I came across this quote today that really resonates with me, it seems as if I’m always searching. Searching for supreme happiness, or always waiting for the next shoe to drop.
I won’t let myself fully embrace the happiness and wonderfulness that is currently present, that is there and allow myself to enjoy it because I know how fleeting it all can be, how easily everything can stop on a dime and suddenly turn the other way. Fleeting…think about it, everything is easily fading. Anyone can be forgotten and fade into the background, just like wallpaper. If you stay still long enough, most people just forget. Either forget or you turn into a fond memory and are like, ‘what about that guy?…’ what is true in life? Will there ever be anyone left standing and waiting after a terrible car accident takes the cheerleader right out of her sneakers only leaving behind nothing more than a megaphone? Which are actually only memories of a time long ago, a time before everyone got too busy developing adult lives to realize that you’ve been left behind.
But being left behind isn’t so bad. Sometimes when you are “left behind” you actually get a chance to move forward and turn your life into something much better than you’ve every imagined it to be.
I didn’t know you when you were a cheerleader, but you are a beautiful, Christan woman now.
