These past few years I’ve learned many things about myself and my environment. The most important lesson I’ve learn so far is that sometimes we have no control over certain situtations and we just have to accept it. It sounds simple enough, but it can get deeper because this affects us in many ways. We often plan things to go a certain way or want to do things accordingly. Unfortunately, we can not control the weather or how other people act and accidents can and will happen. Shit happens! Many some of us strive for perfection and sometimes life surprises us with spontaneous adjustments and changes everything you had hoped for. You can be mad, yell, fight, talk shit–whatever. Or you can be optimistic and just deal with what life gave you. In this moment, I am so grateful to be alive and have support from family and friends who love me. Not everyone has that. Some families barely have food or shelter. This is what important, not materialistic shit. So now my mission is to have a positive outlook on everything and try to spread the positive energy. I want us to teach each other to love ourselves again because only until then can we love someone else. That’s where the acceptance and good attitude starts.
