Life is a rollercoaster full of ups and downs, twists and turns
Our entire life is a composition of different, often unpredictable events, both good and bad, that we experience and live through all throughout our lives. Why good and bad? Because, as you had probably already noticed or experienced for yourself, life is like a rollercoaster, it’s not only going up where we experience positive and happy moments in our lives, it also often takes alternative route or turn, or in many cases rollercoaster goes down. Unfortunately, when it goes down it’s not the same feeling you when you are speeding downward on a rollercoaster, instead, you experience and go through some tough and challenging times in life. That is why we should always remember the concept of rollercoaster and how it travels along the track – going up, making slow and sharp turns, as well as going down very fast without notice or an opportunity to prepare.
This is exactly how life works, it goes up, takes turns for which we often not prepared, and in many cases, it takes us through paths full of challenges, problems, and disappointments. Why is it important to know and remember? Because, life often takes such unpredictable turns and twists for which we may not be ready or can prepare for. Instead, we are faced with situations in front of us – good or bad – and we must overcome them no matter what. It’s easy to accept good and positive changes, but it’s not so easy and simple to accept and face difficult situations when we are faced with one. However, if we know and accept that life can and will take turns which we may not expect, like, or welcome, we won’t be completely caught off guard and be ready to face specific difficulties and/or challenges vs. running and hiding away from them.
Many people choose to ignore points mentioned earlier and instead choose to pretend that their life can and will only go up, completely denying that there’s even a slight chance that things may change, and life can take an unexpected turn for which they are not prepared or be presented with unforeseen difficulties and challenges. Even when by observing someone else dealing with a specific life’s challenge at work, at home, business or personal, they are convinced that they could never face similar situation in their own life, until life takes a turn and presents its not so positive and unpredictable side. Then we realize that we should never say ‘never,’ because regardless where we may be in life today, how much or how little money we may have, employed or unemployed we are, run our own business or work for someone else, life may present us with its challenges and its rewards alike, and we should always be aware and ready for such possibilities. So, don’t get discouraged if you are going through challenging time in your life at this time, life is a rollercoaster, so what you are experiencing and dealing with today, may not be what you are experiencing tomorrow or day after. Be ready, be aware, and never, ever lose hope in good and determination to succeed in life.
