Sometimes the smallest things in life can mean a lot. Actually come to think of it, it has always been the smallest things in life that mean a lot for people. It’s just the way the world is. It’s just the way reality is.
All we can do is to live with it.
A lot of you have been telling me to sit back and relax for awhile…which needless to say is a good thing really. I do appreciate the fact that some people take notice enough to tell me not to push myself too hard.
Then again, some of you know better that I don’t usually stop what I’m doing that easily, nor am I a person who knows how to slown down when he’s on the move. It’s not just the fact I am just a stubborn pig, it’s just that when it comes to anything else, I have no reason whatsoever to do anything else except to keep pushing it.
Maybe some of you see it as naive idealism, maybe some of you see it as a needless responsibility, maybe some of you do understand that it really is something that needs to be done and as far as it goes, I’m the only person strong enough to do it. In any case, given my own track record on these things…a lot of you know that once I made up my mind.
It’s just hard to stop.
So in a way, I’m not asking for a reason to rest. I’m not asking for a reason to stop. As far as friends go…all I’m asking is that those of you who know me longest and know me the best stand by me through the times as much as you can and as long as you can. It’s not answers or advice that I need right now, it’s not so much the words of truth or wisdom that I need by me.
It’s the knowledge that I have someone to stand by me in those cold dark nights.
Maybe I’m just a sentimental romantic, which needless to say is pretty dangerous when you’re a person who lives on a hard rock than a soft cushion. But who I am really doesn’t matter to how the future is going to be made, what matters is what I would do now with what have to get to where I want to go.
That’s pretty much it really.
The small thing most people take for granted is something I hold a lot in my life. It’s hard to keep on going when you got nothing else to hold you up and everything is just a little closer to you, but that’s why no one should ever be alone. That’s why we are connected to each other whether we like it or not, whether we appreciate it or not.
We can never be more than who we already are.
But at least with someone beside you to watch your back.
You can be more than you can ever be alone.
That is what I hold on to.
What I always try to hold on to.
