After a huge debate at work and filing a formal complaint with the HR Department. I decided to take a break from all the negative vibes surrounding me (no one dared stopping me this time). The aura in the office has turned bleak lately and I wasn’t ready to face another feud or even argue. My mind is empty and my heart filled with contempt and devilry. I needed some time to free myself and unburden my soul from all this hatred.
I took a day off from what seems to be a crazy and ugly situation. I needed a break, a much needed recess. I waived a white flag in the air, I’m calling for time out. And so I grabbed my overnight bag and drove myself to the nearest place I’d find solace, the ocean. For reasons beyond my understanding, water draws a calming effect on me. It’s like I’m in my own little world, protected and far from all hostility and people who knows nothing except inflict harm and foulness.
And for a day, with heaven’s wonders right in front of me. I let the wind blew my worries, my pain and my evil thoughts. I touched the crystal blue waters, soaked my feet and let it washed away my misery. I took deep breaths and exhaled all my apprehensions. I cried and then laughed about my troubles. I felt better, much much better. God was with me that very moment. He blessed me with inner peace and then gave me that warm embrace I needed so badly.
I stayed a couple more hours and watched the sun as it sets on the horizon. And after that, I walked back to my car and drove back to the real world. Whatever is out there waiting for me, be it big or small. With God on my side, I am ready to face it —headfirst!
