“No, life ain’t always beautiful
But I know I’ll be fine
Hey, life ain’t always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride” – Gary Allan
I’m a fairly optimistic person. I like to see the good in people, hope they’ll do the right things and encourage them to be their best at all times.
And the overwhelming majority of the time I’ve found the human spirit is a beautiful thing. We tend to take care of each other, support our loved ones and will do just about anything for those whom we find precious in our lives. I have your back, and you have mine. Most of the time.
Sadly, there are moments in life when this doesn’t ring true. And when the walls come crumbling down it’s important to know that the miserable experiences in life are essential components that make us stronger and make us love even more.
Not everything in this world is going to go according to plan. God will throw monkey wrenches into your schedule and life. You will be tested. And it’s how you deal with these adversities and hurdles that is going to shape the future of your life.
Shit happens. Really shitty stuff happens. In the last couple days some good friends of my family were murdered in cold blood. The act was atrocious. It defies belief. I’m not sure how in the world you can put any type of positive spin on it because you can’t. The fact is, life ain’t always beautiful.
But it’s the ups and downs and roller coaster of emotions that makes this life worth living. If we were always on a constant high there wouldn’t be anything to measure it against. So while life isn’t always beautiful, it is a beautiful ride.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
PS: RIP Mona & Leo. You always cracked me up and put a smile on my face. May the ride on the other side be a ball full of joy and smiles.
