How To Take The Bad In With The Good.

Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve—because if you do…eventually you will bleed to death.

Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up again so that you can be where you were intended to be all along. It always seems like the good doesn’t last very long because sometimes shortly after the good ends up hurting you…but some things do last forever. A good song, a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold when you’re hurting.

You can’t change fate. It is inevitable. Things happen; good, bad, and indifferent. You just have to hope they turn out. It’s like falling…you’re mid air, you know it’s going to hurt but there isn’t enough time to stop yourself…so you just close your eyes and hope for the best. And I can guarantee you that the world will give you the best every once in a while. The bell will ring and you go to the corner where someone will dab mercy on your beat up life. Pain is only temporary but the things we do in life: actions we do, words we say, and connections we make…they last forever and change our lives in ways we are not yet aware of.

Life is tricky like that. Of everything it robs us of…it grants us something too. Sometimes it’s a new friend. Sometimes it’s a better understanding of ourselves, and sometimes it’s just a perfect day. There will be that moment, when you’ve figured out how much you’ve really let go. How much you’ve grown, and it takes you back and makes you think; it makes you realize that you can’t look back anymore. It is when you realize that you need to live your life for you and no one else.

All you need to do is keep your fingers crossed in hopes of someday catching that happiness that you’ve tried so hard to find all this time. That’s the one thing about happiness. It’s fleeing. Think back to when you were a child and you trying to catch a firefly. No matter how many times you smacked your hands together and swore you had it—all to find out you didn’t, you never gave up. Then you finally caught it…put it in your jar, and that firefly lit up your room, lit up your life so-to-speak…because you worked so hard for it.

Make every moment just like that. Make every moment add light to your life because you worked endlessly on it.
