Who was it that said “Life wasn’t meant to be easy”. Malcolm Fraser…well hats off to you Sir, because you are indeed correct. Now tell me why it is that we didn’t believe you from the word go?
How is it that so many days pass us by, beginning under the pretense of being easy, and culminating in fear and doubt?
You see, if today could be summed up with a picture…this would be mine…
What I need to do is stop. Stop thinking, stop over-thinking, stop worrying, stop seeing things that probably aren’t there, stop worrying if they are, stop trying to figure it all out, stop all of that negative junk. It’s all very much easier said than done I know. The stopping…the overwhelming feelings of feeling…
When it all comes down to it, we want what we want, and our brains will stray to wherever they want to go. There is very little you can consciously do to recover from a bad thought, once it has presented itself in your head. The most you can hope to do is distract yourself and hope for the best once you ‘know’.
All you can do is focus on the good things, the hopeful things, because to be honest, I much prefer the original version of the quote By George Shaw:
“Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage: it can be delightful.”
Take care kids
