"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

The first step..

Sometimes why does it feel when 
you have every reason in the world
 to move on, you just can’t?
Why does it feel when
 every limb in your body is ready to soar ahead,
it won’t move a step forward?
And you just stand there 
waiting, doing nothing
 wondering what you are exactly waiting for?
A signal?..
Some one to give you a hand?...
Someone to lift you up?..
or maybe knock you down 
So that you can pick yourself up?
You don’t know and you will never know 
till you dare to take that step forward
…Till you dare to break all your inhibitions
 and step forward…
Till you realise that this is your life 
 it’s the only one that you have got, 
to give it your all…
Till you realise that the only one
 who can give it everything
 that it needs to survive, 
is YOU 
and no one else can take that place…
only you CAN  till you decide to take that first step…

    Lovely poem. Made me reflect on my life. Feel I have been in my comfort zone for too long. Time I move out and see how I fare in the outside world.
