I just read a blog that made me think... many times people ask if I am willing to die for what I believe in, I would like to think that I could say yes but I wonder... I certainly want to live for what I believe in. I am not afraid of death, I don't think that death is the end, I know there is better even after this. Honestly though I love my life, I love the opportunity I have been given to be on this earth and to figure out my purpose.
I feel like I was blessed to have the opportunities that I have had, I was talking with a friend tonight and I told her that I feel like I have learned so much in the past few months about how I have dealt with challenges in the past and how I am now dealing with them. In the past I have dealt with challenges or changes by being depressed, wondering why me? Really??? Why not me? Challenges help me to grow, they help all of us to grow. When I start to feel even for a moment that my life is too difficult, I am reminded that many people have had it much harder than me.
There is no one on this earth who has not had difficult and challenging times, it really is all about how we deal with them. I know that a story I have read and heard about for years about if we threw all of our problems in a pile with everyone else's, we would be quick to grab our own back. We only think other people have it easier, we really are only given the challenges we can handle in this life. If we don't deal with it right, that is when we need to remember to have courage and strength the most.
The world is not against us, it doesn't hate us, it isn't trying to hurt us. Unfortunately there are people that have these feelings towards us, that doesn't mean all people are like that, we need to ignore these people's feelings towards us and just love them from a far. They are only afraid and they don't know any other way than this to deal with their lives. That is sad, really sad... I actually feel bad for them but I just love them from a far and move on.
I just want to do what's right, I ponder this often... I want to be uplifting to people in my life, I want to touch people's hearts and show them that even though I have had devastating things happen to me, I am still here and I am stronger because of them. These life changing events have actually helped me to become the person that I am now, the girl who does not think to judge another person, for if I do... I automatically stop myself and question as to why I think I have the right.
