I have come to accept that life indeed is a great mystery and there are countlless things my limited human mind cannot easily comprehend. So I have learned to ask “Why” much lesser than i used to. I have learned to accept and appreciate more whatever comes my way. Sometimes, I tell myself to be careful for life is a big tease, full of sinful delights and life is like a bubble, too…hold on to something tight and it bursts.
Yet, living life to the fullest means taking risks, no matter what. Hence, as long as I know my limits, I go ahead but not without discerning whether something is truly right or wrong. It is confusing at times and it is difficult to avoid making mistakes but this is a challenge, a test of the strength of my character. It is also a test of my faith.
I’ve also learned to continue to hope, despite everything, but to expect less from life in general, from the people around me and from those i come across every day. I’ve learned to be happy with just anything, even little simple things. Like a butterfly, the more we chase happiness, the more it eludes us; so I just take life as it is and make the most of it. I believe that the less we expect, the greater our happiness will be. So i continue to just hope, for isn’t life full of surprises?
Finally, I try to see the good side in everything because life is a grace from God and He meant us to be truly happy!
