No One Said It Was Easy....

No one knows what he can do till he tries.
I can be changed by what happens to me.
 I refuse to be reduced by it...

Many times in life we forget to see the bigger picture in front of us.  We focus on the little things and let them overwhelm us.  We forget that we have a great life.  We forget we are surrounded by loved ones who would do anything for us.  

We forget that we are healthy and that we wake up everyday to another chance for happiness.  We forget all the nice and good things around us and let a few little "problems" overpower us and then
life sure takes a turn we never expected.

Talking to a friend a few days ago and she was just telling me what a horrible life she has.  She said some people have all the luck why can't she ever be one of those.  I looked at her and was amazed.    Here was a woman who had everything going for her.  Yes, like all of us she also has a few issues, but who doesn't?  

No one has the perfect life and if you told me you did I would have serious doubts.  
I have learnt that life does not wait for anyone.  Today you are here tomorrow you never know.  There was a time I lived as if I had all the time in the world.  Well when tragedy strikes there is no going back, but at least I learnt that in order to keep on living you always have to move forward, you have to stop and focus on the good things and not only on what is wrong.  Many of us forget all the good around us and stay put in the same spot where only the negative seems to come through.

Right now we are dealing with Brutus and his issues again.  Breaks our heart, but we also know that in order for him to get better there will be some very bad days ahead.  So I cry every so
often, makes me feel better, but then I pick myself up and it's back to seeing what lays ahead and what we need to do.

What I am trying to say is that we all have problems.  Mine may not seem important to you or vice versa, but for the one facing it that's all that matters.  The important thing here is to not let your "problems" take a life of their own and take you down with it.  Always remember to focus on the good:)

Remember, what defines us is how well we rise after falling...

Life is full of ups and downs. The trick is to enjoy the ups and have courage during the downs.
If your life has no ups and downs, means you're dead....
