My motto has always been to enjoy life (hence my blog title). Oddly that simple phrase came from a palm reading of my best friend, and it stuck. But over the years I’ve learned it can be really difficult. Quite frankly sometimes life isn’t the most enjoyable thing I’ve experienced.
Slowly, I’m getting it. I’m getting the fact that enjoying life doesn’t mean that you have to by happy 24-7. Cause shit happens…like the ones you love hurt you, people die unexpectedly, others lie and cheat, old friends lose touch, others are selfish and ignorant. These are the moments I’d rather shove into a landfill and hope they don’t destroy the earth in the process.
However in looking at these pitfalls in my life, I have learned so much. I have become resilient and appreciative of the everyday moments, not the lowest lows of my existence. I am a strong woman, proud of the progress I have made. I am experiencing the true feelings of love. I can laugh and smile, but also cry and be angry. It’s all okay. I am real, comfortable being me.
Enjoying the real life that I have has shown me what amazing things can happen through turmoil and deceit. So I will continue to enjoy all that life has to offer.
