You sit in one place relaxed and calmed and think back to all those times when you thought you would never make it. But here you are all relieved and peaceful, reminiscing the time when life was too tough for you to take.
One moment will have you screaming for breath, and the one right after that will have you jumping with joy. You can never really know what awaits you and that is the beauty of life. You can't see your misery floating away and your smile coming back. However, the one thing that you can definitely be certain about is that nothing is permanent. You will not cheer up with joy forever nor will you cry in agony eternally because there will always be an end; an end that will engender a new start, hopefully a better one than before.
If you begin to regard your share of problems as an inevitable part of life, it'll get easier for you to cope with them by the day. The tighter you hold on to your past, the harder it gets for you to move on. This is because you deal with your problem as the owner of your life that's meant to stay permanently. When in reality, it's a guest that will depart one day or the other. The sooner you embrace their presence, the easier it will get to deal with them. Whenever life unloads an unbearable set of agony on you, remember that this too shall pass. You just need to get through it and learn as much as you can. However, when life hits you with a myriad of happiness and joy, live to your fullest because this very moment that you cannot stop smiling in, will also come to an end.
It is all a matter of time until you are presented with a new beginning. When life gives you an opportunity to restart, seize it. By seize, I don't just mean move on; I also mean quit letting your past keep you from exploring what awaits you. Your past is gone. You cannot undo it now, can you? Clinging to it will do you no good but keep you from living a happy life. The best way to supersede your past is to learn from it and apply those lessons in the new beginnings you've been presented with. The moment you escape your denial phase, things gradually begin to make sense. You will slowly learn to be happy again and carry that smile everywhere you go. It'll be harder in the first few days, but as you walk the path of acceptance, you'll eventually notice the difference in your life.
