We always find it hard to accept the realities of life. We like to defer it, hallucinate that the now we live is not what it is. Simply because it is not what we want it to be. Rather than accepting the present we have, we try to fight it in pursuit of something that we wish was the now!
Sometimes in life its important to face the current, the real, the present. It may not be all that good, but the ones with the courage to accept the now the way it is, are the ones who can move forward to create the life we wish to live.
Accepting realities may be difficult, some may say its truly earth shattering and depressing. Yes it might be all that and more. When what we are, the way we are, is not what we want it to be, it really kicks you hard where it pains the most. But then I question where is the fighter spirit we were born with? Its somewhere buried deep within all of us, its just the fact that very few realize it and even fewer are willing to face it.
Its about cruising along with the high tides, the one who negotiates the tides right, is ultimately the one who triumphs the life's fight.
