Wanting the things you don’t have

Autumn has only just arrived and I am already creating wonderous winter compositions. Typical, isn’t it? Longing for what you don’t have?

A desire for things you don’t (or can’t) have is something quite irrational, thus naturally making it something very human. Desires and wishes might actually be one of the most cruel yet beautiful aspects of our lives. For instance, we long for happiness and hope to find it in certain aspects of life, such as a romantic partner, friendships, money or perhaps in fame in recognition. In any case, the journey to reaching these goals are dreadfully long and painfully difficult. But then, when we finally reach the top of the mountain and find ourselves at the paradisiacal heights of happiness, we feel accomplished and satisfied. Though the feeling only lasts so long before we grow weary of it and look for something new to make us happy.

We find ourselves stuck in an eternal journey of finding happiness. This endless cycle may seem cruel, but ironically, it is also what keeps our lives so interesting and intruiging. It keeps up going. Because, whether we would like to admit it or not, we all long to be happy and even after finding out happiness is mostly temporarily, we will still look for it.

We humans are irrational beings, longing for the things we don’t have and sometimes, admittedly, not being able to be grateful for the things we do have. But somewhere between our nonsensical doubts and desires, we find peace and serenity as we see the beauty in all of our best mistakes and unlogical tendencies.

“She was close, and she held me very tightly
‘Til I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name
And I elongated my lift home,
Yeah I let him go the long way round
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my shortcuts to myself
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak
Messing with the smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken armIt was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in letraset
No you can’t call me her name”
– Arctic Monkeys, Cornerstone

Oh hi there!

It’s great to “officially” be back from my (much needed) hiatus. For those who have been wondering what I have been upto and to which road the hands of faith have pushed me, it’s a long story so make yourself a cup of your favorite tea or any other soothing drink and keep on reading.

I took a hiatus with the intention of properly finishing my schoolwork for the last semester which, fortunately, did work out well. I passed my schoolyear and that was honestly the most surprising and uplifting news I have received so far this year. However, I did not immediately return to the grid and its activities such as blogging and vlogging straight after hearing this wonderful news. Instead, I extended my hiatus for just a little bit longer but I am honestly so glad I did. I celebrated the last few days by hanging out with the friends I haven’t spoken to in months and doing all kinds of things that I haven’t or couldn’t do because of school or my amplified introversion due to all of the stress and heartache caused by school and other aspects of my life then. Doing the things that put a smile on my face and make what seems like the weight of the world that I carry on my shoulders feel like a tiny feather, blown away by a summer breeze, make life look slightly more rosy and I needed that. I needed reassurance. Perhaps passing my schoolyear was a reminder that miracles do excist which is a belief I had given up quite a while ago.

When the colors of my sky shifted to grey, I thought that was its new permanent state. I went through my days waiting to go back to sleep. What started as a heartache escalated to pain which further on led to feeling nothing, augmented by the torment of numbness. That nothingness made me reach a point at which I woke up everyday thinking “what’s the point?”. Fortunately, I was (and am) too cowardly, or perhaps too brave, to actually harm myself. I’m glad I did not participate in what now seems as foolery because since then I have met people who have restored my faith and hope. They have taken away that numbness and filled my nothingness with love and warmth. Some of these people might be reading this right now. Know that I will always be so incredibly grateful that you are part of a new life in which I intend to be a better person, towards the rest of the world but also towards myself.

There is so much more to tell but I should probably shower and get dressed. I am going to see Finding Dory with an old friend from high school today. The same friend who was dating the guy I used to like, but instead of feeling envy, I was happy for her. And the same friend whose 16th birthday was such a memorable and amazing event which I hope to never forget. It’s funny how life decided to surround me with these people I thought I had lost. It reminds me of what makes life worth living for, the people who may or may not be a part of your everyday life but are always a part of your heart, and you a part of theirs ♥

“Peel the scars from off my back
I don’t need them anymore
You can throw them out or keep them in your mason jars
I’ve come home”
