Taking A Breather

One of the things I miss most nowadays is the quiet time alone. Those were the moments of silence and solitude that I used to reflect and contemplate on life. Although I have figured out how to manage many aspects of my life, there are as many that I am still seeking answers for. Nothing is absolute. The only constant is change. Very often, I am slow in adapting.

The direction of my journey has already been charted. The sail has been unfurled. The voyage has begun. Yet, there are still many unanswered questions. I know where I am heading to but I am not sure how the journey will be like. What lies between the destination and where I am now are unfamiliar territories. I know that is the same for everyone else but the apprehension persists.

For today, I am going to spend the remaining hours freeing up my cluttered mind. Hopefully, I can discover again the serenity that once gave birth to so many wonderful inspirations. I am apt to forget the dictum of this blog – Living one day at a time. In attempting to do too many things at once most of the time, I accomplished nothing in the end. For now, I am going to stop and smell the roses. I have almost forgotten how wonderful its fragance was.

One thought on “Taking A Breather”

  1. You know I am also born a worrywart 😀 But I constantly reminding myself to just enjoy the moment in life, live your dream and don’t dream your life. Regardless of your physical diasabilty. I see you as a very capable person in many ways especially your writing skills and how you manage your life nad how you try to also share it with other people, and that takes a lot of courage and greatness. You should give yourself a pat on the back. The new year is still new, let’s toast to a better and peaceful world glaobally ia a bigger sense of thing. With aloha

    Thank you, thank you, thank you 😀
