I am always amazed in public places with warning “no waiting, no loitering and no parking”. To me, this is to summary of life. Life is checkerboard and the enemy opposite you is time. This enemy does not understand delay or pause. If you delay to move, the enemy will wipe out your men before you realize it.
So I urge you don’t wait, don’t park, don’t stop and don’t loiter. When life hits you hard, you fall, you stumble and tremble but don’t be afraid to get back up – to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again.
Never let one temporary setback result in worse and permanent one. Don’t let a hard lesson harden your heart. It’s not worth. Learn the lesson for you may need it on your way up to greatness. Life’s best lessons are often learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes.
There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. But that’s ok! And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. You might even feel like quitting. That too is ok!
Remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best.
Yes, life is tough, but you are tougher. Remember Robert Schuler book “Tough Times Never Last but Tough People Do? Cry if you must. After crying, wipe the tears. You may get bruises but remember that scars make stars. Separate yourself if it helps but find the strength to laugh every day. Find the courage to feel different, yet beautiful. Find it in your heart to make others smile too. Don’t stress over things you can’t change, it’s not the best thing to do either. Live simply. Love generously. Speak truthfully. Work diligently. Ignore naysayers and even if you fall short, keep going.
