Life’s Ups and Downs

Life has ups and downs. There are challenges in life as well as successes. Will you rise up and overcome those obstacles? When you conquer an obstacle, a fear, or anything that has kept you from moving forward or going after a dream, you will feel empowered.

Making mistakes is a part of life, a way to learn who you are and just how strong you are. Most of the time you learn more from your mistakes than your successes. Don’t look at your mistakes as failures instead see them as learning opportunities.

I have made my share of mistakes and my share of not taking opportunities due to fear.  I have learned over time life is not perfect, I am not perfect so I need to stop thinking there is a perfect way to live. Instead, I live embracing fear and overcoming it.

I love the person I have become. I know each experience, each success, each mistake has made me the person I am today and I love that person. There is no right path, instead the path is full of curves. Life can be like a roller coaster but with God the ride is better. I trust God’s plan is better than my own so I buckle up, hold on and enjoy what is about to come.
