The time is now. The time is always now.Age is an illusion. Who knows how much time they have left? There is no reason to stop, to give up, to abandon oneself. But it’s only you that can find your way. Your path, your journey is yours alone.
Things will change. Sure. But you can fight and, in the fight, re-find your true self over and over. Letting others, even the other within ourselves, deny us, Rob us of that continued engagement with life is wrong headed. It is not others that define us. It is always, ultimately just ourselves.
I don’t know yet how to renew my zest but I know I can and I must. I chastise others for looking outside themselves for their happiness, for their path…it’s time for me to take my own advice. So what if I have fears, pains, changes in mind and body? I’m still here. I can still matter. And that’s what I’m going to do.
Rage against my own latitude. My own willingness to waste the little time we’re granted. Waste the gifts were given. Because there’s no purpose? Meaning? Destiny? Here. Now. Has to be enough.
