Some people live life on a deeper level. They just “get it.” They get what this existence of living is really all about.
Some people see the meaning behind words and emotions – they feel the “moment” that will never be felt again, and they see the beauty behind everyday things in the world that everyone else passes.
I strive to be one of these people.
I want to be an old soul, yet have a youthful vitality. I want to be a deep thinker, yet always have a smile and laugh ready to come to my lips. I want to know how to be quiet and still, yet ready to embrace adventure.
I want to see the beauty behind an old lady’s wrinkles and feel the love in a quick hug. I want to understand and know my child’s heart – despite what they DON’T say. I want to be able to read the pain behind someone’s eyes.
I want to “get it.” I want to understand the universal language of the heart. To know that people hurt everywhere, love everywhere, and dream everywhere… no matter their skin color, or heritage.
I want to see past a race that is known for hate, and decide for myself if someone is good or not, based on how they treat me.
I want to take snapshots and photos with my mind so that I can freeze life’s beautiful scenes even when I don’t have a camera with me. And I want to remember the lessons God teaches me, even if I don’t write them down or share them with the world.
Life. I want to feel it in my bones. See it with my heart. Know it with my mind, and love it with my soul. I want to learn to see in others, what God sees. To see past the judgments, mistakes, and packaging.
I want to love and be loved.
Real living. Real loving. On a deeper level.
This I want to be. This, I seek.
