The Best Trick I Know

Leave a comment

Day 23: What you’ve learned that school didn’t teach you. 

This prompt made me think of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite singers.

“… I guess the best trick is to see the magic, once you’ve seen the wires.”

– cory branan, lily

This line sums up almost everything I’ve learned so far in life.

The best trick is to still believe in love,  even after you know the dark side of it. It’s to believe in a healthy world, even knowing the awful things that exist. It’s to still attend church, even when you’ve seen all that goes on behind the scenes (church politics). It’s to know that time heals most wounds, if not all.

I’ve seen some wires, but I think that makes me less naive. It doesn’t mean I no longer believe in a sort of magic.

Now, off to make magic happen… aka, remain positive and do everything I can, knowing sure, everything could go wrong. “Ahhh, but what if it doesn’t?” (- unknown)
