I was raised to accept the fact that bad things happen to good people, and it’s just how things are. But then now I witnessed on my own two eyes that bad things never happen to good people because good people do not look at it that way. I simply closed a chapter of my life today to begin a new one. It was least expected yet a bit anticipated. It was surprising though that instead of worrying for it, I feel free. Free to finally chase the thing that gives me joy. The business I formed in my thoughts when I was younger, the beautiful possibilities I only daydream of. The longing then continued and then reality has to come-at the right moment and the right reasons.
I had been stubborn too. I denied fate to take control, I had choices after all. Then I realized that failure is not failure per se. Failure is only an instance where you are given the big picture-the picture of a path that you were supposed to follow. There is no failure in life, only directions that needs to be taken. Some directions do not fit us, some are meant to be taken by others, and some directions are just side shows to form memories, to cherish and to be celebrated. There is not a sadness from me at all, only growing anticipation of what lies ahead.
When we move on to a different path we are sad to leave the people we have grown to love and care for. Then I realized, we never leave them. What we have are memories together and that fuels us to go on and make some more. Why does good things have to end, and why do we need to separate ways? We don’t. We only have this one perfect time when we have to chase each of our destinies so we remember one another and we think of the happy days and the changes in our lives, and how each was instrumental in that good change.
Life never fails to surprise me. The happiness is just overflowing. I am proud to say that I made memories of the people I care about and who cares about me, I can only wish to have spent time with every single one of them often. I am ready to take on another chapter. The best is yet to come.
