UnCharted Territory

Saturday, September 16, 2006


Sometimes I wonder what I am doing. There is no direction anymore. I find myself standing one quarter of the way in the circumference of a vast jungle. I have a vague idea where I want to end up in and yet, I have no means of reaching there. I hold in my right hand a very good compass and I carry on my back a backpack with all the necessities I need. And yet, my heart cannot do what my mind knows it is supposed to do.

My feet stay still. I cannot take the first step. I know I have to do something.

I attempt to look past the haziness, the confusion, the temporary blur in my head. I turn to my left…

And I see him.

Standing beside me. Holding my hand. Gently nudging me to step forward.

And I understand.

There are things you do because you want to. There are things you do because you have to. There are things you do for the people you love when you know they need help and do not know how to ask for it. These are things you would rather not do but would still do… for them.

And I realize.

Nothing is worth trading what we want most in life. And that includes what we want at the moment. It is not the length but the depth of life that counts. And depth comes from being able to bring out the best in ourselves.

A Friend's Love says:
" If you ever need anything,
I'll be there."

True Love says:
" You'll never need anything,
I'll be there."
