It’s moments and people and experiences that make us feel so connected and so secure and so happy.
The truth is—it is all fleeting.
When they say enjoy the good time, embrace the moment, truer words were never spoken.
One day you’re in love and happy, and the next you may never see that person again.
Change, death, and fear—they will always be a part of the experience we call life.
But you can’t appreciate the good and the light if you’ve never suffered in the dark.
These fleeting moments give us an opportunity to feel, to be human, to grow and to change and maybe even to find the strength inside of ourselves that we never knew we had.
To find our true friends in life, we must uncover the people that are willing to sit in the darkness with us instead of always calling us back into the light, when perhaps we are not ready.
When it comes to matters of the heart entailing emotion and growth—this is not something that can be pushed or rushed.
You grow from pain, so do not let fear draw you away from your experience!
Just as the lotus pushes through the mud, we must wallow in the mud of our experience to find the light blossoming from our hearts on the other side.
