We walk towards things, often unknown.
Choosing to stay, or maybe leave after a while.
But that’s not the part that matters.
What matters is what you leave behind.
Happiness, hope, love, respect – that’s all that it takes.
To maybe give someone something worth remembering you for.
Touching lives can simply be a hello and goodbye kind of thing.
But touching hearts – it’s not that simple.
Because it takes more than just a couple of words.
It means giving part of yourself to someone to hold onto.
And every time you do that, it makes you have to decide.
To choose what exactly would be worth it.
And sometimes, you have no idea.
And that’s why we often choose not to stop.
We prefer to keep walking.
But what if you chose differently someday.
Say you wanted more than just a conversation?
What’s the key to succeeding?
Is there a magic spell of some kind?
Truth is – nobody knows.
And there’s no way to be sure.
But as far as I know,
It’s all about giving.
Giving without expecting anything in return.
Of course, that’s easier said than done.
But go ahead, give it a try.
Open yourself up to what lies ahead.
And when you do come across something, don’t just pass by.
Instead challenge yourself.
Embrace the feeling.
Let down the walls.
Break if you have to.
Because it might just make you stronger,
Or give you one hell of a story to tell.
Take it from me – it’s totally worth it.
But then I too am just like you.
A dreamer. A realist. A wanderer.
Walking through life, one day at a time.
Redefining who I am with every encounter,
And putting together the pieces of the puzzle.
Till then, I continue to walk.
Hoping to see where all of this leads to someday.
Maybe it’s not what I have in mind.
But whatever it is, I’m sure it will be a masterpiece
And hopefully then, it will all make sense.
The stops made. The chances taken. The things left behind.
So, the next time you need to make a choice, think about this-
It is scary, but you never know how it fits into the whole picture and what you will find.
Make that one thing matter. Because for all you know, it might just end up being the one thing that matters the most.
