Looking up I see a passage – There is light and a silvery shimmer from a distance….
My life upside down is the title of a song I’m composing for a friend. He asked me to come up with a song we can both sing, when you are happy is relatively easy to come up with lyrics that resonate to the ear and the heart. However, when you are sad, lonely, have had your heart broken, or you are going through a difficult time in your life – it is even easier to come up with lyrics that touch the very soul.
Why is it that when we are hurt we come up with beautiful art? I don’t know the answer to that, hence I post the question.
Perhaps it is because in order to survive the pain or heartbreak, you need to reach to the inner most part of your very soul, and there – find the resilience, self love and will to go on and grow strong. It is a reality that you don’t know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have. Therefore go out there and show the world how strong you can be even if your shoes and your life is upside down like mine. In time we all find that magical passage where pain loses its significance, and instead is replaced by a gem.
Every person, event, and circumstance in our lives comes as a message to helps learn something we didn’t know about ourselves. Our scars are beautiful because they tell a story about the calibre of our character that is shaped as a beautiful diamond with each experience.
