Big Risks

The last few weeks have been the tumultuous conclusion to a storm that began the beginning of this year. I haven't wanted to talk about it but instead have written a few poems that will probably remain in my draft folder forever. Like the emo person that I can be at times, I figured that I might as well give up since I had lost hope and just keep my head down and push on.

You know that feeling you get when you meet someone and immediately click? That happened last week and I feel like I met a partner in crime - someone who wants to run from the status quo as much as I do. On the one hand it's so exciting and overwhelming because I feel like an oddball most of the time so to find a "kindred spirit" was a huge shock to me but it's also scary. People that are constantly moving, growing and changing have the potential to outgrow those around them leaving you in the dust. It reminds me of the quote from Narnia about Aslan not being safe because he is a lion - I feel like a lion who has met another lion. In between the excitement and hope there is great fear that comes but as Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger said in GoT last night "I would risk everything to get what I want". You can't avoid pain in life so you might as well pursue what you want and hope for the best - hope that synchronicity of growth and spirits is perpetually attainable.
