A Bittersweet Paradox

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes the perishable nature of life hurts.

Every exciting step towards future adventures naturally demands a step away from what used to be.

That is just how it is. If we want progress, we have to let go.
And I want to let go.

I want to embrace that fleetness and move freely through the ever-changing landscape of my life.

I love the process of turning the kaleidoscope and see a new reality come into focus.

At the same time I’m saddened by the fact that I have to say goodbye.

I’m mourning what has been and maybe even worse, what could have been.

What makes my heart sing is also what makes it cry.

Such a bittersweet paradox.

    All poetry aside, what happened to becoming full of a thing and moving on ‘cos you’ve had it and you’ve been there? Why this preempt flavour of you advancement recount? – just wondering…

    Well, I’m not sure. For some reason and on some days I can’t help but to look back and feel the pain of moving on. This is not the overall tendency though and the fact that I’m observing it does not mean allowing it to dictate. It’s there, I feel it and at some point I will get to the bottom of it..
