“Face to Face” by Kimia Rahgozar

As we stand face to face with someone or something, we begin to see the truth in it. The flaws, the hidden details, and then nuances. We begin to learn it in a way that’s not possible from a distance. In that knowledge we also learn something about ourselves.

We have so much more potential than what we actualize. And because we do not make the time to utilize all that we are capable of, we begin to accept mediocrity as the norm and anything beyond that as miraculous.

It’s not a miracle that we made this far on the exodus away from reality to the place of dreams; it’s a testament to our faith in ourselves and our courage to believe and see the world not as it is but as it could be.

It’s what we were meant to do. As dreamers in pursuit of our dreams we are becoming. We are becoming exactly what we could be, exactly what we should be. We are not meant to be helpless pawns in the game of life. We are meant to be designers of the game.

We have always had this strength, this power, this ability to reshape the world to our will. Hold fast to that conviction. We are slowly beginning to know and be known.

Violet Ambitions will bring us face to face.
