Not always the easy way - or at least that's how it seems to go for me.
Trust. One that I truly want to give, but seems to leave me devastated when broken.
I have the knives in my back to prove it. Grey.
The world is a funny place, and our lives seem to take us down some pretty crazy roads. Green.
Putting us back on track when we venture away from our goals - whether we realize it or not.
People come in and out, and if you are lucky they leave an impression. Some positive - others not so much. But if you leave a situation, without learning the lesson - it will come at you again with a vengeance.
Sometimes I seem to take this route. Trust is one of these. I really want people to be who they say they are, I truly want to believe people are good, and not out to harm you. Then I am reminded that unfortunately we do not live in a Beaver Cleaver World. No pleasantville here. Which also means that we have no monochromatic lives.
On the flip side, we do live in a world made up of all colours. Some pretty radiant colours. So when the dark blues and the blacks and greys envelop you, you just have to search out the reds and the yellows. Hell, even the fuschias - for they represent the passion and the joy. And just like yin and yang, good and bad, happy and sad, colours have opposites - blue and orange, red and green. With them we get balance, or ups and downs...
Sometimes lessons don't always reveal their meaning. Sometimes we are just left feeling pretty stupid, and wondering why we are floundering, or why the world is against you.
This is the time where your faith comes out. Hold strong to it - even when it is flickering. Faith in whatever works for you, the kind that runs deep into the essence of your being. That person in the mirror knows what and where that is. That person in the mirror, in the end, is the only one that matters. At the end of the day if you can look yourself square in the eye, and smile and be proud - well the rest is just details...
...that will eventually fall into place...
Now, please excuse me, as I'm gonna go find me a rainbow...
