We all have those moments where we feel like the weight of the entire world is solely on our shoulders and what makes it even worse is when there’s nobody around willing to lend a helping hand. That’s when you realize that you have to keep going, carry that weight as far as you can, and you’ll eventually come across someone who will gladly help.
At the end of they day, it all comes down to how much strength and endurance you have, how far you are willing to carry yourself forward with or without anyone by your side. Once you are comfortable enough to keep moving forward by yourself when the going gets tough, you’ll also develop the ability to help others realize they can do it too. However, it’s important to realize that making yourself a better person doesn’t always mean the ones around you will turn into the best they can be too. This world has so many good people in it, but it has its share of the not so good as well. Don’t let the bitterness, unwillingness, and unkindness of others turn you into someone you do not desire to be. Just because you have to struggle through one obstacle doesn’t mean you won’t find a helping hand at the next; just keep going.
The best interpretation of the phrase “Kill them with kindness” in this situation would be to treat everyone with kindness no matter the way they choose to treat you. Sometimes, the most unkind people are the ones who need the most love because somewhere deep inside they’re the ones hurting more than we can imagine. It’s all a matter of understanding; some bitter people make others bitter and some bitter people attract kind people who choose to be patient and understanding with them; make sure you’re the second kind. What can be better than changing someone’s life for the better while making yours the best you can make it? Talk about killing two birds with one stone.
Sometimes, you’re given the chance of being someone’s hero; take it. Sometimes, you have to be your own hero & you know what? That’s okay too. :)
There are no limitations when it comes to working hard to make your dreams come true. Whether you’re a 5-year old child being registered for their very first piano lesson, a married middle aged women who is a mother of two wanting to attend a post secondary institution or a 60-year old couple wanting to take salsa lessons, your age should be the last thing, if anything to stop you from doing what you love. Any individual who is motivated and determined to reach their goals and fulfill their dreams no matter what is an inspiration for others.
So what if your parents didn’t have the time and money in order to afford expensive music lessons for you so many years ago? So what if you were a high school drop out at one point and couldn’t go to university at a younger age? So what if your husband was working countless hours in a different city so you were never able to take dance classes together? Just ask yourself ‘so what?’ and you’ll realize there’s no real excuse. If you’re being given the opportunity, take it now without a second thought. It’s never too late. Your past is gone, it’s not coming back and therefore, what happened back then doesn’t have to follow you into your present or future. Leave the past where it belongs and start fresh; build yourself a new path of dreams leading you to your beautiful reality.
It’s truly inspiring to step out into the world and see individuals who face constant struggles and obstacles in their every day life, yet refuse to give up their dreams. A positive mind leads a positive life; as long as you tell yourself that you can do it and that you will do it, nothing can stop you. Determination and will power can go a very long way and to let a number define your path is unfair. Nobody is born a winner, they have all put in their fair share of hard work in order to climb up the ladder to be where they are today; it took some a few years and it took others a lifetime, some began at a young age and others much later in their lives. You are your biggest obstacle; clear your path of any negativity and start climbing your ladder one step at a time and then watch the magic happen :)
