“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”

Isn’t it surprising that people who live similar lives think entirely different about their situation? There are many people who have everything they could ever wish for. Yet, not every one of them is happy and satisfied. At the same time, there are many who are able to live a fulfilled and meaningful life despite having not much. As you can see, happiness greatly depends on how you perceive your life and how you think about it.
Life is not always easy. Life is not always fair. For this reason, it is important not to allow the things that happen to you in life to discourage you. Instead, try to maintain your optimistic and positive outlook on life. Doing so will help you to keep going when challenging obstacles abound. It will also help you to move forward during exceptionally difficult times.
It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness.
All too often, we quickly forget what a valuable gift our lives are. We are often times so preoccupied with fighting the – often irrelevant – problems of everyday life that we entirely forget to appreciate the beauty that is already present in our lives. Even more so, the pursuit of ever more hinders us in experiencing gratitude for all the amazing and joyful aspects of our lives.
