"Take a plunge in the ocean of sadness, for you to understand happiness and appreciate life moment by moment..." ~Leony~
We have to live it moment by moment.
Cherished moments are those times that bring a smile to our face or tears in our eyes.
They are special and remarkable.
They are treasures.
We treasure every moment because they recall the memory of our loved ones - family and friends who'd been part of us and made our journey worthwhile.
They were part of the lessons we learned day by day and each piece of it has a special room in our precious heart.
They are not meant to be concealed or buried.
They are to be relived, to be experienced again and again..
.."for they are influencial source of strength, guidance, inspiration, and hope as we journey on" (Fr. Jerry Orbus).
Normally, we only tend to reminisce the happy moments, setting aside those sad ones., and most likely many of us try to erase those that refreshes the pain...
Only few realizes that everything happens for a reason... and there is hope beyond the horizon.
"I've been too long in the wind,
too long in the rain.."
too long in the rain.."
There was a flashback of the unforgettable...
I saw myself in the ocean of sadness remembering the person behind that song..
While listening to it, I become too emotional for it reminds me how life has treated me 'till this very day. It was my lonesome moment, and an outburst of emotion has got me almost fainted.
We have our own share of unforgettable moments and we have our different ways of dealing with it.
Either we keep it or share it, the bottom line is ...
those moments are meant to be cherished.
I thank God that during those moments of sadness,
when I was so down and tired in my journey,
He has given me a helping hand,
in a form of a stranger... a friend.
A friend who tries to listen instead of judging.
A stranger, whom I considered my light in shining armour.
It was a moment, a treasured moment... with a treasured friend.
Getting back to the song...
It was a gentle reminder for me to go back to my real self, to my identity and my mission in this life.
With divine providence, make a choice.
Either you gonna leave or live the moment.
Leave those bad moments behind. They were there as part of your journey.
Live the good ones and cherish them.
They are there to give colors and guidance as you journey on.
