Your life

I found these quotes today and they struck me as very profound and it sums up how I feel about life:

“Nothing is ever wrong. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”
“Life is like a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.”

I am discovering that even my most painful events and memories serve a purpose, they helped me become who I am today. All my life I have been learning, maybe not even realizing it, but I have been making discoveries, changing and evolving, becoming more ME. I feel like I am in such a great place in my life right now, I have made connections with the past, made peace with some painful and traumatic memories, I have learned to forgive, that each of us did the best we could with what we had available at the time, I guess in some ways, I am growing up, becoming REAL. I am trying to become healthier, do more for myself and I recognize the need to put myself first. If I don’t take care of me, then I can’t take care of anyone else.

What do you say?

  1. I agree about having to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others.

    Thanks for sharing the quotes.

    I agree. I remember once a friend told me that everything that happens to us, be it good or bad, happiness or sorrow, finally enrich us. and I did realize that in course of time.

    and I’m back to blogging, again!!

    good. perhaps, five years down the line, even when we have not achieved what we think we should have, a sense of complacency sedates us.

    it’s not a compromise, it’s perhaps satisfactory to think that we have done something worthwhile in life, something that puts a smile on another’s face. everything happens for the better!! 🙂

    i actually stumbled upon this blog, by chance. i then realised that i had done the same about a year ago. dunno what happened then. but please don’t discontinue blogging.
