” Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature–the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. ” Rachel Carson
It’s so incredibly easy to believe in fate when everything is going along perfectly. The real challenge in life is to believe in fate when things are falling apart. Sometimes you have to stand taller than you ever have before and shout back, you need to tell fate it’s fucked you now it needs to open the next door, if only a little.
So in a moment of utter madness I went to the woods and just screamed, I screamed every tiny bit of frustration out of my body. I screamed until no sound come out of my mouth. Then I just collapsed to my knees and breathed, I sat there and took in the world.
Sometimes you believe in fate and when it’s not what you expected you forget that she’s just stopping you from going down a path that wasn’t made for you. And no matter how much you think she is wrong, she’s not. The truth is after every set back we always come back stronger, we always end up in a better place.
Now this might not be fate this might just be our own internal strength pushing us forward, pushing us to be the best we can be! But if it takes believing in fate to get us there then thats absolutely ok.
Next time you want to scream just scream, get it out, scream about everything that is bothering you! And know with uncertain doubt that everything will be ok and just relax until fate guides you to your next big adventure.
After my little outburst in the woods I felt refreshed with a new sense of direction and purpose. Most importantly I felt ready to face my next challenge head on and kick its butt!
And after all that screaming I couldn’t pass a chocolate cake and not stop for a slice, after all I didn’t want to be rude, plus I’m eating my emotions right now so the one piece might actually have been three!
