I like being alone, sometimes.
The world feels massive with no one near.
The loudness intensifies in these quiet places.
The unfamiliarity remains abstract, yet I’m moving in rhythm.
I feel clicked in, but I’m clocked out.
I’m here, but I’m losing myself.
My thoughts are dusting off old memories, I welcome unforgotten feelings
Emotions tingle my skin, and although I shake myself, the tingle sinks deeper.
I’m finding an escape, and my route leads me to the wilderness.
A whole new world.
I am blessed to have this sweet life.
I must say though, I don’t define how great my life is by counting all the good things that have happened to me. I consider my life a great because I am blessed to have opportunities to gain wisdom, learn from my mistakes, and be able to find happiness in all situations. Just like everyone else, I have tried and I have failed at times, I have come to dead ends, and I have given up.
But, remaining positive through everything and believing it will be okay in the end are the most valuable things I have learned thus far. I learned these through hardships and finding my way out of the darkness. It wasn’t easy - but then again, when is it ever easy? Well, it’s easy to give up, it’s easy to say everything is impossible, and it’s easy to hide from our fears. It’s not easy to overcome, it’s not easy to want to challenge your fears, and it’s not easy to say it’ll be okay in the end. But it’s always worth a try. The attempt alone will make everything worth it, if you just give it a try.
If you remain positive, you will always see light in the darkest of tunnels.
If you believe it will be okay in the end, you will not give up.
If you give it a try, you will eventually make it to where you want to be.
And the beauty of life is that life is a beautiful struggle. If you forget this, it’ll be easy to be consumed by all the dangers, all the errors, all the mistakes in our lives. No one is perfect, and no one will ever be. But you’ve got your life, and whatever you make of it is up to you. Your life can be as sweet as you want it to be, or as bitter as you want it to be.
Now, it’s up to you to challenge yourself to overcome your everyday struggles and find the beauty from within. Make your life as adventurous as you want, as challenging as you want, as sweet as you want. It doesn’t matter what your circumstance is - I have failed college courses, I have faced many years of financial problems, I have grown up with family difficulties, I have burdens I still am carrying, I have felt numb - but I choose to see the beauty in all of it and remain positive. I choose to laugh, to smile, and to spread the undying happiness in me to others. Because I believe I can do it and I know others can, too. And whatever circumstance you are under, you can always make it a good one.
