Quotes I Love, Reflections

Undetectable excuses

You strive for a month or so,

somehow that determination

vanishes,

you’re still unaware,

just putting up excuses

of this and that,

still unaware,

that you stopped fighting

for your goals,

that you stopped looking

at those dreams you stared at.

What happened and why?

Two days of rest

and you fell right back

into the trap of mindless

distractions,

millions of distractions

and you lose the track of your

dreams,

lethargy and laziness

are too cozy,

not using your will

is automatic.

Then comes the stage

of becoming aware,

of knowing

the distractions and excuses,

but you wait for the will power

to be back,

you wait for the determination

to arrive.

You’re still unaware

waiting for the will

is an excuse in itself!

At last, the knowing

that you don’t need to wait,

just start again.

It comes to making a decision again,

to just start.

No matter how many times

you get distracted or lazy

or find infinite excuses,

just decide

and start again.

You can start again anytime.

Come, come, whoever you are.

Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.

It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair.

Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.

Come, yet again , come, come.

~ Rumi
