Little M and his hangouts with the pumpkins!
I’ve learned more about life in general over the last little bit, what a surprise there lol. I mean, for a little while I’ve been able to predict how my days would go with my family and friends. For the most part I even had the conversations down pat. Recently I had a conversation with someone I happen to be very close with, and the words were there, I heard them, but they didn’t form an actual sentence. They didn’t sink in. I was in shock.
But that’s the best part of living; whether it be good, bad or indifferent shock, it reminds us that we are still alive. That instead of just existing, or going from day to day; we are living.
When the world shakes us, when people try to destroy us, when we no longer know which way is up; these are a few of the times we shine. This is when all of our practice from falling off of bikes or out of trees as a child comes into play. When we were learning how to ride the bike, we had no fear; until we fell. But that’s when we learned to try again. The same is for walking, we fell so many times! I bet in the mind of an infant or a toddler we would never conquer the quest of walking, yet we did, and now we run. As adults we need to learn, and practice the same exercises; but this time with our hearts and minds. We can’t stop picking ourselves off the ground, for if we should do that, we will never know happiness. Life isn’t all bad, but there sure are bad times. In the bad times, hang onto the good. Family, friends, love, laughter, hope; these are the things that make us grow, make us stronger. And even at crossroads of life, we will always have that to hold onto.
Well that’s my deep thoughts of the night, I’m proud to say, I’m still living; can you say the same?
