Daily Prompt: Dancing
It’s 1am and I should be studying, but I think my writer’s block has, FINALLY LEFT THE BUILDING!
For the past few months, I have been a stern believer in destiny and everything happening for a reason and it’s simply because I started seeing the connection between everything that was happening in my life, but one thing I have had to accept about this belief is that, it is not for you to understand neither is for you to see, destiny does not want to be traced and therefore acts in sneaky and secretive ways. Do you ever ask yourself why you may have learned something a few months ago, something that was, in that moment, unrelated to anything in your life, but then a few months later, you find yourself in a situation where you are equipped to deal with a particular situation or you’re able to engage in a conversation that you would not have been able to engage in if it were not for that skill that you learned a few months ago, and I know this example is pretty vague, but I have come to realise that life prepares you for your moments of downfall as well as your moments of happiness and success. It’s not for you to understand neither is it for you to recognise the little breadcrumbs destiny leaves.
If it were not for 2016 (one hell of crappy year), I do not think I would be able to fully appreciate all the goodness that has surrounded me this year, it may not have been perfect but I have been so grateful for the peace and happiness that fills my soul this year. I discovered this when, one night, my best friend and I were drinking in his backyard, celebrating my birthday and he asked me, “So what is Lucy thankful for, and what is she looking forward to in her new year?”, it was then I realised how much of a beautiful year this has been and how if it were not for the breakdown I had in 2016, my growth would not be as significant as it is, neither would I be able to recognise how this has been one heck of a beautiful year, and it’s in the little things, it’s always in the detail, the breadcrumbs destiny leaves.
It’s so easy for us to get so caught up in the happiness that we forget to be thankful, humans are greedy by nature but what use is the good moments if you are not appreciative of them, stretch out that goodness the same way you squeeze out that little bit of toothpaste out of the tube, in a way it makes the good moments last longer and the bad moments not that bad, it’s something that I have been trying for the past few months and it truly has worked, whether you’re thanking the Man upstairs, another Godly being or the Universe, learn to let go of the feeling of entitlement because Earth owes you absolutely nothing, but it gives you just enough to get you through and when you’re going through your season of abundant harvest, don’t be greedy, share it, plant the seed of goodness in everyone and in your time of drought, destiny will come through, she always does.
Ecclesiastes 3 – King James Version (KJV)
“ To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
Well, I guess I got my writing streak back, and there is a lot we need to talk about …
