Warning: Rain may lead to crying…

*sigh* It’s like a monsoon outside!! Flooding everywhere…indoors listening to music…

Cry as hard as you want to. But make sure, when you stop crying, you’ll NEVER cry for the SAME reason again.

 

“She’s my kind of rain
Like love from a drunken sky
Confetti falling down all night
She’s my kind of rain…”

Forecast: Chance of Rain…

Just finished watching the movie, “Swinging with the Finkels”‘…and parts of it resonated with me…

“The only real obstacle to man’s inability to commit is man himself.”
“It’s not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.”

For people who always think the grass is greener on the other side…If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is…now!

With so many advancements in technology, our lifestyles have been completely transformed. So many choices.  Sometimes when we have so many choices we become restless. We tend to not settle on what we already have or stay satisfied with what we’ve got because we’ll always be wondering about the next big thing. It’s called the grass is always greener syndrome. So many of us tend to think someone else is having a better time elsewhere; we can make ourselves miserable by thinking about the unknown in our endless quest to find happiness. We lie awake at night torturing ourselves over what we should do next, wondering if we are missing something big. We feel we are wasting our lives if we are not doing something more important.

There’s also this sense of urgency, this sense of time and pressure we place on ourselves. Sometimes we feel like we are running out of time and should constantly be doing something greater othwerwise we consider ourselves failures. Then there’s the whole idea that we are somehow special and meant for grandeur; that somehow our lives were destined to be thrilling, adventurous, and hugely successful.

And when we wake up and just realize that our lives are not turning out the way we expected or dreamt…well we find ourselves in crisis, don’t we?!  Perhaps a mid-life crisis. We get depressed; we want more; we get that grass is greener syndrome. We become unhappy, disatisfied, and spend all of our time and energy focusing on what we don’t have rather than counting our blessings. Trust me, I have been there – earlier than I expected in life too; most likely brought about from my illness and having to accept my limited opportunities early on. And I have learned that one is truly not happier on the other side of the grass…the grass is just as green. Focusing on what we don’t have is a definite recipe for disaster. It leads to a miserable, lonely existence and causes us to forget what is most important…the present – the here and now.

As John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans”. So very true!

With so many choices and opportunities available to us, sometimes we tend to ignore what’s actually happening around us in the present. We forget the whole how to be happy; we miss the point of what happiness really means – acceptance, peace of mind, forgiveness, being mindful.

Don’t get me wrong, opportunities are great, sometimes wish I had more, but there comes a point where we need to accept our choices, decisions and our lives. Embrace all that comes along. Definitely go out and see the world and try to enjoy all that life has to offer. But whenever you feel yourself losing focus and wondering what if, bring yourself back to the present, Enjoy the moments today! Happiness to me is no longer about where I live, or the material things I have; it really is simply sometimes about smelling the roses, taking a deep breath, feeling your heartbeat…

All we have is the right now, So let’s forget the past; try not to worry too much about the future; truly find something in each new day that makes us smile even if for a moment. Stop thinking the grass is greener – because it truly isn’t…and without the rain, it will still turn brown….embracing ME!


My musings…

In the words of Andre Breton, “All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name”…this is how I have been feeling…something so close, slightly unclear, out of reach, nearly in my grasp, but I can’t quite put my finger on it…continues to stretch away from me out of sight…*sigh*

Definitely a T rambling kind of night especially with the thunderstorm raging outside.  Ah the written word…Words make love with one another…

Learning that I need to let go…and that it is okay to fall in love again…it’s okay to believe in love again.  Nights like this definitely make me realize that I wish I had someone close, near me, to snuggle up with.

Seems I’ve been playing on the safe side
Building walls around my heart to save me,
But it’s time for me to let it go

Yeah, I’m ready to feel now
No longer am I afraid of the fall down
It must be time to move on now
Without the fear of how it might end
I guess I’m ready to love again – LADY ANTEBELLUM

“Ready To Love Again” – Lady Antebellum

Someday, I know I will completely forget the hurt, the many reasons I cried, and finally put those behind me who caused the pain.  I will finally realize that the secret of being free is not betrayal nor revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way and their own time. After all, what matters is not the first, but the last chapter of our lives; which shows how well we lived our lives.  So I am once again letting go of all my fears, giving myself permission to be happy, setting myself free…free to be me, and not be so afraid to fall in love again.

The only way to forget, to let go is to accept; and the only way to move on, is to keep looking ahead…looking for my sun on the cloudiest of days…peeking through just to make me smile.  I know it’s out there.

“…actions, speak louder…There’s some kind of storm brewing…Now that I’ve done my time, I need to move on and I need you to try
Cause we’re out of goodbyes…We’re out of goodbyes, we’re out of goodbyes…”

Maroon 5 ft. Lady Antebellum- Out Of Goodbyes

Always…♥


Raindrops are like my tears…falling…in my heart…

♥ Maybe raindrops are the bravest thing created by God. Want to know why?  They are never afraid of falling just like me and my tears…♥  So its raining, and I cry…cry from from sheer exhaustion, utter confusion, profound sadness…will to strive for better.

When it rains, most birds fly for shelter; but the eagle alone avoids the rain by flying above all the clouds.  Lesson to be learned:  We should be like the eagle and believe we can fly above the storm of life…it’s been a bad week…I need to find my inner eagle.

Sometimes we need to be hurt in order to grow.  We must lose in order to gain.  As, some lessons are learned best through pain…as the rain falls and allows the true beauty of spring time shine through…flowers bloom, petals glisten…

I am trying to focus on the good – even though the outside world might be raining, if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you…must keep faith!

Wise saying:  An umbrella can’t stop the rain, but can make us stand in the rain while it protects us from the rain. Confidence may not bring success, but it gives us the courage and power to face any challenges.

Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again ~ Alex Tan.

Sometimes it’s better to break down in tears and show your emotions than to keep it all inside and not tell a single soul.

I want, need, to believe that the happiest people are the ones who can say, “When all is going wrong, when the clouds get in the way, that a little unhappiness must balance the joys and that a bit of sadness has its place, too”.  These people know the balance of nature’s way…nothing grows where only the sun shines…

A lonely tear an Angel shed.
It fell to earth one day.
It touched upon a heart in pain,
And sent it on its way.
The love of others going on.
It’s hard, for those it leaves;
But spring time, brings the joy of promise.
And in quiet solitude, I shed many a lonely tear.

Sometimes what are being lived are the tears…I cry…cry with all the strength I have because with every tear, every tear is accompanied by a prayer into heaven…

Tears streaming down my face, falling down my cheeks, as my eyes burn, reflecting the pain of our last encounter…as I sit here and its raining sorrow and I just know I will remain awake until tomorrow. ♥mm♥

Ah raindrops keep falling…raindrops fall, pelting against the pavement, as tears continue to fall down my cheeks, melting away at my heart….♥
