A Grown-up Vision
As we grow up we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to let you down probably will. The illusion of your expectations for this person will be more than the reality of their abilities.
You will love and be loved many times and will have your heart broken probably more than once and it will get harder every time. You will break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You will argue with your best friend, a relative, and a stranger; and then not be able to recall the reason. You will blame a new love for things an old one did, because it is easier to project the hurt on to another than to fix it or take responsibility for it yourself. You will cry because time is passing by you too fast, and you will eventually loose someone you have loved very dearly.
No matter what the current emotion with in you , feel glad for your awareness of it and know that at anytime, in any place, or under any circumstances you can choose to improve that moment. So take too many pictures, laugh too much and too loud, and love like you have never been hurt; because every sixty seconds you spend unhappy is one minute of your life’s happiness you can never get back. This moment is now, yesterday is gone, and the future has not begun. As you move through your day to day, be aware of the feeling of emotions that float upward into your conscious awareness, and acknowledge their enormous value to you in your life. Become one who is happy within that which you are and that which you have, while at the same time being eager for more. That is the optimal vantage point; to stand on the brink of what is to come, feeling the eager, optimistic, anticipation with no emotions of doubt, unworthiness or impatience hindering the receiving of it. Don’t be afraid that you life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
