As I got off the bus walking down the street, heading to work, listening to the song falling for you by Tamia. I fell. LOL! You are allowed to laugh as loud as you want because that was the first thing I also did right after I made sure there was noone watching! You know what the deal is! We fall, and without even a glimpse of an eye… we wonder who watched us? We wonder of the number of people that could have possibly watched us ? It sounds familiar? Yeah! I have been there, done that!
Especially with the crazy weather in Winnipeg, I would not blame you if you tell me you at least fall once a year.
But, this past Sunday’s incident was different for me. It was different because I fell at the right moment I switched direction to avoid the slippery floor! I could not believe that I actually fell. It was just beyond my expectation, considering that I was ” trying my best” to completely get away from the slippery floor out there.
Back to the scene though, when I saw no one in the neighbour hood, I laughed non stop for good two minutes or so. I could not tell how I fell, or where I hurt myself by choosing to be happy in that moment. As soon as I got to work, I told my coworker of what happened and we laughed about it like crazy and mainly because I was actually blasting to the song ” I am falling for you” by Tamia!
Could I be falling for you?
Is this a fantasy come true?
Is this a dream that I have waited for?
Am I the one that you adore?
I think I am falling for you, whoa, whoa, whoa
What am I supposed to do?
Cause you make me feel
Like I am falling for you … Am I falling for you?
There are also lots of things that happen in our daily lives that we want to absolutely be in control of. We do our best and our best sometimes is not good enough, and so we never stop them from happening to us. Whether it be good or bad, positive or negative, they just happen spontaneously because they are simply supposed to be happening. Regardless of the effort we make in order to avoid or stop the not so good things from happening, they just keep happening. And for the positive things that maybe causing to feel a little overwhelmed in your life, you question the timing, whether or not it is the right thing to do and such.
One thing I have learnt so far in life though is that to let things be.
Although I felt a little hurt on my arm and had head ache after I fell lol… I am alive. I am breathing in and out. I am healthy. I am thankful for the food I have at home. I am grateful for the shelter God has given me, a very cozy home where I feel loved and appreciated for simply existing. I am grateful that I can go to school ( though it is getting intense), work, talk to my friends and some amazing people in my life that I am enjoying talking to the fullest.
The fact that we are all facing the pandemic Corona crisis together is also another reminder that there are things in life that we cannot control, and that there is GREATER GOD we should be relying on for answers. At least for me, because none of this makes sense otherwise.
I am sick and tired of people not taking the whole thing serious though. How can we not stay home, practice social distancing, and wash our hands as often and throughly?
If you cannot do it for yourself, I do not know why you wouldn’t. But, I urge you to do it for your Mama! Do it for your Dad! Do it for your friend. Do it for your brother/sister. Do it for your cousin. Do it for your grandparents. Do it for your teachers. Do it for the janitors, front liners whether at the hospital, grocery stores, and wherever else they maybe working hard to prevent the virus from spreading.
And most of all, do not disappoint your Creator whom has given you the wisdom to think and act upon. Let us look up to him and do what is really needed of us.
Together we must conquer!
I hope your indoor stay is as pleasant as mine!
Thanks for reading!
Till next time
