Life Has Its Ups and Downs

It is always worth remembering that life has its Ups and Downs. It is the nature of things. When you face the Downs it is normal to have negative emotional reactions. Depending on what the Down is we may feel angry, sad, anxious, frustrated, bereaved. There is nothing to be gained by fighting the feelings. They are what they are.

Just remember, life has its Ups and Downs.

Every Down will be followed by an Up. Ups also bring on emotional reactions: happiness, giddiness, love, gratefulness, joy. Again, these are to be experienced and felt. They are what they are. They are part of life. But remember, every Up will be followed by a Down.

Just remember, life has its Ups and Downs.

I do not suggest that you dwell on the Downs such that you fail to enjoy the Ups. And I do not suggest that you fail to embrace the Downs waiting for the next Up. There is however wisdom in remembering that the Ups and Downs will come as surely as the sun shall rise and set. It is life.

The next time you have an Up, enjoy it. Embrace it. It is what makes life joyful. But do not be deluded into thinking life will always be Up. Next time you have a Down you must also experience it but do not become hopeless or discouraged for there will be the next Up.

Just remember, life has its Ups and Downs.

And yes, life will sometimes deliver several Downs before it delivers an Up. And at times it will deliver several Ups before a Down. Both however are inevitable and to lead a balanced life one just accept and live through them both.

Just remember, life has its Ups and Downs.

Wishing you well,
