Life has been described severally as a journey. At some point in this journey, we may encounter some very tough and difficult moments where it seems that going forward has become absolutely impossible. Out of fear of encountering such challenges, so many people are yet to start living the kind of life they desired but they keep waiting, anticipating when things get better. Unfortunately, many of them had waited, hoping and expecting for things to get better and unknowing to them, they had lived out their whole lifespan while still preparing to start living.

Another unfortunate irony of life is that, most times, many people do give up at the point when they had almost reached the threshold of breakthrough. Listen to me child of God, the only reason why you are feeling hopeless, confused, disillusioned and frustrated is not because you are not as lucky as others; not even because you do not have any helper or that you do not have good opportunities. The problem is just because you do not know or understand the things you have and of what values they are to you.

According to bible in Genesis 1:31, after God had finished creating you, He looked upon you and said, “Behold, you are very good.” Thomas Jefferson, America’s Founding Father and principal author of the Declaration of Independence said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Christopher Gardner in the movie, “The Pursuit of Happiness” while making reference to the above quote by Thomas Jefferson said, “Happiness is something that we can only pursue…”

Life won’t just get better simply because you wished it so. Many people know exactly the kind of life they desire to live. They dream it daily, they talk about it; they even feel so optimistic about it but without taking action, your wishes, no matter how powerful can never just become reality automatically. Thus, the greatest challenge that many people are having in life is, not knowing how to transit from where they are now to where they really desire to be.

I always feel pained to my heart each time I hear news of someone who had committed suicide. It’s painful because there are thousands and one reasons why you should explore more of life. Bottling up feelings of depression or hopelessness and crying silently for help, not knowing the way forward in a world that is full of opportunities and possibilities, to me, is self sabotage.

There are even many people out there who, even though they have not committed suicide but are as good as dead already. In the words of Dr Myles Munroe, The Greatest Tragedy in Life is not Death,......but it’s Life without a PURPOSE. It is said that for every one suicide, there are ten men and women who had attempted suicide. And for every one of those, there are ten who think of killing themselves, but do not. What do you think is the underlying cause of such wicked thoughts?

Many of such people do not have anything to live for again. What is your goal in life? Are your goals big enough to stand taller than all your challenges?

My dear, life is full of possibilities and opportunities. As the world continue to witness new technological breakthrough and inventions, life is becoming more and more enjoyable and that is a good reason to still hold on. But, don’t just fold your hands and be waiting for things to change.

Don’t get stuck in life, when it seems that one way has closed there are other thousands and one ways available. Create room for flexibility of choices. Stop living with frustrations trying to change the direction of the wind; instead, you can adjust your sails to reach your destination.
