A Story For Everyone Lost In Life – And Love

A man is walking down the street with a brisk pace, as if desperately chasing something down.

Indeed, he is. A woman, a woman he loves dearly.

The man strides down the street; tripping, sneezing, stumbling, wheezing, breaking, braking, taking note of every twist, turn, push, pull, breeze, tease, and change of pace.

Meanwhile, he meets a woman on the way. The two don’t have much time for each other, he’s got his worries and she’s got hers. The woman seems a bit absent-minded, as if she’s just wandering around with no direction. She stops and asks the man:

“How are you?”
He tells her:
“I am lost. How are you?”
She replies:
“I am lost.”
He replies:
“Sorry to hear that. Good luck.”
She replies:
“You, too.”

They part ways. Both of them remain in each other’s minds enough to make them think about each other, but not enough to completely distract them from their missions.

Still, the man is rushing. He’s going, and going, and never slowing, unless his more tender side is showing, until he meets up with another man.

This man is going the same way as the woman he just met, oddly enough. However, he does not share the same absent-minded stupor. He seems to be rushing towards something as well. Our first man stops and asks him:

“How are you?”
The second man tells him:
“I am lost. How are you?”
The first man replies:
“I am lost.”
The second man replies:
“Sorry to hear that. Good luck.”
The first man replies:
“You, too.”

They continue on their way, wondering if either of them had some tips for them on their search. Perhaps they could’ve helped each other, but that’s in the past now. There are more important things at hand for both of them.

The man is still following. Racing, until he meets yet another woman. This woman is different from the two people the man met so far. Instead of a face of anxiety, sadness, or worry, he’s met with a bright and wide smile. The woman stops him and asks him:

“How are you?”
The man tells her:
“I am lost. How are you?”
She replies:
“I am found.”

She places a hand on his cheek, and stares him deeply in the eyes. She gives him a soft kiss, and draws her head back slowly, with her loving smile and warm stare.

The man feels wonderful, he’s completely forgotten about the search he was on. For just a moment, it feels as if everything is right in the world.

However, as soon as he remembers his mission, he sobers up and tells the woman:

“I am sorry. I have to go. I’m on a mission.”
She is confused and saddened. She asks the man:
“Where are you going?”
He replies:
“To find something. Thank you, and good luck to you.”

He gives a tip of his hat before rushing off to chase down the woman once again. The girl he just met, follows him.

As she follows, she meets up with another man. The man stops her and asks her:

“How are you?”
The girl tells him:
“I am lost.”


The journey is more important than the destination. By conceding that you are lost in this world, you not only are forgetting, but disrespecting all the people who have found you. For all you know, someone that found you or that you found may very well be a prize much greater than that you once thought was the most important thing in the world.

If you stand atop a wall and look out, you will either not be able to see far enough to know what’s out there, or you will find yet another wall that you must climb in order to get the next view.

Life is an infinite journey with no end in sight until all of a sudden it’s over. Take some time to appreciate all the lives you come in contact with along the way.

You don’t always have to shoot for the stars; you just might even already have your sun. Even then, every star deserves to be appreciated.

Be the Galileo that glimpses upon the eternal sky of humanity, before all the stars die out, or worse, your own light fades.


 

Thanks for reading and appreciating my starlight, I love and appreciate yours.

Thanks again, and happy stargazing!
