I hope I never know.
There is beauty in not knowing. And by that I don’t mean ignorance. I mean, patience in disguise.
Not knowing what’s around the corner. Instead, waiting for it.
Not knowing whether you will win or lose.
Not knowing if you’ll break a heart or have yours put together.
Not knowing that there is a song out there in the future which will replace your most favorite lyrics.
Not knowing that there is a countdown to all your breaths. That there is a clock ticking. That every single thing you do, matters.
Because only when you rise above it, when you learn to traipse through life, will you have lived. Truly. Honestly. Without expectations. Without barters. Without excess thought. Without noise.
To have moments which pass you by, allowing you to catch them….. just for a bit. And then slip through your fingers…… what’s life if not that.
It’s the little things.
The shapeshifting nano particles of pure joy which come and go and catch us unawares.
Because we weren’t looking for them.
So, I hope I never know.
This is my wish for the new year.
This is my wish for every year.
