Finding Meaning in Suffering

Life’s a roller-coaster especially for individuals who have trouble stabilizing their emotions such as myself. I have been told many times that I am an intense individual in terms of my emotions. But why do people feel that way?pexels-photo-483686

As an individual I have suffered lots… many times due to my own choosing. My belief is something powerful comes along with suffering and that something is love and appreciation. Consider the differences of a child who has been spoiled to a child who has been suffering; suffering places a stronger focus on needs rather than wants whereas being spoiled puts the focus on wants more than needs.

Suffering tends to have a negative connotation to the word when realistically we all suffer in various ways and it’s what makes living really worth something.

The Thief of Time

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time but the question is where to start?

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by our daily lives and stress over every little thing while in the bigger picture of life we remain motionless. Fear of failure interrupts a lot of us from taking the next step whether in our career or personal lives. Procrastination has been somewhat of a norm for many people but why? Why do we allow ourselves to procrastinate when it creates so much stress and anxiety?

Well to be honest I don’t want to get to deep into the idea of procrastination but instead I want to tackle procrastination by the horns. Forget procrastination, get out of your head already and take action.

Learning new “life hacks” (concepts and ideas to improve daily living) can be great but without taking action the information gathered renders useless and irrelevant.

“It’s not stress that kills us, it’s how we handle it” – Hans Selye

Take what you’ve been given and run with it. Take gradual steps and build momentum for one day you will be looking down from your castle and spreading your hope onto others who in turn will feel the same emotions.

Help these individuals find their castles so you can wander amongst the glorious palaces of those who have reached their kingdoms.
