The journey, the moment, the people and the living, not the end that matters

“We are born alone, We live alone, We die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment we are not alone.” ~ Orson Welles

Meditate on that for a moment. People are instantly turned off by the word death and alone. But from where you came, is how you return. There can be comfort in the knowledge that you are solely responsible for your journey on this earth.

There is also beauty in the fact that people add love, validity, weight to your life. The last is the most important, in my opinion – weight –

This weight turns goals into accomplishments, because through the eyes of a loved one we shine brighter. Their love, toward us, gives every day actions meaning.

There acknowledgement gives us grounding in a tense and constantly moving world.

Think of your love journey as an adventure, consider the people you meet and love on the way, as weights needed to balance and give clarity at different moments in your life. These weights/people change over time. You need less or more at given intervals, but it’s all apart of the journey.

In the end, the moments are what shapes our life, not the beginning, the end or how you leave this earth.
