It's Just A Bad Time Not A Bad Life

Youn only know you've been high when you are feeling low, you only miss the sun when it starts to snow, Only hate the road when you are missing home, and only know you love your life when you allow the bad days in it just go, and not holding them back.

At every point in life, there's always something to bother you, something to keep those worries on a steady flow into your life, even if there's nothing to bother you, just that feeling alone leaves you anxiously waiting for one to bother you like we have been programmed to always stay worrisome even when nothing is going on. There's always something to keep those eyes ajar all night, sleeplessly, restlessly and faithlessly turning from left to right, pacing up and down, foolishly looking for the best position to focus and think on the problem and not even a solution to it. The bad days seem to outweigh the good days making the good days feel so short-lived.

From the human point of view, the bad days always seem to last longer than the good days. For beings created from so much better and filled with so much goodness, we tend to do a very poor job at making that our reality! You have settled your mind on the fact that good days don't last, yet you forget the fact that bad days don't last too, you've just got eyes for the bad. Poor soul! when are you gonna do yourself some good? At the end of the day, it all boils down to you as the captain of your life ship.

There's always something to give you that brief happiness and there's always something to eat them off like they never existed. There's always something to cause your heart to leap for joy and there's always something to kill that same joy. There's always something to be grateful for and there's always something to be ungrateful for. It's not witchcraft, all these have been put in places like some kind of law or something, but it won't play out without you, it always starts with you, your actions and reactions in your life when times and seasons change or fluctuates matters. What you don't start, you don't get to experience, what you don't experience, you don't get to live in, and what you don't live in you can't speak of or attest to. Sounds more like the story of your life, then you've got to get to work rewriting the story. It's not a bad life, it's not a bad day, it is a bad time which would pass one day.
