“It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us.”
Sometimes it seems pointless to write when it’s been written so much better before. Sometimes I don’t have words. They’re just beyond my grasp and I can feel them, but I can’t write them down. Some moments are wonderful even as the world burns around you.
This is what I’ve been thinking about today: someone told me a few days ago that the fear of saying no (and passing up great opportunities) is a fallacy. That every time we say yes to something, we’re saying no to something else. Maybe I need to reframe things. When I start to inevitably say yes to something else, I should consider what I’m saying no to.
But some things are worth saying yes to.
As Billy Joel once sang, “dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true”.
