Life unfolds as it must. We cannot stop it, so we might as well enjoy it and make it count.
No matter who you are, your life is in the process of evolving. From the moment we are born until the moment we die, we are on a journey of development.
We learn different things at different stages, but we continue to learn throughout. It is a continual progression of growth and self-discovery. The journey and destinations along the way are up to you.
When you wake up in the morning, the day continues no matter what you do. It does not stop if you roll over and go back to sleep. At night when you slumber, the hours still tick by, and life continues.
When we understand this, we begin to realize that it is not about how much we have so much as it is about what we do with what we have.
There will be things out of your control. No matter how you wish they were different, you cannot change them. Why? Because life is unfolding differently for each of us. While you may influence or assist in someone else’s journey, you cannot walk it for them. Life unfolds as it must for each of us.
Everyone has their own journey and destination along the way. Some have more to learn than others and choose to do it the hardest way possible. That is their journey and their choice. No matter what you feel, you cannot change it.
Every day you are one day older. You can’t stop this process. Ask yourself at the end of each day if it was a day well spent. You can never reclaim a day in the past, only hold it in your memories.
Life is a continual opportunity to learn, grow in wisdom and share your talents with the world. It also is an everlasting pool of choices. To share or not to share, to love or not to love, to hold or let go, to stand down or stand up, to speak or remain silent, the list is never-ending.
You become who you are meant to be when you live with purpose and follow the path laid before you. You do it by making the right choices for yourself and others around you. There are many choices, many paths to choose from, but only one solely and truly yours.
The unfolding comes whether you walk your path or run away from it. Your life continues regardless of the choices you make until it is finished. It can be made easier or harder. That journey is solely yours and occurs based on decisions and actions made by you.
Others may influence our choices, but ultimately the choices we make are ours alone. When we are children, we are moulded by our parents, who assist in the early stages of life, but eventually, we move to a stage where it is solely our responsibility to choose which path we walk.
No matter where you are in your journey, you are always ‘here’ because it is always now. Life continues on, but you always remain in the now. You cannot rewind, nor can you fast forward. You can only live your life.
Live knowing you can, and remember that you can make changes and walk a different path if the one you are on is not working. When it is the right one, things will flow, and you will feel it.
Remember you can only control your own thoughts, decisions and actions and that for everyone, life unfolds as it must.
