according to oxford advanced learner's dictionary survival means "the state of continuing to live or exist."
when we heard the word 'survival'. i am sure that most of us will be thinking for example, war. but war is not the only issue that needs survival.
in life, there are so many things that we have to survive in order to live.
if we are students. we have to survive our school days and obtain good result so that we can enroll in our dream colleges or universities.
we have to survive the diploma's years, degree's years, matriculation's years etc.
then comes the working world. where we are going to face real people with real attitudes. sometimes dealing with people are troublesome.
we also have to deal with the workloads.
we will also face the problems of our own. family matters, relationship issues, financial crisis.
comes to family. there are lots more.
problems and conflicts are face by every single soul that live in this world. everyone has their own worries for sure.
it depends on how we deal with the issues.
if we start to run away instead of facing and solving the problems. we will keep on running for the rest of our lives.
living is a survival.
what i realize is that as we grow older, there are a lot of responsibilities waiting for us.
the definition of life depends on how we look at it. it may vary from a person to another.
but live life to the fullest and never take things for granted.
appreciate every single breath that we breathe. because we will never know when we will stop breathing.
appreciate those who has always been there for us. who never fails to pick us up whenever we fall. who always cheer us up whenever we are feeling down. our family. our bestfriends. our friends. those that we love dearly. because we will never know when God starts to take back those that He lent us.
we have examinations in schools, colleges, universities and even in the working world right?
difficulties and challenges in life are just another form of examinations. God tests us often and for every pain. there are times when the 'exams' are to hard and we are down. we feel like everything is going wrong.
just remember that all the hard times are just God's way to make our spirit strong. so that we can survive any challenges in the future.
that is what i called 'survival'. able to face anything.
even admit the mistakes that we have done. need courage.
Not as haywired as it seems. A chaotic mind in this journey of life. I'm
no different than you. We have our own meaningful memories, hardships,
experiences, etc. Doesn't that make everyone interesting and special in
their own way? ;)
