Wouldn’t Miss It for the World

Leave a comment


You may say this is the most careless entry I have ever written by far – or not – but I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

***
The complications of life – most of us just wanted to give in, grab that easy way out, and end the piece. It affects us mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually even, to the point that we’d rather find an escape than a solution. But however difficult life gets – do not miss it for the world. Do not waste your chance to witness how you could flourish from a downside to a victory; how you’d transition from the gutter to the top of a mountain; how you’d bloom from a damsel in distress to a beauty with posh elegance. Carry on. You only have this life to maximize.

Love comes your way and you’re sure it is love – it’s scary and you’ll always wonder if you are ready for that battle. We ask ourselves if we are strong enough to get hurt, to trade our own happiness for the benefit of another, to give in to vulnerability that we have carefully spared. But if there was a chance and a choice to love – choose to love. It may be unsafe to get out of your shell and gamble, but it has always been safe to love genuinely, innocently and unconditionally. If there was that chance, do not miss it for the world.

You used to dream, but things started to look bleak. You had aspirations, yet shit happened. Every person we converse with profess of giving up and stopping. They’ve lost all hope and decided on getting second bests. It appears that raising the white flag is the most suitable option. But deep inside, something stops you from going with the flow. A voice in your head asks, “What if?” What if I don’t back down? What if I stay as meant and watch my destiny be fulfilled? What if I don’t listen to the quitters and fight until I win? What if I lose some but end up actually gaining everything at the end of the tunnel? They creep you like a nightmare and you’ll always have that nagging feeling until you finally make up your mind and say, “I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

To the one who has the fear of being left – how intoxicating would it be to feel left. The mind messes with its whole system until the host losts hold of sanity. They all say, “I will always be here.” They all say there won’t be goodbyes. Sometimes, it is best to drive people away before you fully let them in the circle – putting your guard up as a defense mechanism. ‘Cause sooner or later, they will leave; they will find better paths, even better companions; they will discover new territories with someone else; they will explore unchartered places in the lack of your presence. They will go, one way or another. And then you ask yourself, “Why do I keep trusting?” Why do I still choose to care? Why do I keep on serving when no one reciprocates? Why do my loyalties keep on in tact? It’s because at the end of the day, we can project that something is greater than that fear. It is faith. Faith in people. Faith in yourself. Faith in your God. Beyond this fear, you can say, “I may be afraid, but I won’t miss it for the world.”

***

Don’t hold back, child. Maybe, just maybe, there is something beyond those doubts, those fears, those questions. Either way, do not miss it for the world.
