Over the last few weeks I’ve personally experienced a flood of emotional changes. At times I was at the top of my game, other times it seamed as if everything around me was descending at an unbearable pace. Only to return back to a state of control and confidence…
The interesting thing about facing life’s darkest moments and most challenging experiences, is that once you make it out of the woods (even if it’s only a temporary meadow) you gain a better prospective each time.
It is vitally important for all of us to keep our eyes on the path ahead of us! Yes there are looming challenges or obligations that we cannot deny. However do not let them consume you! Continue pushing forward, always know the dark wooded forest will eventually open up to a beautiful meadow full of life. If you ever doubt this, simply look at the physical world we live on, Earth! The oceans eventually lead to land, the desert eventually turns into lush green grass, which eventually leads to a mountain top.
The cycle then repeats; water flows down a small streams, then into a roaring river, and eventually back to the ocean. Right? This is physically impossible to deny.
Your life is no different. Emotionally you will travel the swells of stormy seas, enjoy the lush meadows, travel through barren desert heat, experience the dark forest, and of course reach the highest peaks of success. And yes, you will then continue this cycle forever.
Life is about growth and experiences. As someone once told me; You are either living or dying, there’s no pause button and there’s no rewind. The cycle of life only stops at death.
I know it seams obvious when you read it, however sometimes we lose sight during those dark gloomy periods of life. So use these analogies to help you refocus and keep moving forward; regardless of what monsters are pulling you backward. This unrelenting forward movement will (nature has no choice) eventually lead you to a new peek in life.
Enjoy the ride, understand and respect the natural process.
Live a strong genuine, fun life, by Loving, Laughing and Living Life at Full Throttle!
