I've often wondered if there is a manual on how to maneuver life's curveballs. A manual that provides tips or solutions on how to deal with unexpected occurrences that life throws at me. A manual that sheds light on how to handle turbulent emotions. Is there such a manual? I don't think so. What I have come to realize is that sometimes I have to write my own manual. 

I don't think I’ll ever master or perfect the art of penetrating these curveballs. Life, from what I see, has quite a wicked sense of humour. Just when I feel comfortable enough to let my guard down, when I think I've got it all figured out, life surprises me with a curveball I never saw coming which will leave me rattled and shaken. So, no, I don't think I'll ever master or perfect the art of penetration the roadblocks called curveballs. What I do know is, every time one hits me and I stay strong and keep my faith in God, a new path opens up for me. 

I also know that if I keep my faith intact and keep my eyes open, I will notice a new sign, or I will find a new direction, or I will see a lamp post that lights up the way and shows me what’s ahead of me. 

And I have faith. 

I trust that I will discover something that will make my journey now a little less terrifying, and maybe even a little less lonely. I know there is a lesson for me behind this curveball and I am confident that there’s something better waiting for me.

All I need to do is trust and to always keep my eyes open. There is a silver lining in this curveball. I believe that. 

Life.... it trips me up every now and then to keep me in check, to make sure I don't forget. 

So here's my life's manual.... 
A stumble is just a careless trip.
A brick wall is not the end of the road. 
And a curveball is just a temporary setback.
