I could watch it all day. Across the horizon glistened a million mesmerizing crystal specs. It had an elusive effect on me.
As the sun descended into the water, the sky \changed colors. A cool darkness crept over the ocean.The moon took over.
I looked into the midnight sky and the stars winked at me. It was about 2am and I was filled with so many questions. I decided to grab a kayak from the clubhouse and star for the water.
The first few waves were heavy and intense. I worried for a moment I would fall into the water. I felt a chilling uneasiness in the darkness. I couldn’t see anyone or anything on the beach nor the water.
I let my apprehension sit and after I got past the first few waves, the rocking subsided and it became very peaceful. I tilted my head back and gazed up into the celestial sphere.
I felt the pull of the sky and a sense of curiosity. I thought of every place I have ever traveled and the how the sky had witnessed my every triumph and failure.
I wondered if my silly stupid life made a difference. Maybe like the star, all I was, was a twinkling spec in the universe.
I open my eyes and feel alive. I wonder if I will ever meet someone who understands me. All I ever wanted was to be understood. I am starting to think that this is part of the meaning of life. The reason why we talk to people, the reason why we yearn to be touched, why we long to be validated, to be seen or understood by someone else. It gives us complete freedom.
Today, I decided to write about this feeling but I think I’ve known about it for a long while. I think it’s important to recognize what you are feeling when you are feeling it. It is a part of one’s self-discovery and is what can both reinforce or rewrite a self-concept, the very molding of who you will become.
It is important to maintain sight of one’s character in the chaos of others and when you find yourself, hold on because no one else is going to except for you.
