I Made Peace With The Uncertainty Of Life: At Least That Much Is Predictable

"Sometimes you tell someone to never call you again, and then the phone rings and you hope it’s them. It’s the most twisted logic of all time." – John Mayer

We push people and when they are gone, we want them back. Probably logic and magic don’t work together. People who push other people know why they do, it's not that they don't love them anymore, but they know that any more love would be poison for them. And that is why they need to be pushed away for theirs and our wellbeing.

Every breath brings a change, and unless you can learn to live without breathing, you must learn to live with change. The sooner you accept this, the better you can achieve serenity.

One day, you’re hoping for something to happen—it doesn’t. And what you don’t want knocks on your door a thousand times. You have got to learn to welcome differences, there is no skipping that. Friends change, lovers change, even the taste of your favorite food changes. Talk about consistency, huh? We all have some people in our lives who were once everything to us and now we don't even talk to them or worse, we do talk once in a blue moon so that we don't have to accept that it's over. I don't mind accepting when something is over. I know by now, things and people come with an expiry date. That is why I want you to learn to start accepting. It's a simple, strong formula to live happily.

"Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened." – Dr Seuss

We need to stop fighting the force and learn to let go. Search for the good in the new, and remember the best of the old. When you look through the glass of optimism, you start to realize that change is for the better. There is no shame in accepting that every change is tough and sometimes you cannot cope up immediately. It's alright. We are made with different potions, each of us, but one thing we have in common is the desire to live our lives in the best possible way we can.

We don't own the power to stop things from changing, but we do own the power of love that will allow us to start embracing the changes.
