Me and control, we have a love-hate relationship.
You see, I’m a kind of person who let things be.
I just let the nature and forces out there do whatever it is they want to do.
I’m not one who plan things.
I’m not one who grabs a hold of something. It has a lot of disadvantages being that way.
But whatever the outcome is, whatever I’m given, I’ll take it!
If it’s a good thing then I’m grateful. If it’s something bad then it’s a challenge, a lesson learned.
If the forces out there are taking too much time to provide me the thing that my heart desires, so be it!
I’ll wait. I know patience can be so cruel.
But when that time comes…
… victory and success will be delicious.
It will be magnificent.
It will be oh-so sweet.
The words here are excerpts, same words from a post a long time ago, which I titled “Explosions in the Sky“. Having this post now, the post turned out to be like a poetry in the making. 🙂 Over at the original post, I was reflecting fireworks with having better opportunity. Two years later, I have this exponentially bigger opportunity of witnessing the best fireworks display I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen many spectacular fireworks displays but none can hold a candle ( or in this case, a firework 🙂 ) to Yokohama’s Fireworks Festival.
I’m going to open up to you here. So far, I really can’t complain with life. I’m having a blast here in Japan. But one of a good number of frustrating things for me right now is that I can’t make promotion. I’ve been trying hard for the last couple of years to get to the next level, but I’m not having any luck. Economy is horrible, and competition is getting fiery. But you know what, I’ll stay optimistic and continue to try. Just like this moment of capturing the most spectacular fireworks, maybe something out there’s ready to burst; maybe something magnificent and beautiful up there that would lighten up; and that maybe I’d be in for a big surprise. 😀 If not, c’est la vie, and it is something to celebrate about. 😉
