Ready to suffer and ready to hope

And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!”

And each day, it’s up to you, to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say “No. This is what’s important.”

– I Wrote This For You

Fresh perspective today, after reading some stuff, talking to friends and mulling over it. Thankful, yet perturbed. I need to expose myself to more mature minds, realised that my thinking of late has been so narrow-minded and superficial. No, this cannot go on.

“I am done with my graceless heart/ So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart/ Cos I like to keep my issues drawn/ It’s always darkest before the dawn” – Shake It Out, Florence and the Machine

What I learnt from last night: Every time you feel like falling, fall hard, cry hard and most importantly, don’t run away from your thoughts, no matter how they torment you. The only way you ever get redemption is to be honest with yourself. Open your heart and have the courage to begin again. Today is a better day and I’m glad.
