As we go along our journey, progressively, we started to understand the complexity of life: full of troubles and doubts. The everyday issues we face inhibit uncontrollable circumstances that pose a distressing risk to almost everyone. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, all aspects of life, strikingly, the health and well-being of the people, have been adversely affected. But with one’s courage and keenness to move forward in life, it became our source of strength to overcome the obstacles given to us. Little do we know; these concepts are powerful and influential tools to help us build our perspective on how to see the world.
The world will constantly evolve in an inevitable fate. It is a see-saw that enables us to experience the two sides of life. Times where our ideas, perspectives, desires, conditions, and circumstances, were aligned with the path we want to trail in which we can freely connect and explore our thoughts. Contrastively, there are times wherein everything we do does not resemble to go in our way.
Like any other person, our visions are continuously changing, as well as our motivational drive. But with a strong outlook and belief in courage, paired with a clear and positive mindset, we will have a pilot of what we must do to direct us to our purpose. Also, we must progress with a footprint, for us to know that we grew in time.
Courage is a powerful word that allows us to move forward to stay track of our goals. And our keenness to move forward in life amidst every challenge, difficulty, and adversity we come across, will, in turn, constitute a better, stronger, and wiser self we will become. These learnings and experiences will enable us to learn and to relive our past to plan for a steady, encouraging, and indefinite peaceful future.
The world will continue rotating around its axis amidst the catastrophes it encounters. The same idea goes for you: your life will continue moving along around you amidst the adversities you face. I hope you may find the courage, and may you let your keenness to move forward in life be your strength and power to keep you sane as you progress along your journey.
