Life Is A Roller Coaster…

Life. Many things can happen in it. Life can have many meanings. Some good, some bad. But life is WONDERFUL no matter what. Life gives you struggles and obstacles. Life will build you up and life will tear you down. But no matter what, life will reward you in the end. Life will also reward you along the way as well, but we have to open our eyes and not harden our hearts to see those rewards. IT can award you in ways that you don’t see right away or in ways you could never imagine and believe me, it will catch you off guard. Friends will come along that mean the world to you and give you chances that you may never get again. Life is god. Life is a challenge but you never do it alone. You may feel like everything is ending right at your fingertips and that you have no grip left. But that is when you just need to hold a little tighter and have faith. Everything will be ok. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride of life. You see, its like a rollercoaster. It has ups and downs, twists and turns and sometimes really big drops but it always stops. You just have to hold on for the ride. Once it’s stopped it’s stopped. We are not able to go for that ride again. No matter how crazy or difficult it gets, we only have ONE ride. ONE way ticket. We must cherish it and hang on while we can.

Sadly there will be times when people, experiences, things come into our life and screws everything up. It gives you too much to handle and at times you think to yourself “What did I do to deserve this” and/or “I cant do this anymore, I don’t have enough strength”.

You actually may never understand why those things happen but in the end it makes you better. It makes you stronger, wiser. It makes you a very strong person. Life will give you scars, but that’s when you wear them proudly and show that you showed up to these experiences and came out stronger. However sometimes people jump off the ride, before it stops. They never really give it a chance to change and others around them feel like they are to blame.  All we can do is try to help people on this ride. Be there for them when things get tough. Show them it is ok to go through these difficult times and that there are ways to get through it. And when all they want to do is let go, just help them hold on tighter. Life is hard in general. It teaches so much yet hurts also. Life will never be perfect. Think about this though….

How much fun would life be if it was all perfect? You wouldn’t learn all you could. You wouldn’t go as strong as you could. You wouldn’t be a better person. Everything would just be going the way everyone would want. Boring I’d say. Just hang on for the ride.

Its BEAUTIFUL.

 

What Its ALL about…

Journey

 

Welcome to my blog! I am so glad you are here to join this journey with me. I decided to create a blog to share experiences, stories, and wisdom I have gained in my life. To talk about matters that have a special place in my heart and to also be able to help others through challenges that life throws at us. In no way, shape or form am I perfect but life is about living, growing, and helping others and that’s what I want to do. Life is hard, so why not get through it together?!

On this site, I promise you will Laugh. Learn. Cry. And hopefully feel inspiration! The world tells us all to be ONE way and if we don’t follow that one way well, then it’s the wrong way. This site will be a safe haven to talk, love and express what matters most. There may be topics you agree with and some you don’t, but hey that’s ok! I will be posting every Wednesday and Sunday and you NEVER know, there may be surprise posts as well!

I would LOVE to interact with all of you. So if you have ANY questions, topics you want covered, things you want to know, or just someone to chat with please contact me under the “Follow Me” section. I will be posting polls periodically to let YOU choose what I should talk about!
