Tweet-Style Story Summary: This is a non-fictional speech which would help you understand the challenges of life that one goes through, and how to harness the knowledge from it.
Full Story: The wonder of life comes with living such life. Irrespective of whatever happens, one certain thing to know or remember is that "To live is a choice", so can one day life is the generalized program of choices made? In my defence, life as a whole is filled with options therefore choices are made, it also comes with it's own view to the many individual, so I can now boldly say life isn't what you choose, rather it chooses because of your choices. What life comes with could be identified or described as that fully wrapped gift you get from someone and you are instructed not to open till when you are told to do so, therefore, telling you that you can't even steal a peek at the contents of the carefully wrapped gift, In other words, I describe life as a "loyal soldier" that helps you execute your choices no matter what they are and gives you the outcome without sympathy. People believe that as life comes with challenges, so also does it come with it's "luck", the truth is that, if you don't give room or space for luck to take place in your life then you could say you were fated with such "dumb luck". Life is the wonder and result of choices in the sense that, you choose to become a success or failure due to your choices matter how Slim your options maybe, at most times the problem might not be with the choices but the options, for example- A game with carefully hidden clues, certain times you miss out on that part of success because you were unable to know or see where your clues or options were hidden you talk about "one-way knowledge ", and I say "diversify your knowledge", with the latter you are given the avenue to source out and explore opportunities therefore, discovering the possibility of the impossible and seeing the yet unseen. Without you there is no life, I said earlier that life could be described as a "loyal soldier" knowing that without rules there can be no follower, so the fact life is laced with so many options for your choosing doesn't make it easier, as a matter of fact it just became harder, but if you could recall I said, " life has its own view to the many individual", so at that point you feel is your breaking point or your hardest day yet, bear in mind that people had once been in such situations and they came out victorious not by doing what they thought to be okay by their standards rather, it was what they thought best by anyone's standards using their principles as guides. You think it's over for you at this stage of your life and as a result you feel the need for it to come to an end literally, or you feel you are alone with nobody ready to understand you, well to let you in on a secret, what you are going through is just a phase, you don't have to make it a permanent thing, for when you do then those choices you were meant to make and options that were meant to guide you in order to extinguish such feelings becomes difficult to find and you are left with these words "I had no choice", buy you will always have a choice, there is the choice : To feel self pity, the choice to wallow in that self guilt over the choices you made earlier, the choice to self destruct on that examination you flunked or of the time you thought you were being non challant and irresponsible, the choice to remain that same sad self you 'be always been or the choice to go back to that pit you were dug out from. Breaking news! as a matter of fact, it's a choice. But of the negative choices you have made there is a constant positive one which is the choice to "SHAKE-it-OFF and move on by doing the best you can to do so, because no matter the self hate for being non challant or irresponsible, the truth is you are still being irresponsible with the bitter choices you are about making and when you look closely there is still someone out there who deserves and needs you no matter your past. For the past is gone therefore, it is non negotiable, but the present can still be amended so as for your future to be certainly safe. Know thus, the storm has long been over and if it were to return, it would be preferable if it were unable to blow away your houses or investments because this time they are firmly rooted, but afterall it's your choice. Life is a constant struggle, buy your choices makes you at peace with such struggle, and such struggle makes life worth living. You aren't meant to let life choose your battles or struggles for you because it would be giving you a whole lot you never bargained for, living you at the cross roads of permutations. Life as a whole is regarded as a companion because of the many individual and characters embedded in it who at some point in their lives where regarded as friends or haters in your life, so you can't stop living for that because, you will always have both friends and haters at every junction. The only solution is to make sure your relationships with such individuals count, make certain it was one to remember and be happy for, because at that breaking point, when you remember the smile you put on those people's faces and the smile they put on yours, you suddenly realize the world actually needs a beautiful person LIKE YOU, and nothing feels good other than being needed and wanted for good. But of course I mean the relationships you make with people you call your friends. LOL!!! So make it count! Life could either be your companion for good or bad, your choice.
