There are times in our lives where we need something to jolt us out of our sadness. For the past few months I have been sadder than usual, and missing the company of a close friendship that has fallen apart.
It’s difficult for me to know what to do in these situations. I really wish that I could have that close friendship again, but at the same time I feel as though I’m the only one trying to mend it, and it doesn’t make me feel good about myself.
But today, in my usual sad mood, I recieved a little ray of sunshine. A friend of mine messaged our group of friends and told us that there was a travel deal going on.
Does anyone want to go to Japan? was the question I saw when I opened up my phone.
I’m still in the middle of work, but I have to let him know within 2 hours. So without checking with my boss, without checking the itinerary, I make a spontaneous decision and say Yes!
Who knew that I’d start the day feeling sad, only to end up booking a flight to Japan!
The spontaneous decision has jolted me out of a much needed wake up. I like it. I want more of this feeling. And although I know my sadness won’t fade away right now, I’m just glad to have a brief reprieve from the sadness I’ve been feeling in my heart.
I’m sitting here all alone at work, listening to the traffic rushing outside and making sure I finish typing this before I go home.
Sadness is not my forte. I want to get out there and start moving. I hope today will be the start of a happier me.
