If You’re Having A Rough Day, Here’s What You Need To Read Right Now

“The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day.

Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug, until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves, what Benjamin Franklin meant:

That knowing is better than wondering. That waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying.” — From Grey’s Anatomy

Rough Day

Artist – James Fenner

It’s funny how many smallest of moments make a huge difference in our life. It could be a minuscule thing for someone else, but for you, it might be an epiphany. We keep on reading quotes and phrases that are the wisdom of the ancient, we like them, perhaps save them on our mobile phones or keep them safe in the bookmarks. But when we actually sit down, take a breather and ponder upon our life, we realize that we just went flew along the situations that came by.

Little do we realize, that all the bickering and cribbing, never could solve the problem. There has always been hatred, guilt and discussions on the harm were done, but not the self-love and realization that we are the ultimate solution to everything. It is important to understand that people will always be willing to bring you down, put you through worthless guilt trips, tearing you inside out. People are always going to be happy to have a free show of seeing you crumbling down and they will not stop until you finally give up. And it is completely fine. It’s what they are good at but what they don’t know is how much better you are at dusting the dirt and getting up from the fall, no matter how scraped the knees be.

Failures

Failures and mistakes are part and parcel of life, and so is the grieving process. But they shouldn’t be the one to dominate your every thought, emotion that you possibly own. It is tough, because it’s very easy to fall but to get back up, it requires immense strength, will and dedication.

While it feels best if someone is giving you a helping hand to get back up, most of the time, it’s just you and that’s why it’s important to love yourself, have faith in your abilities and believe that there will be better days — because that will keep you moving. Actions have always spoken louder and while we judge people on that basis, it should be noted that your action and your choices speak more in volume than anything else.

If you read philosophical books, one common thing that every author would preach is, that the universe has its own laws and if you keep on focusing on the negative aspects of your life, you will find more negative things around you. I may be scientifically wrong over here, but what I have understood is that our brain works on the frequency and the more kind of thoughts we focus on, it invariably searches and focuses on that same frequency.

So when the times are tough and the path seems a little wobbly, focus your energy on putting the best foot ahead because believe it or not the journey is worth it.
