7 months later...

I wrote the first story (or actually finished it) on the 11th of July 2021. Attempted writing the second one on the 29th of November 2021, and ended up finishing it on the 1st of March 2022…

Mind you, I am doing something I love doing. Mind you also, I had said I would write a story a day. Meeeh, maybe not a day, but a story a week at least! I mean, how hard can it be?? Obviously… Very… Very… Hard…

Because you see, life has a way of getting in the way, while you’re trying to live. As I am sure you have experienced. Something in the household breaking, a big change on the national level that affects your everyday life, a child getting sick, an explosion, your dad passing away, something, and then something else… These “somethings” are sometimes happily and positively welcomed, but some other times, maybe most times, annoying and potentially painful… But then again, that’s life!

I read multiple times, and thought to myself as many times, until I almost believed it: everyone can spare 1 to 2 hours a day doing something on the side. Starting something else. Doing something new. I mean, there are 24 hours in a day, right? How on earth is it possible not to be able to devote 1 to 2 hours to that something? That something that excites you to the maximum, that you chose, that drives you! (Life again: ha…ha…ha….). Then you get to waking up to a cranky child, going through the motion of the day, finishing your other job, cooking, cleaning, bathing, showering, putting to bed, doing the endless small things of each day, until you find yourself drained and empty, not a single bit of energy left for anything else.

Life and its surprises. So wonderful at times, when you have an unexpected achievement at work, when you meet you soulmate and have those first feelings of really falling in love, when you meet your first child and have all those unexpected emotions flood you. Then at other times, not so wonderful… The breakups, the failures, the deaths, the sicknesses, the pains. Or sometimes the regular everyday things, sometimes getting caught in the vicious circle of routine itself! Life and its motions I guess… We are blessed to be living it, to be alive, to be able to live life. Maybe that blessed feeling is hard to feel sometimes, and that’s sad. Because we should feel lucky, blessed, and happy to be alive. And hopefully to enjoy living it!

Do we actually have choices? Do we have a say in what kind of life we live? Or are we trapped in a maze that is already in place by a way bigger system, more ancient, set-in-stone, where our role is just to live the life we are given the way we are told to? With of course some control, some semblance of decisions that we can make, even some rebellion sometimes, but all under the umbrella of THE SOCEITY… Maybe?


May you be enjoying LIFE. May you know that you have the RIGHT TO BE HAPPY, and stress-free. May you have CHOICES in life, and know that you do have them, and may you make the choices that make YOU happy!

Go figure, I just finished 2 stories today!!!

Happy Life, and Happy Shopping! 😊
