At peace with myself

Hello, my dear readers! Today is Friday. I don’t know how but after the quarantine lockdown the days appear to move on slower. I notice the day that goes through and I am eager for tomorrow.

As you know from my latest posts, these two weeks have been rough for me and I underwent certain changes. I managed to come more at peace with myself and accept the changes that life brought upon me.

If at the beginning I was confused and did not understand why we’re all of these changes necessary and why was the break down requested, now I come to realize that everything happened for a reason.

Things change, friends leave and life doesn’t stop from anybody, just because we want it. And it’s totally normal to be affected, nothing is more painful to the human mind than a sudden change.

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.

Lao Tzu used to say that life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. It’s important to not resist them as we are inviting sorrow in. Let’s accept reality as it is and let’s let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.
