Not just existence

I have a tendancy to feel sorry for myself sometimes. Maybe more than sometimes if I’m honest. I’m pretty good at listing my wrongs and getting lots of sympathy.

This is all well and good, but I’ve been realising that by listing all my wrongs and getting sympathy I’m not giving myself the space to move on from them. They are bad, tough things do happen, so does illness; but I’m finally learning that it’s there to be learned from, to gain experience, move on and be able to help people down the line.

So here is my aim in life, redefined. Call it my New Years resolutions come early if you will. I’m going to put my energy into enjoying now and looking forward to what is coming, remember the past but not dwell on it more than it deserves. I’m going to remember that bad stuff happens to everyone, not just me. That its called life and dealing with it is called living. I’m not going to exist, I’m going to thrive.

I think this is a pretty important realisation, hence deciding that it’s worthy of a post of its own. I can hear something in my own brain saying something on the lines of at flippin last, she’s got the point. So here goes. Hence forth, life; not just existence.

Wanna watch? I’ll let you!
