Yesterday was one of the difficult days of my life. I drove slowly to work as I’m trying to enjoy the music that was playing in my car. But still, I don’t feel good enough. Instead, I said why not drop by the beach for 15 minutes while I still have half an hour before work started. Even though I’m worried about the time, I followed my intuition and go for it. It was just a random decision to release all of my worries. At first, I was not sure whether it will help or not, but nothing felt more amazing after that.
Here’s what I wrote:
Sitting here at the beach with the gentle sands, hearing the sounds of the wave. Nothing more blissful than having this moment to enjoy 15 minutes of my day before heading to work. Everything is unexpected, I decided to come down and sit on the beach to calm myself from feeling overwhelmed with life. I’m grateful for the time that I had and get so many inspirations about life. While watching the waves hit the shore, I realize our life is exactly like the wave. Our worries constantly coming from beyond our reach. It will go back and forth sometimes just like the unstoppable waves. It can be an enormous or just slight ripples. Life is truly unpredictable and full of uncertainty. There are times we hoped for better but most of the time the results are completely different. And thus our worries hit us like the big waves. Of course, there’s no way we can eliminate them, but we can choose to hear the calming sounds after that. It is soothing to our ear, isn’t it? Life itself is an inspiring motivation for us to keep going and not give up. Because there’s more to what’s waiting ahead. Keep praying and you will be calm.
I was almost in the major of break down and I have the least ideas on how to solve them but the words from God motivates me to keep moving forward. Even though sometimes I feel like running away from all the uncertainty, but I know it will train me to be a stronger person in the future. Even how hard it may seem, this too shall pass. That’s how wonderful things are. We didn’t realize until we took that one unexpected move to feel some changes. Even it means a small step wanting to feel free again.
Sometimes I have no idea how to explain all my worries to someone because at the end of the day, I will be the one to face them and solutions are only for me to search. That’s why I prefer to be alone and step away from all the noise of life. Just being with my own company and relax my mind.
Walking slowly while listening to my own footsteps, there’s no need to rush into life. But don’t take things for granted too, just enjoy the smallest moment where you can fully focus on your own being and be mindful of what your current feeling is. Even though you can’t find answers, but at least you can be calm in everything you do. Life is full of wonder but it’s such a beautiful place to be in.
Uncertainty is the main cause to worry. It’s one of the hardest things to clear away from our life. They will come like a thief to jump into your mind and cause tremendous trauma to the heart. But you as long as you are living, you will always be okay as this too shall pass. Embrace the uncertainty and enjoy every moment of your life. Everything is worth to be grateful.
