Thinking While it’s Raining

Sound of Ocean – Ryo Yoshimata (Legend of the Blue Sea OST)

It’s raining heavily where I’m at right now. I thank God for services like Lyft and Uber, otherwise who knows how long I would have been stuck at the train station? All the trains from a span of 3 hours and maybe more were cancelled due to the horrible weather messing up the system. I pray for those still waiting to get home will get home soon.

But that’s not what this post is about.

I confess that I’ve been a bit sensitive these days. My mood swings back and forth, tears never flowed out easier from my eyes. I just hate everything. I don’t know how it happened. I used to not let words bother me. But I’ve been hearing the things I hate the most so much more often now, I think I’ve cracked. I can’t stand it anymore.

So I turn to music and writing (and [hot] herbal teas) to calm down. To try and fix myself. But I figured… music with lyrics will only make me feel worse. So I set a playlist of instrumentals. Soft and soothing instrumentals that calm you down. Sure, this is risking a wave of terrible thoughts to flow through my head… but I believe the calming effect of this song particularly allows you to refocus yourself.

Instead of running away and drowning yourself in your sorrows, face it. Face the things you want to get rid of…and embrace it. Make peace with the other side. And when you both make peace with yourselves, you will feel at peace.

On a side note, if you listen to this song while it’s raining, it sounds nice too. Isn’t it funny how nature affects music?
