*sigh* I've been feeling like living as mundane and unexciting a life as I can. People may say "Live life to its fullest." But in living to the fullest you have to live through the emptiness as well.

It seems that every time you've just climbed out of your hole and realize things are going pretty good, BAM! Something hits you in the face and you slide right back down into that pit and have to start climbing out all over again. Whenever life is going good you have to know something bad is going to happen.

So, if life is never really good it probably can't be all that bad either. You may get pushed back from a ledge you found in the wall of the pit but you can catch yourself and get right back up to that ledge.

I’m sure plenty of you will bring up the point, "If you can catch yourself when you fall from the ledge why can’t you catch yourself when everything is going good?" and my answer to that is this:

You don't have so much going for you. You don't have so much to lose or feel disappointed about when you’re on that ledge. Even if you do fall down all the way you didn’t spend as much time getting there as it would to that ledge so it’s not so hard to just do it again.

Why "live life to the fullest" if life is just going to keep pushing you back down every time you try to get up?


Yeah, I can feel for you on most of this dude. Life's been compared to a roller coaster more than one time and as tired as that phrase may be, it's still true. As I read your post, I noticed something unusual. You left God completely out of the equation. At the highs in life people tend to forget about Him and live their lives according to themselves. Of course nobody's perfect because of our sin nature, so going by our own thoughts doesn't work as often as you might think.

So when we sin, we fall down. Then we see what we did wrong and ask God to forgives us and pulls us back up, to where we do the same thing over and over again. Chris Waterhouse used the illustration of sheep in Ireland. God's like the shepherd who says to his sheep "don't go in the street, you'll get hit by a bus" and then the sheep because they're stupid, go and get hit by the bus and the shepherd says "You stupid sheep, I told you not to go in the road!" In the end, the only real way to live life to the fullest is to live for God.

And here's hoping you always get back up.

*giggles* *likes Brian's comment* Well! Right now.... my life isn't really going up or down.... it's rather... staying constant.. yep. You and your silly mom! are silly... lol
