Where do we go from here?
Your mind remains restless upon years of emotions and thoughts you believe you will not escape from. Time seems to be at a standstill and you remain glued to the notion that it will not get better.
Jump 2 days into the future, a year, a decade, now what? Do you remember every moment when you thought that you were trapped? Every Split choice or second which causes you to second guess yourself. Trust me, you’re not alone.
Life is a bumpy ride, we are trying to survive every day but that doesn’t mean that we are trapped or cannot escape. We undergo so many changes in our life that everything seems to be temporary.
They say nothing ever truly lasts. Year’s go by and that small boy I once was underwent puberty, graduated elementary, middle, and high school. You begin to mature as responsibilities are thrust your way and yet we forget where we came from.
I am reflecting on it all today.
I remember when I first started this blog, almost 3 years ago. I was going through a rough point in my life and felt hopeless. I believed I understood love when I was strongly mistaken. I began to change and also to write. I learned what my passion was and to this day it manifests itself.
We are not a moment in time, we are storytellers, history makers. We forge and define history and it grows based on our perceptions.
Many years scurrying through the dirt and picking up the pieces unsure of what we can be, what I could be. I’ve begun to see that the reality of my life is here now, today. Tomorrow will come on its own but why concern my whole life on tomorrow. I can merely prepare and have my goals but today I move every step of the way. Time cannot control or define me. Though I am known by my past, it does not define my future or reveals who I am in the present. I have grown, changed.
We are all in this together and if we continue to see our limitations as a prison we will not escape from them. There is the reality of what we face but at times we are called to rise up, continue past and free ourselves from the chains of our minds. We may need help at times and that is when we must learn to trust in others no matter what transpired in the past, everyone is not the same. We are each walking along the path but may take different routes, don’t lose your way or feel like you cannot go any further.
I write this not only for others but encouragement for myself. Year’s from now I want to look back and know my words were not empty attempts to fill the void or space. Learn to speak and speak with the intent to be heard, to have meaning, such as it is with the words I write, and so I answer the question, we keep going and only get stronger from here.
