Well, we all know that everyday is a day that God has made, that i should rejoice and be glad in it. i know, i know…. But don’t you think some days are more worthy to be remembered?
For example, one horrible day, You lose both your phone and your wallet. You spend the next 1-2 hours filing reports, cancelling cards etc etc. Such a day may be horrible, but it will help you in the future. If i lose my phone and wallet now, in the future i would know how to react, how to calm myself down and relax. Do you seriously want to remember such a day? I can’t judge, but i think such a day is a day you would want to forget. BUT, i also believe joy can come out from such a day. Just imagine, on another day someone called you up saying that they found your wallet! ‘WOW! YAY!’ you would say, but why are you happy? You don’t gain anything, in fact it is still less than from the start(you lost your phone too…) SO why would someone be so happy? I believe this person has formed a greater appreciation for his/her wallet. Losing it has helped this person realise how hopeless you are without it.
CS Lewis said this
Imagine a set of people all living in the same building. Half of them think it is a hotel, the other half thinks it is a prison. Those who think it is a hotel might regard it as quite intolerable, and those who thought it was a prison might decide that it was surprisingly comfortable. So that what seems the ugly doctrine is the one that that comforts and strengthens you in the end. The people who try to hold an optimistic view of the world would become pessimist; the people who hold a pretty stern view of it become optimistic
I will not hold an optimistic view on everyday lives, saying that everything id great. No i won’t, I wouldn’t say that suffering is good, I will not be joyful because i am suffering, but i will be joyful with the chance to grow. With that said, I believe not everyday on earth is a day with beautiful rainbows, with everything right everyday. How boring would that be? It will be like seeing the 7 wonders of the world everyday. It will be like seeing the same show everyday. With horrible days, it gives you a chance to see the difference between them allowing you to appreciate the good days more!
That is why i created this page to honour the beauty of the days where God has blessed me!
There will be a link here to see some of the days when it was so great that i need to type it out!
Page replacement, I am going to replace it with two new pages, ‘Melancholic Reflections’ and ‘Words of Melancholy’. For i realised that these are the segments that i like! Hopefully you will like it! 🙂
