Motivate your life as a journey

Life is a Journey

Do you see your life as a journey, or as a destination?

Life is a journey and is filled with many issues.

The issues you fill your journey with are what make you feel so special at times.

In life you learn from your lessons, from your pain, from your great laughter and sadness.

You shouldn't use your best moments only as lessons.

You can travel to many places in this world and still come back to your life with your own attitude.

The purpose you have in your life allows for your journey to be continued.

Your attitude changes everything about you.

I learned from hardships, and sad experiences and encountered the good and the not so good experiences over time.

I did not want to turn away from my hardships that wouldn't have made me this person I am today.

My challenges grew and I did too with the new foreign lifestyle.

I overcame obstacles with courageous moments and had faith in my beliefs.

My destination had a purpose and I put that into great use.

I was courageous to take the next step forward.

Overall, life is a journey and so is my life a journey to be remembered.

Sometimes what we are presented with is the greatness in life for us to fight toward against all odds.

We don't see these obstacles as a test instead take on the challenge and squeal about it.

I was confronted with many situations. Some of my situations were happy, sad, heartache, discouragement, pain from all sides.

I took the journey freely, and held on to what I knew was best for me.

Off-course, I squealed about certain issues but did not make that a permanent squeal.

Writing a memoir is difficult and I plan to take on the challenge with great hope.

I had to face up to what was put against me and can still do it.

When all is good everything feels happiest and the best, and when all is bad sometimes you want to run from that experience. I stayed through all times.

I made the best out of all situations.

I thrived and am determining to succeed.

I learned to be positive from my lessons learned.

Time is there, I have to use up time to see more in my life.

A journey that goes on for a long time.

It is easy to think negative on life's journeys but that won't help me get what i want from my life.

I did not let time stop me from living my life.

Sometimes you can forget to live your life because you use time as an excuse.

What helped me be this strong individual?

The hardship, heartaches and lessons from the emotions.

People came into my life for a reason and I accepted their friendships.

It is a change when you don't see it right away.

Some people stay in your life for a lifetime: while others just come and leave as soon as they got there.

You can't always see the reasons for that person coming into your life.

How often do you meet people?

When you meet different people you open up easily and tend to forget hard times you had experienced.

Meeting people does make a difference in your life; even if you don't see it right away there will be the time for you to see the differences.

· Be yourself!

Those special moments stay with you forever, such moments don't fade away easily.

The little strengths you find in others help you move on as had helped me to move on.

I know after meeting the different people I can always look back on those experiences. A journey I can continue to feel good about through my challenges.

The wonderful moments are great in life. The opposite should also be a part of your life.

Don't ignore what got you there in the first place.

I cherish memories and that is priceless to me.

· I can let go but I will not forget!

I sometimes dream of my past life and that I can hold on to but to feel easier to let go off in time.

My journey is filled with all emotions and experiences. It is hard to talk about all the time writing about it is better for me.

I don't want to ignore my past life because I can't ignore what brought me to this level in my life.

My adventure thus far has been encouraging and opened to me.

I can look back on the person I was to the person I have become: and see my strengths in all my challenges. My new life has made me feel this way.

I had joy, sadness, frustration, and felt trapped in a corner at times.

I managed to see myself out of that corner when I helped myself.

· What inspired me?

The simplest things have a greater image in my life.

The simple moments in my life made more sense to me.

I am eager to accomplish my goals and to continue writing for myself, also about myself.

I walk around the neighborhood and discover special moments.

I spot new plants and herbs during my daily walks.

Walking encourages new moments.

I am eager to capture the reality of life.

A kind face is appreciated by strangers.

· A smile does not cost a dime.

I learned to connect to people in my own special ways.

A connection with someone is such a great moment.

The moment you feel that connection everything suddenly feels better.

I felt that way when I connected to certain people around me.

You can feel that connection with a close friend, a neighbor, or with a salesperson. It can be with anyone.

· The connection just happens.

I observed and let go of those with whom I didn't feel a connection to.

Whether you do, or don't speak a foreign language you can still connect with people through emotions, physically, or mentally you can too feel connected.

Approach each day with a new event and you will grasp the connection with people.

It’s an opportunity to learn from, and to move on in your journey.

Things will never be the same again for me. I don't see how it can be. I look forward to each day like a new moment.

I know that my closeness with my family will be forever missed but in my heart I know better.

The beginning, the middle, or the end of my challenges can do good for me and make more changes.

Changes can hurt you, and break you to make you the strong individual you didn't dream of. I believe in what was meant to be and this is just that.

Knowledge is powerful, and in my life it is a beginning over and over again.

· I have experienced through all my events that life is what you make of it.

I make life a happy one for me , no one will do that for me. I survived it all and will survive more with my confident thoughts.

I tried and I tested, and am satisfied with my achievements.

At the back of my mind I know nobody has walked in my footsteps only I have in all times.

Nobody can relate unless they have been there, and will assume if they haven't been there.

I chose to share my experiences to pass through these stages of my life through my journey.

More Adventures!

      Great hub on life. I feel that life is a journey. What helps me get through hardships is the fact that I know nothing lasts forever. Just knowing that one simple truth gives me the strength to face it and move on as a stronger person. Keep it up!!
