Once there was a wise man who shared his wisdom to the world, “ Romance can die, but never passion”.
In fact, many things in the world can come and go, but passion should thrive because it is so critically linked to happiness. It’s one of the most important ingredient to a happy life, and it is the fuel of someone’s motivation and drive. Truly, any passion is a great boon to a life one is trying to pursue.
We know what it’s like to live in castles inside of our heads. The people you see on the streets walking past you, they may have castles of their own, too. We spend a lot of time living in there, and who we are when we’re alone is often a reflection of what is going on inside. Other people think we’re restricting ourselves by building castles, or that we’re “living too small”, but we think that it’s comforting to have something that’s just us, to have a space that only we and our Maker deeply know. It’s how we process and survive in this vast world: we live in our castles and build windows, so that we can see far out the fields but still be content with ourselves, with what has been given to us.
See, castles aren’t bad at all. But there comes a day when we must swing open the doors and let some people in, into a deeper degree of intimacy with us. Along with that comes great pain, letting people see what is inside of us for the first time, even if we only let those we really really trust in. What most people like us don’t realize is that our castles inside aren’t as messy as they are in our heads. They, instead, can be a warm, comforting sanctuary for those we have allowed to enter in.
As the traditional wedding mantra goes : Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. This describes the four objects a bride should have with her on an auspicious wedding day. Originated from the olden days, each item stands for a symbolical significance which varies from evil protection, fertility to curse repellent. Yes, dramatic we know.
But ( thankfully) these special items have taken on slightly different and more meaning today. Something old can be translated to continuity, something new stands for optimism in the future, something borrowed means happiness and something blue represents love.
