Journey of life

Life is sometimes described as a beautiful journey. Sometimes it is described as a difficult one. It’s all a matter of perspective. But what people do not know is that they are in control of their own lives. If life is difficult for them, they are just making it difficult for themselves.

You may not realize it, but what goes in your mind controls your life. Think of the happiest person you know. It may be a family member, classmate, colleague or a friend. Do you think they are happy because they have everything and they lead an easy-going life? No, they are happy because they make the best of everything. They may have just as many problems as you do but they just handle it better than you do.

Worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do but gets you nowhere. Overthinking, anxiety and stress will not solve any problem. In the face of problems and troubles, you must act calmly and rationally. Dearest friends, life is made to be beautiful for everyone. You just don’t realize the beauty of it because you won’t let go of those problems that add misery to your life.
