Sometimes life goes on day after day, week after week, month after month, even year after year(I hope not too many years though)without a change, it just becomes a routine. We do the same things at the same time of the day, say the same words to the same people,think the same thoughts, paying the same checks, making the same checks, having the same dreams, facing the same frustrations. Gradually the colour of life fades during the process.
It's like a pond. Nothing comes in, nothing goes out, it looks still and calm, but gradually it turns into a swamp.
Then it comes a stir of the nature. A gust of wind, an inpour of a flood, or a change of flow. Then suddenly the seemingly still and clear water lose it's calmness. All the dirty and yukky stuff surface up. But during this stir, fresh water comes in, and old stale water has a chance to run out. The water start to move again, and there's a new life flowing into it. And the pond looks alive!
Similarly, sometimes we need a stir once in a while in our lives. It can be messy,unpleasant and inconvenient at the time. Everything goes upside down, inside out and round about. We feel like having a rage, and losing control. But the outcome will be rewarding: the new rush in, the old clearing out. Life turns colourful again!
