‘Between rocks and the fence…afraid of being happy’
They say after darkness comes the light…but what about the darkness that follows the light?
I’ve always been an optimistic but I think it’s easier to encourage the person next to you than yourself!
The beauty of life it’s that, it wasn’t made to be easy…all the rocks and the fences we have to overcome to follow our dreams, makes it all that much sweeter when we get there:)
…and all it’s good to concentrate on the challenges we face…working harder to achieve our goals, because this way we feel worthier of the prize, we think we deserve it because we put our heart and soul on the line to get it.
But what happens when you’ve got it?
…when life finally smiled back at you, embraced you for a split of a second and brought you to the one place you fought to be?
It feels strange…it scares you, because now you think that there is a possibility of losing what you’ve worked so hard to accomplish.
We are taught that life it’s about sacrifice, it’s about compromise…that life it’s full of pain but always followed by endless joy…but is it endless?
We are so used to being in a constant battle, that sometimes we forget how we should be when it’s peace…when our dreams come true and we can put the sword down and be happy.
Do we know how to be happy…or are we afraid that the moment we allow ourselves to feel happiness, it can all be taken away from us?
Honestly, I don’t know…
Sometimes I think I am afraid to let myself be happy…I smile but I still hold the sword in one hand…ready for any battle I might have to face…
I believe we enjoy the obstacles…we feel alive when we constantly have to conquer and as we bury ourselves in endless crusades, we believe that life should be that way…but it’s not!
Allow yourself to be happy, celebrate your victory and look at the clear blue sky without wondering where the clouds are:)…I know I will try…

Note from the author:
Live your life without constantly wondering what will be your next step…don’t be afraid to smile if you’re happy…don’t think about the rain when you feel the warmth of the sunshine and forget about the dark when it’s light!
