Regardless of what stage we are in our life, we all dream and have ambitions. The journey we take to pursue greatness and happiness is never easy, but in the end we are rewarded. Along the way you will encounter many challenges and obstacles, and each time you are going to have to fight to continue your journey. The journey will take a lot of time and energy, and you may be so focused on the destination that you forget about what is happening all around you. Events and people, good and bad, will pass you by just like street lights. You may not pay attention to them, or realize they are there, but they are there with you along your journey. Appreciate the beauty that is the journey, because sometimes it is just as rewarding and beautiful as the destination.
Every relationship has an end, and that end comes when the time is right. Just like when a relationship begins, when one comes to an end it comes back to timing. We don’t look forward for this time to come, but we also know that it is inevitable. As time moves forward, so do we. Change happens, and someone we once needed and wanted in our lives is no longer what we need. That’s when the time comes, when we have to decide whether to let go or to try and restore what is left. And no matter what decision we make, time doesn’t wait. We continue to change and move on with or without this person we once needed.
While the truth we hold within in us may be good and beautiful, we fight to stay in the “safety” of the shadows of lies and deceit. We find peace in living a life we believe is meant for us; a life that is not built for us, but for others. We are scared to face the truth of ourselves. We are afraid that the life we are truly meant for is not what will be defined as beautiful by others. When we are left to our own thoughts and devices, we hold the power to stay in the shadows or to bask in the glory of the truth. We can either run and hide from it or embrace its goodness. The beauty of the truth is not that it sets you free, but that it gives you a purpose in this life and that is true freedom.
Of a new day. A chance to start all over again and to recover from the mistakes of the old day. We all make mistakes, and while we can never really rid ourselves of the scars of these mistakes, we can heal and become stronger. These scars we carry remind us to do better each and every day. They push us to be greater people and to never back down when life is against you. It is a promise that in life, there is no challenge too big that you cannot overcome. The scars of our mistakes are testament to this; we fought and we won. With the rising of the sun comes a new dawn, a new day, to be bigger and greater than ever before.
Love. The butterflies and skipped heart beats. These emotions were foreign until this one person came into your life. From there, you learn the game of love. For most, this person will leave your life about as fast as they came into it. Then there are a few who get lucky and the first stays for a lifetime. They say you never forget your first love, and the truth is you never really do. You may fall in love, get into relationships, and marry other people, but the memories of that first love always find their way back to remind you that at one point in time this one person made you feel alive.
