No one ever said life was supposed to be easy, life is supposed to be though, that´s how we know we are alive.
Life is a book, all the ups and downs that life get us through are the chapters of our book they´re all stories about the challenges we´ve been through and how we overcame each, an interesting and meaningful life is achieved by taking all challenges and overcoming them in the best way possible to get the best results.
Going through each chapter of our book is the way to learn and once that chapter comes to an end, once that story ends it may not have a happy ending. We’d all love that all chapters of our book have happy endings but if this were the case we´ll never learn anything new.
Our book needs all types of chapters, from the ones with happy endings to the sad ones, from the ones full of joy and smiles to the ones full of failures and mistakes. We love and enjoy the happy endings, the chapters full of smiles and those amazing moments create more smiles and joy every time we remember them, the failures and mistakes help us learn from them, they will stay in our memories so that we avoid going through those mistakes again, the sad ones help us keep important moments in mind.
How many times have we start a new chapter in our lives and when the journey gets though we give up? How many dreams or goals had we stop pursuing just to avoid the failures and sad endings? We need those chapters in our lives to learn, to grow, we need those lessons to become the person we need to be to achieve our dreams and goals.
Life will brings us down time and time again only so that we can get up stronger and wiser, if we let one failure stop us we will never achieve anything worth having and all chapters of our book will be the same, it gets boring and the book will end asking what if…? What if I had tried one more time? What if I hadn´t given up?
Every new challenge in our life is a new chapter of our book, at the beginning we don´t know what to expect about it but fear can make us give up half the way while excitement can keep us going. Through the journey we´ll go through ups and downs, through pain, loss, struggle, pleasure until it comes to an end and when that end arrives we need to accept the ending of it whether it´s good or bad and learn to move forward. Being grateful for living that experience is really helpful to move on whether it was good or bad, in most cases how we see and how we react is more impactful than the challenge itself so if we take it as an experience we are so grateful to have as part of our life we´ll see a lot more of the positive.
We need to understand that everything is changing and not a single story, challenge or chapter of our life will last forever this is why some people say or recommend that you don´t get involve or attached emotionally so that it´s easier to let go and move on once that chapter is done.
Through life we meet people that will be part of different chapters of our life but there´ll be others that come and go, not everyone we meet will stay for the rest of our lives, realizing that everyone we meet is for a reason and in the moment we need the most and when they go that means we don´t need them anymore, we learnt from them what was necessary, for the ones that stay it means that we still have challenges to face together.
If we take every challenge in our life or every new chapter of our book with excitement at the end of it we´ll keep the memories and lessons from every moment we experienced and the people who was part of it, it doesn´t matter the ending we´re living.
Do not be afraid to start a new chapter today, live your life in the most exciting way possible, learn from mistakes and failures, learn to move on and continue writing the next chapter.
