Hanabi by NΣΣT published on 2014/11/04 16:35:35 +0000 NΣΣT - Hanabi Blog: http://bit.ly/1Gl49DJ During a point in my life where I felt lost, she serendipitously appeared and helped me find my way. Pushing me forward and encouraging me to live life to the fullest. Reminding me to cultivate my passion with confidence while staying humble and honest. We lived in two completely different worlds, but for some reason she found a way to understand the clutter I was living in. Our lips never touched, but something tells me what we had was beyond a kiss. It was more like our souls matched...or something. I had never experienced anything like it. Was it love? Or was it...Hanabi? I think we can all agree that falling in love is one of the most beautiful experiences we can share with someone. It's that moment of vulnerability, that moment where we obliviously open our hearts to someone... that wishful, kinda feeling. As pretty as it may seem, love is actually quite scary isn't it? However somehow, we find the courage in our hearts to believe that "Maybe this person is right for me. Maybe this person is...the one." To me, Hanabi has a bitter-sweet taste to it. It reminds me of a time when I truly encountered love (or what I believed it to be), that's the sweet part. The bitterness resides in the realization that... it wasn't going to last, I think we both knew that. Hanabi makes me feel really good inside, but it also gives me that feeling you get right before you're about to cry. We experience these short lived moments and it's up to us whether to forget them, or to cherish them. A once desaturated life could be painted with magnificent colors in the hands of someone in love. So I encourage you to allow your past to push you forwards and use these memories to paint a meaningful future. In this case, Hanabi is one of those paintings that have made me the artist I am today. It's a bit nostalgic, but to share Hanabi with you again... I get butterflies thinking about it. It's one of those memories that really resonates within me and I hope it finds a place somewhere in your heart.
