It felt like my life was falling apart.
So, one day, I set sail upon the Sea of Regrets searching… for a distant place I knew only in my mind.
I eventually found my destination after what must have been a very, very long time.
As I approached it, I could see the Shores of Despair. It was a dismal place. Not very inviting.
I looked around and soon spotted the Cliffs of Sadness. They reminded me of how I felt.
I felt the Disappointment of the Journey and thought the toll it had taken upon me was greater than I could bear.
After landing, I crossed through the Fields of Sorrow on the way towards my final destination.
I came around the corner and much to my Dismay I noticed one lowly tree, standing alone.
I knew that was my final resting place.
I reflected on my life and thought only of my Unhappiness and how unbearable it was.
I sat below the Tree of Greif and began Mourning and contemplating my Life.
It was in that moment that I suddenly had an overwhelming Sense of Content which brought about a Feeling of Happiness, and Fulfillment?
The more I thought about my life and the blessings I do have, the greater the sense of Joy I experienced.
It was in that moment I stood up and noticed it was actually the Tree of Life I was sitting beneath.
Ashamed and yet grateful for the tree, I journeyed back home.
Soon as I crossed the fields, I realized they were actually the Fields of Glee. I just didn’t notice.
I soon passed the cliffs and realized that they were actually the Cliffs of Happiness. I just couldn’t see that at the moment I arrived.
Soon I was on the shore only to realize it was the Shores of Bliss I was actually standing on.
An Overwhelming sense of Peace and Gratitude came upon me knowing that my storm had passed, and I was once again free to enjoy my life again.
I soon set sail upon what was now the Sea of Satisfaction headed back home.
I felt the Gratitude of the Journey and the Revelation it had given me.
I realized Pain would come into my life. But pain, like storms, it will eventually pass.
It was in my Moment of Despair it made me aware of how Actually Lucky I was to be alive.
And how good it is to be who I AM.
I am highlighting how we can feel overwhelmed by pain. But pain, like storms, will pass.
