Tumbling down the rabbit hole

We all will face a time in our lives where we are afraid of what the future will bring. It seems that suddenly there is no floor beneath us and that sick feeling we get when falling comes from the depths of our stomach. Many things in our life will cause this sensation, many moments we spin lost in confusion trying to stop the world spinning for a moment as only to gain our composure. Were we pushed or did we lead ourselves down the dark and strange path?

Some, for sure, will face this more than others. When faced with such situations I find it incredible how everything in our minds transforms into a micro world crumbling in slow motion as we question every decision and every second trying to grasp where things went wrong. The longer we search the more we tumble and the more time we waste. We continue until we realize that we cannot change the past in any way even if we do understand where we or someone else made the decisive choice that affected our world. We will all fall, some will fall longer than others, some will never stop falling as such is their struggle with their fate.

But most will soon realize that what is done is done, regret will not return the world the way it was and we suddenly feel a sense of traction beneath our feet. The world, once again, materializes in front of us and we continue on our journey stronger in mind with the choices and decisions we must now take with us to create our world, our life, a better life. Have a creative day.

  2. I have gone through this already and thank God He gave me the strength to move on. I may go through it again and hopefully I will stay strong and not cease to explore life.

    Interesting photo — horse carriage in the beach. Just yesterday, my kiddos rode in one for the 1st time. We call it ‘calesa’ in here and they enjoyed the ride. Thanks for sharing the photo, such a dramatic background!

    1. I think when you do go something through this it allows you to see it coming and the first blow is always the biggest. As we grow older we d understand that this is just the cycle of life. Bet the kiddos loved it! Take care Alan.

  4. Your post made me think of an interview with Rick Springfield. He tried to commit suicide when he was seventeen but the rope didn’t hold. It sad to think of how much talent and future children have been lost when someone loses hope and can’t find their way back to their life’s journey…and how fortunate for those whose attempts failed and they found their way back.
