but you see
sometimes,


when we're really busy
- way too busy -
with life;
living life, catching life,
being what life needs us to be,


we stop.




and look around.
and realize


that maybe this isnt
what ive always wanted


(even though it is)
but maybe it isnt.




and then we look around
i look around
again


and realize
maybe, just maybe
that what i want most in this world


is difficult,
but not impossible,
to obtain.


that if i really, really, really
want to do something,
i should.
no matter what it costs me.

even if it means
dealing
with a lot of obstacles
with some disapproval
with my weaknesses

because
what if its worth it,
in the end?

:) That was so nicely written. Perhaps, we do miss out on so many things. We are always confused, and lost between what we want, what we get, and what we need.

Life is short...we are young. Let's act young and try out as many things as possible.

Yes. I ride my bike everywhere. I love her so much!

Great expression leading the reader on with the doubtful feelings and a state of indecision.Lovely to read and was worth it in the end.

Your post touched me, more than you know. Ive been dealing with a very simmilar thought.

"and realize


that maybe this isnt
what ive always wanted


(even though it is)
but maybe it isnt."

What if it is worth it? Well, I think we should just leap and trust... if it wasnt worth it, then we´ll always be able to pray we can come back to what we had.
