Somehow in this life I learned how to reply to the question of “how is life?”
Two years ago I adopted a 11days old cat, where I had to take care of it and it was a big responsibility (when it came to feeding it constantly and doing stimulation’s for its digestive system) a friend of mine used to ask me “how’s the cat?” My reply always was “nothing new, alive and meowing it is!” Where the cat stayed alive, and in order for its survival it kept meowing for hope to get food or for stimulation time. Later on that became some sort of a motto; where it states that life is tough at those helpless moments, but survival and fighting through is the way to go. To me it held a really positive meaning, for after the phase of a cat “staying alive and meowing” it grows up and that’s when it starts to take care of itself. It’s a statement filled with hope for me; that this is just a phase and we grow with less meowing unless it’s necessary.
But a question came to mind “what if we are barely alive and we are no longer meowing because we lost all hope?”
“Are we truly alive then?”
“How do we deal with that phase?”
It’s a phase because it’ll pass, even if we think it won’t !
To survive that phase it’s a matter of staying strong.
“I Walk Slowly, But I Never Walk Backward”- said Abraham Lincoln.
Life is tough. You must stray strong towards all of that, and not only by appearance, but mentality as well.
We might face times of weakness, it is healthy to process that. Denying it is unhealthy as it will grow all over you till it hit you one day!
When life is good to you as you’re dealing well with life, appreciate it !
Make the good days, relaxing days and off days count with appreciation. As for the LESS of good days, make them count as well! Make your meowing mean something positive as you thrive to grow, as you look forward for the next day with hope; for without hope I believe an individual stays in a pit where no light takes place and where it’s all filled with toxicity.
And I believe that most situations don’t need constant adaptation, a temporary adaptation all that is needed; as an individual finds their way around the situation. Like any other video game as individuals levels up with experience…
So stay alive and meowing through this, till you grow to meow less and live more.
Grow to roar !
