Good day everyone, it’s Leon R.M. Auguste again. I wanted to share this post uploaded a while back. I decided to repost it because I felt like it was relevant to the times we live in. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
I feel myself steadily slipping into the abyss of life. It’s a great feeling really, I feel as though I’ve finally begun to see people for who they really are, for both the positives and negatives. It’s as though there’s a whole other world out there with endless possibilities, yet it’s a hidden realm. The reality of our lives is that we’re faced with adversity and obstacles at every turn. It’s a world riddled with riddles and marred with the inevitability of the world’s reality.
You see, there are numerous ways a person’s day could go. The probability that it could all end today is an authentic reality. Yet that’s what makes life so enticing and enthralling, the rush and thrill of the chase, of the unknown variables lurking and hiding just beyond the bend. It’s one of the most extraordinary things about life. There’s a sort of maddening sense of things to come, yet nothing ever does come. It’s a feeling of a new day arriving, and in fact, that new day does finally arrive – but not the way you would have expected it to.
There are times in which I wonder if life really is all about the small details. Perhaps it is; maybe I’ve been living life all wrong. I’ve always looked for the bigger picture, the grand opportunity to grasp a hold of something in which I know very well could be out of my humanly grasp. Yet I reach out to it nevertheless, knowing full well the risks and possibilities of it all coming down.
Should we pick the pieces up? The details of our silently broken lives? Or, should we recreate a new self? A new self in which we can try and attempt to fill the void of nothingness in our hearts? To fill it with senseless materialistic items which will never satisfy our actual wants and needs in life?
Of course, I can go on and on, but I think it’s better to just assume that there are worse fates out there. Futures in which people must face their lives with humiliation and defeat, uncertainties in which there are no possibilities for hope to grow again. It’s both a beautiful and cruel world. Yet, when one looks closer upon a second glance, they see the world for the first time ever.
So I’ll end with this: whatever you decide to do with your life, do it with full knowledge that you’re taking a leap of faith in risking it all. Do it wholeheartedly, and know that you won’t come out of this unscathed. Life has too many variables to consider, after all. Still, if you think upon such facts of life for too long, you’ll never get to actually living your life.
Forever in Your Debt,
Leon R.M. Auguste
