Sometimes we fail. Sometimes we succeed. But we cannot dwell on these events. Sometimes we need to leave our pride and shame behind, to bring clarity to every smaller moment, to every day. Successions and failures do not make a person. It is the simple things, the moments filled with not a soaring rush of victory or the cold hand of an opportunity lost, but the times in which we stand tall, look at the sky and remember the earth. Remember love. Remember that life happens to everyone. Remember that everyone bears the burdens of victory and failure, the pressures brought upon themselves. So look at the sky. And when you do, remember that you are never alone. That the earth carries many footsteps, paths that twist and intertwine. Our paths may cross one day. And when they do, please look at me, smile and remind me to look at the sky. Because when we look at the sky, we remember.
Wishing everyone a happy friday!
