“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.” – Australian Aboriginal saying
In spite of fearing what I might find if I looked inward, I searched. “Why is your heart overflowing with sadness?”
“Because I feel like I don’t have anymore to give,”
And thats okay.
I found courage in being vulnerable.
As said earlier, thing about life is that, feelings and life itself are not permanent – how do we make the most of it? How do we help make an impact on another person’s life. There may be no higher purpose, but to be loved by the ones who matter and to be able to love them back is at the heart of all things true. To know that we are all going through hardships, and instead of fighting ourselves, how can we use our talents to help the people and world around us.
If we place happiness, as the ends of our pursuit of it – we run into a conundrum because situations will always change. Happiness exists as a derivation, not as an end.
Its okay to feel sad, because we are human and capable of a rainbow of emotions.
Then remember the things that are close to your heart and the limited time you have.
I hope you find solace there.
