Life strikes us all. For some, it strikes them in the morning, while others in the early afternoon or evening. Sometimes you feel it coming down on you like a wave. Other times it comes silently through the cracks in the walls, and all of a sudden you find yourself curled up in a corner, feeling the heat moving fast to your face and an overwhelming depression rushing down your body, and all you can do is to sit and cry.
Sometimes it burns you until you can no longer endure. Other times, you wait patiently for a sound, a voice, a signal. But you hear nothing except the whooshing sound in your head. Life sometimes can be a nightmare, a wild outburst of profanity, it can sometimes shake you like an earthquake shaking the trees. But, when you take courage, you will find that life is wondrous and a blessing. You will also find that life teaches you to be strong, to be vigilant, and most of all to be courageous to stand up for yourself within yourself.
Life is not a journey that one can neglect. When it happens, the struggle comes strong, like a heavy blow that pushes you to the ground. It gives no choice but to make you sit in the rain holding your breath until your lungs give up. I must admit that it takes courage to live, to walk in the street and not to feel petrified by the unknown waiting to knock you down. However, you must continue to be strong. After all, it is the only thing you can do when life stops you.
You must swallow your pride. Take courage to stop fighting with yourself, and allow the wind of life shifts you. Do not panic when your world is shattered and find no one to give you a helping hand. There is nothing wrong to feel lost, because feeling lost is when the journey of finding yourself begins.
Take courage to live even if the sky is falling down on you. Hold onto your dreams and goals tightly underneath your fingernails and run with it. keep believing that someway and somehow the sun will shine on you and lift you up.
Keep being strong, it is the best you can do!
