Dont Know Why..........

Dont know why.........!
Off late, i have not been sleeping well, doze off to sleep then about 4.30 am, my mind suddenly becomes active,and it will kick me up and i start thinking, worry a bit here and a bit there. Could it be Mid Life Crisis?

Dont know why........!
Suddenly i feel that happiness has been kind of slipping off my fingers, and find it hard to stay happy, again worry a bit here and a bit there, could it be because i am entering into my mid 40s?

Dont know why........!
Recently, i keep very close tab on my bank account(not much inside though) to see if i had saved enough for this and for that, to see if i could weather the financial burden if worst were to befall me, dont know why i do this, could it be that i am too hard on myself?

Dont know why......!
There is an abrupt urge in me to seek GOD, to talk to HIM to be close to HIM like i used to, but somehow or rather, something is halting me, dont know why, could it be that when you advance with age, you tend to be more spiritual?

Dont know why.......!
There is a fear in me that what would i do if i were to lose everything, my business, my this and my that, could it be this is part of the worries one faces in life when you have walked about half of century of life?

Dont know why.....!
Suddenly i have this urge of pouring out these feelings of mine here,could it be that i long for someone to hear me out, or could it be suddenly i feel so small.

Dont know why.....!
I wish i could be like Micheal J Fox, travel back in time and rewrite my life all over again,?

Dont know why.....!
I am feeling tired now

Q)What was the worst period in your life, care to share?
Q)What do you do when you are sad? (I just asked my eldest son Jovial this question, and innocently he said,, when he was sad, he would try not to think about it.)

P/S : Life has its ups and downs, may be i am at the latter now.

  1. bro...i also experienced these before though im in my late 30s. Maybe you just think too much. Why not you just work out your concerns..like financial and etc. And, involved in church more then.

  2. Would you have changed anything if you had a chance to go back in time?I think you are just being stressed of all the responsibilities & commitments that comes as we grow older and of the "what ifs"...i don't know whether what you are experiencing can be considered a mid-life crisis....i think you are doing just fine..just trust in the Lord to guide you!

  4. I ask myself a lot of "I wonder why... " :P.

    Besides, I am sure Micheal J. Fox would love to go back to the past too himself. Would you change anything if you could? Would you want to? It is because of what happen in the past that leads you to have your kids and a beautiful wife... chances is, if you change a past, those won't exist...

  8. Everyone would go through times of trial. Some BIG,some small.No matter what size it is, God allows it to resize you, brother! After all these has passed, you will see that you have gained an extra size of expereince. You have strengthened. You are wiser. God knows your trouble. He understands your yolk. Eventhough there is silence from above or God seems distance away, He is just allowing and looking from afar to test you. It's like when your kid is learning to walk, slowly he takes a step one at a time. I bet that time you were looking from a distance yet worried he would fall further and give up, but you still waited and encouraged him to walk. God works the same way. At last, your baby now can run. Here's something to encourage you:

    Psalm 88.

    88=good number eh, haha.

    Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light." - Matthew 11:28-30

  17. Jovial is right, try not to think about it. I have these blues too and looking back, it's a passing phase. What I used to worry about and thought was the end of everything, will eventually pass.. but a new issue always crops up and that too shall pass.
    A blogger, Shireen, inspired me, she said.. Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but leads you nowhere !

  19. I sometimes feel all these things you're feeling too... I guess in these times, we need to run towards God more than ever, and just drop all our worries and fears at His feet =)

    When I'm sad/tired, this song comes to mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKkjgO6OroY

  20. Eugene... I wish I can console you, but I'm sad myself too. LOL... =.= too much probs, I'm getting blame for many things, etc etc, and been crying for days now. If you want someone to share your probs with, you know my number. Call me, or sms me. I'll be there for you, my friend.

    These sort of things cannot be mid life crisis la... *sigh* I'm in my twenties and yet I have same probs too... =.= life is being a bitch, and we have to fuck it! *SIGHHHHH*

    ps: Eugene, sometimes I wanted to go back to the past and make things right too, but then, I know it's impossible to turn back time. Besides, I made too many mistakes... too many problems... So I found myself wishing that I could leave everything and everyone around me and stay in a place where no one knows me. I think about this very often, as of late. I wonder if this is selfish thinking? I dunno, but you, you take care, my friend. Take care, and I really mean it when i say you can give me a call anytime.

  21. Ironically, I know for sure that the worst part of my life was over the moment my parents had passed on. Extremely sad to say, having them was the worst part of my life, but I do admit that, without that period of my life, I would not be what I am today. *wink*

    As for snapping out of sadness, I like what your kid answered. It all voice down to one thing > CHOICE!
    If you choose to dwell in it, you have it. If you choose to dump it, happiness come filling that emptiness. *Grin*

    Have a Great Weekend!
