Life is hard, it's a juxtaposition of daily experiences, feelings, moments. Sometimes, you feel like everything's flowing and moving in the right direction but, others, there are obstacles in the way, things that arrive and test your skills, your endurance and how quickly can you adapt to a new environment in order to survive. 

In some sense, I believe that we respond better to certain scenarios than others... Imagine life is a baseball game and you're thrown a curveball, you can: a) miss the shot; b) give it all you got and try to hit it or; c) give up and not even try. Even when we're dipping our toes into new situations, we still have our own "comfort-zone-way" of doing things. Think about it, we all have that friend who tries too hard or the one that doesn't even care, we all have our own way of dealing with things, old or new. 

I've never been good with changes, it's hard for me to adjust and feel comfortable when I'm trying new things, that's just the way I am... But there are things we can do, things we can get, that will help us overcome situations. Those lift us up and give us wings, allowing us to manage and cope with what life hands us. It's about getting lifted and reaching for new heights, even in the darkest of times. 

// La vida es difícil, es una yuxtaposición de experiencias diarias, sentimientos, momentos. A veces, sientes que todo fluye y se mueve en la dirección correcta pero, otras, hay obstáculos en el camino, cosas que llegan y desafían tus capacidades, tu aguante y qué tan rápido te adaptas a un nuevo ambiente para poder sobrevivir. 

En cierta forma, creo que respondemos mejor a ciertos escenarios que a otros... Imaginen que la vida es un juego de baseball y les tiran una bola en curva, pueden: a) fallar el golpe; b) darle todo lo que tienen y tratar de pegarle o; c) rendirse y ni siquiera intentarlo. Aún cuando estamos descubriendo nuevas situaciones, tenemos nuestra propia "forma de comfort" para hacer las cosas. Piénsenlo, todos tenemos ese amigo que trata de más o el que ni siquiera lo intenta, todos tenemos nuestra propia forma de lidiar con las cosas, viejas o nuevas.

Nunca he sido bueno con los cambios, es difícil para mí ajustarme y sentirme cómodo cuando intento cosas nuevas, así es como soy... Pero hay cosas que podemos hacer, cosas que podemos conseguir, que ayudan a sobrellevar estas situaciones. Son esas las que nos elevan y nos dan alas, permitiéndonos lidiar con lo que la vida nos da. Se trata de elevarse y alcanzar nuevas alturas, aún en los tiempos más difíciles.
