I REALLY DO MISS WHAT WE ALMOST HAD (What if..?)

September 5, 2017

Did you ever long for a memory or story that never was?

 

I sometimes play scenes on my head that seem so convincing at the time, it can bring me to tears. Or uncontrollable laughter! 

 

Not all the time - nor both at once, mind you - I'm still able to hold a conversation most days...

 

 

But that's powerful!

 

What we do sometimes long for is, in fact... possibilities.

 

Possibilities start their life in the realm of the imagination**. And they apply to all areas of your life. It could be the possibility of a new acquaintance becoming a best-friend, it could be finally leaving the job that's sucking you dry.

 

Longing feels good sometimes; I'd sooner feel the sad but warm feeling of dreaming up opportunities I might think will never realize than stay connected to the pseudo-real, brutal and mundane world of everyday life.

 

What or Who decides what path things take, though? I may have more questions than answers, but I will tell you this: some things must be dared before they are earned.

 

And doesn't your mind start singing just with the idea of 'it' becoming reality? ...could it?

 

What if..?
