~To a much beloved friend~
It turned out a little cheesy, but I don’t care: Embrace the good moments! :)
There are days where you just feel bad and you can’t explain why.
I don’t like these days… I guess nobody does, really.
I also think that those days inspire the process of writing, drawing, making art… But I don’t know why that is.
I mean it’s weird, isn’t it? Why would we feel the need to share our pain? To drag others down with us? To get comfort? To get help?
Sometimes maybe just to get it out and get some distance.
I often find myself writing on those days because it helps me process my thoughts and takes some weight off me.
But you know what? Today was a good day! Not a great one, not one that only made me feel awesome, but simply a good one.
I worked a lot by myself without feeling alone. I feel like I have accomplished something, and I could really enjoy my breaks because I spent them with a dear friend.
Isn’t it wonderful how good friends can make you feel? I find it fascinating, and I hope I can return that simple feeling of belonging that is actually not simple at all, but because those people just make everything easy (or at least easier), even that weird feeling I can’t explain seems simple.
This might be a random post, but I have decided to start writing as often about good days as I do about bad ones.
It’s not that I always have more bad ones and that’s why I write a lot about heavier thoughts. Not at all! But somehow it’s easier to create tension and profoundness in more serious texts.
Unfortunately it also makes you cherish the nice ones less because you don’t relive them through writing.
Shouldn’t it be the other way round? Shouldn’t we surround ourselves with happy moments and memories for as long as we can?
I think we should try, and it is my new goal to take the time to write about the profoundness of a beautiful day, a good day, and even just a normal day.
Profoundness can be found in little things. It doesn’t always have to be these deep, depressing thoughts. A content feeling brings lightness to the profound, and the two create a soft, touching atmosphere of bliss.
Can you feel it? Close your eyes, and think of a nice moment. It doesn’t have to be something huge; it can be a memory of a walk in the rain (in movies it always rains when people are sad, so we associate rain with bad days. Stop that! Rain can be a beautiful thing, too! :) ), a funny cloud that made you smile, a feeling of happiness you cannot explain… Whatever it may be, breathe it in, let it flow through you, and feel the relaxation of your body and spirit.
Draw energy from that to shine from within, and share your beautiful smile to make others feel great as well!
