“One can never consent to creep when one feels compelled to soar.”
— Helen Keller
What are these compulsions? Impulses, thoughts, desires ever pulling us in directions of which we cannot fully explain?
They nag at us. Sometimes often. Sometimes here and there, perhaps once in a blue moon, but…
“Never despise the day of small beginnings.”
— Zechariah 4:10
The above quote rings true for those of us wondering if what they are doing, what they have started, holds any true significance. Whether you are religious or not, this quote holds merit.
I learned recently of the true importance…
I was both lucky and unfortunate to see her come and go.
To and fro, and I knew then like I know now that she could come as she pleased but could not stay forever,
My better half.
She brought more than expected and left with more than before…My heart…though she didn’t know it…was already gone…leaving with her to places unknown.
It is unfair…
Unfair that you cared more than I could have asked.
More than I could understand, more than I could fathom…
My mind tried to rationalize the damage my heart was doing. But it could not, and it was then that I realized that I was losing.
I had given some thought to things.
How they were and will be.
Only to realize how much I’d rush to try and make things happen quickly.
Wanting to know the future more than I knew myself and all that I was capable of.
“Embrace this space! This time! It’s not a race!” Said a distant voice, subtle yet powerful, long lost yet familiar.
It was the person I’d always hoped to become.
The best version of me.
