Challenge Or Comfort?

The music caresses my ears; the rum soothes my anxieties.

I look up to the sky; the clouds’ patient journey toward me from the horizon causing a tear to well in my eye.

One by one they drift gracefully across life’s ceiling never pausing to ask why it is they must continue. And yet through their humble action we look at them and marvel.

As the sky fades darker I notice the night’s first star. The day’s bright light and my thirst for sunshine and tanning time made me forget their simple beauty. Only now that I have seen the evening’s first are my eyes opened to the many more that multiply its spectacle.

The clouds continue to roll on by; planes ascending through their being; passenger’s unlikely to be sharing the thoughts traversing my mind as I look up.

In the distance the ocean continues to whisper to me seeking my company again. I think of how lucky I am to now be so near to its calming presence. Though still my anxiety peaks.

I ask myself: Why this continued feeling of unease? Things are good.

Though perhaps ‘good’ isn’t what I am seeking? Perhaps what I am really seeking is challenge and uncertainty?

Perhaps.

  1. It’s a strange thought, but some of us are born to be restless, to live in the wild – free and always ready to go. This makes sitting still, routine etc quite difficult. If this is how you’re feeling, it’s helpful to remind yourself about what you’re working towards.

    1. I agree. It feels like I’ve arrived at my destination to soon. I still have so much of the world to travel and so many more challenges to overcome to fully appreciate where I have ended up. But enjoying it for now!
