Some time ago I found myself walking down that empty street at night, alone. It was almost a total silence, with only the sound of my pair of shoes tapping on the black asphalt.
So much were going through my mind – happiness, sadness, and everything in between. Despite it all, my mind couldn’t seem to process them all and it resulted in my blank expression. It felt as if I couldn’t digest everything at once and my stomach clenched up. That exact same feeling I had whenever stress or anxiety came to visit.
Then I looked up the sky and saw a shining star in the distance. I smiled.
And at that moment, I realised everything was going to be alright.
