Treasures in life

There are times in life we look back and get surprised by the emotion that engulfs us. Planning out a short term future does not work out as well as a long term plan may work. That which you may seek most at your time of need may prove to be more destructive than you perceive. In every calculated action comes a possible misguided notion that is blinded if one thinks with their heart and not the mind. Life has never seemed simple yet in all honesty, we complicate it ourselves.

We always know what is good for us, yet we do the complete opposite hoping for a different result. The fit of disappointment we have to deal with when the obvious outcome prevails is usually more bruising than that which is unforeseeable. Picking ourselves up from a first time failure is easier than whe you try to overcome a repeat of the same. Why? Because then one has to let go of two things; a habit and the aftermath of failure.

Sadly, our emotional state is also affected because we cannot control what the heart chooses to love. Fortunately, we can choose whom and what we give our heart to. The common saying that love is blind is a mere fault of choice. Just because you love a man, does not mean he has the right to practise domestic violence. If he claims to value you, he willl learn to correct other than instill fear in you. Other times, time brings about incompatibility. The worst thing one can do is blame theselves for the mistakes of another.

In the past two weeks, I learnt two things.
One should not belame themselves for the mistakes of others. Just because someone was not content with what you gave them, does not mean you did anything wrong.
Be with people who make you feel it is okay to be imperfect.

Life is too short to be unhappy, but we all have a fair share of ups and downs. Without them we would not be who we are today. We may not be able to choose when things can go right or wrong, but we can choose who we want to share those moments with. These people tell us that truth we do not want, but need to hear. They pull us up when we fall and help us think when emotions blind us. Appreciate these people every once in a while as they make memorable momentos of life.

Cheers to you if you've made me smile. I appreciate you for being there.
