There are moments in everyone\’s life when everything is good. Going smoothly, too smoothly, in fact, Basically, just Really well. everyone has those moments, the ones, frankly, which are too good to last.
But what happens when you go through a rough patch?
Where things are starting to head downhill, slowly but surely. and All you can do is watch it. Looking back at what was and what it IS. I mean, that\’s off-putting to anyone. The Memories of the little specks of glory, and then turning to face the fading sparks that you feel.
Someone once said: Perfection is this line, this straight line, Our lives constantly go up and down, occasionally hitting this one line, those tiny moments of glory. But we can\’t ever stay there, because before you know it, life moves again.
Pretty deep, huh? But I feel like it\’s true. People say \”Nothing is perfect\” but I disagree. Perfection is as unique as a fingerprint, if you\’re a gymnast, perfection is preforming and getting a gold medal at the Olympics, if your a YouTuber, like me, it\’s having your content watched and acknowledged by millions. If you a writer, perfection is holding the very first copy of your book in your hands…
Before I go rambling, the last thing I want to say is this.
When things aren\’t perfect, like, you\’ve had a injury, your views aren\’t what they once were, you have writer\’s block.
Look back at those moments when your life did hit the line, maybe landing a sweet double twist, or knowing that the views are skyrocketing, having written the one gripping passage that you love.
And then look ahead
I don\’t mean at the fading specks. when your life and \”the line\” are parallel, I mean after that time, when the line moves. Because it will (Believe me, if it didn\’t, life would constantly be boring, sure it\’d be \”perfect\” But in a way, it would just be the new normal)
So, do all you can to change the line, and stay strong, because if you truly love something, the downs are balanced out by the ups. Or even exceeded. So, stick with it, and keep going. Even if you are forced to watch those sparks fade.
Because sparks never die 😉
