“The past can hurt. But, you can either run from it or, learn from it”
There are times when, we try to run from our past or at least think we could. Everything seems to have come to a stand still. In certain moments when everything seems to go wrong maybe due to our actions or even others, we desperately seek a way out, but couldn't find one. We wish and pray we could change what has happened, but deep inside we know that we can't. When it's finally over, we seek a change in atmosphere, maybe, a new start.
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”
Once I had a wish to life a perfect life. The question was “What should I do to have a perfect life that I wish for?” If I know that, maybe I would have all the happiness in the world, from that moment on in life. But, what experience and knowledge could I possibly gain from that moment on in life? The only experience I could think of was learning to spell the right words and let genie do its work. It felt boring and then again I ended up with more questions than answers. I had a question then, “Can life, ever, be perfect?” with the very definition of 'Perfect' being different for each of us because of our unique perceptions.
“Nobody has a perfect life. Everybody has their own problems. Some people just know how to deal with it in a perfect way.”
I have heard people say “Change is the only thing that doesn't change”, which is quite intriguing. I wanted change, within me and surrounding me. It was not who I was that held me back, but who I thought I wasn't. I had to go through certain moments before I could realize that and change can only be possible when we realize what we experienced and learn from it. We only perfect things by experience and when we are done, we move on in pursuit of new challenges. Success but more importantly failures in our past, have given us the knowledge and understanding of the world that we live in. It's quite true that failures bring out one's true nature and potential.
“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often”
Life is how we see it and what we make of it. We cannot run from our past, because it is what makes us who we are now. In bad times, we could let things happen its way, while we just watch or we could just sit and worry all day long, but we're not going to see anything change. Just when it seems to be the end of the world for the caterpillar, the world sees the butterfly. Leave it all behind, rise up, make a choice, move on and act upon that choice. There is no life as complete as the one that is lived by choice. Life, has taught me many things for the better. Life has given me all the patience, knowledge and strength that I hold now and one of the best being the idea of, keep moving forward. All it takes is a bit of courage and hope, that, the best is yet to come!!!
