In a VUCA world where everything is teetering and everyone is fighting to retain a hold of the things that matter. We are confronted time and again with questions regarding the essence of life. What is the point of it all? Is there any meaning to our daily experiences? Is there a reason to continue instead of resigning to ‘fate’? Why?
Sometimes, there are answers. Other times, you get nothing. However, in contemplating the reason for existence, we find the strength to live with today’s pain and maintain hope in tomorrow. In seeking answers and desiring a better life, we keep our eyes open for the beauty, poetry, and synchrony all around us instead of just allowing life to happen to us.
Truly, you can learn to smell the flowers and draw inspiration from their beauty. You can learn to pick up the broken pieces and arrange them together into a collage that speaks true. You can learn how to draw out your creativity and produce something that will help many around you find meaning. And in their meaning, you will find meaning.
Life Lessons from Nightbirde
Nightbirde’s story rings true in this regard. Despite fighting a losing battle against three cancers, she stayed hopeful. She confronted her demons head-on, dug deep to write one more song, and when she rendered it at America’s Got Talent, she blew us all off. Nightbirde taught us that it’s okay to be lost sometimes but that we should not wait for things to get better before choosing happiness.
She found her innate creativity despite cancer pain, produced a song despite a mental setback, and a worsening health condition. And then she gave one final push at life. Her effort has since given hope to more than 30 million people globally.
