Have you ever had the feeling that you’re going pretty well with the flow of life, cruising through the river smoothly, without any obstacles on your way, when suddenly the flow changes its course into a river full of twists, turns, rocks, logs, and many other obstacles?
Fact is, Life’s River is like that. Always like that. One moment we may be enjoying the best ride of our lives, only to find out that it ends up in a waterfall. Or we may be enjoying the view around the river, when suddenly, a crocodile or a snake sprouts up. Life is cruel, aight? (Agree so far?)
When shit happens, we complain. We retaliate. We blame. We point fingers. It’s a natural human reaction, that is, to react to a bad situation.
But changes happen. No matter how shitty we look at change, it happens. Just like shit, it happens. Ironic one may consider, but nothing in this world is permanent except change. Change is abdolute. Nobody can change the course of change. Everything’s destined to change. Nobody can do anything about it.
What we can do, however, is to move on. To Accept. To Get Over it. It may be the most horrible thing to do, but we have to do it. “Moving On” has got to be one of the most painful thing to do, but once you’ve done it, it’s eternally rewarding. And hey, that’s another memory in your treasure bank.
We make friends, we lose friends. We grow teeth, we lose teeth. We go there, we leave there. We sleep now, we wake up later. We change, we refuse to change. We see, we refuse to see. We walk, we run. You see, it’s a never-ending process. Changes let everything fall into place, everything that God has planned us to be! Without change, we don’t grow (physically, mentally or spiritually). And what would happen if we don’t grow? We get stuck as babies (again, physically, mentally or emotionally)! God forces change for us to grow.
No matter what changes happens in our life, it may not be too painful to shed a tear or two. But you know what? Accepting change would really be eternally pleasing, and fulfilling!
Here’s a prayer I really love, and it’s all about change:
Grant me the serenity to accept with patience the things I can’t change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
And here’s a song I’d like to murder (I mean, chop off then put some of my thoughts to):
Rainbow by South Border
Fallin’ out, fallin’ in
Nothing’s sure in this world no, no
Breakin’ out, breakin’ in
Never knowin’ what lies ahead
We can really never tell it all no, no, no
Life is a constant change. We never know what paths to take, and if we’d take them for the rest of our life. One thing’s for sure, though, change will still happen.
Say goodbye, say hello
To a lover or friend
Sometimes we never could understand
Why some things begin then just end
We can really never have it all no, no, no
Yep, in our life, we make a lot of hello’s, equally so we say a lot of goodbye’s. It hurts, and most of the time we even ask why, but, we can really never have it all!
But oh, can’t you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
So baby, just smile
Coz im always around you
And ill make you see how beautiful
Life is for you and me
God made the world beautiful. And it will be so, forever. And no matter what happens in our lives, it will continue. We cannot stop time, that’s why we should move on, so that we could move with the flow of life once again.
Take a little time baby
See the butterflies color’s
Listen to the birds that were sent
To sing for me and you
Can you feel me
This is such a wonderful place to be
To mourn for quite a long time isn’t good. We get stuck in that same lonesome period, which could affect our lives. Instead of sulking in the darkness, why not appreciate the beauty that is around us?
Even if there is pain now
Everything would be all right
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me
There’s a rainbow always after the rain
Aaahhh… the ultimate optimist’s point of view. Life goes on, and the rainbow! I just love the rainbow… the rainbow signifies hope. That after the battle with the raging storm, something good comes out of it, the rainbow!
Well, that’s it. Don’t have the energy to finish the rest, but whuddaheck! If you’re an optimistic person, then you should go make “Rainbow” your theme song, just as I did.
Always Remember: “Nothing in this world is constant but change. Because Life is A Constant Change!”
