30 Days Of Truths
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for
I have been pondering this particular topic for days, trying to think who the one person in my life is that makes it worth living for, and this has been a difficult process. The options are endless from my parents, siblings, kids, friends, even the ex husband. Everyone that comes across my path in my life makes it worth living.
We are each a unique vessel sailing the sea of life. Every ship we pass as we navigate impacts us in some way. Some pull up along side and dock with us at various islands of experience, and others simply pass us in the water. Some are beautiful sailing vessels, or yachts, bringing good to us. Others are like pirate ships with ill intent and bring pain and darkness to our journey, temporarily robbing us of our happiness. But each ship offers something, shaping who we are today. We have no way to measure the good in life without the bad, until we have been to the bottom of the barrel we have no clue how really high and wonderful the top can be.
There is only so much we have control over in life, and mostly that is how we react to each and every situation. We determine how we will respond to everything, sometimes consciously and other times through conditioning, but ultimately the choice of response and what we will take away or leave behind is our own.
So, the one person that makes my life worth living for….is ME!!! No one else, regardless of how wonderful or awful, can make the determination that life is awesome, or no longer worth living, but me, myself and I. While many of the storms that blow up on the seas I sail are out of control, as are the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, I can control how I will face and deal with each event. Everything is a learning experience, sometimes I will hurt and cry, other times smile or laugh, and how I determine to see my life determines that value or worth of every person, place and thing that I encounter.
I make my life worth living for!
