On earth, Lightning strikes

They always say “lightning doesn’t strike on the same place twice.” I say it doesn’t have to strike twice on the same place; it sure gets it right the first time. And yes, like scientists say, I choose to believe it is a myth. It doesn’t happen more often because it finished the job the first time around.

 Sometimes life hits us so badly, we may feel like we may have been strike by lightning, and to some people it happened to them more than once. When life strikes you, you feel it… and sometimes you will forget who you are. On the other hand when lightning strikes you, you will sure feel it… and by God’s grace, you will remember who you are, that’s if you make it out alive. They’re similar; it’s just that in life the chances of living after being strike, are more likely to be 9 to 10 and you can completely forget the moment without the traces. Lighting on the other hand will surely leave you with the scars.
Mountain climbers take pictures when they are at the top of the mountain. They are smiling, exited and triumphant in the picture. They don’t take pictures along the way because who wants to remember it?  In life we push ourselves because we have to, not because we like it.

Nobody wants to remember the sad moments, the pain and the anguish of taking it to the next level. Nobody takes pictures of that, nobody want to remember all of that. We just want to remember the great moments; we want to remember our graduation days, our greatest achievements, and for mountain climbers, they want to remember the breath taking moment at the edge of the world, they want to remember that view from the top of the mountain. That’s what keeps us climbing, it’s worth the pain, and that’s the crazy part about it. It’s worth anything. Lightning doesn’t often strike twice, it’s a once in a lifetime thing.  Even if it feels like the shock is coming back over and over again, eventually the pain will go away, and the shock will wear off.
