daydreaming

I don’t know how you are so familiar to me—or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before—in another time, a different place, some other existence.”

now more than ever i feel out of place. i’m not sure if it’s because i feel an impending change creeping up on me. or if it is because i’m uncomfortable with my life and there are some changes i need to make. i can’t quite place it. but whenever i feel this way i like to think about a time in my life when i came face-to-face with a change that challenged my every ideal, and shoved me out of my comfortable way of living.

i believe God can use people to change your life in that way. and i have been blessed so as to have encountered someone who completely shifted my worldview. i doubt he knows the effect he  had on my life but i’m so grateful. he left my life as quickly as he entered it but the amount of time that i knew him and the magnitude of the effect he had on me are not related to one another.

this young man was so free, so unabashedly himself, like no one i had ever known. he loved all the things about me that i was taught to be ashamed of and opened my eyes to loving without boundaries. i find myself daydreaming many times about what my life would’ve been like had i not met him,  the hope in love that i would not have, and it always brings me back to the same amazement at the effect we human beings can have on each other.

my life is so much fuller now that i try to live freely- expressing myself, and not holding back to make others comfortable. and i have him to thank for that.

moral of this vague and random story: be yourself– you could change a life.
