"Sometimes the absence of reason is the great thing in the world."
Hmm, I thought. What an intriguing notion, especially to this logic-obsessed girl. But, much to my surprise, there was no attribution -- bad, bad journalist, Melissa! So I went on the hunt. Google turned up nothing. A search of my blog came up empty. I even asked my Facebook friends and couldn't find an answer.
I'm left with two possible conclusions: Either it's some obscure quote or I randomly made it up. Based on my journalistic endeavors, my money is on the latter. BBB But, my gosh, it raises a thought-provoking prospect. For so much of our lives, we're told what is right and what is wrong, that things exist in no shade but black or white. Things are simple, we're told. Or at least that's what we're taught to believe.
If it defines reason and everything we know to be true, it's best to stay away, right? And by away, I mean far, practically-on-the-other-side-of-the-galaxy away.
What if, and I know this might sound earth-shattering, we just let go? Maybe not forever since we don't want to go all hog wild and crazy, but at least for a little while. At least to know what that kind of freedom feels like.
When have you found yourself in a similar situation, friends? How did you handle it? Did you ever end up saying anything or did you just continue to maintain the status quo? And, in your view, is there ever a "perfect time"?
