Sometimes things aren’t always black and white. If they were, life would probably be very simple. The only downside to that is life would be very unexciting.
Lets talk about some things that aren’t so black and white.
The mind and heart….When they are ONE, working together in harmony, things are so beautiful, magical. You smile, you’re happy, life is as it should be. At other times they are each others worst enemy. Your mind is the logical part of your body while the heart is the most sensitive. They don’t always agree. When there’s a war between the two, oh my goodness. You’re broken and confused. So frustrated. You’re torn inside, lost in your own world. The only time you talk to yourself so much is when they don’t agree. It’s no longer the wonderful sounds of the waves flowing and birds whistling. It’s waves crashing, thrashing with full force, angry. This is not a time we welcome to say the least.
The black and white way of things can be a lovely bliss or full of despair. Cry or laugh? We were created with emotions so I suppose we should feel them all? Pain isn’t very appealing to me though. Heart break either..so why do we have to feel these things again? Who knows.
I am a true believer in karma and that everything happens for a reason. A lot of the times when upsetting things happen, we don’t understand why. What’s the purpose really? I’m sure you’ve been through something tough and questioned why God, the Universe or whatever it is you believe in, is doing this to you.
Through the process, from beginning and in between, it’s difficult. Our emotions are so raw. Our mind isn’t thinking clearly. Rocks are tumbling, breaking. As they pound and pound on your shoulders, you wonder if there will be a way out. We try to stand tall and strong, but sometimes the weight of the world is so heavy we fall. Rocks lay perfectly in a mess all over us. We can hardly breath, unable to see any light. But then wait…you’re still here right? So am I. Somehow in all the debris, there was still strength. We made it out with some brusises and scars. Some fade completely away and others not much at all. BUT, we’re still here. We made it through and there was a reason for it. Towards the end we start to see things a little more clearly. After the fact, we realize why what happened, happened. Whether the outcome be good or bad, there was a reason. And no it doesn’t always make sense. We don’t always get all the answers 😦
Some things are unbearable. Not everyone is able to move on and I cry for them. I’m sorry that life has been so unforgiving. For me and most of you reading this, we’ve been able to make it through. I’m sure we’ll have more hard times to come. All we can do is do our best. We have to remember broken hearts mend in time. Scars fade eventually. Problems can be solved. We just have to remind ourselves that there will always be a new day, new people, new experiences and new adventures. As we go though trials and tribulations, remember they are moments. We’re strong people. We were created with courage as well as resilience.
Life can’t always be black and white. I guess the gray helps us grow. There is good in that right?
