God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Tragedy, sadness, loneliness and despair taught me that life is really a beautiful thing; if it wasn’t I wouldn’t be able to recognize that anything was wrong. We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons. We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgement of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, as must, if it be honest, also come an understanding of its inadequacy. A beautiful life does not just happen; it is built daily by prayer, humility, sacrifice and love.
As a kid, you see something that you know in your heart is true. It’s such a huge hypocrisy that it makes you think, Well, if this is a truth that I know about that’s not officially accepted, at least in this country, then how many other truths are there that are under the surface that need to come out? Each man must look to himself to teach him the meaning of life. It is not something discovered: it is something molded .Even we, when we look into a mirror we make refer to ourselves, but through the mirror. Does the real us stand in front of the mirror which reflects the unreal us? How else is real Life reflected into the unreal Death? One thing is certain and that is that our image in the mirror is real as long as we are reflected in the mirror. In this case, isn’t Death Life’s image and thus Life becomes Death’s image? The life we know as such through its reflection in death is in fact our own Death. May we never let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness, let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have. Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.
