LIFE GOES ON, SHOULD WE CHASE IT?

There are some people who lead their lives as if they’re going to miss the last train.

There are some people who lead their lives as if they’re going to miss the last train.

Don’t misunderstand me, I don’t mean those who live a fast life; I mean those who forget the pearls in their drawer while they try get hold of each oyster they find as if there will be a pearl in it.

Those who take constant leave to see new places. They go on holidays, than once they’re back, instead of enjoying the fatigue of the trip, they start planning a new one. They just whine about the places they haven’t seen yet.

They love and they’re loved but they just can’t settle. Then comes the internal restlessness followed by exhaustion after starting to get scared. They’re scared of losing their freedom.

Whereas…

Whatever we do will stay there.

However much we increase our belongings, there will be always more things to buy; we never finish buying.
Whomever we love there will be others expecting to be loved.

To cut it short, it’s not easy to accept but life will just slide through our fingers.

At this age I know better and it’s not really very important not to be able to live all that one couldn’t.
BUT what is important is….

How well we lived, what we lived.

We may have had a great breakfast in Bodrum, or dinner in Paris, or brunch in Verona, wherever… The important thing is, how did we sit at those tables? Was it with a washed face but a dirty soul?

We may have experienced a lot of lovemaking, but have we really kissed them with all the love we feel for them?

Is it easy to replace losses?

What if we just hold on to what we really have and be grateful?

What if we‘re losing a love which was a gift for us just because of our identity struggles?

Then we are in trouble…

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
