“She surrendered to her bed and closed her eyes. She’s dreaming again. She’s in her Safe Haven.”
People keep seeking for something they don’t have. They keep looking for a place they can be comfortable with. We all want to be safe and comfortable; in our safe zone, in our comfort zone. But let’s accept the reality.We are never safe. We are always on the run. But do we have to be anxious all the time?” “NO”. A ship is safe on the shore but it defies its purpose of sailing on the ocean. We have to carry our armour and welcome the future with a smile. The future is a very beautiful place but not as safe as you think it is.
“She is always looking at the horizon. Every time she goes home, she never fails to visit the beach where she fell in love. She danced, she sang, she cried in this beach. She made a lot of memories in this very place. But when she was supposed to go somewhere, she refrained.
“This is my place, I can’t be somewhere else but here.”
Her friends left the place. Her bestfriend left the place and she was hurt.
“Is this place not good enough? This is my birthplace. This is where I grew up and fell in love. I can’t be somewhere else but here.”
After long long years, the beach lost its beauty. But she stayed.
She surrendered to her bed and closed her eyes. She dreams again. She’s still in her Safe Haven.
We have to sail in the ocean, witness the beauty of life. Staying in a place we think safe will never lead us anywhere. We have to stop dreaming and see things in reality.
NO. It should be, What’s next?
