The Right Moment

So many of us spend our days waiting – waiting for things to settle down, waiting for that great job or waiting for that perfect person. We wait for the tide to turn, for things to go our way, for life to get back on track. We wait - wait for the Right Moment. But really, what are we waiting for? The simple fact is that there is no Right Moment. We go through life and the ups and downs, the ins and outs, the certain and the uncertainty is what makes life worth living. It’s taking that leap of faith, working through adversity and bravely taking that chance that gives life meaning, purpose and satisfaction. You can't wait for  the adventure, the excitement, or the worth in the living. The truth is, there will never be a Right Moment. So instead of sitting on the sidelines waiting for it, jump in and go for it. Live your life. The Right Moment is now. What are you waiting for?

The thing about truth

The thing about being confronted with an absolute truth is that somewhere deep down in the recess of your soul you knew the truth was there the whole time. How often do you hold on to something – an idea, a thought a wish just because you want it to be true? We go through this life and crash head-on into truths every day. Some we accept, others we deny. Sometimes we want something so desperately that the truth of it cannot break through. Fortunately, or perhaps not so much, the truth inevitably does. And just as there is a natural progression of life, so too is the natural revelation of truth. Will the truth actually set you free? Who can say. But one can be sure that the absolute truth will always come through. What you do with that is entirely up to you.

Friendship or Love?

Just as there is a fine line between love and hate, I have found that there’s an even finer, perhaps even blurry line between friendship and love. With friendship, one has a sense of belonging and acceptance. You have things in common and enjoy similar activities. With love you have all of those but also that something extra - that something special that makes it more than just friendship. There’s connection and comprehension, unconditional forgiveness and understanding. When you love someone, you take the good and the bad, stand by them through the thick and the thin, comfort the sorrow and rejoice in the joy. In love there is the every day and the details. Even if you prefer solitude, you are never alone for your love is always with you. The problem then is mistaking friendship for love. For although you can love your friends, you can only be truly in love with the one that shares your life moments. That’s where the fine line ends, and the blur becomes crystal clear.
