I was in the car yesterday driving down the road, and heard a song i haven't heard in a long time. As I do with many things these days, when I hear a song I naturally try to apply it to my life (which usually revolves around D/s in some sort of thinking). Some of you probably know this already from some of the songs and lyrics I have previously posted. The song I heard was "I'll Be Over You" by Toto. the song itself does not apply here, but the first verse does:
Some people live their dreams
Some people Close their eyes
Some peoples destiny
When I heard this it immediately made me think of D/s and TTWD. I have read about, followed and talked with a lot of subs who have come out of the closet, so to speak. They realized that this is a part of them they couldn't deny any longer. This was an interest and a need for them and they had to investigate further. When they did, what they found was...well, themselves. They finally were seeing and figuring out who they really are and need to be. They realize that they aren't a freak for having these feelings and there is a reason behind it. They are finally seeing, many times after a lot of years, that this is their destiny. It's who they are and they can no longer fight it. They feel more free in finding this, accepting it, and embracing it, then maybe they have felt in their entire life.
I won't say this is exclusive to a submissive. I think there are Dominants that feel the same way and have the same revelations. I would put myself in that category. I always knew I was a bit more dominant n the bedroom. It wasn't until I came across some information and began reading and researching, that I really discovered more about myself. And now...well I'm a work in progress.
So the it all comes down to this. Will you live your dreams? Will you accept who you are and enjoy that in it's entirety? Or...Will you keep ignoring it, close your eyes, and let life pass you by?
