Hello dear blogger’s and amazing readers,
There are so many articles and books that tells you how and when to fall in love. You’re told not to rush into love unless you will crash and burn. They say only fools fall in love. If you rush into love, you’re bound to come out screaming and in stitches. Well you see, they’re right.
But how possible is it to live without a few bruises and stitches every once in a while ?, Instead of always coming out with little cuts and lasting scars, why don’t we just go head in and get burnt fully ?.
Love is a fragile and delicate thing. It can destroy and it can kill. It’s timeless, it transcend beyond the realm of time. One step you make today out of love, whether for a person or a cause, is enough to spark a burning revolution.
You might ask why should I fall in love with someone who might hurt me ?
A mother doesn’t question the destiny of her child when he/she is born. She doesn’t request for a priest or a psychic or a mage to read the palms of the child to know whether or not the child would bring her pain and be her ultimate downfall. Instead she blesses the head of the child and gives the child a gift, a name, which will protect and guide the child forever.
She loves and adores her child no matter the situation. Even when he cheats, steals, kills or destroys, she would scold the child and tear her eyes out but never, not once, will her heart bear hatred for her child. When she is asked by others how she could love a child that has cause her sorrow, her response is a smile and a tear. She would simply ask ‘is it possible to throw away one’s heart ?’
Walk in Love….
Walking is love is safe, too safe. When you walk you’re given the opportunity to turn back, to go back where you came from. The door is still open and your path is clear. You are weighing the pros and cons. Every single step you take is full of doubt and uncertainty. Anytime you hear a cream in the wall, you’re ready to turn around. Walking in love is nice, at least for those who have forever to live. For the rest who live life on the high sea and are going to ride the high tides till the end, they fall in love.
….fall in love
Movies have the wrong idea of love. There are no shinning star and fortunate event. There is simply you and the next person.
The next person is the woman you helped on the bus.
The homeless man who you buy breakfast for every morning.
The next person is the store who is suffering losses during this Covid lockdown, but anytime you need something you walk down there to buy it.
The next person is your classmate who doesn’t have enough to eat but is surviving because you’re there for them, even in the most little way.
The next person is y our neighbor who needs a listening ear, the child who usually plays in the mud in your street.
The next person is the life you’re saving by raising a placard to protest for everything that is wrong in your society.
The next person is the child your signed petition for Pro life is saving.
The next person is your course mate who is stranded and needs materials to read but you always share.
The world is going to keep being a prison of insecurities and fear unless you fall in love. Unless you force the shackles that have been placed on you.
Live to the extreme and love to the limit.
You might be frightened because you’re trying to protect your heart but your heart isn’t just the organ pumping blood in your body. Your heart is the people you live for, those you’re ready to die for. Those people that are always in your thoughts and your prayers. Even if your organ stops working, those people will keep living for you.
When you fall in love, fall in love with your soul, heart and body. Give everything and in return, you gain everything.
When you find your perfect person or your perfect cause, don’t let the limitations and restrictions of life hold you down. Your bones might get broken and your flesh burnt, but in the end, it’s always worth it.
