“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” Winston Churchill quote
As we go through this journey… this life… there truly is no end to it. This isn’t something to be afraid of or disappointed in, but as we move along, our goals and priorities change… we evolve and mold ourselves to the journey we are on. Sometimes life throws us some wicked curve balls, maybe throws us off the path we originally were on, but sometimes that is the beauty of life.
Being Bipolar, to me, is certainly my permanent curve ball.
We all make poor choices… every one of us. But being bipolar (and untreated, and in denial as long as I was) truly made my life have more ups and downs than there needed to be. I made choices while in the throes of depression and mania that had catastrophic consequences in my life. Still, I have been able to pull it together and I put one foot in front of the other, looking forward to what lies ahead. I am excited for the journey that is before me… I look forward to growing older (though I shall remain a child at heart forever♥) and watching how things will unfold and evolve as I grow mentally and even spiritually. I know that my personal growth will be a life long affair and I am very excited at the thought of that. I never want to become stagnant.
I want my life to count… to mean something to me. For once in my life, I finally see and feel that this ride has all been worth it.
I’ve certainly taken some lumps and bruises… but I have also felt the glory of what life is all about.
The journey never ends my friends… make it a good one. ♥ And if life blind sides you, stand up, dust yourself off, and continue on. It’s a beautiful life.
