“John Lennon is credited with saying, ‘Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.’”
It is so incredibly easy to get caught up in the motions of pretending to be happy and fail to actually experience happiness. When things go wrong, it’s practically human nature to assume the worst and that things are falling apart. Sometimes, they actually are. Other times, it’s simply an exaggeration. Regardless of how bad circumstances may be, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and that things work out the way they do to allow us to grow and to make us stronger people.
Rather than stress about things you can’t control, put your time and energy into things that you can help, especially those that make you happy and bring you joy. We all have good days and we all have bad days. The universe throws us a curveball every now and then to see if we’re paying attention, but always remember that if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
In the great movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” John Lennon´s quote is used by Dev Patel. You really should see that movie.
The only real failure is the failure to try. And the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment. As we always must. We came here, and we tried. All of us, in our different ways. Can we be blamed for feeling we’re too old to change? Too scared of disappointment to start it all again? We get up every morning, we do our best. Nothing else matters.
But it’s also true that the person who risks nothing, does nothing; has nothing. All we know about the future is that it will be different. But, perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same. So, we must celebrate the changes. Because, as someone once said “Everything will be all right in the end. And if it’s not all right, then trust me, it’s not yet the end.”
There is no past that we can bring back by longing for it. Only a present that builds and creates itself as the past withdraws.
