The problems we face in life can be devastating at the time. They can rip out our heart and leave us floundering in a fog that can last for days, if not longer. But often when we look back we notice the bigger picture, or the lessons we learned and have a positive feeling about something that, at the time, was very traumatic for us as an individual. I know, I have faced many demons in my life, and my life has taken many twists and turns that I didn’t understand at the time.
So even though I cannot prevent things coming into my life that change my direction, I have learned to accept them, at least I try to anyway. Because I realize that every bump in the road is not a full stop in a sentence. It is not an exclamation mark that screams for my entire life to freeze. Because life goes on, and that’s a fact. So I now see these bumps in the road, more as commas in a sentence. A pause to stop and reflect, before continuing on with my journey. I also know that after these commas in my life, I can write the rest of the sentence. I can use what happened before and create a better ending to that part of my life. It is my story, I am the author of which I am writing a classic and I am already writing the next chapter.
