The Last Time.

Posted in Uncategorized by christinaheaston on September 14, 2009

When was the last time you looked someone in the eyes and said exactly what you felt? No ulterior motives. No backpedaling. Just laying all your cards on the table. Sacrificing your pride for truth. When was the last time you opened up your life and had an honest moment of human-to-human-interaction?

When was the last time someone searched out your heart to the very bottom? Someone made you feel like you were genuinely worth getting to know?  And you did the same in return- seeking after the purest forms of their thoughts, feelings and ideas? For no reason other than you enjoyed their story. That with every broken and incomplete sentence, they handed you life.

When was the last time you made the effort to understand someone? You put aside your comfort and your ideals to better love someone?

When was the last time you had to do no more than simply think someone’s name, and you found yourself smiling?

When was the last time you did something for no reason other than you truly felt passionately about what you were doing? When was the last time you felt alive?

When was the last time you were guided by your heart and not your mind?

When was the last time you believed in God? And not just believed in God-but really believed in God-in His word. And by really believing every word, you lived your life accordingly. You REALLY lived like you believed. When was it?

When was the last time you followed the longings deep inside you? Whether it be a who or a what-when was the last time you got what you wanted simply because you wanted it enough to get it?

When was the last time you loved? Not even in a romantic way-but in an unrestrained way? A real and pure and selfless love? A love that doesn’t have a language.

When was the last time you liked who you were becoming?

    Far too dangerous, all that. Being that open and experiencing life with such reckless abandon would be far too intense.

    I’m just going to let subtlety, quiet thoughts and unexpressed feelings do their thing until I fade to nothing.
