Moving On [❁]Friday, April 19, 2013
It's been one of those weeks when I was not at my best being. So many things have happened, so many changes were made and I am having a hard time adapting to them. It's like I've been so used to how things worked in the past that these big waves of changes are carrying me away from my sanity.
For the past few days, I felt rebellious. I wanted to snap out of the disciplines that I've been practicing for decades. I wanted to break the rules. I didn't want anything to do with some of the important things in my life. I didn't want to handle responsibilities. All I wanted was to be free.
I've been rereading this book by M. Scott Peck entitled The Road Less Traveled. It helped me cope up with the difficulties that I've had in the past, and I am hoping it would do the same to me again now. The opening lines of the book's first chapter goes:
Life is difficult.
This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.
Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.Also, the saying "Happiness is a choice" is what inspires me to move on in life. I perfectly know what will make me smile and I would definitely make that choice, for the love of myself and my future.
I guess I really need a decent vacation. I want to slow down and be able to look around and enjoy the sceneries that life has to offer.
