Departure / 離開

她說:「我老是看著別人離開,有一天我也要出走。」

我說:「我不想當留在原地的人,所以我必須要離開。」

我們都想著有朝能飛出去的可能,不過你搶先了我一步,雖然我們強烈渴望可以離開家,到了能夠遠去的前夕,發現離開更需要的是勇氣。

離開不是逃避,而是要面對自己,然後讓那些阻撓你的心浮氣躁隨風飄去。

She said, “I am always the one that sees others off. One day it will be my turn to go away.”

I said, “I don’t want to stay where I am all the time. That’s why I have to leave.”

We’d dreamed of flying away, but you made it earlier than me. Much as we long for the opportunity to leave, we realize right before departure that courage is indispensable in our moving on.

Going away is not a form of escape. Instead, it’s a journey on which you have to come face to face with yourself. Let the wind and rain wash away your impetuosity, and you’ll eventually see what you are after.

It takes even more courage to stay, to be the one guarding tradition and value, to be the one welcoming those returning after a long journey~

Carol: I think that's what I've been doing at work, but lately I have had the feeling that I need to learn something new, or I won't have enough to give or as you put it, to guard my value, to always be the one that believes in goodness and beauty.

Shann: Thanks. I took a quick glimpse at your blog, and I'd like to tell you that I have a child in Malawi as well through World Vision!
