In Entirety, for Eternity

“And still, after all this time, the sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with a love like that:
it lights the whole sky.” 


A love that loves entirely, for eternity. It makes everything work harmoniously, acting completely and selflessly. It's the kind of love you see -- in the sun and the earth, in the sky and the sea, in the birds and the bees, between a mother and her offspring -- the kind that lights up the whole sky. Sometimes, it takes the loss of this kind of love for one to realize that it was ever present. It's an irreplaceable, incomparable love; it's a love that doesn't ask to be requited. When a love of this magnitude is left unrequited, it is one of the most heart-breaking kinds of love to endure. It will shine so bright and with such intensity until one day, like any naturally born star, it flames out. And when its light dims from the earth, we are left with darkness. A darkness that makes us wonder how we never thought to appreciate the light that once lit up our world. And in turn, one day, we ourselves will shine just as bright to light up the whole sky of someone else's life -- entirely, for eternity.

"What is meant to be will always find a way."


I am a believer in fate, in destiny. In my personal life, I'm a religious person. I believe in God and I believe in a life that has already been planned out by God -- that wherever our life takes us, it has already been pre-determined and there is a reason for why things are the way that they are. I'm not one to push my religion on others because the modern liberal in me believes that everyone should be able to live their life accordingly -- I pass no judgments, and expect the same respect in return. So if we take religion out of this conversation, then I believe in fate. What's meant to be will always find its way to be because what's already been fated cannot be avoided nor can it be altered. We all become who we are supposed to be.

Think and Reflect

"Hold fast to dream, for if dreams die life is a broken-winged bird, that cannot fly."

Taking a step back.

It's been over a month now since I've returned from Greece, and you might have noticed that I've been posting a little more sporadically than I usually do because I've been trying to churn out all of my Greece posts. I'm still waiting on photos for one last post that I did not take myself, but for the last month I haven't taken blog photos and I'll admit -- it's been a surprisingly nice break. A lot has happened in this last month since I returned from Greece, some of it pertaining to this blog, and it's really helped me put in perspective why I blog. I was having brunch with a couple of my girl friends the other week and they're friends that I've made through blogging. We casually mentioned over our meal that at times blogging becomes exhausting and, lately, it hasn't felt so fun anymore. I feel like the "market" {if you can all it that} for blogging has become so saturated, and people care more about fame than producing quality content or content that is true to who they are. They forget their initial prerogative -- what brought you here in the first place? What was the original dream? A number only means so much if integrity is compromised along the way, and a number only means so much if what you're doing no longer brings you joy. Just a bit of food for your Monday thoughts.
