Do you really want to go back?
I remember the days when sleeping, running, laughing, falling, crying and playing are done without any hesitation. Those were the times when I play in the park without any fear. I used to stand on the swings and move my body in a way that would almost make me feel like I was flying in the catatonic atmosphere. Yes, those ecstatic times are done. They can only be relieved now.
However, neither will I choose to go back to those times. It’s not that they’re bad; it’s just that life is not about stability. I always hear people say, “I wish I could go back (to my childhood life.)” It’s not bad, wishing to go back. What’s bad is complaining about today while appreciating the past.
Why? Because every time we ignore what’s in front of us, in order to believe that what’s on our mind is better, we show how ungrateful we are for every little thing that we’re blessed with.
Yes, just move on. Spare yourself from the misery of memories and solipsism.
Victorious people are those who fail but never allowed failure to be the end of their stories.
They know how it feels to be broken by wrong choices.
They understand that the world was created not for happiness but for learning.
They try making things right despite of all the discouragements.
They allow themselves to feel sad knowing that there are seasons in life.
They love without any expectations of being loved in return.
They smile with a broken heart because they value the light that radiates through others.
They are fearful but they never let fear take over them.
They don’t have the confidence but they face life with courage.
They have faith even on the enigmatic, inexplicable matters.
They believe in the vanity of life but still, they choose to live it to the fullest.
If am to live another life, I’ll still choose to live in this place.
I know that earth is just a dust within an incomprehensible universe. But for me, it’s too big to be taken for granted.
