Life… an ongoing unexpected thing

Life is something that has been around as long as we know it. You would think that something that's even older than humanity itself, would be predictable by now, but it surely isn't. I've been offline for a while, because I was busy dealing with life, like any other soul on this planet. Trying to write a new post has made me look back at these previous two months. All I can say is that it's truly better to look forward than the other way around…

There's been a lot of grieve in my surroundings. Although I know that death comes with life and sickness with health, it's not easy to see the people around you hurting and grieving. I never understood the complexity of life as a child. Now that I'm older, and supposedly wiser, I'm more confused than ever.

We try to create a safe and protected environment for our children to grow up in. Despite of all our efforts, life is so unpredictable that we'll never be able to prepare them for the unknown. So I'm wondering whether creating this ideal safe world is adding to the weight of our grieving and hurting when the unpleasant things cross our paths of life?

This is not me being 'dark' and going all negative. I'm just trying to figure out…  Actually, I don't really know what I'm trying to figure out. This is just one of those things that keep my mind going on for hours and hours.
What it all comes to, is that life truly is a learning process. It's like falling down… somehow you need to find a way to get up and try again. It's an ongoing process and although it's not always fair, we must continue to move forward and wait for that moment when righteousness perseveres.

I've never met anyone who told me that life is easy, therefore, we must cherish every single good moment that comes along. Love your loved ones and try not to get aggravated by the people who annoy you, trust me, they're not worthy of your time. (yep, advice that I'm giving myself as well!)

The holidays are coming up. Spend the time well… have fun, enjoy good food and lots of drinks, but above all: go with the flow with all that is unexpected… simply live your life to the fullest!
