It’s Okay to Cry

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened”. – Dr. Seuss.
I love this quote. It makes me think of good things from my past, fond memories and happy times. It makes me remember people I’ve lost contact with, who brought joy in my life.
They say all good things must come to an end, but I don’t believe that’s the case. I think that everything that happens to us is a prelude to something else, something that evolves or extends from it. So in that respect, everything that happens to us simply prepares us for what is to come.
We spend so much of our time thinking and worrying about money, and so much of our life trying to earn it. But when you take a step back, you begin to see that the times in your life that were memorable and special have nothing to do with money. It’s really our experiences that make us who we are.
Each of our experiences changes us a little bit, hopefully for the better. We learn, we grow, and we change. The people we come into contact with, the people we love and the people we simply tolerate – they affect us too.
Not all of our experiences and relationships are good. And some of them end prematurely, leaving us feeling sad and empty inside. But we can choose to smile even when we don’t feel like it. We can smile because it happened.
Sometimes, it’s okay to cry.
But it feels better to smile.
