Life is a funny thing. Well, it is to me. I'm not saying I've had a bad life, because in no way is that true. I have, however, been in quite a few situations that leave me wondering how the hell I'm going to get myself out of them. Just like anyone else, I've made my fair share of mistakes and poor choices. I'm not afraid to admit that. And looking back, I'm not really ashamed. I'm where I'm supposed to be at this exact moment, and without those mishaps and bad judgements, who knows where I would have ended up.
I know that life 'throws a lot of curve balls' at you from your first breath, but I also know that nothing is ever too much for you to handle. Whenever I find myself in one of those situations where I'm trapped and I can't breathe, I just have to take a step back, and things seem to come together right before they fall apart.
Of course, there are times where things fall completely apart, but that's life. It happens. You just have to gather the pieces and put the puzzle back together. Just because you've been broken doesn't mean that you're not strong. (Even Superman has a weakness) Not putting the pieces back where they belong, well that's a different story. It takes a lot more courage to pick yourself up and get back on track than it does to just walk away (from a problem). Walking away always seems like the easier choice, but years from now it'll still be taking up space in the back of your mind...
So, in conclusion, today sucked. It was one of the crappiest days I've had in a long time. My morning was miserable, and all because of bad news. Now it's six o'clock and I'm still breathing. I know that it's not the end of the world. I know that I'm going to be alright. And I know that this isn't going to keep me down.
And I know that no matter how bad a situation is, or how bad I think I may have it at any given moment... it could be worse. It can always be worse.
Plus, I'm OK.
I'm always OK.
