Have You Ever Felt Tired Of Living Your Life?

Life moves pretty fast. Why don’t you stop and look around once in a while?


You may not notice your favorite toy when you were a kid that you liked to throw here and there and break its parts is now fully covered with dust. The childhood scent of crayola box that you used to sniff, faded overtime. Along with the leaves falling by your window from the tree that you used to climb back then, now drifting.

You may now blink, right before you set your foot forward to your whereabouts for the day, you will pass by the stray kids goofing and playing around on your way. You will hear calls on repeat from the peddlers of goods. When you caught a sight of them, you’ll notice wrinkles of hardship painted on their faces, and hard-earned sweat streaming down their necks. Hard sacrifices for their simple dreams — to eat for a day and live for another day.

While you stride on the narrow streets of your childhood place on your way to the bus station off to school and work, something in mind will hit you. A thought or two which will make you ponder about what you just saw, has something changed? Then, you’ll realize there’s none.

Now you’re sitting in the bus, and since your drop off point is the last, you chose the back seat to feel like you’re the main lead of the movie. You noticed the people standing in front of you. The one facing left who seems to be late incessantly looking at his wrist watch. On his right is the serious senior student, looks like he’s ready for a one-seat apart examination. Then there’r the recliners, seems like the whole world has heard all the battles they’ve started this morning. And of course the sleepers, whom are tired from a night-long wakefulness to finish their reports and staffs for work or school.

You will just ask yourself, do these people you are with, share the same problems as yours? You think maybe you all do, but fall into different categories. A long way ride it is, you can’t do anything but to think of some things and your mind is occupied with unwelcome thoughts which makes you emotionally tired. Bills are waving — electricity, rent, internet, plans, maintenance and others. You will then check your email inbox where requirements and duties are giving you a heads up to finish it in due time.

So maybe right now you’re stuck, you are asking yourself how can you get out of the hole you dug for yourself?


What you try to do is to stay positive and have optimistic point of view in this kind of negative situation. Realizations will bubble up like maybe you’re just feeling lazy, or somehow you made some sort of mistake which makes you feel stressed.

Then you’re looking at these messed up things as a chance for you to grow, because you believe that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonades which means you keep yourself feel encouraged in the face of adversity.

You believe in fate and faith, though at times it’s hard to trust faith because your fate tends to deny you for so many times. It’s hard for you to believe in hoping for something you expect to happen or have faith in someone to come in your life when wrong things ensue over and over again. But you still believe on its power. You believe in His will and His plans for you. And so you pray and trust Him.

Though the phasing of life is real fast, it is way too short to live it like you’re just existing.


You can live your life because you keep doing action to flight. You are capable of building a castle out of all the bricks that life is throwing at you. Yes it’s a hard journey that’s filled with obstacles and failure but you’re used to it now. Every day is a battle, but what’s waiting for you is worth the struggle.

***

The sky turned velvet, you’re on your way home now, as you walk through the narrow streets, the playing kids were gone to rest. The place became quiet as the peddlers earned enough today. You’re like them, they have routines same as yours, and they never stop.

So, you will wake up 5AM tomorrow to start the day, it’s the process. I know it’s tough, but so are you. For now, you can rest. Don’t worry. You’ll be fine. Okay?

  4. Life is how you make it, if you want a change, if you are not happy with your current situation, you must take steps towards changing it. Most people stay in their routine because they are simply afraid to get out of their comfort bubble, because they are scared of the change, even if they want it.

  9. I used to see myself as a warrior and look at my days and challenges as battles that I had to fight. Through the time I have learned to go with the flow. So no more battles, but opportunities to learn and be a better version of my self. This former warrior is done long time ago.

  14. Great read. It’s easier to give up than push through especially when one is focused on the challenges. But being tough requires a deliberate effort to face one’s challenges — and not alone— with Jesus involved. Finally when this is done, one will look back and see how far they’ve come.

  19. I love your post! Specifically where you said that life “is way too short to live it like you’re just existing”. I completely agree. We sometimes get so caught up in our daily routines that we are just going through the motions. Once in a while it is good to break that routine and live a little.

  21. Reading the headline ” Life moves pretty fast. Why don’t you stop and look around once in a while?” made me realize that people must sometimes slow down, I know we like progress, change and we are ambitious but there are things in life we have to think deeply.:) that’s why look at what’s happening with the world now especally here in the USA, they want to get things done even the odds are not in favor.. Very sad reality, people must go back to basic. that’s it.

  22. I do feel tired whenever things around me become routine and mundane, for at least a week, When there is nothing new I can experience and learn at work or at life. Hence, what I do is to try new stuff and force myself to go to places to break the routine. At times, I reflect, did I just not notice the details?

  25. Very well expressed, I feel its not life that is unfair, its because of our own deeds that we suffer, each one of us is responsible for our own lives and collectively for the environment or the way the world is functioning right now. This COVID lockdown gave people enough time to reflect upon themselves, but I hope they don’t forget it as soon as things get back to normal.

  31. I forgot where I read it, but saw a quote before that goes somewhere along the lines of “I miss the times when tying my shoe laces was the hardest thing in life.” It’s true it’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of life, making ends meet, earning for the future, but there’s definitely more to life than making a living.

  32. This was a great read and i love the imagery. I admit that I’m one of the people who get so caught up with how busy my life is that I don’t appreciate my surroundings. I should probably take a step back, breathe and just enjoy the moment and all that. Haha
