They say when you cook you have to be patient, because the meal you’re cooking doesn’t always taste delicious from the very first try, even when the ingredients are perfect and exactly as they are in the recipe, you have to try to gain experience.
In life we have that too, we try and try and we may sometimes fall and we don’t get it right from the first time , don’t give up and don’t fall apart, get up, be strong, have hope, try again, believe that something good is about to happen, I believe even when I don’t, I do.
Bottom line, this life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, It’s a universal truth! But the good part is, you get to decide how you’re going to repair the broken parts of yours, you get to decide if you want to move on and let go of the past or you want to stay where you are and never let go.
Have you ever wondered how athletic people tend to run a huge distance without even stopping once? Then you try copying them and get tired after running for 5 minutes only? And then you give up and think that you’re a loser? Well that happens in life too. We fall and we stand on our two feet again, we lose friends, we lose family, we lose ourselves sometimes, we make decisions, we reach a dead-end, we have breakdowns because they learn us something, we face things because they are supposed to teach us something.
You look at other people’s lives and you think that they have the perfect life anyone would ever dream of. Then you try copying what they’re doing. You fail. You’re now frustrated. You think that you will never be good enough. You stop standing up after falling. Do you think that those people got their perfect life without working for it? Unlike you they only looked at their visions. Unlike you they fell 9 times and stood the 10th proudly with more hope and courage. Unlike you they never gave up.
YOU can easily do what they did! YOU can easily achieve your biggest dreams! With just some hope in your heart and a belief that you’re going to reach the end line and ace that race, you can do it! No matter how long it will take, no matter how hard it will hurt to fall, you can do it!
