Ironic

Irony

 
 

Does it happen to you also? Usually on that moment, when you think you're in control, or at least you're satisfied about the way your life is going, at that time something happens. In pursuance of an event, everything seems to change which causes a confusion that makes you want to look at your life from a different angle.

Maybe that's just how life is. Ironic. Like Alanis Morisette sang:" Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything is okay and everything is going right, and life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything is gone wrong and everything blows up in your face."

Suddenly you're not sure anymore if you should keep your mind set en keep the principles you had on. Cut off from everything you knew, back to square one. Like life itself slaps you on your fingers and says: "Who's in charge here duh?"

Goals and feelings are studied closely. What would you like to accomplish, what do you want to get out of life? Wisdom? Happiness? Love? Success? Satisfaction? Self- knowledge? Nothing?

On the one side voices in your mind says you have to (re)set your goals and pursue them, and there are voices that think you should be satisfied by what you have right NOW, no long term goals, and just be satisfied. Just because goals don't really mean a thing. In our life nothing is at will or accidental. We have our own free will and still we have no control.

Whether you cry or you laugh; the course of time will not change a thing. To laugh is the best option isn't it? Just go with the flow? Just don't think but act like a lot of other people do? When you try to survive, these confusions aren't that important. No long term goals but just feel what life gives you and learn to handle it.

In the mean time; just be nice to each other and let us create some good, nice, moments. That can't harm us, can it? Not until these good and nice moments make you feel the need to set goals again which make you think you're in control or at least satisfied about your life and something happens, what makes you want to look at your life from a different angle.

Never forget to enjoy the good moments of life's journey.
