Do you remember wishing for something or someone so much that there is that dull ache in your heart that you can't seem to quench? And as the days go by, your wish still unfulfilled, you are filled with anticipation and a growing frustration while you wonder what it would take to make it happen. Will that dream ever come true?
Then you grow a little older, still wishing, still hoping. Everyday frustration is growing into anger and cynicism. It's eating your soul and it's robbing you of smiles and happy moments. All of a sudden you are transformed into this new person, cynical, hopeless, clueless, doubtful and distrustful.
You start to stay away from friends who are always happy, always smiling, always looking at the bright side of life. Unknowingly, you have turned off the light inside your soul. You have welcomed the darkness like an old friend. You are grouchy, angry and lonely.
But have you forgotten? “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” Wanting to be happy is great but wanting to be out of this misery is a giant leap! The irony is that there is no one else in this world who can make you trully happy but yourself.
We only have one life and it is our one-off chance to thank God by living this gift to the best that we can.
It's time to start over, if you're already considering trying it, then you've already taken that leap of faith. It is time to rise and shine my friends! Somebody loves you.
