If we do not love ourselves, our life becomes a struggle, filled with negativity and depression. We come to prolonged phases where we are trying to be someone we are not and not rooting ourselves to being human.
Phases where we feel as though everything in this world is connected to you, everything is just about you and how helplessly you find yourself at a stance of getting out of life’s ‘quicksand.’
So there is less room for gestures like kindness, contentment, experiencing the true joy of living as all your efforts, mentally and physically are drawn towards getting you out of the ‘Quicksand.’ – Survivals demand.
Contrary, if you love yourself, you make you happy, you stay true to yourself, you feel good about life and there are good chances that you send good vibes to others too. You bring light to yourself and come to terms with so much beauty that there is to experience, so many good things we can focus on, so much positivism we could follow, we insight ourselves to the true victory of living.
Obstacles, difficulties and struggles are inevitable endavours you will face in life. They will always be there and that is because, as humans, such be the traits that factor our growth.
It would be of great essence to endorse yourself into a prepared mentality where you are ready to face them, at all times, at all times.
And even upon failing to overcome one or two, to not let them distract you from your destiny.
There is always something to be learned when you face adversity. Every loss you face will lead you to finding a better self and greater achievements. Stay strong and true to yourself.
Each one of us has something to be joyful about, the problem that destroys the feeling of being filled with joy is comparison – when we begin to compare our lives to others and not look at what we have been currently given.
It is of high significance in the aspect of discovering joy that we do not look past our gifts and blessings but rather appreciate them and figure out ways on how we can multiply them.
Happiness-Joy starts from within, it is a decision one has to make on how they are going to perceive things in their life.
In as much as success may bring as happiness, let us not forget to smile all the way while we strive towards what we desire. Happiness can also be realized one step at a time, one decision at a time, one goal at a time.
Imagine this, you somehow find yourself stuck in an island, by yourself, on your own. In the midst of all the stress and chaos in your mind on what you should do, hunger takes a toll on you. You ought to survive and so you see a coconut tree.
You do not know how to climb a tree, and so after countless struggle and immense pressure, you finally get to the top and get yourself coconuts. Once reaching down, you realize you do not have a knife, to peel and to cut the coconut. A simple thing, a knife, you do not have one. And so you look around, search for hours, for an object you could make sharper and turn it into a knife.
After more hours of searching and eventually sharpening, you
find and make one and you are then able to peel, cut the coconut so you could
get its precious drink.
Today, right here right now, a knife is a few seconds away from you if not minutes. Yet we use it every day in our lives like it is merely a thing to be cherished, well, maybe it sounds funny to think of it as so, but if you learn how to appreciate these little things in life, you may just realize how precious your life is already, be gratified and find happiness.
And It is being grateful or in a state of gratitude that ‘informs’ the universe that you know what you desire already exists but beyond and above that, you are very much grateful for what you have first and so it puts you in the right frequency to get your humble self into receiving more.
I once stumbled upon images and videos of the Victims from ‘Syrian War once upon a time in my life. Those images and videos have been imprinted deep in my heart. I wish there was something I could do more than just giving my fair share of donation to the oppressed. I wish I could do more than just that, put an end to the war and make things so much more happier than ever before for those little kids.
No child deserves to go through pain at such an early age, no child. It is total injustice to allow such a thing to happen irregardless of the issue concerned. So I started letting that pain consume me and I thought about how some of us believe Heaven to be a real ultimate destination at the end of our lives to compensate for all the pain and suffering we had to go through and perhaps some of us do not believe on the existence of such a place.
However, the scenery that we depict from the talks of Heaven are undeniably beautiful. It seems as though life is all about happiness, joy, sunshine and rainbows over there. I now think of saying that ‘I wish we could create little heavens for all the children and everyone else that surround us in our lives on this very Earth before affirmation of anything else,’ but I wont.
Because to wish for something is a desire that we feel we have no control over, but to want to do something is a full intent course action which we have absolute total control over.
And in this case, all we have to do is want to make it happen, and we will. We possess the ability to make someone smile today, anyone around our lives, we have absolute total control over making someone else’s little world turn into heaven, even it be just for a moment. If each one of us, and I mean, each one of us, parents with their kids, friends upon friends, teachers and their student and so on, went out on a venture, a day out or a weekend, with the intent of wanting to make someones little world happier than they found it, I believe firmly, the world would be heading in the right direction with such practices made regular.
Maybe you can not change the entire World, but you can definitely change someones else little world, and that is all each one of us has to do, just that, for a start, then let us see where it takes us. Whilst reflecting on the news about war at different parts of the Globe and therefore in the mix of all these random thoughts, the following got penned down and sent out through Humanity Lives On.
