As I lay there, the world felt as though it stood still but only the ebb and flow off the tide remained. I lay on the shoreline with the waves lapping against my feet and my head resting on my sand pillow. I breathed in sync with the waves and as I looked out to see it seemed neverending. Expecatations, goals and deadlines filled my head.
Its always good to set yourself goals and ambitions but not depend on them to the point where you feel like you’re drowning because they’re unaccomplished. To ask and know you will receive is the way it should be but I’ll be the first to say its not an easy thing to do. You must always ask what you want with your whole heart and believe you will get it, if there are doubts you have to ask again with full faith. As I looked up at the clear blue sky I whispered to Allah, “You know what I want and I know you will only give me what’s good for me.” with that came so much release. Every time I exhaled I released my negativity, I felt each wave touch me and carry my worries millions of miles away with it.
Sometimes we get impatient but we have to remember that once we’ve put our dreams, wishes and desires out there, they will be answered if they’re meant for us. If not, we have to put faith in God or the Universe or whatever Ultimate Power you believe in to guide us to our chosen path.
As I lay there I realised just how much I love the ocean, the sound of the waves splashing and somersaulting. I grabbed handfuls of sand and squeezed it out of my hands like clay. The waves raced to fill the holes I’d made and I lay there smiling, because I could 🙂
