C’est la vie

by Emma

It is strange how life changes and moves fluidly into places you never expected. How often do you recognise friends, now as strangers? People who were once so close, become mere aquaintences. People who were once strangers become so much more.

We strive towards our destination and swim with the current, yearning for our imagined shore. Sometimes we have to leave people behind. Time and comprehension cement this. They are not always swimming in the same sea, or they simply get stuck on a sand bank.

The water is warm at times, freezing in places. Sometimes we get to swim with dolphins. Other times we become surrounded by sharks. Like the sea, life is unpredictable. We cannot control this. We need to ensure that our entourage are predictable. This is within our control.

We simply have to believe that it is simply part of the journey. The ones who are meant to be by our side will swim just as strongly.

C’est la vie.

The mind of a deep thinker…or complete rubbish…it is all down to interpretation and perception…
