This life is a mystery. You may never truly understand it. No matter how much you try, you may never be able to predict everything that will happen every day you wake up. You can only live your life, hoping that only the best will happen.
However, some people appear so lucky and surrounded by several opportunities, while others keep having negativity thrown their way. And it’s so easy to give up when nothing seems to work. It’s easy to resign to fate and accept a mediocre life because you can’t see the way forward.
In your mind, you have done the best that you could; at least, you went to school, you had good grades, you applied for this job, that one, or the other, but yet, you are stuck with the worst possible source of income; or you have been married for several years, and yet no baby; or that relationship which used to be beautiful has suddenly turned sour; or you suddenly lost everything you have worked hard for all your life, and nothing seems to work anymore; and to you it’s over, there is no more hope.
But my friend, there is always hope, and you have to look out for it in every situation. As long you are alive and breathing, your life can get better. All it takes is a positive attitude, and positive energy. Life might be uncertain, but the laws of life never change. You are going to reap what you sow. Keep working hard, keep trying, keep loving, and one day your bounty harvest will begin.
Remember, there is always a silver lining in every cloud. There is always a star in the darkest nights.
