There are many times in our lives when we leave many things or persons that could make us happy pass by and sometimes we’re even aware of that. We’re like, somewhere, deep down in our souls we’d like to keep just the memories of something beautiful instead of a broken heart or a mind full of questions marks.
We’re more than careful, we’re building walls and barriers around us and all we’re doing is fighting with ourselves. And the saddest part is that even if we’d like those walls to be strong and resistant instead of ‘defending’ us, they’re isolating us from ourselves and from the others. Before doing something we’re always asking ourselves: ‘What if I will not succeed? What if I will fall again?’. Most of the times we’re focusing only on the negative parts and we tend to forget that the most valuable things require risk and sacrifices. We forget that the biggest victories also came with a big number of wounded people and that the biggest successes were built with courage, strong will and at any price.
Courage doesn’t have to be only in stories, movies or dreams. Courage can be in us. We must have the courage to stand up even after we’ve fallen for the thousandth time, to have the courage to love, to risk and to stand against anything that can prevent our happiness: ourselves. Even if you want to admit it or not, your life is as you make it. And your acts will also come with consequences. Sooner or later you’ll have to face those consequences.
We’re surrounded with people who are either helping us to grow or dragging us down with them. But the most important is that we can choose those who will be close to us. I prefer to choose beautiful people who will help me stand up, who will encourage me. People who will answer my question ‘What if I will fall again?’ with warmth and kind hearts ‘Oh dear, but what if this time you will learn how to fly?’.
And because I could not help it here are some wonderful verses…
We have time for everything.
Time to sleep, time to run to the right and to the left,
time to regret that we made mistakes and time to make mistakes again,
time to judge others and to absolve ourselves,
we have time to read and to write,
to correct what we wrote, to regret what we wrote,
we have time to make plans and time not to respect them,
We have time to make illusions for ourselves and to stir in the ashes later.
we have time for ambitions and sicknesses,
time to blame the destiny and the details,
We have time to watch the clouds, the advertising or some accident,
we have time to banish our doubts,
to delay the answers,
to break a dream and then reinvent it,
we have time to make friends, to lose friends,
we have time to receive lessons and forget afterwards,
we have time to receive gifts and not to understand them.
We have time for everything.
There is no time for just a bit of tenderness.
when we Care about to do this we die.
I’ve learned some things in my life that I share with you!!
I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you
All you can do is to be a loved person.
the rest … depends on the others.
I’ve learned that as much as I care
others might not care.
I’ve learned that it takes years to earn trust
and just a few seconds to lose it
I’ve learned that it does not matter WHAT you have in your life
but WHO you have.
(Octavian Paler- I have learned. We have time)
