This was one weekend of April when my friend, out of the blue, sent a message to say, "Are you free? Let's go to the beach!". Being my rest day and all, I was half glued to the bed in between wanting to stay and wanting to make my weekend mean something. So off we go~
We set off late with no clear plan other than a list of food to buy and a rough direction to the place. haha. I find it's easy to be brave when you have someone else to share your confusion.
Besides the most uncommon of paths often lead to more interesting experiences. You miss out on the usual sights that everyone has already seen but you get to see the other side of it, one only few get to see. Misadventures, getting lost, or finding yourself on a boat ride in the dead of night. With stars above, a laughing friend beside you holding your hand tight because she's just as scared and amazed as you, wind on our faces, and moonlight reflections on the deep dark waters below you.
Who's to say if maybe we have just seen the other side of perfect.

I feel the strings slowly slipping away. It's now so easy to pack my bags and just go. This feeling, like a talisman guiding the way through the darkness in my heart. It's not easy. Unguarded moments leave me longing for the open cage. This illusion of belonging will one day matter very little. I belong deeply to myself. No true rest and comfort will come to one who doesn't know how to be happy on her own. Soon. I won't long for the bindings anymore. Soon. I will truly be free.
