Moving Forward…..and Upward. :)

I came across this and since my mind has been a bit blank the last couple of days to come up with something of its own, I figured I should share what’s on / in someone else’s mind…

In an effort to discover who we are meant to be

We must all travel many paths

Some long, and some short
People join and tag along
While others only follow momentarily

In this changing world, it is difficult to know where the paths will take us
And yet we are compelled to follow each as far as it will go
Through pain and suffering
Hurt and hardship
We continue
Hoping for better days
Where living is effortless

Life isn’t about winning the race though
It’s about meeting people, making friends
Living, and loving, and losing
Sadly nothing in this life is permanent
And the people who believe it is are just deluding themselves
We must make the best of what and who we have in our lives
And never take these things for granted

Our friends and enemies make us the people we are today
And without them we would have nothing
We need their encouragement and discouragement
Help and hindrance, love and hatred
To continue along these paths

We cannot move forward without both wins and losses

These things make us stronger, more resistant

If life was easy it wouldn’t be worth living
The challenges make it interesting, they make us try
They make us fight for the things we love in order to keep them
But some of those things will never last
They fade into the darkness all too quickly
Into the depths of memory to be treasured or forgotten
Lost behind us on the path to be found by others
Hoping they will be treasured as we once treasured them

Memories change, feelings fade, and we are forced to let go of things we once held dear
We can’t let these things hold us back
Because if we never move forward we will never be happy
And happiness is the goal of all
If you are happy with where you are in life, enjoy it
It may last, or it may not

Just keep living, and learning and loving until the end. 🙂

“It might be stormy for a while, but it cannot rain forever. The sun comes out eventually.”

It eventually does get better. 🙂
