“To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.”

I’ve noticed I tend to say, “I see.” Often, however, I’m actually blind, and it’s usually when the answer is something simple. After all, if the answer is a(in) plain cite doesn’t that mean I’m stating the obvious and wasting my words? What can I see?

“When it’s positioned on the shelf… you’ll see that it’s a child version of myself staring at myself now,” Drake says.

I think when you look back on your decision.. you’ll realize that it was your choice. And that is something that defines you. Don’t give that up. You now have the responsibility and consequences from making your own decisions. My opinion is: you don’t want to “recover” and go back to the way it was before. Maybe some people are a couple of steps ahead of you, maybe they aren’t. Don’t worry about how other people will react to your decisions. You are in control. God is also in control.

Let people into your life. I think you’ll find that they’ll influence you. No, I know they’ll impact you. Many greater than others, many less than others. Some will encourage you, some will discourage you; some will heal you, some will hurt you. That shouldn’t control your decisions though. Sow some seeds and let them grow you. Farmers fight. Nothing was the same.

There is an animal laying on a small ledge beside a deep, flowing river. It somehow glistens in the dim moonlight as I saunter towards it. Slowly wiping away the branches and leaves that obstruct my path, I step out of the trees and pause as I look down upon the animal. It’s a beautiful animal, yet no features betray it in order for it to be categorized with a name. It hums a peaceful melody as its gentle scent infiltrates my senses. As I reach down, two fingers just barely graze its skin. In that brief moment I experience the comfort of a soft, yet firm and reassuring touch. Suddenly, I am startled as the animal slips away from my grasp and scrambles away like a lizard. It tumbles off the ledge as I instantly stretch my neck in order to see its fate. Like a graceful diver it hits the surface of the water and then slowly descends into a mysterious shadow and a remnant of a once intriguing shape. I consider diving in after it despite the vast uncertainty and perilous nature of the river. I could have sworn the animal was just beside me, but now I begin to doubt its existence.

“You cannot miss what you have never had.”

It’s hard for me to remember things after I dream. Even if I have just woken up, the shock and disappointment in realizing that I was dreaming punches me in the head as if to give me a concussion. As I recover from my unconsciousness I seem to have forgotten those precious details of the story. My first thoughts analyze and then destroy the premise that my experience was real when they can’t recover what was once so vivid and energetic. I miss certain dreams.
