When we multiply two negative numbers, it becomes a positive number. As in life, good and bad things happen in waves (wave after wave). Sometimes life can be even and wonderful but also odd and what feels to be out of luck.

Dividing life up into years only makes sense when we are young. As we get older, it goes completely over our heads and goes by in a blink of an eye. We tend to dread the future because we don't know what is going to happen; the unknown. The unknown is familiar yet unfamiliar to us. We are not sure where it leads to but its there. Its scary to think about. We believe in ourselves that everything will be ok and trust ourselves in what we know; to prepare for the unknown.

The unknown is life, and life happens. We have many roads in life and its up us where to turn. We have signals of when we are going to turn, but other times we get distracted and lose track of where we are going. The distractions can be bad experiences or lessons that we learned that let us go off for a bit. We learn from these distractions. We learn what to do and what not to do in situations. Often times, we can be stuck in it until we finally learn from our mistakes. Everything takes time and not all bad things that happen are our faults. Another person's path may have crossed yours, unexpectedly, but want you to either learn from it or to keep going past it.

Your gut feeling is an instant reaction to how you feel about a situation. If you have to second guess yourself or realize you're making the same mistake twice (or more times), that's when you know you have to make the right change for yourself. These negative experiences do not last forever. If anything, life gets that much better once we have passed them. You have the will power to make a difference in your life. "Haters gonna hate, hate, hate. Playas gonna play play play". But you know what? Just "shake it off" and move forward.

The plus, positive sign is your happiness. You have the power to change you! Make your negatives become positives and enjoy your experience in the unknown. Who knows where your journey may lead.
