Reflection on Life #1

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it...nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward...”
-Rocky Balboa

Yes, I've come to quoting movie lines now. But few among us are strangers to the fact that the world is cold, cruel. It takes all of one's will and determination to constantly get back up when life puts us down. Very often we look back at life and all we see are mistakes, faults, things we could have done better, people we could have treated better. But the past is not the place to live. The Now is where we must be. Tomorrow is what we must live for.

The strength to face each day comes from within. Not from telling people how we feel, because, let's face it, we all know how that ends. Instead, it comes from acceptance. Accept the fact that what has happened, has happened. There's no changing it, no going back. We must accept our past as it is, squeeze the life out of it. Keep your innermost feelings and thoughts to yourself, and believe me, you'll be much better off.

Some people confuse this with withdrawal, hiding from the world. When, in reality, we are using this time, to lay the foundation for things to come. It is on this foundation of past mistakes and errors that we build the tower of our future. Lay your foundation well, and you ca be assured that your future will be what you make of it, what you want it to be.
