I have always been a strong person. I like being in control, and I have always liked it when life happens the way I planned it to be. After all, who doesn’t, right?
But real life… Real life isn’t that easy. Real life is hard, and complicated, and all kind of messy.
Life messes you up real bad. It throws you the biggest, baddest challenges, and knocks you down. You don’t see them, but they hide and wait for you around every corner, with a stash of new joy.
The past 5-8 years or so of my life have been a freaking roller coaster ride. I’ve loved and lost friends and loved ones. I’ve won and failed different things in life. I’ve met new amazing friends and bid farewell to old friends.
My life, although I’m very much happy and content with where I am right now, is definitely not what and where I pictured myself to be when I was younger.
But that’s okay though, because that’s how life’s supposed to be.
Life’s a real roller coaster ride. There are ups and downs and sometimes it takes you on a loop-de-loop. And, as much as I’d like to take control of it, I’ve learnt to sit back, relax, enjoy the ride and let the conductor (i.e. God) controls it all.
