Never Mind The Audience

Posted on Updated on

avoid the temptation to put on a show

strip down to simple honesty

don’t fool the world

avoid the temptation to hide

your heart knows what’s important

don’t fool yourself

have the courage to be naked

never mind the audience

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.
