The process of time is so misleading, how can time rush by and at the same time feel static.
In terms of pole it feels like an age, I can't remember a life before, what did I do!? What did I think about if my mind wasn't filled with endless combos, pole wear, and unicorns? Yet when people ask me how long I've been doing pole my first reflex of an answer is to say two years, and then I remember time has definitely moved on since it was in fact two years 😄
It is the same in terms of life - normal real life where a lot of the boring non pole things happen.
Time can move so slowly, especially when you're in a bad situation.
It feels like that is the way things will always be, that the situation you're in is just your way of life now, that it will never cease to exist.
A little bit like when you're freezing cold in the rain and you can't, at that moment, possibly imagine what it would be like to be sunny again. The sun doesn't live here anymore, it's moved away to somewhere that is fundamentally not here.
But even at that same moment in that crappy situation, time is moving forward, it is never static or still, at every single moment the future is being created. And life will change slowly, but when you put together those mosaics of memory in your mind it will just seem like a heartbeat.
I'm a sunset and sunrise chaser (when I'm not too sleepy for the latter)
They are both a beginning and an ending simultaneously, one can't exist without the promise of the other.
Which means it doesn't matter what you have or have not achieved during the day, you can just enjoy the beauty. It is only one day fragmented into thousands of tiny moments that will soon fade from vividity. Take from it only what gives you life 'keep what is worth keeping, and then with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.' Begin again.
To a lovely friend - you're an absolute rockstar, role model and incredible human being. You got this 💖
I love chasing sunsets in my divine @indipolewear 💙
