Pastel

Often we take on roads we never trekked before and are afraid to move forward… because we are expected to walk on the familiar.

Often, we do things with one intention… but the fruit of our labour is something unexpected… often pleasant.

A drink to wash fears away ends up in a conversation, the beginning of something fabulous.

Or a long forgotten prayer finally answered when you least expect it.

When something is taken away, something is given back. Whether or not we acknowledge it.

My days have been very grey with splashes of rainbows at train stops… but now… I can see some colours seep through the canvas… as faint and pastel as they are… they’re enough to put a smile on my face.

I can finally look in the mirror and agree with my reflection, despite the disagreement over many factors.

We’re both happy.

    This left me with unease at the heart!
    It’s beautifully written, very real that it threw me out of my comfort zone!
    In the mirror I don’t see a reflection.. yet!!

    “I can finally look in the mirror and agree with my reflection,” shu zayed 6 kilos overnight? lol

    “a long forgotten prayer finally answered when you least expect it.” thats why we need to pray all the time, for us, for them, for everyone, for the earth and for peace and most important, for our future.. and when least expect but still the perfect timing, this will happen and prayers will be answered..

    good luck :)

    Thank you Jano… Sometimes people tell me why do I bother praying if I sin in other things or am not particularly religious like I used to be. It us as though praying is reserved only fornthe pious. They tell me sometimes it is even pointless but I believe that God is very forgiving. I don’t take it for granted but I believe in it. And God said that He forgives for anything but “eshrak”. Then “ella mn tab ba3dha”. So we should keep praying. Regardless.

    Don’t give up. Do something you believe in or believe to be right even if logically it is wrong
