When Times Get Hard


We’ve all had bad times in our life, times when we faced obstacles, we thought were too hard to overcome. This week has probably been one of the worst weeks in my life. I guess it was because a lost someone so close to me, who I never thought would go that easy. However, this week has also taught me a lot of things. Like, to never give up on loved ones, never take advantage of the time you have with loved ones, cherish every moment with your loved ones, and live like there is no tomorrow (well to an extent) because you are never promised tomorrow. I guess this is quite a sad entry, that I am writing today, however a lot of people need to understand that life, like mountains, has jagged parts, that we’re all inevitably going to pass by, you just have to keep going…because the view is great.

Live Life In Happiness

Lets face it, not all people are happy in their lives! Why? Because of factors slowing them down like bills, insecurities, and many other problems in their lives that they are constantly worrying about. I used to be living this way, obviously bills weren’t slowing me down because I’m living with my parents, however one of the major factors in my life that were slowing me down were things like school, grades, and insecurities.

If for example, I was to get a low grade, I would constantly worry about it, and ask my teacher repeatedly how I can improve it, not realizing that if I carry on worrying, I’m totally missing living in the moment and by worrying, i’m not actually making things better, but making them worse, for myself. A lot of things in my life have changed, after realizing that happiness was the way! Negativeness just went out the door for me when I started changing my thoughts and feelings on things.┬áSurprisingly┬ánext time I got a low grade, I accepted it, and worked towards getting a better grade, and…. TADA my grades went up.

Most religions would agree that happiness starts from within. If you’re not happy with your self and if you don’t accept yourself, as you are, then you can never lead a happy life. Oscar Wilde once said, “Be yourself, everyone else it taken” and I couldn’t of agreed any more. This quote simply means, you have to accept yourself because if you spend life worrying about being the “prettiest” or being “perfect” then you will NOT find satisfaction.

So I hope from today, you change your thoughts and feelings towards yourself, and watch your life change in a blink of an eye. “Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder”
