This morning I removed the few Christmas decorations we had in our apartment. I had arranged some spruce branches into a blue glass vase to represent a miniature Christmas tree. Dried out needles were falling out as I removed the branches from the vase. I got annoyed of the mess created.
Mess, disorder and incompleteness always annoys me.
In the beginning of 2018, I wrote on the title: Tackle the hectic - A year towards tranquility. My goal was to implement more elements of tranquility to my life and escape the busy beehive.
I of course failed miserably. There are always needles falling out of branches in life and creating little messes here and there - and learning to cope with that is a life-long journey.
And learning to see the beauty around the mess.
I might have failed in finding my inner zen but I did find a lot of happiness and growth.
So perhaps a more proper goal would be to be more forgiving to myself? Learn to take deep breaths, let go of fears of failure and trust that everything will work out.
Because they always do. This year was a perfect example of that.
So I shall yet again put on my rose-colored glasses and always believe something wonderful is about to happen.
Here’s to an amazing 2019!
