An Afternoon in California

What if you could pick one day of your life, and everything world stop changing, every day would be similar and comparable to that one day, you’d always have the same people with you? If you could do that, would you do it? Would you pick that day and make that choice? We crave for things to stop changing, we wish that things would never change. But if we got what we wanted, there are so many things that are better, that we would never, ever know about. Sure, things would stay the same as that one wonderful day, but then there would be nothing else out there, ever. So can you remember the very first day when everything really did begin to change? Is there a thing that can remind you? Mine is a blue rose, and that’s when everything began to change because that’s the day I began to believe in things I never believed in before; the day I found three blue roses. Think about your first day of change, can you remember all the new heights you’ve soared since that day? All the new people? All the better things and times? Would you throw all of that time away? I wouldn’t. Instead, I want to finally accept all the things that I couldn’t change, which led to me being right here, right now. Maybe we all carry around inside us one day we wish we could keep forever, something we wished never did change. It’s time to let go of that day, and soar.”

  1. Nice post. We can change things to be better if we want, but sometimes we follow fruitless things, hoping it may be better. When we let that go and embark on new things, there we see how beautiful the world is. Thank you.

  2. Thank you Liberian Me for the post. It made me realize I want it all. How it was, how it should have been, how it is, how it will be. Wanting too much, expecting too much, trying too hard does not lead to happiness.

    AnnMarie Roselli-Kissack, your comment is perfect.

    Thanks to both of you for your words.

  3. We are lucky if we like where we are, we are blessed if we’ve loved where we’ve been, we’re fearless if we want to seek more…
    Beautiful and introspective post, Simon. I hope all your dreams are coming true.
    AnnMarie 🙂
