Those days when moving on seems impossible are days that are temporary. As much as we wish that we could completely skip those bitter days, it just seems as if it’s in our human nature to be unable to shy away from it. The days in which you find yourself questioning where you are, where you’re going, what you want to pursue, or even who you are as a being are the days that I believe to be the most demanding and exhausting.
So if you are reading this and today is one of those days for you, I hope you remember that there are also going to be those days in which you fall in love with being alive. It might not be tomorrow, or even the next day. But one day you will find that you are able to cope with the situation that you are currently in and you are able to be okay with where you are at that exact moment in time.
So, yes. I hope there are days in which you fall in love with being alive. And I hope that you remember that being okay with not having what you want or not being where you had wished you would be is all a part of this beautiful journey. If things really went according to your plan, then it wouldn’t exactly be “life”. If things really went according to how we wished they would go, then we would find ourselves being stuck at a point in our lives in which no growth, no lessons, and no development would take place.
The hardships that we have been through have transformed us into who we are right now and they are going to continue to transform us into who we will eventually be.
So I hope there are days you fall in love with being alive. Fall in love with the weather and the company that surrounds you and your job and your flaws and embrace the hardships that have led you to that exact moment in time. Fall in love with spontaneous moments and new people and laughter and old friends who have ever had an impact in even the tiniest part of your life. Fall in love with icy roads and fireplaces and takeout dinners. Fall in love with sunrises and sunsets and packed places and cars beeping on the road, for all of this means that you are alive and well and you are at a spot in your life that you might not have wished for but you somehow ended up there anyway.
All of those seconds that pass by without being in love with even the simplest things are all seconds wasted.
