Random Turquoise bird

Just a random outfit for a day around Madrid.

I came across this "text" I incredibly related to and thought I'd share it over here and see who else finds it amazingly easy to relate to.

"if you're anything like me, there's a lot of things you find yourself missing.

maybe you miss past friends, past homes, past loves, or past moments. maybe it's your childhood neighbor or a city you visited once or that night you stood under the streetlamp with snow falling all around you. well, whatever it is, all that missing we're doing means we're ignoring what's right in front of us--means we're passing over new people and places and memories worthy of missing someday.

'missing' itself is a funny word, though, isn't it? as an adjective, it can mean lost or gone or misplaced. it can mean absent, lacking, wanting... or, as a verb, 'miss' can mean failing to catch, mishandling, screwing up. it can mean failing to attend, letting slip, evading. sometimes, too, it means to pine for, to ache for, to long for.

well, whatever you're missing--whether it's because it's lost or absent, or because you screwed up, or because someone else screwed up, or because you're simply aching for it--try to remember that in missing it, you're also missing something else. you're missing an opportunity for a new, different sort of chance, a different adventure... maybe even a better one."
