From the smallest thing in the world (such as accidentally dropping your pencil and having to pick it up) or to more serious, cruel subjects (getting your legs chopped off, people you know dying) your life continues.
It may hurt. Sometimes more than ever, or maybe just a little pang at your chest which’ll then fail to exist. But here’s the thing: your life will go on. You will have to tolerate it. So, instead of letting that moment of weakness ruin more of you.
People get sick; they grieve, endure, hurt, envy and everything else negative in an unwritten book. And if you happen to be a person who’s already died, then may you rest in peace.
The rest of the world, however, have to come to the awful realisation that life goes on. That you can’t rewind the remote control. What’s done is done.
It’s up to you to make your life work. You don’t have to be happy –if you’ve been through a lot of things, it’s unlikely you’ll ever be the same– but at least give life another shot, and find some mild sort of contentment with what you have.
Donate to others, join charity events, feel good about yourself. Life is long when you’re at your worst. But at the same time, it’s a unusual kind of treasure, one which has both sorrow and joy. One which, if you don’t seize with the strength of all your fingers, may slip away from your grasp.
Which brings me to another quote:
I’ve had my share of cliche “life is like” quotes, but I loved this one. It instantly made me think of anybody involved in The Arts. Musicians, if they haven’t experienced sadness, can never quite connect with their audience with depressing music.
And they all make music. All the keys of the piano. They are the keys that you hold, the ones that relate to who you are. Those keys make up your personality, your strengths and flaws, and your overall reaction to life.
Those two quotes up there, I live along with. It’s so much easier to think positively, to think there’s good in every bad, than hold the depressing alternative of life being out to destroy you.
