There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path? Will others tell you who you are or will you label yourself? Will you be haunted by your choice or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.
I choose to move forward. Every day. Life hands you obstacles. You’re told one thing, and then expected to do something else. You no longer talk to one of your best friends, your dad has three scary heart procedures and someone steals $100,000 from your grandmother, is prosecuted and faces no punishment. You get laid off.
Oh, right. That all happened to me. But I believe in destiny. Fate. Karma. Knowing that by being a good person, you’re shaping your path on a daily basis. That by rising above all the petty gossip being said about you, you’re the better person. And you continuously shape who you are. Your time is an investment, and how you spend it further shapes who you are as a person.
I was taught growing up to give twice as much as I take. It’s why my friends will tell you I always put their needs first. I tend to not even realize I’ve worked myself in the ground until it’s too late and I’m sick in the doctor’s office. Compassion is what you make of it. I’ve been extremely lucky my entire life to be surrounded by love, hard work and the right morals. I don’t feel vindicated by snarking that “I got what was coming to me.” It tore me up inside. But by friends, mentors and others, I was able to push through. Some might have thought I was running away by moving to a different state. That was never the case.
And I’ve never been happier. That’s my karma. That push every morning to know that there is something better. That life is there for the taking. That in an instant, it can all be gone. So speak up. Tell people what you think. Go for that cute boy/girl that you know is amazing.
Don’t wait. That’s your karma.
