Let me tell you one thing… A few weeks ago I got a new tattoo. It is a wave and it literally symbolises the way life has been treating me. I don’t mean it in a negative way. Let me explain it to you.
A wave first of all is something led by outside forces, right? Which means, we can not control how big or how long or even how strong a wave might be. Also, being on a really good wave, means metaphorically speaking, that our live, in that exact moment, is awesome. But on the other hand, we know this wave will eventually end, and we will find each other in a less positive state. Though, you know what? This is totally okay!
Because this is how life works. We can’t be on a constant good wave. And if you are reading this right now, thinking to yourself, but jess, my life has been really awesome for the past year. Well then I can tell you one thing, you are damn lucky! Honestly, of course I have been lucky. I have had some really good moments, for sure, but also some really bad ones. And that is how my life has been treating me. But it made me even more grateful, because I valuable the good waves even more.
And the bad moments, when the wave is over, are moments of lessons that I am learning from. They are making me stronger and they are forming my personality. And I also learned, no matter how low I might be feeling, I know deep within, the good wave will sooner or later come and will make all those bad moments worth it. Which also made me realise, that it is important to try to control everything. Sometimes and actually a lot of times it is not in our hands, unfortunately. So why stress about it?
