I’ll be leaving tomorrow, and even though it’s for a mere 10 days, I think many of the original assumptions I once held, and am holding now will be subjected to constant modification over the course of the following days. Something inside me tells me that I will be prepared for this, and my life is in such a massive state of flux now that I can no longer see what the next day holds. But you know what? if there’s something 2013 has taught me, that is I’ve learned to be okay with uncertainties and I’ve learned to be okay with people changing and letting go. Because you can only move forward when you’re not busy lugging a baggage twice your weight, you can only stride forward comfortably when you’re not occupied with looking back. Teleology? We all like to believe that mankind is always in a state of progress. To each his own at the end of the day. No matter what people tell you, remember that this is your life.We are a product of our own experiences, tinged by encounters with people we meet, be it fleeting or permanent, there’s a reason for everything-but you need not know the reason.Sometimes, just feeling, and loving is enough. Permanence is not important, and fate does not ensue in a vacuum. At the end of the day, I pass back the steering wheel of my life to the big guy upstairs and lean back, to enjoy the ride.
Life and its uncanny ability to render all of us insignificant when all we are, but flesh and blood attempting to be indestructible, when really we are specks of dust, particles exchanging oxygen in this temporary place we call earth.
