Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 42’s Topic: Moving forward.
For this whole month, I have been feeling like I have so much momentum going in my favor.
I got a job, I got out of my mental and emotional slump, I got focused and now I feel like I am moving genuinely forward in this game called life.
What a wonderful feeling!
It’s quite remarkable how I was basically beating myself up for two whole months, just thinking I was completely worthless as a person who deserved all the rotten luck my way. However, fortunately, destiny gave me another shot.
My progress in life stopped to a screeching halt, but now I got the wheels in motion again, even if it’s considered “slow” by society’s standards. This doesn’t get to me anymore, at least when it would break me apart upstairs, because as long as I am not regressing … it’s all good, right?
Let’s just say I was so ready to push the panic button at one point. I could have bailed out on living in this new town at any moment, but I held on. I was frightened. I perceived myself as trapped in the perpetual corner with no option to turn to, but I feel great now. Absolutely great.
I am so thankful I didn’t concede with myself when the going got so tough.
Basically, the tone of this blog post is to keep on racing. Never stop. Never think about trying to veer off-course and just throw in the towel. If you do that, you lose. It’s game over. Finished. Whatever what you want to call it. It’s done like dinner.
This game called life doesn’t care if you think the track is too hard. It’s gonna throw every obstacle your way, in any shape or form, at any point in time.
That’s all part of the program. Life doesn’t go easy on you by default. So you either learn to play the game or you suffer defeat. I have had to learn these lessons the hard way over and over until the pain stung so hard I never wanted to feel weak to it … ever again!
So find strength. I know life gets you down. I know it pushes you around and doesn’t ease up when you are feeling overwhelmed. I have experienced these feelings so many times throughout the past five years. At times, it nearly destroyed me, but I clung to whatever bit of dignity I had left to keep going.
Keep running. Keep running toward your hopes and dreams. Keep running toward something that will make you truly happy with your existence.
I know I have a ways to go before I finish this race, but I know it’s all worth it to cross the finish line, finally I have to add, as a winner. A winner at life.
Who wouldn’t want that?
