“Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.” ~ Roy T. Bennett
Nothing is impossible. The struggles and trials you are trying to overcome in life might be hard, but they certainly are not impossible to get through.
Each new day presents its own set of challenges. No two days will be the same. You have to wake up each day, decisive and determined to be cheerful and happy, with the mindset and faith that you can overcome whatever challenges life might present to you. It does not matter what situation you might find yourself in – day by day – your attitude of faith, and how you approach life are the determining factors of how your life will turn out in the end.
Take the caterpillar as an example. The caterpillar can fly, but not as a caterpillar – only as a butterfly. As a caterpillar, it has the potential to be something special, but it must go through a process (metamorphosis) first, before it is transformed into a butterfly with the ability to fly. Like the butterfly, you too will have to go through a period of transformation, so GOD can move you from crawling in the sand, to soaring like a butterfly. However, one thing is for sure, you cannot change or go through transformation and become a better you, without going through the process. Life is a journey. You might want to reach the destination immediately and enjoy the end result, but if that were to happen, you would have little appreciation of it, because it will not bring the joy you seek. Remember, “no pain no gain.” Change is necessary. Only when you are tested and tried in fire… can you shine like pure gold.
Your life is precious! Be proud of it. It may not be perfect, but you are still alive with a chance to make it as close to perfect as you hope for it to be. Detach yourself from yesterday’s disappointments. Be positive and have faith. Live on… while you are still alive.
