Through a strange and painful array of events, we have found that spark between us again. Both questioning it, mistrusting it and wondering what to do with it. Maybe it never left. Just hidden from the war. I’d like to think you can never really destroy true love. It just takes a hiatus from all the turmoil and pain and comes out again when we have learned to truly embrace it. You really can’t destroy love. It’s a gift. You either accept it or you don’t. I’d like to think that is true. It is a choice after all. As is being brave within yourself. As is not letting your fears dictate your life. It is that simple and that hard.
Why does the universe bring people together, in love, if they are not meant to be together? What is it about having loved one person that makes them unforgettable, and yet having loved another, they never cross your mind? Why can’t love just be easy? Just once? Universe. Yes. I’m talking to you. I think I’ve proven I can love. Am capable of giving love. And receiving love. So why has this path been so difficult for me? I’m here and I’m not afraid anymore. But I am totally questioning what love is really all about now. Why, for some, it seems to come so easily. And for others it has to be so painful. Where is the peace that supposed to come with love? And, um, yeah Universe. You can answer me aaaanytime now. Just sayin. Cuz I’d really really like to know.
I read this piece above somewhere between learning how Square Space functions, and researching neuroplasticity. Yup. It’s been that kind of day. All over the friggin map. I’m anxious and overwhelmed and in hyperdrive work mode. And still trying to shake this depression that’s looming like a ghost. Then a friend sent me this following piece thru Messenger, and it calmed me a bit while bringing up a bunch of other feelings. Like I needed more fuel, right? But I know she meant well, so I’m sharing it with the spirit in which it was intended. Namaste ❤️
Girl, I did not write this – but WOW does it speak to my heart!!! Worth the read.
Barely the day started… and it’s already six in the evening.
Barely arrived on Monday… and it’s already Friday.
… and the month is already over.
… and the year is almost over.
… and already 20, 30, or 40 years of our lives have passed.
… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.
… and we realize it’s too late to go back.
So, let’s try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time.
Let’s keep looking for activities that we like.
Let’s put some color in our grey.
Let’s smile at the little things in life that put love in our hearts.
And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy, with serenity, this time we have left.
Let’s try to eliminate the afters...
I’m doing it after…
I’ll say it after…
I’ll think about it after…
We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.
Because what we don’t understand is that:
Afterward, the coffee gets cold…
Afterward, priorities change…
Afterward, the charm is broken…
Afterward, health passes…
Afterward, the kids grow up…
Afterward, parents get old…
Afterward, promises are forgotten…
Afterward, the day becomes the night…
Afterward, life ends…
And then it’s often too late.
So, let’s leave nothing for later.
Because in waiting for later, we can lose the best moments, the best experiences, the best friends, the best family, the best should have beens.
The day is today and the moment is now.
We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone what needs to be done right away.
So, let’s see if you have time to read this message and then share it. Or maybe you’ll leave it for… ′′ later “.
And you’ll never share it.
Well…this is me and I’m sharing. Cuz I get it!
This probably should have been two posts. But this is kinda where my head is right now. In places it probably shouldn’t be, and making no sense of life right now. Don’t judge me. Like I said, it’s been a day. 🤨
Addendum: And the next morning the Universe sent me this. Okay okay! I get it lol. Om. 🙏🏽
I’m chill now. Thank you ❤️
Stay safe. Be kind.
