Everyone has it: The human experience. So what is it? It’s different for everyone. It is in the moments and the breaths that we take that our character is made. However it is in those moments also that can make us or break us.
Those moments, however fleeting, shape us into doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers etc. Sometimes into thieves, rapists, murderers, users and abusers. Each moment needs to be contemplated, examined, for it is how was take these moments and turn them into who we want to be as a human beings.
I know not everyone is religious, but I am. I am a Christian, and I believe that everything happens for a reason, a part of Gods plan if you will. I have always had the faith that God won’t give us more than we can handle, and if we try to do the right thing and try to take care of ourselves He will never let us down. He will always be there with open and loving arms.
All this being said I wish you all the best of luck on your journey, and remember that its is all apart of the human experience. It may not always be happy and glamorous, but there are always those out there you can reach out to. Don’t think you are in this alone, you aren’t, you will always have someone there if you just reach out.
I have been thinking about this lately, especially the thoughts that my Pepa won’t get to meet his great grandchild when the time comes. He won’t be making the memories that I got with him as a child and young adult. I’ve been missing him a lot lately, and I know that death is all apart of the human experience, but it doesn’t make it hurt less.
Without death how would we appreciate life? Without death how would be learn to love and cherish one another? Without death where would we be? In all honesty I don’t know the answer, and I don’t think there will be an answer in this lifetime of mine. All I do know is that this thing we call the human experience has so many ups and downs and twists and turns; and some day, my human experience will end. I can only hope that I will have lived my life in such a way that I will be fondly remembered and missed for the person that I was.
