Life is full of ups and downs for all of us involved in the living industry. Many of us find ourselves taking note of the smiling couple walking hand in hand through the shopping centers and the parks on a sunny day. That successful CEO type speeding by you in the downtown city streets in their convertible European sports coupe. We look on and we say to ourselves “Boy do they have it made. Why can’t that be me?”
We’re very quick to judge the book by the cover. I myself have sat on the corner beside the man in the tattered clothes and I’ve partied in the high-rise penthouse with the CEO’s. One thing I’ve noticed in my adventures is that there is always something, at least one thing that everyone would like to change in their life if they had a chance.
Surely some aren’t as obvious as others. The man in the Ferrari perhaps suffers from a lack of true love. Sure he has had many women companions but because of his wealth he has issue trusting that they truly love him and not just his money. Maybe he is insecure about a lacking in penile girth?
The sophisticated lady in the Mercedes who is always dressed to the tens who you watch as she enters her high end condo down the hall, what we don’t see is after she locks the door behind her she rushes to the bathroom vanity to check a suspicious growth on her breast that she has been monitoring for weeks and weeps at what she knows to be the truth.
And the happy couple holding hands in the park. Are they happy to be together or are they smiling from the sun shining on their face as they fantasize about the things they used to do before they became attached to the other hand.
Whether it be lack of financial wealth, love, health, drug addiction, abusive relationships or general insecurities we all have something, we have only become very good at disguising it over time.
“Don’t sweat the small stuff.” That was a phrase I would repeat to myself whenever I encountered something irritating in life and it does have some truth. There will always be small stuff and we should learn to look past it. But what’s small and what’s big? Where is the line? What matters to us in life?
This blog is about life, our lives and our stories. I myself have taken many wrong turns in my life but I went back to the point where the road split and I changed routes. It’s not an easy thing to do, there are always challenges. Most of us will sit back and blame society but some of us will find enlightenment in the fact that only we can change our lives and yes we can change, all of us.
This is the introduction to my blog and I will share my story piece by piece over time. I invite all my readers to tell their stories. I want to hear positive stories of victory against our own personal demons. Share our victories and advice with the ones who desire to make a change in their own lives. Help each other find peace and happiness in life because in the end that is all that matters.
