I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud…

27 Oct

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

When I decided to write a post about loneliness I immediately thought of the poem I read long time ago, written by William Wordsworth. These days, I feel like that cloud floating on high o’er vales and hills.

Starting your life from scratch in a new country (or in general) is never easy.  You may feel like a little kid going through the school’s door for the very first time, except that the school is now called a real life. You don’t know what is waiting for you and what to expect. Teacher is not there to give you the directions, or support you when you feel rather confused as to how you should solve some algebra (i.e. life) equationand since it’s not a classroom and you’re not seven anymore, you can’t just say ‘hello’ to a total stranger sitting next to you in the same desk.

I do feel lonely most of the time but not scared. I  rather feel sort of surprised at myself for having this much courage to do things I never thought I would do. And that makes me wonder…do we actually need to be lonely sometimes to see how much courage we’ve actually got inside us? Is it easier to reach out the stars when you know the only person you could rely on is you? I am not going to lie; I’ve cried a thousand oceans and have been feeling like it’s time to give up even more times, but then I realized I have everything a human being would possibly need to have: a brave heart and friends/family who support me all the time!

After all, it does not matter where your friends and family are. It is comforting to know that the ones I love are always in my heart. And some of them, are just a plane (or two) right away!

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me!

    Interesting thoughts about how feeling lonely can actually be positive – I think I’d agree. This has made me smile 🙂 and I love that Wordsworth poem.

    Miss G,
    it’s not about the hours in life, it’s more about the life in those hours.. The quantity -> the quality. ..and it’s all about.. never growing up. That’s why everything you feel right now is worh everything what comes in the future.

      I absolutely agree with you yet sometimes when times are hard you seem to forget all the golden rules and the truths of life!
      P.S. Thanks for reading my blog!
