Yet another year is coming to an end and here I sit down, recollecting my thoughts, recollecting the whole year, the very first day of this year. It surely has been a tough year, with all the ups and downs, with those emotional whirlwinds, and those tornados awaking out of nowhere when I thought it’s all over. But we get caught up in the miseries of the life, we let the same problem ruin us again and again for years when we could easily just say, “so what”.
“I broke up”, so what?
“I gave myself away to the wrong guy”, so what?
“I am a success but I’m still alone”, so what?
“My career is a mess”, so what?
“My mother doesn’t love me”, so what?
We often forget that weakness is a great thing, strength, it is nothing actually! When a man is born, he is weak, feeble and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive, he is full of “beliefs”, beliefs that made him hard, that broke him. Have you seen a small plant that is growing? It’s tender and pliant, but when it’s dry and hard it withers, it dies. Hardness and strength that we often love are the companions of death! Pliancy and feebleness express the life, freshness of a being. What has hardened will never survive. With this thought, I would want to wrap up this year, a year which has made me weak, and yet taught me the essence of life!
