All you need is a single instant and you can see all the beauty in the universe. That instant is when your eyes meet with someone you have loved for a long time. It might seem insignificant, but that is how most beautiful things in life are, the smallest things that mean the entire world to you. A split second of pure connection between two lovers, a split second of heaven on Earth, a split second of the most intense joy you’ll ever experience. It’s better than any drug can make you feel. When the windows to your soul meet with the one that holds the key to your heart is a moment of divinity. Bon Iver’s Calgary is that exact moment in music form, a peek into the entire beauty of the universe in less than five minutes of audible poetry.
It’s like being in 8th grade again. Suddenly, you’re older. You have some sort of air of superiority.
I’d love to say “So much has changed..” here, but it hasn’t. In reality, I’m the thing that’s changed the most. From my habits to my looks, from my friends to how I feel…a lot has changed and changed again. I don’t regret most of it, but it’s healthy to regret some. I don’t mind messing up sometimes. If I hadn’t, I would’ve never been the person I am today. And overall, I guess I’m beginning to find myself within the shell of a person everyone else has been trying to mold.
Even though 3 years seems short, I’ve matured more than I can see. I’ve learned what love is like, through multiple sources. I’ve learned how to break a heart and how to get my heart broken. I’ve learned how to hate myself and how to get over it. I’ve learned how to find my voice and how to manage people. I’ve learned how to make friends, lose friends, and keep friends. I’ve also learned what a real friend is. I still have so much to learn…including how to move on. The frightening part is, many never learn how to…I hope I’m not one of them.
My perspectives have probably changed the most out of everything. Every day has forced me to change my outlook of the world in some way. It’s a scary thought..so many days spent wishing them over, and now I’m so far ahead that I’ve lost track. I can’t wait for the day I find myself never wishing them over.
It doesn’t matter how far the distance between me and you. Just know that our love will connect us together someday.We are like strings, no matter how far the strings are between us, in the end, we will pull that string together and tie a knot that last forever. Till that day, my strings will left to be tied with you and only you.
