You Are Braver Than You Believe

“If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.”
-Winnie the Pooh

Perhaps the most compelling quote ever credited to a portly cartoon bear.a montage of memories flashed before my eyes and something inside began to hurt.It was then that I caught myself subconsciously wishing things were the way I wanted them rather than the way they were meant to be. But then of course, I immediately gave it a second thought and realized what an ABSURD thing that was to be thinking and I scolded myself. Though I rarely intend to, sometimes I wish things had turned out differently… because I can’t help but wonder.So often I scornfully catch myself wishing for things I don’t have, or at least things I don’t have any right wishing for. Sometimes I wonder who I would’ve been, had past journeys been steered down different roads and headed in completely different directions. Sometimes wondering can get you into trouble because it’s often the case that you find yourself, by some mysterious form of inherent rationale, believing that you, or your life, would’ve somehow been better off, had things turned out differently. Perhaps that’s trite and pessimistic but I suppose this way of thinking is more common than we tend to gather or even realize. I try to remind myself how blessed I am to have what I have.I’ve been given and for the opportunities I’ve been allowed to seize. I am altogether undeserving, and thus, so very humbled.

Hey, Hi
well, truly said that when we think of the past and think of the course life would have taken if things were to have happened like we wanted it to be, we probably think that we would have been happier...
but, i guess we get what we deserve, and its for our own good that god hasn't given us the power to fulfill our wishes...

Regards,
The Silhouette...

Thank you for your visit and comment.
I am so very sorry about your dad, it must be still a very raw emotion for you. Words can't express how you feel as everyone copes in difference ways.

Take care.
Yvonne.

Don't scold yourself, it's human to wonder. When I find myself wondering too often, I try to remind myself that the other path may have led me to something unexpected and awful.

Its been a long time since you posted. Welcome back.

Sometimes, I too wonder whether to be humble or have a huge amount of proud in me. I won't explain the rationale, but more often, my mind and heart settle for the second option. The ones belonging to first, they miss things.


Happy New Year.

Cheers,
