In which there are moments of clarity

08 March 2011

I've always thought the term blessing in disguise is just a fantasy invented by sweet lemons-practising people. I guess, when struck by a rather unfortunate incident, it is always easy to believe that the powers that be meant for it to happen because something better will come out of it. I don't know, I just used to think that if something bad is happening to you, you deserve it because of something you did before. You see, I've always believed in cause-and-effect and consequences; that any action we put out there be-gets a reaction.

Maybe that is exactly why all this time I felt guilty about something I did, or let happen, three years ago.

I know I said in my previous post that I will blog about more details on what happened last Saturday, but due to its sensitive nature (for everyone involved), I have decided not to any more. Just know this: I will never be the girl a guy cheats on her girlfriend with.

I was really angry last Saturday, but a friend helped calm my nerves. While talking with said friend, I suddenly realized that hey, everything has made sense in the end! I am finally relieved of the guilt and regrets! Life is suddenly A-okay again! And just like that, "moments of clarity" became my favorite phrase of the month.

This is probably confusing for you if you don't know the back-story and I really apologize for that, but I just want to tell you that if ever you find yourself in a tight scrape and everything seems confusing, I can attest to the fact that it could be a big blessing in disguise. As another friend told me, it's God's intervention - making things fall apart so the right pieces can fall to their right places.

And yes, I want to reach out to you, too. If in case you are reading this and you feel lonely, sad, confused,  whatever, email or message me, anonymously if you like. I may not have the answers, but at least we can be sad, confused, whatever together. Loneliness can't beat that :)

And because I'm feeling extra-"giving" today (yes, moments of clarity can do that hee), I'm going to share something. This is not an advertisement in any way, mind. You might have seen this in your Facebook News Feed (or you might even be using this already), but I love how the application God wants You to Know seems to have this uncanny ability to give you the response you need, when you need it - just like a virtual fortune cookie! Here's a response I got last week (which is very apt, indeed!):


It says: On this day, God wants you to know
... that it is time to finally forgive yourself. You've carried the guilt, the shame for long enough. You've kept your wounds open for long enough. The time has come to let go, to heal. Keep the lessons and let the pain heal. Yes, you know what we are talking about.
Cool, huh? Even if you don't really believe that Someone Up There is listening to our prayers, these bite-sized offerings give words of wisdom and bursts of inspiration that might just help you or someone in your network who might chance upon your feed.

And with that I sign off and say, I hope you're having a grrreat week!
