Sometimes we have "grey days", as I like to call them. Days where our friends can't cheer us up, and doing our favourite hobby isn't even fun. Days where we lack motivation to do anything and days where our self-esteem just... plummets.
Trust me. I know how it feels.
One of my passions is volleyball. When I'm on the court, nothing seems to bother me, and it's like a whole new, happier me shines through. There's just something about the sport that immediately lightens my mood and brings me to a calm, yet excited state of mind. I'm not too sure how to describe it, but I know for a fact it's like my own personal mind-vacation. It's something I can look forwards to after a long day in class, as I'm able to have fun and be myself.
But sometimes, that sensation of being on a mind-vacation doesn't last.
And I don't expect you guys to fully understand my whole scenario as many of you probably don't play volleyball to begin with.
However, this made me think- maybe life is a little bit like a volleyball.
It spirals out of control when you least expect it, bringing down your whole self-esteem with it. You feel as if you know you can do better and be a more productive person, but then, life throws a hard serve at you. And BAM. You've got no motivation, your'e constantly annoyed, and you can't seem to have fun.
But then you have to get up, keep going, and serve another ball. And who knows? Maybe that satisfaction of getting it over the net will be like getting over a tough spot in your life. And if we stay strong and don't give up, then maybe those grey days will get brighter.
