becoming infinite

always learning. always growing. always lifting heavy things.

the art of living.

the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

 – henry ellis

from day to day, week to week, month to month, even year to year, the relative importance of certain factors in our lives is constantly shifting. we live in a steady state of flux. yet the only way to conquer life’s uncertainties is to accept them.

i wouldn’t say i’m somebody who holds grudges, but if i get hurt i don’t forget it. not with the intent to use it against the person, but as a self-protective mechanism. you can hurt me once, but i’ll be damned if i’ll let you do it again. i remember to keep myself guarded.

it’s safe to say i’m better at holding on than letting go.

and of course there are some things you want to hold on to – fond memories. the sound of somebody’s voice who is no longer here. the butterflies you got the first time you fell in love.

holding on doesn’t always hold you back.
