The Dress Rehearsal
What if life was just one big dress rehearsal,
where we were able to have do-overs...
Would you want to do things all over again? Or would you be content with them staying the same?
It means that we could practice repeatedly for the main event.
There wouldn't be any concerns with falling over, saying the wrong lines, or standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fear wouldn't even factor. Sure, you might have some butterflies in your tummy while waiting in the wings to go on stage. But all burdens, anxiety and fear would disintegrate into dust with the knowing you have a lifetime to practice.
Each character would be analysed to the finest detail, so we knew what to expect from them, we would understand what to accept and not, so the path we travel on remained easy.
Again, the question remains - would you want this ease in life or not?
I mean who really wants to know what to expect. The hard days are there to point out what the good days are. Lessons are given so we grow into understanding, we fall over, so we can stand up stronger, and the memories are made to give us a story to tell.
If life was just a show that we were practicing for, our hearts would never flutter with love, our tears would never fall with sorrow. Our minds would be bored within the first few years of the main event taking place. This brings me to my point. We learn now to be thankful for every single card we get dealt from the deck. If we don’t try, we will never know. If we run away, the next time, we win the race. We revel in sorrow, to party in the blissful.
Meet strangers with an open heart, allow each character to define their role on the journey of your relationship path. Watch each sunrise and sunset, knowing that every day is a brand-new day.
