A little bit of this and that

Internal Monologue

28 June 2014
Life is a funny little thing. It takes some of the best of us and all of a sudden chews us up to a pulp and spits us back out without reason or cause.

I've never been a believer in the saying that 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger' - what doesn't kill you internally weakens you, not the opposite. It eats you up inside and when it's finished with you, sits back in the corner of your mind somewhere, ready to reappear at any point and dampen your spirits. I don't believe in trying to take strength from something that is draining you to the core; forcing yourself to put on a smile isn't strengthening you, it's only aiding the weakening cause.

Sometimes life is all too much and we all just need to take a step back and reenergise - take some time to smell the flowers. It's much easier said than done, I know; life is unpredictable in that way.

Life is all about strength of character, not luck or fate; it's the moments that challenge us the most, where life in itself seems almost unbearable that our true strength of character is displayed. Watching somebody close to you go through such challenges, as I am currently, is a roller coaster in itself.

Life is unpredictable - sometimes it makes us so happy we could dance, other times it makes us cry for a little while, and sometimes it tries to bring us down to the point that we shut ourselves away from the world. We like to tell ourselves that life is in our control, that it sits in the palm of our hands but the reality is that so many things are out of our control that we just have to sit back and hope that our strength in character is enough to keep us away from the blow and it's aftermath. Sometimes it's not, but that's ok - we just find a way to get ourselves back on our feet again. In the end, we're all the same; like dandelions in a breeze, just floating along, waiting to see where life takes us.

Until next time,
