You know that phase in life when you feel content and don’t feel the need of running behind anyone or anything? I feel like I am there, right now. I have arrived. I am good… life is good. I often tell my husband that I feel content. This certainly doesn’t imply that I have no desire to learn something new or go somewhere new, or meet someone new or level myself up. This simply means that that special happy feeling deep inside my heart, it keeps me grounded.. leveled.
So back to the post, the only reason of being MIA was that I had no thoughts to share here. This certainly doesn’t mean that I had nothing exciting going on in my life, on the contrary, I am loving life as it is.. I just did not feel the need to pen anything, ya know! I was just doing ok in my small world. So why this post, you may ask? I don’t know.. I just felt like writing, so here I am. Everything I have ever posted here has always been directly from my heart. And today, my heart is content. Yes, in the middle of all the chaos that this world is facing, I am trying to find my Center. Leaving you with this beautiful poem –
By Ha Jin
You must hold your quiet center,
where you do what only you can do.
If others call you a maniac or a fool,
just let them wag their tongues.
If some praise your perseverance,
don’t feel too happy about it—
only solitude is a lasting friend.
You must hold your distant center.
Don’t move even if earth and heaven quake.
If others think you are insignificant,
that’s because you haven’t held on long enough.
As long as you stay put year after year,
eventually you will find a world
beginning to revolve around you.
