Point of no return

A girl on a hill

“In everybody’s life there’s a point of no return. And in a very few cases, a point where you can’t go forward anymore. And when we reach that point, all we can do is quietly accept the fact. That’s how we survive.”

Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

It’s me at the photo (why would I post somebody else’s back anyway). I do remember that day, I kinda feel overwhelmed with millions of problems, but when I look at the majestic Toba Lake, the whole scenery is just withering the tons of problems in my mind, the cadence of the wind, the greenery hills, and the bluish lake, the wise sky, all stood gracefully. I feel they look like these cool wise old grandparents who have seen it all, and when I timidly whispered to them I have so many problems that weighing my mind now, all of them looking at me, smile, and say: what did you say? what problems?

I closed my eyes then… I tried to make a list of all problems on my mind… Well I don’t have enough money to pay all the bills that I have to pay, the wind snap back… But you have money to come to this place… Ow…that’s true..

I don’t have a proper job at that moment and the waves whispered.. but you will not have time to do everything that you need to do if you are working 9 to 5.

I don’t think I know whether I have done the right thing in life… Everything seems so frightening. And the knowing sky just smile… You don’t have to know everything now honey… Understanding takes a very lengthy process.

If you too feel overwhelmed and scared right now.. it probably the sign that your life is on that Crucial point of no return. Accept. You will survive.
