No rain no flowers, no mud no lotus. There is always pain, or suffering. These are things that we cannot avoid. It is part of life. If we do not know what suffering is we also cannot appreciate the absence thereof. Life always seem to have its' ups and downs. Sometimes we feel like it is always down. But I think these downs build us up, stronger, better and more resilient. We learn to fight. We learn to be innovative and creative. Without these set backs, it would be, I dare say.. boring.. And yes there are days when we feel like, we have had enough of these set backs but time heals all of it. Sometimes we feel like we do not have time, that everything has to be done now. And it makes us feel frustrated and disheartened. But we know, we have to keep on going. For stopping is not an option. Slowing down is and option, but quitting.. Quitting is for quitters, however redundant that is. We step back, assess the situation and think of another plan. Because there is always a way.
We all want a better world right? They have written songs about this, made great speeches over this, they wrote about it and they spoke about it and yes we are still fighting for it. We are not there yet and sometimes it does get frustrating, like one step forward and two steps back. But we keep fighting, we keep believing the human-kindness. We do things our way. We keep ourselves informed. We research and we listen. Not everyone can be speaking at the same time. We communicate. We do not lose hope. We will rise up from the mud and into the sun, into the brightness. We deserve that, everyone does.
Don't quit now. Fight the good fight. Love.
