Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba
“The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.” - Bible, Psalms 16:5-6
An avid reader of this blog will have noticed by now that I try not to hang on to negatives. Sure life throws it's punches, buh I like to try to disregard them. You see I have a principle, "It doesn't really matter what life throws at you, what matters is how you react to it."
Based on that, reacting to this prompt becomes very difficult.
Truth is, your weak points don't really mean much. If you refuse to concentrate on them and cry about them, Your brain automatically believes that you have no use for those weak points and therefore, you tend to concentrate more on other things (your strong points).
When a door shuts in life, something almost always opens up, either a window or another door, but we pay so much rapt attention to the closed door that more often than not, we do not even notice that something else has been opened up.
Life of course isn't a bed of roses, it sure as hell isn't a bed of thorns either. It's not totally over for you until you believe it is.
'It's just my lot in life', that is surely a statement of resignation, of pity, of capitulation.
I don't capitulate, EVER. I keep moving, it don't matter the stone thrown at me. I just keep moving, I never stop. And I'd do the same if I were you.
When life gives you lemons, make some lemonade bro, and drink up. I'm pretty sure you're thirsty.
Life is better enjoyed than endured. Believe me, I know. I've done both, and I know which is better. So go ahead and enjoy it, make this the last time you use the statements: "what can I do? It's just my lot"
Whatever you do, do not EVER capitulate.
Till next time,, Keep dreaming!!
