The wind blows but I couldn’t feel anything. Not even close to shivering. Is this how am I supposed to feel at the moment? Empty? Should I call myself Shady Girl from now on? No, I believe this is just some nostalgic emotion that will last for a few days. All I need is a spiritual awakening.
Walking in the busy streets of Makati reminds me that no matter how noisy life can be, it has to move on. Life is music – it can be mellow or there are times when my ears don’t want hear anything but this is just a phase in my life that anyone can go through. Yes, I told myself that this will be the last time I’m going to feel sorry for myself. When a bus is stuck in traffic, what does the driver do? He changes his route so that the passengers would not be late for work.
According to my favorite poet Robert Frost, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” It’s not about how long it will take me to reach my destination. It’s about how I travel to arrive at that place where I can tell myself, “Yes! I actually made it!”
Despite the terrible phenomenon that occurred in my life, I am still here, living my life because I know that everything happens for a reason. I may have lost some people who became a part of my life but that doesn’t mean I should stop moving on. Whatever they are doing right now or wherever they are, I want to thank them for making me reflect on things that I thought was simple.
This is not the end of the road for me. I will be fine and I should be. I’ll stop thinking about stuff that have no place in my closet (yes, that’s so me) because I’m going to meet new people and enjoy life to the fullest without limitations. I’m twenty and I want to create fun-filled memories – not for others but for myself. This time, it’s going to be me.
Thanks for the memories and now it’s time for me to let them go along with the wind. There’s a rainbow always after the rain right? God is with everybody.
