You can never overlook someone who comes your way in the middle of the night with a flash light and shows you the way without saying anything. Well, sometimes, it’s not exactly the way, but a feeling that there is something light, which is enough to make life meaningful again. Everything is just a moment, after all, one that passes quickly, so it makes no sense to catch storms, because we can still see shooting stars in the sky and just yesterday, I counted six. I made a wish for each one, because it’s a tradition to look up at the summer sky, or any sky, and take in the majestic display, you look at the moon and can only imagine the small grain you represent in the infinite universe, but still, you’re here. And it counts for something. We’re not selfish when we ask others to treat us nicely. Sooner or later, we reach a point when we seize to prove ourselves worthy, because we don’t need others, and then we finally breathe freely. People in our life should be there to reduce the stress, not to increase it. Still, we run into lots of obstacles on our way and we really don’t need many of them, but subconsciously we make sure they remain where they are. The deep mysteryof human kind.
I recently went to Italy to do some grocery shopping, when a lady stops me in the parking lot. She politely approached and told me that I’m the reason she didn’t give in, these columns made it worth to hang in there and move on. I didn’t dare ask her life story, but only because it’s probably similar to ours. They are countless and we’re all swimming in the same ocean. But the gesture seemed so nice to me, it really touched my soul, because I was able to help her, unknowingly and from afar, but after all, that’s the power of words, when you feel them on your skin and they seem written for you alone. I thought that means I have a calling and that it’s not only my way, but ourstogether, because my paths and yours keep criss-crossing and we probably don’t even know it, but somewhere in the universe there is someone pulling the strings and they can see a lot further than we are able to.
Life has taught me that strength doesn’t stem from the moments when everything goes according to your plan. Neither does it come from situations in which you are the perfect winner. When you’ve hit rock bottom and you’re struggling, and then one day you wake up smiling to the reflection in the mirror, and you move on dissregardingwhat was before, because there is so much good and new in front of you, well, these are the moments in which you develop strength and become a better person. If at least now and then you see life as a puzzle, where every one of us counts, then you’ll have no trouble understanding that all the steps we make, we make for a reason, and every decision we make is the right one. At least they’re right for us. Don’t ever let fear of failure guide you; maybe you’ll make it, maybe you won’t, but the experience is the only thing that matters in any scenario. I once told myself I am hurt, my soul is broken, my burden of experience is too heavy, but I later figured out that it wasn’t true. I am healthy and healed, I am discovering myself again and I am ready for every new beginning. So everything might not find its place straight away, but it will balance outsoon and it’s going to be good.
It would be wise to thank ourselves at the end of the day for not giving in, for understanding that we don’t get satisfaction from a good relationship, an excellent job or amount of money we make, but from within ourselves. Every now and then make yourself the priority. It won’t make you selfish, because it’s necessary. And maybe you feel like you don’t fit in anywhere or with anyone, but it’s your advantage, one you may never have considered before. It’suselessbeing stuck aroundthe people who want to judge you because of your past, because people change, they move on and they have new stories to tell. After all, we only have one book of life, it would be a shame to neglect chapters only to dothe world a favor while keepingquiet and invisible so we wouldn’t bother anyone. Eyes are of no use,if the brain is blind. And the eyes aren’t here only to see, buttheyalso enableyou tohave a vision. Do you have it?
Don’t spoil a great day by talking about a bad yesterday. Just let it go, because it’s all energy, it’sall magic dust, which we can catch. Or miss.
