Daily Prompt: Carry

via Daily Prompt: Carry

To carry the weight of the world on your shoulders everyday is a struggle, the strain it brings. The stress it yields. The responsibility always present. This is the life of a parent. A life brought to being through love. That life now solely relies upon you and your partner. Food, clothes, shelter… it’s upto you. The daunting task ahead, a mixture of joy and nerves. Can we really do this? Are we ready? The moments most joyous, also bring the burden of great responsiblity. Never will more stress be experienced. Never will such pride be realised. Never will such strong emotions be felt. To be a parent, is to carry the weight of the world on your sholders.

Wind – How we relate

The constant changing of direction, the fury of nature truly exhibited through the characteristics of wind. Human spirit is akin to the wind in many ways. In an instant, we allow ourselves to go from moments of peace and tranquility to celebration and euphoria. We constantly speed up and slow down in search of the never ending pursuit of happiness which life brings. Happiness is not a constant, but rather brief moments, comparable to the brief moments in nature, where the sun and wind caress your skin in perfect harmony, to create what can be a peaceful break in the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
