Would you rather pursue or be woo'd?
There is something inspiring about pursuit.
Whether the pursuit of dreams, of love, of life.
There is something equally humbling about being seen by someone as more than you see yourself as.
A power in being reminded that you can be the moon to someone. That you can show them light in darkness, and not just when it’s already beautiful out.
If I were able to get to choose the way my life works (I’m not, by the way), I would want to be inspired. But being inspired alone get’s old fast. I want to show you the passion you remind me I’m capable of, and then to see what you do with it. There is very little on the planet more deflating, painful, frustrating, and depressing than feeling like you are the only person in the relationship that feels the way you do… You know that you can’t make someone feel what you feel, but you can’t help but hope that the lightbulb goes off for them and they are able to see what you see. And so you wait, at least for what feels like forever. Hoping that if that’s going to happen, that it happens before you take light into the dark with someone who can appreciate your brilliance.
Whether you’re pursuing or being pursued, that’s what it’s about… right?
It’s about seeking out, or being humbled by Light.
It’s about Passion.
The people who make you feel, or want to feel, like you are more than you know how to be of yet.
I want to be inspired to do things I wouldn’t have otherwise. I want to be inspired to grow. I want to think outside of my box for you.
So however I come to know it, I appreciate light.
Stand at the end of a dark tunnel. I will walk towards you.
Stand here next to me and erase the dark, and I’ll stay here and read by you, to you, in you, of you… (and other prepositions, too).
