You have to learn to persevere when others wouldn't .To try one more time when others quit.To love a little harder when others lost faith.Happiness doesn't chase you,it's something you pursue.Joy is what you choose to find inside you,it's what let's you know that regardless of what's happening you still have you.You'll either work harder or stress more depending on whether or not you feel you're enough for you.Everybody isn't built to handle what you can.Some people will tell you to play it safe,out of their own fear.Decide what's for you,grind it and stay committed while it's yours.
If you follow me on Instagram you already know how much I love RobHill Sr's words.This guy speaks to my soul!I have enough of his quotes screen shot on my phone.I like reading them whenever am looking for inspiration.Anyway this particular quote got me thinking about my life.
I come from a humble background my mum is a primary school teacher and my dad used to work for the Government as a physical Planner,he's retired now.Growing up, me and my sis never quite got everything we wanted.Along the way things got quite difficult for us ,like I had to leave college after a year to look for a job and save up for my fees to go back , all because my dad decided to retire early,something I have never quite understood up to date.So anyway I got a job and trust me I hated going to work everyday while my friends were attending classes and enjoying campus life.I remember going to the wash rooms sometimes and just crying my heart out over lunch time.I mean I was 19 years and already facing work pressure from my boss I never liked that at all,so after 6 months my contract ended and I decided am not going to renew it,am going to stay at home and do nothing.
So I stayed home for two months doing nothing and that's when it hit me,what the hell am I doing with my life,what's this direction am taking.It hit me that It was my life I was living and staying at home watching movies,eating and sleeping won't get me any where.It was up to me to get off my lazy ass and look for a job or continuing staying at home and stressing over my current situation I tell you it took me a while to forgive my father for making me miss out on school.
I finally got a job a few month's later as a Sales Agent in a micro finance company and oh boy!selling loans was one tough cookie!A story for another day,sigh!I vowed to work harder when I got the job and a few month's later I got promoted to a loans officer and finally enrolled back to school to continue with my studies.One thing I have come to learn is that at the end of the day it's all about You,your life,not your parent's not your friends.It's up to you to change the situation you currently going through in life especially if you going through hard times,you can't lock yourself up and stress about it and hope that the stressful situation will go away magically,you have to take matters into your own hands and make things better,work harder like Rob says Happiness doesn't chase you,it's something you pursue.Most importantly your past never determines your future!
