Patience is a Virtue

Happiness is a beautiful feeling. Cherish it while it lasts. Chase away your fears and you might be happily surprised what comes next. There rarely is a good reason behind most decisions made, but sometimes the wisest choices are the ones that lack rationalization.
You might be happily surprised by who is waiting for you when you step off the plane or in my case jump out of. If you allow the words and actions of outsiders to mandate how you live the carousel ride will never end. Let you and only you guide the way.
However you get to happiness is up to you, just try not to loss sight of it when everyone around you appears more like the wicked witch than friends and family.
There is a lot I could be writing about now, but for the first time in a long time I'm starting to understand why some people carefully create a very private life. It's easier not to get hurt or be humiliated when no one else knows about your failures or broken heart. I've come to respect this quality, but also come to hate the pressures it puts on others.
If you have nothing to hide then what are you protecting? Fear of not being perfect? Are you afraid that everyone will see past the mysterious allure and unlock the truth? The truth is some people try and chase away their fears by jumping out of planes, flying around the world pretending to be someone else, building walls around their heart, being a bully, being stubborn, speaking before thinking, because they are fragile and vulnerable.
We are who we are. This can't be changed. So instead we have to learn to let go and learn to except that not every relationship will end well or with proper closure. You have to pick yourself up and continue making your way in the world minus one. You might actually enjoy the newfound freedom and determination and you never know where the road less traveled will take you.
With Love,
