Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel like a nobody? It’s almost as if you’re just floating along, but not moving towards any sort of destination or goal. It’s like you’re waiting for something big to happen, something that means everything to you and changes everything in the best way. So you just keep on floating, wating for some kind of wave to push you in a direction- any direction, really. And then you’re hit with something- something tiny and unexpected. And you realize that this ocean you’re floating along in, this life that we’re all a part of, actually is something big. It’s something huge. And you were chosen to be a part of it. And now you’ve taken this existence for granted and time has been wasted, just floating away. So now you have to make a decision- do you keep on floating, or do you swim? Swim towards that land that seems so far away, so distant at times, and really make this time you’re givin worthwhile. So you take a step back for a minute and think about what’s just happend in your soul. And you realize, I’m not a nobody anymore. I’m a somebody because of the ultimate Somebody who made this life worth something. And because of this Somebody, you have a hope. You’re not just floating anymore, you’re moving with force towards land. Towards this paradise that once seemed so far away, that you now have a glimpse of. So now you’re just so filled with joy and you have to share it because it’s literally pouring out of you. You can’t even contain it anymore- you just need to share it with everyone. You need to tell these floating souls that they have a reason to swim, to keep pushing on towards something. Something big. And they don’t have to be a nobody. They have this divine opportunity to become a somebody. They don’t have to feel worthless or fearful of drowning, because they will be rescued. We’ll all be rescued if we make that decision to change our course and swim. And eventually, this huge wave of a somebody will sweep over us and wash us up onto the shore of the most beautiful place we could ever imagine. And we never have to float or swim or drown again. Because we’ve been rescued. We’ve been saved from all of our fears.
I just ranted for like 10 minutes. but that’s what I’ve been learning today. :)
Well you know I hardly speak
And when I do it’s just for you
I haven’t said a word in weeks
Because they’ve been keeping me from you
But there’s a way where there’s a will
You know I got no need for stairs
So step out on the windowsill
And fall with me into the air
Here we go
Hold on tight and don’t let go
I won’t ever let you fall
I love the night
And flying o’er these city lights
But I love you most of all
Thrice- A Son For Milly Michaelson
I just came across this quote that a friend sent to me several months ago, and I was reminded of how much I love it.
Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. You have to know that you are a good person and a good friend. What is meant to be will end up good if what is not won’t. Relationships are worth fighting for but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you must move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully, people realize great things when they come around and don’t lose something real. Always fight, until you can’t anymore, and then be fought for.
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
with joy today. Just overflowing, it’s lovely. I just feel like running around and hugging every person I see, so maybe they’ll get some secondhand joy as well. No reason in particular, just because. :)
“Cause you left the frays from the ties you severed
when you say “best friends” means friends forever.”
We made a 12 hour drive home in 9 hours and 40 minutes. Walked into my house to find my lovely mother making waffles. Seven hour nap while cuddling with my best friend. Showered without flip flops on. Bought our tickets to see Brand New in April. Seeing A Day To Remember tomorrow night. Ate my favorite meal for dinner. Now currently drinking chocolate coffee and watching movies with my sisters and best friend. I love being home. :)
