Become the director of your own life

There are times when each little effort seems to cost too much energy

few months before, you danced climbing through the stairs

but now you stop step after step to catch your breath

why is your body and your mind so lethargic that you don’t want to do anything

why are your days so gray and uninteresting


It often is because you’ve lost interest in the life you’re living

you’ve drifted away from your heart and your dreams

and you’re erring hopeless, so far away from what you truly desire


Other times it is simply because there’s a lot of sadness infusing your body

Sad, me? but I’m not! you may reply, I have no reason to be

and yet you are, a mild sadness like an autumn haze that remains around

without clearing in rain or tears

waiting for a strong wind to lift and chase it away


But how can a wind rise when your heart is so asleep

and the lack of energy drags on and on and on

until you succumb to it, or until you rebel

until you decide to become the actor, the director, the writer

of your own life

you won’t anymore be a shapeless ghost that is carried away by the wrong river

you will impose yourself, your presence, the desires of your heart

and suddenly you will retrieve all the energy and the youth you thought gone all at once

and you will perceive again the landscape around you with the snow capped mountains

as in a clear day of winter

and you will breathe deeply, and discover that you are happier than you’ve ever been
