Yesterday I took a day of from writing.
Instead I took the day off deciding on what I want to do with my life.
I thought about what are the things I screwed up recently.
I thought about my dreams and my goals.
And at the end of the day, I have this come to this conclusion.
I have no freaking idea what to do.
Sounds pretty pathetic but really, sometimes in life we just have no idea where we are going, so we take a rest.
In music , there is a sign which tells us to pause or to stop playing. Ask any musician and they will tell you the rest note is just as important as every other note in the score sheet.
Ask the DJ and he’d tell you that pause before dropping the bass is what makes the crowd go wild .
Ask the dude playing the triangle in an ensemble and he’d tell you that’s the only thing he sees, besides the occasionally one to two ‘ tings’. Poor guy.
Point is.. sometimes in life we need to just stop playing every single note we can. Taken , yes , we need chords, harmonies and melodies to make our lives meaningful, we need them to create the emotions in our lives, to make us sway with the symphony of life, but really, sometimes what we really need is a simple rest. That one second of silence brings back all the emotions to this one point of reflection and acceptance of the song. And then the song keeps going.
Just because you took a break from life doesn’t mean your quitting, in fact your coming back better and stronger than ever.
And sometimes that rest just means you need to be alone for a moment.
So the harmony will keep playing, or the bass becomes the melody and the music shifts it focus from you to something else and you know what?
That’s okay, you need this silence.
Guess what, I’d never have known all these if I hadn’t pissed of somebody important to me by not leaving her alone, ( among some other stupid stuff that I did which I am not proud of and shall not reveal to the internet. )
And then because of that, it kinda just forced me to take a moment to dwell in the silence, and in that silence I found a clearer view of who I really am. I realized what is it I really need.
Some time to be alone.
So for those’s who’s melodies are getting too messed up for you, who feels that you can longer play the music any more.
Take a rest.
Sit back, relax and just enjoy the silence.
It’ll be alright, everything will turn out just fine, I promise.
Keep going all, TGIF (:
