forever ending

Some things are forever and you just know, from the very first spark, that it will just always be. When you find those things, those people, you only need to recognize it for what it is. It is forever. My Sir… He is that, we are that. Despite my numerous insecurities, I know it to be true.

The flipside of that beautiful piece of certainty is the fact that some most things just are not meant to last.

image

That is a lesson learned pretty early in life, I think. Beloved pets die. The best toys get broken. Favorite trinkets become lost.

For some, that lesson is just a fleeting blip on the way edge of the radar. For others, it hits a little harder, and evolves into an ever-present worry. Constant anticipation and anxiety, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Because drop, it does.
It always drops.
Sooner or later, that last fucking shoe hits the ground and crushes everything in it’s path… hopes and dreams…the whole shebang.

Knowing things don’t last, knowing the other shoe wil drop… What do we do with that information?! What the hell can we do?!

I’m beginning to think there are only two choices:

We can worry and hunker down, waiting and wondering when it’ll be over. Biding our time until the good turns to shit.

image

Or we can squeeze every drop of blood out of this life and hope that it is enough to cling to when everything goes up in flames. Just enjoy the good moments, never giving thought to the inevitable end.

image

Which do I choose? Ha! Like I can make a decision! Please! I vacillate between them both. Bouncing from one end of the spectrum to the other. Overcome with worry, then ignoring everything but the present moment.

image

It’s rather exhausting.

Today, I am feeling a sad, resigned worry. A gnawing, heavy worry.

image

But in true Gemini form, I am also feeling an overwhelming sense of reverence and gratefulness for the things I know to be steady and solid.

image

And to my Sir… Thank you for knowing just what I need, even when I don’t have a clue.

Happy Tuesday.

  1. Hello Shygirl, subtastic post and so true. I to am a Gemini so I understand what you mean. Life isn’t easy in itself but I have learn’t in this journey that I take each day one at a time and live it. I will not let myself worry about things that may happen and what I cannot change or control. Shit happens but if we look at it negatively all the time we dig ourselves deeper mentally and lose focus on what we can do to change things in a positive direction. Believe in yourself and what you can do and let your Sir help guide you to keep that positive frame of mind and outlook. Take care lady Lt
