We can prepare ourselves for a forthcoming exam, we can prepare ourselves for school, we can even prepare ourselves for an interview, but when we look at everything that happens in our lives, are we ever prepared?
I was never prepared for life in the true sense. Without any support or guidance it was impossible. I’ve had to do all the preparatory work myself. If I couldn’t see my way through an issue, I’d find a way. If I needed an answer on something I’d intuitively look for the answer.
I look for a resolve and I don’t give up. Not having support or guidance has prepared me to go it alone. I was either sink or swim. It wasn’t easy, but it did help me understand that if the help wasn’t forthcoming I had to help myself.
I don’t think any of us can be or will be fully prepared for what life hands out, but near enough in my book has to be good enough.
