It’s been a few weeks of silence in this space here. The summer holidays are a slow time and sometimes you have to take a break.
BUT: I have been working on my writing, in a different form. More exciting news on that will come soon!
They’re always the same questions:
What’s up with you?
Any major breakthrough lately?
I have become tired of giving the same dissatisfied answer time and time again.
I’m in the process of moving to a different city for a job, and yet I’m not. Apartment hunting is more difficult and exhausting than expected and many days I’m just frustrated.
I’m in the middle of starting a new chapter of my life, and yet I’m not. My next steps are not clearly mapped out yet, so it’s quite hard to say goodbye and move on.
I’m still rediscovering why I believe what I believe, and yet I’m not. Often I just walk on shaky ground and the more questions I ask, the less answers I find.
Leaving a place, people or beliefs behind without a clear destination is pretty hard. It seems to be in the human nature that we want to know where we’re going.
But life doesn’t work that way.
Most of the time we have no idea where we’re going, the path in front of us is blurred and all we see are shadows in the distance.
And yet, we have no choice but to walk forward. Life is meant to be lived and not be regretted in retrospect.
All we got is trust.
Trust in a second chance every morning.
Trust in an ever faithful travel companion. Trust in the bigger picture with an eternal destination.
Let’s move forward. Let’s stumble, crawl or run. Let’s cling to life and whatever it has to offer.
Writing for Five Minute Friday today.
