First I would like to say Thank You to all the people who has been commenting and sending e-mails. It is so nice to hear all the things you guys have to say , specially since some of you literally show and send me so many feelings and strength to keep on going on this great adventure.
Yesterday I was talking to my best friend , she gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl a few months back. We where talking about the changes that come with parenthood and that weird phenomenon that happens to some people who even after you have your baby , you can’t believe he/she is already here.
We where standing next to each other and she said ” I can’t believe she is my baby”. It took me almost 3 hours of no sleep ( lately it seems that trying to sleep is a bit hard because all I thin about is the little mini me)to realize that when someone has a deep feeling and you acknowledge that feeling it eventually becomes a goal or a dream that you start to work on.
Step by step that goal starts to become real until one day you are standing very very close to the finish line. I feel I am almost there , at the finish line , but also being so close to it makes me wonder about al the things that are on the other side of the finish line.
What all those things? … for me is only one thing : change. So you stare at it and embrace it because it is the result of all the little steps you took before reaching your goal.
Is it hard? is it scary? , no need to describe it. In my head and heart all I feel is that change and new things to come are always good , is another step one has to take on the road of growing and living life intensively and fully.
My friend and I usually have those little deep moments when time stops and we just wonder about things. Yesterday she said: 2 We have so many things to be grateful for”, and she is so right. Everyday we hear someone elses reality and we get surprised or scared, and in our heads we think we are lucky. For me , luck has lots of names so I rather say that luck is just a result of thousands of little things we do every day that end up on being a great product.
I heard this the other day and it made me realize how important change is: ” When we say things like “people don’t change” it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It’s always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It’s the way people try not to change that’s unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that’s up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.”
It would be great to hear what you guys have to say about your own experiences when you were approaching to the finish line. What where your thoughts , feelings , fears , sensations???
I feel like a sponge waiting to soak on people’s experiences , thank you for sharing yours.
Have a great weekend! and as usual , thank you very much for reading.
