I know there are days when you feel directionless
I know you have thoughts about quitting yourself
I know you have nights of discomfort and utter silence
I also know there are days when you feel like sunshine
I know your eyes instantly light up watching your little brother smile
I know the beaming smile when you smell coffee
I know the sense of pride you own when you hit the five-mile mark
But why am I pining for more? What is this “more”?
Let me remind you, what you are going through is life. It tries knocking you down every day because it senses your strength. But, It treats you with small moments of happiness. Fear not, you are normal. You are just like every other being who craves to see the soul in everything.
I admit you have your flaws and imperfections. I know how you like things to move your way at times. I know the temper you possess. You love too much, care too much, give too much. There are days you try so hard and then again, there are those times you give up easily. But I’m here to tell you, you do not have to change anytime soon. Your good qualities balance it all and that makes you one hell of a strong person. You wake up every day to fight your inner demon but, you also live through it.
My dear self, you aren’t sad, you are just human. Let your light in and watch it do wonders to you. Give yourself a chance. Practice the act of standing up for yourself and being firm in your beliefs. There will be people who do not understand your journey and that’s OKAY.
All that hurt you have in you? Make art with it.
Write. Bake. Groove. Live.
After all, that is what life really needs: spreading your light in times of darkness.
