Standing in the shower is where some of my most vulnerable thoughts, realizations and moments occur. For me, it’s a place where emotional conflict can exist without you being afraid of it. It’s a place of coming to terms. Almost like a confesion.
The world we live in is an exhausting place to be. It is monotonous, cyclical and wearing. We all know what it’s like to feel tired – and not just in the physical sense.
Because the truth is, we’re all tired. Every single one of us. By a certain age or time, we are all nothing more than an army desperately searching for fulfillment and belongingness. We want more but we’re afraid to ask for it.
It is an endless battle of trying. We're tired simply because we live in it. We're tired of loving too much, caring too much, giving too much to a world that rarely gives anything back. We are tired of investing in indefinite outcomes and uncertainties.
We are tired for all the right reasons. We are tired because we're supposed to be and that's just how it is. We're tired because we're making a change. We are exhausted for all the right reasons and it’s only an indication to go on. To go further. We are tired because we're slowly growing. And someday that growth will give us the exact rejuvenation that we need.
