OOTD: Worlds Collide

Sometimes, we try to nourish possibilities in our heads based not on actuality but on our desires. These struggle to take root in arid grounds of make-believe yet eventually, it will find nothing to sustain it.

You were a fantasy I carried close to my heart. I held you close enough so my heart fluttered in its attempt to bridge the distance, but not too close you’d occupy a permanent place.

Little did I know that things would gain momentum until no amount of deflection can keep our worlds from colliding.

I should have known that when two worlds collide, one cannot soften the impact of the collision with logical strategies. When worlds collide, it shakes you to the core and exposes the very things you’d like to keep safe:

Your heart.

The essence of your being.

The sanity of your soul.

In the aftermath, only the firmest of resolve can help you sort through the wreck and recover what’s yours. It may take days, weeks, years, but persevere until your world is whole again.

Today, I woke up with a single thought in mind – to let go.

Yes, I allowed myself to be so happy, I dreamed about you for days on end! But now, I’m wide awake. I’m ready to live again. I’m whole.

I say goodbye to pages and pages of what-could-have-beens and watch them flutter farther into the distance. My feet are itching to dance. Perhaps I’ll indulge them.

Skipping as I walk, I say to me, “Welcome back, self! Welcome!”

This entry is my contribution to the #FIDMstyleProject –  a new social media program that brings together bloggers FIDM Students, and fashion fans. The theme was supposed to be winter fashion but since I live in a tropical country, such a concept is non-existent. :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think below. :)

    So dreamy and heavenly words that my heart went a-flutter. I think I see butterflies now and look at the world a lot more colorful thanks to you! Wow! I can also appreciate the flowers on our garden now – never really paid any attention to them before. …and now more sensible to what the people around me thinks.


  11. Sumi · January 9, 2013

    This post is so beautiful, Mich! At first I was thinking that maybe you’re just using lyrics of some song. But after reading through the whole post, I felt this is really you. In fact, I worried a bit that maybe something bad happened. But thank goodness, di ka naman single ngayon! :D Anyway, love the photos that went with your words. So uplifting and refreshing! I especially love your top and your bag~ :3
