“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ” – Mark Twain
Right he is, Mark Twain. I struggled a lot the past week. Not because of the histamine intolerance, but mostly because of my day job, which is pretty stressful at the moment. Somehow all the stress from last year got added up, and i didn’t have the time to get it fully under control during Christmas.
During these days, you realize what family really is. When your significant other is there for you although you’re just not who you use to be. When you don’t even like yourself anymore. And he still likes you.
Stress is so bad for the body and I’m trying very hard to keep it under control to not have it control myself. Because it’s not worth it. It’s not worth it to give yourself and your body up just for your job. It’s not worth it to start fighting over the smallest things with friends and family cause you don’t have yourself under control anymore. In these moments sometimes you don’t know what to do anymore. But keep in mind - you ARE replaceable. That’s the cruel reality in such a field I’m working in. Yup. So if you pull out - it’s ok. And you’re not weak. In fact it’s the opposite. It’s STRONG. It’s strong to feel your body and know what it needs. It’s strong to stand up for yourself and your health. It’s strong to know what you want.
Sometimes you just need some outstanding people help you remember, like @alexabrebecca. Thank you.
I don’t wanna be disappointed in twenty years. That’s why I’ll try to watch as many sunsets as I can. And that’s why I’m trying to not fight anymore about stupid little things. If you are not happy with your life, change it. Love it and keep it or hate it and CHANGE it. Who’s with me? Who wants to take 2019 and let it be the year of change?! :) who wants to watch sunsets with me?!
"There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbeat, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time." - Malcolm X
This is such a great quote and so very true.
No matter what hardships or stuggles we're going through in life, we will all persevere and come out the other side with new experiences and new understandings, not only about that situation, but about life and ourselves too.
