you can go really down before you even figure out what’s going on. It just tends to move forward while you’re trying to fix something that can never be broken.
We all have dreams and ambitions. We all want to do something great. We all plan our futures. But the thing is that our destinies are molded in our day to day lives. And it’s incredibly difficult, almost impossible, to do be aware of what’s taking place around you every minute of every day.
In the way we react to the most common of issues rests our true character.
And you have to force life to go up. To take you closer to your dreams.
