Living is risking. Too many battles that need to be fought, wounds that cause pains and it has to be healed. But these are not permanently happening. Life is full of surprises, like a wheel, it has to roll, must go on. We can’t tell what will happen next, life has no sneak peek. We can plan our lives, shape and design whatever we want in the future, but we can’t preview what will be the results. We must gather armors for survival, these armors must take discipline, ‘coz these armors come from within.
I’ve read these phrases once somewhere, but it remains in my mind and in my heart; “If you want to pick roses, afraid not its thorns” and “If you want to get pearls, fear no more to dive the deepest part of seas.” These phrases made me realized that in getting what you aim is not easy, you have to face all your fears. Success in life designed not to grab as easy as what we think, it designed to make us people tough.
Failure is very inevitable. We made wrong decisions sometimes, so that we know how to listen from others, to be humble and not to brag. It’s not bad to be proud of ourselves, just don’t be prideful. Sometimes we have to ask others, hear their opinions, try to be attentive to what we’re doing. We need others, wings need wind to blow so it can soar higher up in the sky, a boat needs paddles and sails to guide and propel it forward. Like my Mama and Papa always say “Aina you need these things, you have to listen what we’re trying to explain to you”, i hated it every time my mother and my father had to nag me, i misinterpreted it as discouragements, criticisms, because i thought they only saw my mistakes and never mind what i did right as my best. I always thought it as failures. I failed to be a good daughter, but surprisingly, i heard from others that my parents are proud of me, i’ve realized that they just want to correct me. I was too crazy to hear their appreciations, i didn’t realize that it was too much to ask those things. It’s enough that other people know how we truly are amazing, enough that people hear it. I just say that we’ll be succeeded if we are open to others’ help, and remain humble.
But even sometimes we failed to have what we aimed but at least we did try, in contrast to those who failed to try. Life must go on, we can take failures as other armor to go on, ‘coz failures teach lessons, it only designed as a learning part of our life, so that we can be succeeded, it may not happen exactly what we imagine to be, but i know, it has more good things to wait and see.
Good luck to all our endeavors!!!
God bless us!!!
