seriously considering filling my pockets with glitter and whenever someone near me says something really stupid or rude i’ll just reach into my pocket with a dead expression and release the glitter into the sky above their head and watch it shower over them like a baptism of stupid
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore
Black and white. Dull. Gloomy. Dreary. I have to say that this is probably one of the main reasons why some people hate it when it rains. Aside from flooding and getting stranded on the road, who would not miss the sunshine peeping through the window, the blue sky, and the different shades of the environment which is more dominant when the sun is up? That’s why even rains would mean cold weather, I’d still be a lover of the biggest star in our solar system—SUN.
But if asked about one thing I love about the rainy season? It’s the fact that rain is temporary. You don’t wake up to the sound of raindrops 365 days a year. It’s seasonal. Temporary. It’s probably the reason why hardships have always been associated with storms. You do not live a life of full of failure and wake up without a mission. Rather, obstacles on your way to fulfilling your mission serves as the temporary storm that is yet to pass and be conquered.
I have travelled halfway along the bumpy roads, the obstacles, and hardships on my quest to my life’s purpose. The days may be dark because of the storm but I will go on. There is no telling how many miles I will have to run while chasing a dream. In life, there are only few obstacles which would let you hit rock bottom—the people who degrade you, failure, and lack of faith. These three things are the primary reason why I get back up every time I hit rock bottom. I have to prove myself and succeed and never ever lose faith that someday, I will become the highest mountain of all and happily look down on my oppressors.
No matter how devastating a storm could be, I believe that one day, everything will be full of life again. Yellows and greens…red and orange… My world would be brighter than yesterday… And when I get there, I’d make sure it’ll burn your eyes just like what Oprah Winfrey said. It’s a long road but it’s worth it.
Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind.
“Do you know I keep trying to run away from this closeness we have? Its because I’m afraid, afraid that I’ll fall in love with you and ruin this amazing friendship we have because I am just so good at screwing social relationships with guys up. I’m afraid you’re going to push me away if I do…
