Sun setting amidst the ups and downs of the waves......
As I walked along the beach, the waves caressed my feet. The feeling was so soothing and relaxing, I felt I could go on walking….
I enjoy walking on the beach with the small waves just touching my feet. It makes me feel peaceful and content as it helps me forget the tensions in life…..
We actually do not realize how stressed we are in our lives until something happens to make us think so. For some it could be sickness or diagnosis of some illness or just a breakdown. We just go along doing our duties endlessly not understanding that life is made up of a balance of ups and downs just like the waves….
The waves come dashing moving up and down in a rhythmic motion. Don’t you think life is the same? There are ups and then downs and high tides and low tides. The beach and the waves always remind me of life…..
We enjoy a day at the beach; enjoy the waves dancing up and down….
Are we enjoying our lives similarly? It is so difficult to accept the low tides and the downs in life. We must accept that just like the waves in the sea, our life is also made of ups and downs and that is the only way life could be properly balanced. We wish that the ups continue and that we may never have to see the downs in life. But it never happens that way…………
Probably I am sounding very philosophical by speaking of waves and life. But each time I go to the beach, the waves make me relate life to it.
The sunset on the beach is the most beautiful sight. But do we enjoy the sunset in our lives? We would love to always remain young and shine like the sun in the sky. We dread to think of our sunset years when life could be boring, tiring or maybe lonely.
The scene during sunset is amazingly beautiful. But as soon as the sun sets, suddenly there is darkness and we automatically turn our eyes away from the sky….
Why do we turn away? Is it because we want the beautiful sunset to be imprinted in our mind or is it because we fear the darkness will spoil our mood. Are we afraid to face the darkness in life????
Our life is all about sunrise, sunset and the waves in the sea. There are ups and downs, we are born just like the beautiful sunrise and then if we are lucky we live up to our sunset years.
The happiness we feel while we enjoy the beauty of nature must be felt in the way we live our lives. It is in our hands whether we want to be happy or sad. We have to decide and choose what we want to feel. Happy or sad…..
Circumstances will change from up to down and vice versa. But we need not change our moods accordingly. We can continue to remain happy by just accepting that the situation whether good or bad is definitely going to change. Whether it is good times or bad times, nothing lasts forever………..
