As human, we are bound to have limitations. From the things we want, versus what we can just have; to the things we receive, against the things we’d like to have, and things we can tolerate to have. Life is never about wanting for something and toiling to have it on your palm. Not every effort is rewarded. We are sometimes, though some are often(or even feel are always), being pushed to our limits. Good thing, it enables us to gauge our restrain and flexibility; bad when it makes us realize that we are just that imperfect and this silly world just tries to pound us until we’re tired of surviving.
Have you sometimes or even once felt like quitting? Did you quit? In life, we come to the point where we do not know the purpose of what’s happening. Are these trials here to strengthen us? Well I love to entertain that thought on my mind whenever conflict arises but at the back of my mind I am thinking, “Are they really for that?” We can’t help our selves from thinking that way, I mean, I think, That is one of the imperfection of our genetic engineering. Our mind goes beyond the things we just want to conceive leading us to weird questions that needs an answer that, we know and certain, is very irrelevant from what we are living for.
When you get tired of running, you have options to decrease your speed, jog, then walk or stop. Basically, that’s how life goes. It is a never ending running, you hop over short bars of challenges, sometimes you successfully pass, sometimes you fall on ground. You get wounds, cramp muscles. bruise and sweat. You meet people along the way, running with you or others are running against your way. You go through rough roads, smooth, steep and flats. You know what’s waiting at the end of your run? That is the greatest surprise of life.
Now when you get tired of your run, REST but never STOP. Rest to regain your strength, rest and refuel. Why stopping should not be your option? You know that with your self. Life is meant to be traveled. It is not about how many times you fall or how many times you jump over obstacles. Life is made to meet people along the way and share smiles with them. Life is not about counting how many goes against you way, it is about finding someone to run with you through all. Life if a precious race with a surprise at the finish line. Aren’t you excited for your surprise? You feel like quitting? Take a rest, but never ever stop.
