Somebody told me – If you are going through a difficult phase in your life, Remember that you’re not alone. Nobody has it easy. Some days can feel like a burden Like there’s no way out. Sadness, tears, anger, frustration. Like life is unfair for no reason at all.
Then she told me to give it time. It’s also about giving things time, To run their course. For them to pass. So you can heal. Everything eventually gets better. It always does and you know that it’s true.
This isn’t the first time, You were expected to face a challenging circumstance. This isn’t the first time you had to brave. You have done this before, Then why the uncertainty now. Like all the other times, this will pass too. Wait for the morning For the sun to shine with new rays of hope. And just like that, Your day will seem a whole lot better than yesterday. She said with a smile.
It’s eight o’clock in the morning and I get a notification that my order is ready for pick up. I’m already here, wearing a lavender-colored floral dress and an extra smile as I stand outside admiring my favorite place. I take a deep breath, push open the heavy oak doors, and re-enter The Willowvilla. The familiar aroma of freshly brewed tea and baked food makes me feel like I’m home once again.
Some days, the passion to create is so strong, That everything around seems like a flash of inspiration. From the morning cup of tea, Sunshine on the feet, Crumpled sheets, A smiling person on the streets, An empty blank sheet.
If you have to get obsessed, then obsess over, reading books without any breaks walking for hours without knowing where you’re going watching the stars and wondering how it would be like to be in space playing with animals and taking care obsess over loving yourself every single day.
I am just sad, a sad lad. My eyelids feel heavy, brain is foggy. I’m in that state where I can think of a hundred things and make myself sad. Like, ah the weather is so beautiful but I can’t go travelling. I want to go for a run but I’m feeling lazy and my legs are tired. I feel dirty, I need to shower but it’s too cold to get wet. I wish my friends lived next door. I wish people could understand my deep inner emotions. Stuff like that you know, but who wants to go down that lane.
What can I do instead?
Make a sandwich? Done. Drink a cup of hot coffee? Done. Watch a crazy TV show? Done. Wash my laundry? Done, I just need to remove them from the dryer. Read a book? Done. Play video games? Done.
I guess this is another problem, I’m too good, I’m too cool, I’m also a fool.
Okay, I think I am feeling better now!. Time to go and throw out the trash. Trash all the sadness and negativity that’s pulling me down.
That was easy, all I had to do was dwell on those feelings, write them down, shout them out, and understand what’s wrong. Now that I’ve given those emotions some attention I feel I am ready to take on the world. But hey, I am just a lad, not a sad one anymore, a normal lad.
These are not the best times, days can feel cold and lonely, but please know that you are not alone. Today is Valentine’s Day so let us embrace the precious things around. Look outside the window and see if anything brings a smile, a funny-shaped cloud in the sky, a cute lil pup, snow on the ground, a tree that is always around, a friendly familiar face, or bright sunny skies.
If not, light a candle, make yourself a hot cup of coffee, watch a movie that you like, and turn on some fairy lights. Let us not clutter the mind with too many thoughts and be thankful and grateful for the things around. Go out for a walk or spend a few calm moments with yourself, enjoying some deep breaths.
