life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once
Turns out donating 8 big bags of clothes to the needy and less fortunate and sorting out another 5 bags to see which ones will go into storage space and to the new home has been absolutely therapeutic for my soul this week despite the physical exhaustion.
That, furniture shopping & spending the late night of Saturday going through & deciding on paint colours for our new abode have done wonders in distracting my affected state of mind (read: almost ruined my weekend), when I received news on Friday night about yet another uncomfortable and beyond-my-control situation being thrown in my face.
After the series of events that have been happening one after another in the last 2-3 weeks, I’m pretty much stupefied by what else life has to offer – in both the good & the bad. There are events that have taken me so high, I can feel my pulsation enthusiastically beating alongside renewed energy and goals. And then there are events which weigh so heavy on my heart despite how trivial it seems, I wished that I could do better & stronger in handling my emotions.
But like sifu has told me time & again – life isn’t meant to be easy. I seem to have allowed self-fulfilling prophecies to take place in both the positive and negative space too easily. And the people around me seem to be creating a situation that is not in my control. Ultimately, I need to learn how to solve problems on my own terms and stay on course. How do you deal with or handle your low moments in life?
