“To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face, and to know it for what it is…at last, to love it for what it is, and then, to put it away…”

― Virginia Woolf

 

I just watched ‘The Hours’ for the umpteenth time…and cried my eyes out (again). One cannot but recognize yourself in one of the characters….the savior, the poet, and my favorite, the brave one (Laura Brown) who didn’t care what other’s thought, she chose life…but didn’t they all, in the end, choose life….even Richard who committed suicide. What a remarkable story and what amazing performances. 

I can identify with Virginia, being a depressive myself…a scorned thinker and imaginative and her words about life is so true. One needs to understand that life will always be here, real, with us….look at it, see it for what it is….horrible, good, whatever, then put it aside and live your own in a way that you can deal with best. Isn’t it true that we are all but survivors? We are all trying to live our lives as we see fit and, even if life hands us the most terrible cards, we still wake up in the morning, we still have to get up and face it. We have no choice in life….we are living, period, but we do have a choice in HOW we live it. 

So say, thanks life, for messing up, I accept the challenge, I cannot change it, but I’ll go on none the less or not….our way forward is our own choice, life cannot take that away from us. We either live or die by our own hand in the end.
