Every Defeat, No Matter How Much It Hurts, Comes to Show Us That It Is Time for Improvement.

Updated on August 19, 2017

I love life

I love life. I love her for many reasons. One essential thing is that it never leaves me in peace! When I think I can stop and enjoy what I have done, life will find a way to show me how many things are there to improve yet. Depending on the lesson I have to get, sometimes it will find a gentle way to show it, sometimes a not so elegant way and a couple of times will bring me the big defeats on my way. It always has the right way to wake me up when I go to stagnate. That's why I thank life every day.

Life is an incredible adventure

Life is an incredible adventure through which we must experience all our potential and use it to create happiness within and around us. Create happiness for us and the people around us. To experience our full potential, we must gradually improve all our virtues and characteristics, both spiritually and physically and this apparently means effort. It needs continuous and often painful effort. Our ego, with the laziness that characterizes it, dislikes this effort. So to avoid it, ego will find excellent excuses, pretexts, and lies to convince us that we are at the right point, so no effort is needed. It is, unfortunately, easy to fall into its trap and encroach on the nets of spiritual pride.

Life is putting signs on our way

Then life takes on its role by putting on our way several signs to wake us up from this mental and physical lethargy in which we begin to fall. Unfortunately several times we will pretend that we do not see or we will justify it is not on our level. Laziness and selfishness are evil counselors. So if we continue to ignore the repetitive signs of life, something must come to shake us up enough to get us out of the apathy. Then the big defeats will come.

The truth is very problematic. It ruins my illusions!

How beneficial these defeats are, can be told, for example, by all the great athletes. Most of the time their great successes and record came after the shock of an unexpected defeat. The stubbornness that they brought led to the effort for the high-rise.

I thank life for all the difficulties

So I enjoy the fruits of my efforts and thank life for them. I never blame it for the difficulties that are coming, nor for the defeats, I have to deal with, no matter how big they are, because I know that it is my responsibility for them. On the contrary, I thank life for them, because they will remind me that there are much more, more beautiful, to enjoy. Fortunately, the adventure continues on new levels.

From my ashes, I will rise again

      Thank you Filio, for your words. If my texts become life guides just to one person, I'll be so happy. Remember, love is patience.

      I fully agree with you. Death is coming when we stop trying!

      I kind of always felt as if our real death is not when our organs stop functioning, but when we stop trying. Trying to do better, to be better.

      Once again a great point of view. Loved it!
