It’s interesting how one day you’re picking up pieces of heartache, then the next (well…not LITERALLY the next day) you’re drowning it out with distractions. What? You wallow in your self-pity and emotional turmoil? Nah. Pull up your thong (cuz I don’t do the granny panties and nor should you) or your boxer briefs (cuz, yes please) and get over it.
Life doesn’t stand still. I have to keep it in motion so I can filter out the stuff that makes me sad. Some may say that this is an avoidance technique and that one day all the unaddressed sadness will come crashing down on me…And I say BS. Because I’ll continue to address it…only I’ll not let it control or dictate my life. Everyday it will get a little easier…I’ll give sadness/heartache the love it deserves…then I’ll fucking obliterate it with sarcasm, wit and LIFE. That’s what strong women do. They keep on keeping on. There are no fairy tales here. There are just human beings with complicated emotions who have a choice to “seize the day” or stand frozen in time. And I hate the cold so freezing is NOT on my list of things to do, ever.
So, the proverbial “you” do have a choice. The choice is to take steps forward and try to not let happiness pass you by, or choose to stay grounded in hopes that what you had wished would have happened might come to fruition if you just don’t move. The problem with the latter is that it won’t. It will never come to fruition if you force it. Because the result of force is fake. My grandpa used to recite to me a saying about how “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink…” And I subscribe to that philosophy every day when shit doesn’t go my way. We’re not God/Universe/Allah/Buddha…and I’m pretty sure that all those other-worldly entities would “teach” us to let go…because they’ve all said it in one form or fashion. Case in point:
“In the end, these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?” ~Buddha
“Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.” Proverbs 4:25-27
“What is meant for you, will reach you, even if it is beneath two mountains. And what isn’t meant for you, won’t reach you, even if it is between your two lips.” ~Quran
“Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.” ~someone you nor I know.
And I don’t know what the fuck the Universe says…I think it just laughs and tells you to suck it up. Fair enough. That’s what the other entities basically said, too.
Bottom line – Life is WAY too short. Waking up in regret and fear of losing is not a feeling I ever want and I suspect the proverbial “you” don’t either. So, on with life I continue. Join me, will you?
