Everytime the plane takes off or start its descent.
Everytime the bus speeds along a mountain trail, next to sheer cliffs
and takes a sudden turn round the bend.
Everytime the boat gets bumped by winds and waves unceasingly.
I just channel my inner Arya and say “Not Today..”
I like travelling, but I often stress myself out at the thought of sailing, flying.. It’s mighty scary when you know you can’t swim and you know you don’t have wings.
That’s why we had to have a talk, myself and I, and we somehow agreed: “If I never make it back, I would have asked for it – and that’d be fine by me! It would have been my choice, ON MY TERMS.”
I psyched myself up that things may not always be easy, and some days life will not at all go my way but that great things shall come with a new day… Hence, I remind myself to Reset. Take Heart. Kick Ass. Repeat. Who wants easy anyway… I want LIFE! I want an EPIC journey!
If I haven’t taken heart and gotten hold of my uber paranoid self, I would have missed a lot! I would have missed these:
The loveliest of times and the grandest of views!
Trust me kid, it pays to forget about Murphy’s Law! Just leap! Do those crazy, do those noble things.. It’s never too late to dream a new dream, to be brave and do something for the first time, to push yourself and be muttering those okay-here-goes-nothing lines! It may be skinned knees, or scraped ego, or even broken bones every now and then. And your feet will be dirty, your hair will get messy, but your eyes shall be sparkling! Time would give chase, but just keep running!
A world full of wonders is waiting..
And just like what is said in Peter Pan:
“Come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned.
Just think of happy things! And your heart will fly on wings!
Forever.. in Never, Neverland…”
Take my hand, let’s take the Road to Neverland!
