It’s been ages since I posted anything and a reminder from friends like Tosan prompted this post.
The last 8 months has yielded some rather interesting realizations about myself and life in general. I’ve put together a list of things I wish I’d understood much earlier…
Falling in love is very different from truly loving a whole human being.
Death is a form of birth.
Dancing isn’t for fools.
Suffering isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Happily ever after is a myth. The truth is actually about choice and discipline- choosing to be happy and understanding that pain and suffering is as much a part of life as joy and pleasure and both should be “enjoyed”.
Art is life and life is art.
The love of self is the flipside of loving others.
Fear is not a bad thing as long as you’re the one using it and not the other way round.
A broken heart feels the same no matter the age.
Our purpose in life is to understand why we were created and act accordingly. Everybody has a role to play and it all adds up.
