Disorganised Day & Learning To Let Go

The birds soared above the clear blue sky, spreading their wings and heading to the places they desired to go. There I stood silently in admiration as they basked in the glory of freedom. We all someday yearn for the taste of that sporadic freedom

It was Wednesday and I was awoken by the early untimely commotion which occurred in the neighbourhood. Looking forward to starting the day great, the daily morning routine made its way and for a while, it seemed all was going well. As the aroma of the distant coffee intrigued the mind, I sat by the window sill reading emails and adjusting the day’s schedule for a buyer who had made purchases from my on-going garage sale and would like to schedule a self-collection appointment. Attempting to finish work promptly according to the schedule, what seemingly appeared to be going smoothly ended up with the abrupt cancellation from the buyer. There I was, at the designated venue with the items which the buyer had paid for, amidst the lunch-hour crowds.

Grabbing a honey mustard and mayonnaise tuna wrap set and finding myself a little comfortable corner in the picturesque café, the atmosphere was right for a resolution regarding the cancellation of the appointment. The lack of response must have set the buyer in a frenzy as the endless stream of messages started flowing into the inbox. It was a sudden cancellation but honestly, I was not even bothered by it. Somehow the buyer’s inability to fulfil the appointment was within the expectation way before I arrived at the agreed venue. Thanks to him, I got a chance to experience a serene environment at that café. The meal was indeed mouthwatering. And all ended well as another appointment was being scheduled. It was a little of a disorganised day but I made do with it.

In the late afternoon, some news came which was not very pleasing and made me feel a little unsettled. With some words of comfort and promises made by a person who assured me that he would not make me feel any insecurity, my turbulent mind calmed down a little. However, in my mind, I realised that sometimes in life, we cannot be rigid and live with an inflexible mind. It would only make us suffer mentally and eventually exhausts our mind. To finish this journey of life and enjoy the glow at the end of every lifespan, the mind needs to be strengthened. No one can determine the happiness and sadness of a person. The thin line which can change your life is determined by yourself. The day when you finally learn to seek goodness in the bad, you will, in the fullness of time, find the release and joy of letting go. With that, my Wednesday went well.
