Let shit happen to you.
Shit started happening exactly when a sperm decided to meet an egg. It formed a small embryo. It developed a heart, it took birth, and shit went down further.
Now taking birth exactly wasn’t your choice. But it gave you a chance at life, irrespective of the time you be on the planet. It gave you a chance to experience innumerable surises and sunsets, warm hugs, cool breezes, adrenaline rushes, ecstasies, and a myriad of emotions.
It also gives you pain, heart break, loss and suffering, irrespective of your age and the meticulous planning you might have put into making things happen the way you want. So let it happen to you. It's only a part of the evolution, helping you evolve at every stage of your life.
Here's what you get to choose, when shit happens that's out of your control, how you control the consequences, how you react to it, what you learn from it, and how you make the best out of the worst of the situation.
You get to break out of the darkness, and choose sunshine, just like how you made your way out of the womb ready to take on this world.
