Taking the plunge

I think you know immediately. As soon as your eyes meet… Then everything that happens from then on just proves that you have been right in that first moment. When you suddenly realize that you were incomplete and now you are whole… – Luz

For over my 25 years of existence, one of the greatest things I have learned in life is that nothing is certain. There will always be a point when life will leave us clueless and we end up wondering what we really want. I dunno if you get to experience this feeling, wherein one moment you knew exactly what you want then out of the blue, you just suddenly changed your mind. Or let’s put a less complicated example; like when you are shopping for shoes, you knew when you saw that pair of shoes that it will go well with your new dress. But as you browse along the shoe stands and you get to see your whole options, you begin to doubt the beauty of those shoes you were eyeing just a moment ago.

Why is that?

Honestly, I have no fuckin’ idea.

Like when it comes to your profession. Let’s face it, especially when you are about to enter college, you have no idea what will become of you if you take this course. Most likely, your parents just urged you to take that course because it’s “in demand.” Or you just took it because you liked the sound of the “title” before your name. Some of us changed courses in the middle of the term because they realized it wasn’t for them. While, some of us are lucky enough because they are happy with the career path they are heading into. And really making a career out of it.

And more often than not, your two bestfriends whom you knew all your life, grew from being the best of friends to being one of the best couples who was inseparable and look great together, then suddenly, one or both of them called it off. You couldn’t fathom how on earth they hadn’t worked things out because they’re just perfect for each other. And as much as you try not be affected by it (because obviously you’re not part of the relationship), you coulnd’t help but be shocked to know that they have been miserable for such a long time.

Or when you started looking at this person differently. One moment, that person is a nobody, then after a few glance you wanted to know everything about that person. A lot of complications is at your way but somehow, you simply don’t care. Is it really possible to go from one team to the other and change the game entirely?! And what if you want to take that plunge but sooo damn scared to find out that that person isn’t on the other end to catch you. What would you do? Would you take the plunge anyway and devil may care? I doubt it.. Especially if a lot of people are holding you by the strings, yelling at you “This isn’t how it should work! Listen to what society dictates!” argh, screw them right?

I don’t know if you’re getting what I mean, but it feels so damn great to be able to express my thoughts with you.
