Free your hands to catch beautiful things
They say you must always try to strike the balance between holding on and letting go. While doodling today I found myself writing, “I’m letting you go so I can free my hands to catch all the beautiful things falling out of the sky.”
And there have been beautiful moments these few months. Among the anxiety and the stress and pain there have been moments of pure joy where I stopped to acknowledge them. Not necessarily by taking a picture of anything and recording it, but by only feeling…
Because things happen and things change, inequalities flip sides and balances get tipped. And such is life.
So when beautiful things fall out of the sky, stop and hold out your hand to catch them. Stop. If only for a few seconds….
Also, don’t try to do everything on your own. Friends and family are there for a reason. When you’re happy let them share your happiness and when you’re having a tough time they’ll support you and make it feel better. At least that’s what they’re supposed to do anyway.

I believe in that, blindly! give so you can take, be the change you want to see and treat others as you like to be treated because life’s a karma. these’s aren’t my words, guess you already know that.
In my opinion, it happened with me several times, when something goes, another better thing take its place. I am not sad for my lost friends or whatever, their time with my finished so they had to be replaced. As a believer –I saw you are too– we believe God always sends the best for us, we just need to be alert and open our hands so we can catch what’s falling out of the sky. 🙂
