Time And Success Are Relative, Love Is A Constant

I have always struggled with time.

When I was 15 years old and decided to start dancing, I thought I was already too old and would have a tough path ahead.

When I was in my early 20s, I thought I was falling behind in terms of accomplishments if compared to others around me.

Now in my 40s I struggle with the idea of being too old to still be attractive or not successful enough for my age.

What I have just described is a set of thoughts in my brain BUT the other set is:

1                     –  Time is a concept not a reality

Experience and quality, trumpets time.  Life is a continuous wave of opportunities for us to learn,  sculpt, and be.

2                     –  Success is a relative concept

Who is successful?  An individual with a high financial worth or someone who overcame his emotional limitations?

Success does not have to come with fireworks.  Accomplishments are personal and should matter to us more than to anybody else as only we know what took us to get from A to B.

3                     –  Love

Loving someone and being loved is not dependent on anything but a mysterious conversation that takes place between two people.  There is no age, race or gender requirement for sharing love.

This inner dialogue between the self, that is a by-product of our society, and the self that knows the mind and the heart are free in their essence is a constant.

The struggle makes me human and the achievement of inner balance between my two sides is loving, successful and always in the nick of time.
