Not everything happens according to "the plan" you may have devised for yourself. Life is a fickle thing. It enjoys throwing challenges at us and all we can really do are two things, a) crib and cry about how unfair life is and how you are the only person who is struggling to thrive or b) you could embrace the lessons you've been given to learn and grow through whatever it is that is intended for you.
In times of need, when no light seems to shine on you and all the doors seem to have been glued shut, it is only upon you to smile through the process of it. It's only on you, to nurture your hurting heart and body whilst working towards your goals without falling into an abyss of self-pity. Maybe you could just sit quietly for a few minutes or have your favourite comfort food or meditate to sort your thoughts out and get a true sense of self.
"Learn to adopt a positive attitude about things that happen in life because at the end of the day, it's your perspective that holds all the importance."
Only if you look close enough, Darling, there's sunshine woven in the strands of your dark brown hair Your heart may feel heavy now but there's feather like touch to it Your slightest of grin can make even the darkest of woods go weak in the knees The warmth of your soul is felt through a simple hug you give on early mornings when sleep takes over you. The grace, the gentleness, of your being is not just poetry in action, it's the eternal love, which people can only try to unravel.
And this new year, Have courage and grow Emerge from the seedlings you've potted so lovingly, spread your roots deep and grow as beautifully as you can. Let go of everything and everyone who doesn't make you happy because once you realise that it is nothing but happiness that matters in life, everything that contrasts this seems futile. Nurture and nourish your mind, body, heart and soul. Have love deep within your bones, have integrity and have respect for yourself. Load up on courage and love every morning you wake up and before going to bed every night, tell yourself to "Have courage and be kind."
You're not just home to me, my love. You're the feeling my heart takes shelter in, you're the emotion that gives my very being a chance at having a lifetime of genuine happiness. You're not just home to me, you're the one person I want to share everything with that makes our souls, marry in love till the end of time and after. "You're not just home to me, you're everything in between and beyond."
"And yet again, it's about the unfathomable depth of my heart, my soul and my very core. For if it wasn't, I wouldn't look for blank pages to doodle a mess in an attempt to portray my emotions I wouldn't search for missing colours to paint the feelings that are stuck to the walls of my beating heart I wouldn't shed tears which I know are all dried up I wouldn't crave affection like lungs need oxygen. I would just be happy to have such depth."
I'll be singing songs of love, beside the burning stars. I'll be sleeping in the lap of clouds, both light and grey alike. Every morning I'd swing on sunrays and dance under the silver lining of heaviest clouds. I won't be waiting for you. I'll sing in glee and dance with me. Come, meet me there, if you wish. You showed me my way home. And you're always welcome here.
