The valleys of our soul

We all get hurt or dissappointed by our partner, family or friends. It happens, no matter how hard we try not get involved or not to care. Then this feeling creates a hole inside us, inside our soul. We feel like a part of us is missing and we try so hard to cover it up. We put so much energy into trying to fix the hole. We paint it, we gather things in it, we cover it up but in a few minutes the wind is there to ruin all of our efforts. The hole is still there.

What to do?

I think that our main issue is that we try to hard to fix something that’s broken anyway. We keep staring at that one closed door feeling sorry and forget to look around at other opportunities. I’ve said it before, we are too afraid to step out of our comfort zone.

There’s also a problem with the way we look at life and how we expect things to happen. We all dream of happy endings, but nobody ever told us that happy ending doesn’t mean perfect. You can’t get to your happy ending without evolving, learning, growing, have new experiences. Scars can also teach us lessons, scars can also be called experiences. Don’t you think that just because a mirror got broken into a million pieces one can’t put the pieces back together and maybe even create a beautiful rose-shaped mirror? It’s all about allowing our-self to see the good in the bad.

I will plant a rose next to every hole I may have. The deeper the cut, the more beautiful the rose shall grow!

Now I’ll leave you with some pictures I’ve taken on Saturday on a visit to a monastery. I don’t really want to write about my experience there because everyone feels it in a different way. All I can say is that after Β left, a quote came to my mind: “In quiet places, reason abounds”.

  1. Klaudia the photos and the Monastery look beautiful. I’m a firm believer of when one door slams shut another one blows open. Have a great week.

  2. Very beautiful photos. And you are right why trying to fix what is already broken, when you can just reuse it, for an other purpose!:)

  3. So beautiful photos. And the last one has an special perspective and acuity. I like your words. We’re not here to fix anything. We can’t control the conditions only our thoughts. We are here to make the choice to feel happy in any situation and feel love, joy and fun. Happy Day! πŸ˜€

      1. It’s quite small, maybe that’s why. I live in the area and I haven’t heard about it until now either πŸ™‚ Romania is a very beautiful country, sad that we don’t really appreciate it’s beauty properly.

      2. You live in Romania? Maybe I’ll be knocking on your door for a visit someday! πŸ˜‰
        I agree – I didn’t get the sense that most Romanians appreciate the beauty of your country. But I know that for many older Romanians, they were focused on survival for a long while.
