A Moment of Reflection

As I am uploading photos and videos of my recent trips, I can’t help but smile. I am truly happy where I am. No matter how crazy things can get, I think being here put me in a state of where I feel the most comfortable in. Believe me, there are days where I wanted to give up and let things go that maybe it would change the situation. I’m happy I didn’t do that. It would’ve led me with full of regrets.

Imagine going through life without all of the memories I’ve built from that time to now? It wouldn’t have existed if I left. Crazy! This led me to reflect and think why is it that when we are in that negative state of mine, do we let ourselves be a victim? As if, happiness is unattainable?

I remembered before moving to Europe, I was laid off from my job. I was devastated! I never imagined in my life it would happen to me. After that event I went on a depression mode, my life was in a whirlwind and I didn’t know what to do with myself after that experience. The worst part of that situation for me was the fact that I let negativity consume me to a point of loosing myself and loosing control of my world. Was it all worth it? And for what?  Today, I simply can say no. It was not worth sabotaging myself. It was a point in my life that I overcame and that I wouldn’t want to repeat again.

I guess what I’m trying to get at is that life will always take you in different twists and turns. To me, it’s a matter of how one handles the situation and remembering oneself what you value most in life. That is what keeps me going. What about you? What keeps you going?
