Being sad with the right people is better than being happy with the wrong ones.
“If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.”
Being positive does not mean ignoring the negative. Being positive means overcoming the negative.
Life is always full of surprises. There are events in our life whether good or bad at some point it just happens. Some things happen as how we planned and expected. When this happen we feel very happy and contented. Feels like the world is in favor with us. But when things turn the other way around we did not expected, it feels like the world itself gave up on us. It feels like we’re the most wanted person in the world asking what have I done to be in a situation like this.
Am I being punished for something?
Is this how my story will end?
Think that you’re like the picture above. You’re like a newly hatched baby turtle, unsure of what might happen next. There’s that option to stay in your place and get eaten by a bird or move forward and crawl out to the edge of the shore for freedom. Running back is pointless. Giving up is inevitable. Just when you’re about to surrender. You realized something. You may have come in this world unprepared and surprised but you have already been born and destined to swim and move forward the very moment you hatched from your shell. Like a soldier, you just have to stand and continue what you’re bound to do — to fight.
When you believe that you’re going to fail, you will eventually fail. But if you believe in yourself that you can, then there’s no doubt that you will succeed. Take it from the wisdom of Budhha, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” Though in some cases when the situation is so complicated some of us just can’t stand being positive. We find it boring as we always want immediate results. As how we find eating a fine cake, it takes time to bake that finest as well as good things in life also needs time. That no matter how positive we think about things, sometimes it seems to get even worst! Thinking positive doesn’t mean ignoring things that are less likely to happen rather it is about seeing things in a new perspective by going through every unpleasant situations in a more positive way — always thinking that the best is coming.
We all have that hardships in life that always comes in our life surprisingly. We’re just starting to enjoy all the pleasures then here it goes again, new difficulties to face. We should believe that things do not happen by some random chance. It always comes with a purpose. Whatever is this purpose, it may not be clearly visible to us until the right time we’re ready enough.
Lastly. It’s not how prepared you are in a fight but it is how you’re going to handle every circumstances of the situation.
God never ends anything on a negative. God always end on a positive. – Edwin Louis Cole
“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much”
– Jim Rohn
When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.
– Lolly Daskal
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all”
– Dale Carnegie
Just because we fail it doesn’t mean it’s the end of our everything. Failures will always be a part of our life. It’s a necessary pause that often comes in our life to teach us something profitable for our future journey. It makes us strong if you let yourself learn from it and see the purpose within that downside.
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep on moving”

I got to the point where I feel so down for almost a year. Unexpected happenings came in without a single notice. It happened so fast that I almost didn’t noticed that I’m already on my knees, starting to give up.
I shut everything. I closed doors. I stopped listening to anybody. At that moment, me is the only world I know.
“It is really hard to be in a situation you are not prepared”
I still talk to people but that old me who used to be fun and jolly seems to fade away. I missed being myself but it feels like the world,the universe where I live is so unfair.
“I asked God why let these things happen?”
I waited for His reply. Minutes turned to hours. Hours into day. Days into weeks until it’s been months and I’m still hopeless, living the meanest days of my life. Indeed, pain is getting deeper each passing days. I simply can’t understand why these things need to happen.
Just one day I woke up. Feels like everything has change. Something is different. Someone in my mind urges me that something has to change for the better. It wasn’t easy for me. But I suddenly realized so many things …
- Life always reminds us that there are always something to be thankful for — our family, our friends, the blessing of waking up every morning and many more.
- That no matter how bad our day is, it’s just a bad day and not a bad life. As sometimes life could be tricky, it closes doors for us to move forward but not to shut us down rather to begin a new journey and to open for new possibilities.
- Everything is temporary. Wound heals same as with our pains. But be reminded that pain will forever be a part of our life not to bring us down but to teach us something. As they quote that everything always happens for a reason, pain always comes with a purpose.
- Move on from the past but remember all the things it taught you.
Lastly. God is truly in control though it’s kinda hard to imagine why God allows painful things to happen we should be faithful and believe that He has plans and He will never give us challenges we can’t handle. Remember challenges in life always comes in our life when we are strongest.
One quote that inspires me:
“If things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place”
