Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

When The Storm of Chaos Settles

Life is so complex, that sometimes we get thrown off balance. We get thrown into chaos. We enter what I like to call, the cycle of emotions (oh how unique :p). Where we mostly try and do our best to get back on track.

Sometimes we get sidetracked into too much sadness and guilt, we dwell in these feelings for too long. We dig a deeper hole for ourselves. We struggle to find a way to come out of that hole. Sometimes we do, other times we just can’t because we don’t see the way.

Here is a list of emotions we go through in such a storm, especially in this order;
Confusion, Hate, Anger, Sadness, Pain, Remorse, Guilt, Regret, Forget, Forgive, Remember, Accept, Hope, Dream, Love, Trust, Betrayal.

Alright, I just made up that list in that specific order to show the stages one goes through. It is not easy to just jump from emotion to emotion but we do what we can to keep on living. We can live on accepting the fact that some things are just out of our control. We cannot control every situation and make the outcome be in our favor. There are people out there who feel things we do not understand, or we do not accept, but who’s to say who’s right and who’s wrong.

These storms can last from days, to weeks, to months or even years. The most important stage here is Hope. It is safe, it is comforting, and it is what keeps us going. I believe that beautiful things can happen in this world, regardless of how messed up everything seems.

All we need is a little bit of faith.

While typing this, a song kept playing in my head. Here it is for you.

P.S. The one who brought them together once, can bring them back again. :)

    Good morning!
    Reading ur blog while eating my (delicious) breakfast…
    I would like to know what u mean exactly when u say:

    “There are people out there who feel things we do not understand, or we do not accept, but whos to say whos right and whos wrong.”

    what kind of things are u talking about? Are you talking about different feelings/opinion regarding a situation?

    I would like to add up one more thing: even though i agree with most of what u said in ur post, i think that you create your own reality, you create all that’s happening to you. It’s normal to feel all the feelings you have mentioned but it’s up to you to change them… or not!
    I know lots of people wouldn’t agree with me, specially on the “you create all that’s happening to you” but it is my belief and it suits me. :D

    Have a nice day

    Sarah,
    Good Morning to you too!
    Bel 3afiya. What were you having, and where (which country :p)!?

    What I mean is that it is somewhat a non-understanding rather than a misunderstanding. Mostly yes I do mean different feelings/opinions regarding a situation. It sometimes seems as though certain understandings are just not meant to be.

    Exactly! We do create our own reality, not until we realize this will we be swaying around in an ocean of emotion! Facts are facts, but how we feel and respond to them is built into ourselves. We are the ones who can change it.
    I’m sure some people would agree ;p I do!

    Thanks, and you have a super day as well.

    i love that song…

    and true, i am often describes as being on a perpetual roller coaster of emotions which may be true *glares at those nodding* but it is necessary otherwise, i would not be able to differentiate between feelings or appreciate them or anything

    princess,
    *glares at the people nodding at you too* Hmm, interesting you mention appreciation. I think it does play a big part in this large ordeal!

    Whats life with out a little bit of drama eh? I mean these are the essential spices of life , mix them accordingly and life will go on smoothly , add one spice little extra and you have a messy dish [life] …. Tine teaches what to add when ! been there !

    Love the song BTW..

    Grey,
    I do agree. Life without a bit of drama isn’t life, it would be some fantasy. Messy dish, yep.

    No the P.S is no good. if they are out, they are just simply out, there’s no bringing them together!

    i once stayed in a hole for too long i forgot my name im not kidding. and the reason was ssooooooooo stupid, you just dont know it unless you’re out.

    whiskey,
    Why is there no bringing them together? If its fate? What then?

    Yeah, you’re so right. Sometimes you don’t even know it until you’re out! :/

    it does 6ab3an all the stuff i mentioned never crosses our minds when we r in a state of mind or watever, but it is true :)

    princess,
    Yep! It is so important walla, but the people just don’t agree sometimes!

    Am thinkin’ of MJ’s song “No more drama in your life” …

    Life sux sometimes, depends on how you kick the dust & get up- don’t get into these emotions for long, don’t let them consume you… I get so tired of them…

    chikapappi,
    Oh, I like that song!

    They are so consuming, that is probably one of the most perfect words to describe it. Consuming.

    well, when i said that you create everything that happens to you, i meant that you even create a car accident or the fact you get attacked by some random person or u get robbed or whatever… im also talking about all the illnesses u get (create)! :)

    PS: i was having a mat (argentinian tea), with a soya yoghurt, a yellow kiwifruit and a thick slice of a delicious cake (organic) i made yesterday (yellow and purple plums, mulberries, blueberries and almond butter), and i was having all this in Brussels (home) :P

    Sarah,
    Oh, so that’s what you meant. I wouldn’t call it create, it is simply a cause of a choice? This sounds like one of those The Secret things. Where we attract negativity or positivity depending on our thoughts and our minds hehe.

    Yum! That does sound really good. I like cake, especially fruit cakes. My favorite is actually a special home made pineapple cake with pineapples and syrup on top. That does sound like quite a delicious treat. :D I could really use something sweet right now.

    loved this post…
    w bikaffeeny analysis for today..
    if i hadnt been typing for the past 3 hours i mightve said a lot about this.. but for now..

    i just love the post :)

    palo-girl,
    Thanks, yeah if you’ve been typing for three hours then take a break. There’s a lot more where that came from ;)

  9. Sarah |

    Well, let’s say that what’s said in The Secret is more like the visible part of the iceberg ;)

    Sarah,
    If you have more about it, then please enlighten me! I’m all ears. ^_^

    “IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too…

    …Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”

    - Rudyard Kipling

    The song reminds me of someone that used to be my peace-bubble in the middle of a storm.

    (Yes, I’m probably all PMSsy *chuckle* )

    Ri,
    I like this song. Quite the way to put it too! Oh and no worries, you can be PMSsy here as much as you like. I’m sure it’ll add some spice to whatever it is that is going on ;)

    I should create a blog then… ;) but i don’t really wanna put energy in a blog! Im already spending too much time online i believe.

    And by the way, it’s only my opinion, it works for me, it makes my life easier and better but i everyone has their own beliefs, ways of thinking/living and the most important is that it works for them.
    What i believe in isn’t really in accordance with what the society usually dictates, with what the society calls as “normal”.
    I prefer to be natural, to be “me” than being what’s expected from me. And thinking that way implies that u give up on some inner beliefs that u got from culture, education, religion, upbringing, society… not easy but it makes me feel “free” :D

    Sarah,
    Ah, yes actually you can do that. I don’t think a blog takes too much energy, however keeping up will all the others out there does that! :p

    If it is your opinion and it works for you and makes your life easier, then that is a very very good thing. People do not have to agree nor disagree, neither should it matter anyway. I however think that all opinions originate from a single truth. I may be going a little over my head here, but I just feel it. I’ll have to look into that myself heh.

    exactly, only not everyone feels the same nor does everyone understand …. i just tried explaining something similar to my friend and it didn’t go so well … :/

    Laialy,
    Yeah! That’s what I meant when I said, “There are people out there who feel things we do not understand, or we do not accept, but whos to say whos right and whos wrong.” I think they can understand it, but in their own way somehow and you need to access it that way.

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh thats my song :D i love it :D

    and yep its true .. life got its ups and downs .. but life always goes on .. no matter what .. there is always those pure happiness moments and those sad heart breaking moments .. but still .. maybe tomorrow is a better day .. thats what we need to survive .. the faith of a better day .. sometimes i just feel blue ..for no reason .. i just feel lonely though i’m surrounded by my family and my friends .. but the feeling of loneliness just wont go away .. the other day i’m all happy and cracking up !!! thats life :D

    Navy Girl,
    It is a great song. Isn’t life just a series of moments? Yeah, I was thinking about faith and you’re right it is what is important to keep surviving. Ee and smile, it is important, it helps. ^_^

  14. Laialy_q8 |

    i just gave up !

    Laialy,
    It looks like that is how it mostly ends up. I’m giving up too in my case. Another day passes, another day gone.

    We immerse for too long that our brain starts to play tricks on us and our eyes can’t seem to figure out the road.
    Sometimes we cope to the facts and accept them as they are, we may inevitably get attached to them, or we choose to fight back and keep crawling inch by inch.
    Hope is what saves us from despair and rejuvenates our sickened soul.

    Touche’,
    The scariest part is when our brain plays tricks on us. Without knowing what is what, that really makes it so much harder to get back on track. You’re right about Hope, it is the thing that saves us. Without hope, there is no drive.

Reserved, going to add something here later.
