Remember That Life Is Not A Straight Road

When you feel alone…

When you feel like nobody understands your pain…

When you feel like you’re all that you have left…

Remember, life will sometimes test you. You will feel the urge to die at times. You will feel like everything that was good that happened was a sham. Don’t give up.

You’re not here to live a perfect life of happiness 100% of the time. You’re here to grow, to learn to accept the things which you have no control over. You are here to believe that things would get better even when  you currently see no reason to believe so.

And when you look around you, and see no hope for a miracle, trust that the path laid out for you will eventually lead you to your desired destination – or an even better one.

Life will not be like a straight road that you drive on smoothly. Life would be like a curvy road on which there are potholes available. Navigating this path will mean you would have to develop the necessary coping skills needed to become good at doing the one thing that you may suck at.

Appreciate those who’ve become family to you. Be thankful for your life journey so far. Take some moment to embrace yourself. Life can be worth it because you showed up.

Life is not a straight road. Remember that. It would help you keep your hope alive.

“If you don’t make mistakes, you can’t make decisions” ~ Warren Buffet

That’s a quote that got my attention.

As I was pondering on the quote, I found the inspiration to write you on this post.

How to Overcome Your Fear of Writing Failure Before Dawn

Writing is beneficial to so many people. In fact, the average writer realizes that writing, whether it is done for self or for an audience, always benefits someone out there.

The lesson is that there is someone who values what you write. And true writers don’t write because the always want to get paid. They write because this is just part of them.

Writing is part of a true writer’s everyday activity. It doesn’t matter whether it is done on a blog or a piece of paper or on a computer screen. The reality is that writers don’t give up on their craft easily.

And so the easiest way to overcome your fear of writing failure is to put yourself out there.

Just write.

In fact, I’ll say you should write until it hurts.

Writing is what you do; intend it and take action. You’ll get better over time.

Forget the worries about being perfect. Perfection is just a myth because true art can never be complete.
