The Sandstorm Chases You






"Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing direction. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. The storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine" - Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

Fell in love already with the first page of this book <3 nbsp="">

I guess we all can relate to the paragraph. Each of us faces our own sandstorm and often there is no one you can talk to or ask help to or any ask advised to and there's no other option but to just keep moving forward, step by step. Then, just when you think "I got this", suddenly you are inside yet another sandstorm. And it's like there's no end to it. And that is life. I learned to be okay with the neverending chase. The sandstorm sure is not easy. Like Haruki Murakami said, often there's no direction whatsoever but one thing for sure, we don't settle, we push through, people!

Have a wonderful weekend, all :)
