The Roller Coaster Of Life

I have so much to write, so much to give, yet I find it difficult to put to paper or type. The personal growth is happening at such a rapid pace I have not figured out a way to put this growth to its best use. My mind keeps going and going.

life can be hard…
fear
anxiety
loss
happiness
depression
excitement
hope
it can be
the most joyous thing one moment
the most grueling experience the next…
life is a roller coaster
that no one chooses to get on…
no one knows
when the ride stops with every turn…
there could be an incredibly high peak
or scary plungE
into a low…
no one can really see them coming
until they are already midway into the turn
who is with you
in your cart
might be there one moment
gone the next
sometimes that is your choice
sometimes its not….
there are people in front of you…
behind you…
and alongside of you
not everyone experiences the same ride.
this “life coaster”
might not be going
the way you thought it would…
or want it to…
Maybe it is harder than you thought….
and it does not seem
to be getting better….
maybe the bumps seem like too much….
maybe you cant
even see the light “out there”
or within yourself
but MAYBe….
just MAYBE…..
just fucking maybe
you were GIVEN this life
because it needed to be lived.
and YOU
were the ONLY one
STRONG enough
BRAVE ENOUGH
to live it
we cant always explain
how things happen
the way they do…
as smart as we think ourselves to be….
there is still so much
that we dont know….
so many mysteries
surround us no matter what
we may think,
know
or believe….
we cannot begin to understand everything.
it would be ignorant
to think that we could
but what we CAN do is BELIEVE…
we CAN
believe that whether or not
we are enjoying this ride
or not…..
everything happens for a reason?
and we have
the tools
that can get us
where we need
and want to go
see…
what most people fail to realize is
we are not seat belted
into this roller coaster…
we may not just be able to…
“jump out”
at any moment we want….
as some things we go through
we may not have much
or any say in
but there are
so many opportunities
to switch rides
we just forget to notice them…..
our clenched hands
on our COMFORT ZONE
of a seat
is actually a belt
keeping us held tight
in our current situations
and experiences./
its a MISTAKE
to think you are STUCK…
YOU ARE JUST HOLDING ONTOO TIGHT
TO WHAT YOU KNOw
AFRAID TO RISK THE POTENTIAL
YOU HAVE TUCKED AWAY
IN THERE…..
believe….
SOMEONE HAS TO………………………….
and you are
the only one
who spends enough time with you
to convince yourself……

THAT YOU ARE WORTH MUCH MORE THAN THIS!
