Guess this is just another one of those days. KESC’s going to town with it’s unscheduled load-shedding, life’s going downhill in pretty much every respect, and my head feels like a ton of bricks decided to do back flips and fall on my head all at once.
From hurtful words to distractions, to these god awful power outages to my ever fluctuating blood pressure, I am having the time of my life. On the bright side, I’m getting to blog 🙂
Fact of the matter is this is just another one of those days that my life seems to be riddled with. I can say that I’m used to it but I’d be lying. I can’t really get used to these things, specially when my blood pressure is bothering me. Things see just getting weirder by the day.
Does this mean that I’m losing hope? No way in hell! In my opinion, the moment you lose hope, you give up on life and stop living altogether. That’s when you lose your life; when you lose control over your life.
Thing is, hope is what really keeps us going; hope that things will improve, that everything will be alright. This might not be true for everything, but it is true for almost everything. Things do eventually improve but “what” and “when” depends on how soon you stand up and tell the world “no more”; when you tell the world to stand aside because you are coming through. You need to take charge of your life.
I believe in fate too, but I also believe that our fate is determined by our choices. We decide where our lives go by our choices and are responsible for our actions and their reactions. For example, would your dinner get prepared and served by itself because it is written in your fate? Would you pass your term finals and score an “A” without even giving your exams, simply because you are destined to pass? Does your light switch itself off at night when you’re asleep? (Load-shedding and timed lighting aside)
Scratching your head, right? Good. That’s a positive start 🙂
