They said, there will be something that happens in our lives that would change us to be who we are. Like a war, whatever events hurt us and leave us wounded with scars, they are only hurt at that moment. But the aftermath of those events always leave an great impact of pain and grieve that we all have to deal with.
Some choose to distance themselves from the world, build a shell and hide themselves within. Some choose to keep themselves busy to distract their focus on the pain. Some bury themselves in the virtual world and be someone they want to be. Whatever solution you choose, you only temporary use it to ease your pain. Unless you face it, re-live the pain over and over until you don’t feel it anymore, you will never get over it. So take all your courage, stand up and ready to fight. You did that before and you can do it now.
Remember the time when you learn how to walk? you crawl as fast as you can, use you both hands to push your body up. You take your a couple steps then fall down hit your face to the floor. It hurts so bad that you cry. Then second attempt, you walk a few steps more then fall again but this time, you use your hand to block the floor from hit your face. You feel less pain then before. After many attempt, you begin to balance yourself and walk longer distance. You start to smile and clap your hand when you walk with pride. If you can overcome any obstacle when you were a baby, what stop you from getting up now? think you can do and you can.
Nothing in this world happens randomly, everything happens for a reason. We have little or no control of what happens in our lives. The moment you think you have full control is the moment you are already controlled. If we look closely to our lives, we would realizes lives have pattern of repeating themselves. They are a series of lessons that repeat to teach us, to mold us, and to make us who we are today. And if you are lucky enough, you found that those repeated lesson in life teach you be acceptance, be patience, be kind, and most of all be yourself
Be acceptance because things are not under your control. so why swim against the current when you can relax and let the fate lead your way
Be patience because everything happens at right moment right time, you can’t force anything
Be kind because you don’t know who will come to rescue you when you are down.
Be yourself because you are original, don’t copy or pretend someone else
Imagine that you have a bank account which gives you $86,400 every morning when you wake up. Whatever you don’t use up during the day gets taken back. Question: what would you do with the money? Of course, you would spend every dollar on your own pleasure and that of others whom you love. You would devour every cent from this magical bank, take the opportunity to make everyone around you as happy as you could with it. Maybe you’d even end up giving some of the money away to those who you didn’t know — because you probably couldn’t spend all of it on yourself and those close to you in just one day.
So what am I getting at? Each of us has such a bank — it’s name is time. The horn of plenty, which is constantly pouring out the seconds of your life. Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. And there’s no getting round the bank’s other key rule: it could close your account at any moment without warning; your life can end at any second.
So what are you doing with those 86,400 seconds? You must live in the present, on today’s deposits. Invest it, so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health. The clock is running. Make the most of today.

We all are travelers, who temporarily visit this world. We came with bare hand and we will leave this world with nothing in the end. All the money and frame that once we worked so hard to build, we still can’t bring them with us.
Even we know that but how many people can resist the world’s temptation? Have a roof, three meals per day, some saving in the bank are still not enough for us to be grateful. we always want more, more money, more love, more of this and more of that. The desire of wanting is limitless and that is where all the problems in life begin.
When we don’t have what we want, we wish and dream to have it. When we have it, we start to worry how to keep it forever. We get upset when we don’t have what we want. We feel painful when we lose what we love. we attach our lives to all temptations and allow it to control us. In fact, all the problems start from within because of what we want.
if we want peace, start to detach ourselves from the desire of wanting. Start to appreciate what we have instead of searching around for more. When we start to control our inner desires, peace will find us.
