We all know life is not always an easy ride along a beautiful cycling path. Sometimes it is just like a bicycle wheel spinning around on the ups and downs of a muddy trail (wait a moment. Actually, this is my idea of fun).

What to do during these dark days as giving up has never been a choice?

Somewhere in our life, we sometimes fail …
We sometimes get hurt, we sometimes get lost.
but those sometimes are the reasons.
why we stand up again,
why we learn to mend our wounds,
get back on the bike,
why we learn to ask directions …
Everything that happens in life has a reason …
Every happening leads to another.
So treasure each moment,
learn from each mistake
and celebrate each triumph …

We fail before we succeed.

Don’t get worked up over things
you can change, people you can’t change.

It is not worth the anger build up or the headache.
Control only what you can.

Everything else, let go.
