strings, the study of

5 02 2012

The irony of the tag on my blog is that we are anything but stringless: a myriad of strings are attached to us. They don’t direct our movements or actions, but they are good baselines, tugging on us, reminding us of life and the hope of what we have to attain.

So, loosen the ties to people holding you back, tighten the knots to those who love you enough to give a snap of correction, and remember your life is yours to live how you will, but hanging on to the right strands can only improve it.

There is only one way I care for. Do better, and grow better, and be better.
