Sometimes we glorify our painful present situations, forgetting that the future will come. We forget that life is written in pages, and with every dawn, a new one is turned. We forget that there is no skipping the processes of life, and with joy comes sorrow. It’s the balance of life. We see the end of that trying moment as one that will never come.
Truth be told, pain clouds our sense of foresight, makes us slaves to our current situation, and feeds us lies that there is no way out and no hope for a success story. When indeed we are already a success story.
Success stories are not just filled with good chapters. They also have painful chapters that teach us lessons and how to cherish the good times.
We have all walked through troubled waters and made it out fine. This is because we allowed ourselves to lose sight of our painful today in order to create a beautiful tomorrow. We silenced the voice of self-pity and took charge of our destiny. We let the Sayers say and continued to believe in ourselves. Working tirelessly towards that goal.
So I speak to you: do not lose sight of that dream just yet. Shift your focus from that painful today in order to attain that joyful tomorrow. Hold on a little longer and fight a little harder. It will all come together and, with time, make sense. Painful seasons last only for a while. Do not forget, success stories like you don’t give up. No, they never give up.
