Life is an interesting thing, wouldn’t you say?
We are born and we live. And with society the way it is, there are many ups and downs. We go through trials and tribulations. We are tested and have to adapt or make major decisions.
But in a nutshell, life ain’t so bad.
Every person is different. Some have it much harder than others. If you live in different areas of the world, it could be very difficult. If you are homeless or battling mental illness, there’s no telling the world you are in and how it is.
But for the bulk of us, it ain’t so bad.
There was a time when I thought I had it really bad. I battled unemployment for two and a half years. But I dealt and was lucky enough to have unemployment benefits for most of it. I had family and friends who were important in getting me through things. And I landed on my feet and I am in a pretty good place now.
I’d argue I was a better person for going through what I did.
During that time, I always tried to understand that some people had it way worse than I did. I also think I’m more cognizant to the needs of others. I can’t say I’m always on top of things, but I try to give back as much as I can now that I feel I can.
So life isn’t bad.
When you have modern technologies and can pay your bills and get by in life, you are doing OK. Sure, some make way more money than others (I know I’d like to make more and feel safer financially), but if we are doing our best and getting by, that’s at least something.
I’m sure we all have dreams and things we’d rather do or be in life. Alas, life isn’t easy. It throws you tests and situations you must get through.
But we deal.
Just like all of us, I have dreams and plans and hopes. I know places I want to be and want to see. I have goals I want to reach and do certain things to find a happier place in life.
It’s never easy.
As noted before, life isn’t easy.
But overall, it’s hard to complain when you look at the big picture. Life’s good. Now just try and smile and enjoy your trail. There’s always something to look forward to, one way or another.
