Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope you are enjoying a lazy morning like me before chaos ensues. It's that calm before the storm when you start running here and there to accomplish all the things we don't have time to do the rest of the week! And then there are some who work on Saturday just like every other day of the week, to you, my hat is tipped and I admire your endurance to go forward as the rest of the world rests. But we each have our own station in life and cross to carry. We each have our own responsibilities and demands. So I raise my cup of coffee to each of us, and may each of us fulfil our roles with grace, dignity, and positive influence on the world around us.
How do you live after you fall in love?
How do you breath after you drown in someone's arms?
How do you move when they stop you in your tracks?
How do you become whole again once you give yourself away?
Your life is not your own any more.
Your breath is gone.
Every step you take, you carry them with you.
You never get back that which you freely gave away.
Can you be happy if they are not with you any more?
Can you come back to the surface and breath new air?
Can you move forward in life when they are no longer by your side?
Can you ever be whole again?
In our life, we give pieces of ourselves away. Everyday. We can't take those pieces back. It's how we make the world better, or worse; but they are irretrievable once we leave them behind.
Everyday we receive pieces of others into our own life. Some good, others bad. They make us who we are. They mold, shape, and frame our life. They transform the pieces of ourselves we give away in the future to others. This is everyone's impact and legacy they leave behind.
Sometimes, we exchange good parts of ourselves for the bad in others. Sometimes vice versa. And sometimes it's an even trade, good for good, bad for bad.
We must guard against taking in the bad of others. We cannot transform it into something good. We will give bad away to another. This is toxic. If we take in too much bad, then we ourselves become toxic.
