Life Lessons

This is a Movella filled with life lessons. It's not a story, or full of poems. It is simply full of what I've learnt from life, and what others have learnt.


14. Swings and Roundabouts

I know this all too well. Life is all about swings and roundabouts, twists and turns. You can't predict the future and you cannot change the past. Just take the present in your stride.

Things can change from good to bad in the blink of an eye. One day you're on a massive high, the next, you've had all your happiness ripped away from you. Poof! Gone. Just like that. Take me for example, one Sunday, I was on top of the world, beaming about everything. Things were fabulous and I was so so happy. Less than twenty-four hours later, I was sobbing. I sat for a good hour in tears. I could not believe that my luck had changed so fast.

Now, I've had time to think. Mull it over and make a sensible decision. I'm taking it my stride. Rumours are for people who don't have lives of their own. Period. I'm not letting one thing get in my way and ruin things. I have too much to look forward to.

Sure, I'm sad it's all over. I've genuinely never been happier than that one Sunday, but, in a way, maybe it's for the best that things ended early on, rather than months down the line, causing even more upset. But I've picked myself up with the help of family and friends, and I'm ploughing on. The world isn't going to stop for you. You have to keep going and remember that the good is on its way back to you again, perhaps in the form of amazing test results, or a different, more exciting experience.

And that's all I can say. It was an experience. An absolutely amazing, fast, if-at-times-slightly-confusing experience, that I will learn from, and remember. But always in the back of my mind, I know: it's all swings and roundabouts. Good goes bad and bad goes good.
