Lost and Found

Any of you who ever feel that all they do is just exist on weekends? The Friday evening that you waited for so eagerly was spent eating comfort food while watching a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. episode and wishing you had a happening life too? But you know what, you actually do! And all it takes for you is to just realize that you don’t have to wait for life to happen because life is already happening, right here, right now!

That feeling of happiness you’ve been looking for, that fulfillment you’ve been seeking for so long, will not be found in a jaggerbomb at the club, it’s not in the eyes of the stranger who’ll ask you for a dance, it’s not in the promotion you think is around the corner, it’s in you! Right in the heart of all your efforts, it is present all that time when you forget to check your phone. It is there in that joke you cracked which made the neighbor smile, it’s there in making the chocolate cake for your mom that she loves. That feeling of fulfillment is in the lost and found box my love, and this box is nothing but your own soul.

You’re not the only one who felt alone in a crowd, you’re not the only person who thinks that I try too hard and get nowhere, you’re not the only one who thinks that each day is a battle. You’re one of those who fight and win each day, you’re one of those who didn’t settle for a pretty life. You’re the person who is out there to make it work no matter what, and so if amidst all this struggle, sometimes you feel empty, it’s perfectly fine. It’s okay to be not okay. Because at the end of the day, we’re all trying and someday sometime, it’ll happen for each one of us. But all you need to know is, don’t wait for life to happen, don’t think happiness is around the corner, because it’s with you, it’s in you, right here, right now. It’s the easiest thing to lose and the easiest thing to find, because all this while, it has been IN YOU!
