When man learns to walk, it gives him a new sense of confidence to roam and explore freely. Perhaps it is a sense of freedom.
Throughout our life journey, we choose our own path and pace. God gives man the freedom to walk but he leaves man to choose his own directions. Fate is nothing but a compass. We walk our own destiny.
Because we are never meant to be stationary – does it mean that we have a higher chance of getting lost? Or rather, if we are trees, rooted ourselves in the middle of a jungle, does it mean that we have found our spot and can never be lost.
At times, when I am given the opportunity to choose (at the cross-roads), I often felt lost and uncertain. Cos’ I am always making mental sum on which is the best direction to go. Perhaps, there is no such thing like a "best direction"?
I love travelling on a straight road. I dun mind the straight road being bumpy, rocky, sharp bended curves or even full of potholes.. At least, I know I have only one way ahead. Be it day or night, rain or shine, there is only one direction that I need to focus. The only thing I need to decide is my own pace.. it doesn’t matter if it is fast or slow.. I will get there anyway..
You see, there can never be too wrong to pick a wrong pace… However, sometimes we have to pay a heavy toll if we picked a wrong path. That is when we got confused and lost. We all know that there are some routes in life that don’t allow a U-turn. And there are cross-roads that share similar fate but contrasting destiny.
What do we do when we are lost? Most of us would stop walking, leave that confusing place and try to find a clearer road. And what is a clearer road? A road without cars? Or a road with lots of signs? What if we can’t find that clearer road and ended up being "more lost"? Then again, how can one be "more lost" when he is lost?
When you are lost, you wish to see someone familar on the same road as you. Cos’ you know that familar face is going to lead you out of the lost state of mind. The "best direction" mentality doesn’t apply here anymore. You just want to get out.
I am not lost… In fact, I have a clear path ahead of me.. However, I have just took a left turn and found myself standing in an interchange of fate and destiny. Sitting near the information booth, I saw a line of people feeling lost…praying for a sign. I wish I can lead them but I know whichever direction I point is going to affect a chain of events and destiny.
Feeling really heavy and helpless, perhaps, it is best that I get back to my own road.
Like what my creative director has said, it is good to fly with a string attached sometimes, at least you can control your high and lows. A kite without a string can never take flight. A kite with a broken string will eventually falls.
