I am back and no time is also back! Since mid June work has taken over most of my time again, or should I say my energy? I spend seven and a half hours a day in front of the laptop fully focused on reading and more reading. You can all imagine that once I log out the last thing I am willing to be doing is keep on staring at a screen. I only feel like going outside to take care of my plants and get lost in the pleasure and peace of some fresh air, flowers and birds singing. Needless to say, guilt has occasionally turned up, just to kindly remind me that my blog has been left unattended. Sometimes, we just need to accept there is nothing we can do and there is no space for feeling guilty! It is definitely not worth it!
Unexpectedly unexpected, I have the chance to sit down and write today. I am going to make the most of out it so I can finish, polish and publish my blog. Candle on my table, soft music playing on, a cup of tea together with a piece of homemade chocolate and yogurt cake, dark threatening clouds, smell of rain in the air, time to put all my thoughts and ideas together. Perfect setting to let my imagination lead my inspiration. All those words that have been boiling in my mind for the last couple of months are ready to be released. So excited!
How many times do we say to ourselves “I wasn’t expecting that”? Life is full of surprises. Because when we think there is no way out in a tough situation, when we get stuck in a place we do not belong to, when we feel nothing is going to change because we do not deserve it, when we believe that we do not have any other options rather than carrying on, when we are convinced that no matter how hard we try we will still not succeed, when we surrender to our self-pity gremlin… Live proves us wrong! Isn’t that amazing? Unexpectedly unexpected our dreams come true, our wishes become reality and our hopes turn into our present. This is the magic of life!
All our worries, negative thoughts and despair disappear in the blink of an eye, as if they had not existed. We cannot help it but ask ourselves if the worrying and overthinking was needed or even worth it. As time goes by, probably due to more experience and a thicker skin. I have learnt to let things flow avoiding that unnecessary stressful uncertainty. I have to admit that every now and then I find myself trapped in a cul-de-sac situation where nothing seems to be making sense. I just take a deep breath, remind myself of all I have achieved and smile, while saying to myself that I will be grand. That change, that job, that chance will be there for me in due course. Because things always work out somehow. Because nothing lasts forever. Because hope is the last thing ever lost!
Never let the future rule your present, otherwise you will end up not living your life. Focus on the here and now, work hard for your dreams and… Unexpectedly unexpected that door will open, that impossible will become possible and what seemed out of reach will be there for you!
