Taking control of your life.
I can’t remember the last time I decided to share a piece. I guess I have been so caught up with life’s challenges that I forgot to have a second to myself to share my thoughts to my lovely bloggers.
I have come to learn that in life we meet people that will either build us or break us but it is up to you to decide how you will handle those people.
Starting a new job beginning of the year I met this young lady. She had this crazy attitude to life which I must admit in the beginning I really thought she was hyper active Lol. As months passed we got so close that I started treating her like my little sister. When one was down we would motivate each other to hang in there because we knew our goals in life that we were striving for.
Recently she was involved in a car accident. The day I heard the news I felt like my heart was about to fall out of my body. I was in shock but didn’t think she would be in a bad condition.
She had been in hospital for two weeks now and I didn't have the strength to go and see her until recently. On my arrival at the hospital seeing her in that bed brought tears to my eyes. I could not hold my tears and cried by her bed side. I held her close and said thank you God for saving her life for it was not her time yet.
A couple of weeks ago my brother was also involved in a car accident. A car came out of nowhere and hit him while driving back home. He was hurt but God said it was not your time. I guess these incidents have taught me that when the devil and those who have so much jealously against you want you to die if you have faith and know that God is with you, nothing will come your way.
I thank God for saving their lives and praise his name every day. Life gives us challenges that will test and build us for greater things to come. I do not know what my tomorrow has in store for me but my mother has always said to me, always says NKOSI DI THEMBE WENA (Lord I trust in you).
Sometimes when it feels like everything is falling apart it is actually falling perfectly into place. Have faith, something amazing is about to happen. I call that HOPE.
Some days are better, some days are worse. Look for the blessings instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong, and get enough rest. You can’t do it all, but you can do your best, that is called giving it your best.
Sometimes we focus so much on what we don't have that we fail to see, appreciate, and use what we do have, that to me is being thankful.
Never throw in the towel, just use it to wipe off the sweat - then keep going. No matter how slow you are going your still overlapping all the people stuck on the couch that is never giving up.
You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analysing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can pick yourself up, acknowledge your strength, appreciate the lessons learnt and move on #movingOn #strongerThanYesterday
Yes things happen in our lives but we have a brighter tomorrow awaiting. It’s not important how hard you fell but the most important thing is that you had the strength to get up again.
