Breathe it in, everything around you, the smell of nature, the warmth of the sun, the coolness of the rain, breathe it in You’re going to worry about work, money, and material things but nothing will compare to how fast time will pass you by so, breathe it in The chaos you’ll encounter, the daily grind you endure, breathe it in Even when the monotony starts to set in, breathe it in All the wins and the losses breathe it in The time with your family and friends, breathe it in Every moment of your journey in life breathe it in Enjoy all the big moments, but truly relish the small ones because when all is said and done when you look back on your life you’ll realize they were all big things, so… just breathe it in
As you face obstacles in your life, go through them. Never go around them just because you are afraid. You’re cheating yourself. Going through the obstacles you encounter will help you to garner all the richness that your character has to offer.
We do things with a lack of judgement sometimes but when we learn from those, it can make an improvement in our lives. All we hope is that the mistakes leave a positive impression rather than a permanent scar.
Despite what a terrible year 2020 has been, I’m thankful that I got a chance to strengthen my relationships with my family and friends…even connect with long lost ones. It helped me to lean on them for support and I learned that regardless of what life throws at you or what obstacles arise, if we face it together…together we will persevere.
It’s been awhile since I stopped and took time to reflect on the things happening in my life. Since this COVID-19 chaos, everything has been up in the air and all my daily routines have been thrown out of whack. But my optimistic trait has me seeing a positive side to all of this. Having this pandemic happen has given me the opportunity to actually stop my life and take into account all the good things that are around me. I am fortunate to be a lot closer with my family, both in proximity and in relationships. I value life more, regardless of all the obstacles that are in my way. I’m appreciative of being able to stop and take notice of nature and how it continues to progress regardless of what goes on in my life. And most of all, I’m just happy to be here in this moment, knowing that I have had good memories despite all of the negative aspects associated with this virus. This will pass because there cannot be darkness without light. So I continue to have hope and treasure every breath I take.
When there is darkness and stagnation in front of you… go straight When life causes extreme hardships… go straight When trouble overwhelms you… go straight When your path becomes hazy and unclear… go straight When obstacles become too difficult to manage… go straight The course you take must never waver Always have faith and never falter Forge onwards to greater heights so that your dreams and goals may come to fruition and then and only then will everything turn out better If you just… go straight
Never give up even in the face of failure, make it happen You have the strength to persevere, despite all odds Your life is precious, and you have so much to contribute in this world “There is hope!” So breathe, take that first step, and always move forward.
