I want to share what did the kite taught me about the relationship. When I was a child during elementary days, I love to create my own kite. The only feeling I knew about flying kite was fun and I never knew that one day I could relate and understand more about the relationship. There is a quote about a kite that said “the kite fly against the wind” and that is very well known to us. It means that you get success in every problem that you face and solved.
Let us substitute the kite with some of the ingredients of the good relationship. The kite body stands for relationship status, the string is the commitment and the wind is love that must not stop in order to keep on flying. And both of us are holding on the string.
This is my story and I only want to share this because you might find the valuable lesson. I hope that you can also use my experience for uplifting taught.
Trust and Faith
I wouldn’t try to make my own do it yourself kite if I knew that it wouldn’t fly. Even it is my first time, I had a faith that once I followed all the instructions It will be efficient and all my effort to build that kite will become successful.
The trust and faith in kite making are just like how I enter the relationship. I believed good things happen and if I just follow my heart and then success will be waiting. I have to trust and have faith that my good intention and vision is coming. Success comes after trials and your faith must not be shaken to reach your goal. You must have the ability to wait with the right attitude. I am waiting for the windy day to come.
The worst case is if time isn’t in favor of you then you might wait for too long. It is not about being happy, it is about having faith. You can find happiness from within anyway.
I step on many trials from the making and flying kite. I need to find the best materials to assemble. To launch the kite, a body must be balance and the wind must be enough. I had to run when the wind was weak just to maintain its position, but how long I’ll be running? When the kite was about to crush down then I had to extend the rope to recover up. Sometimes I needed assistance to push up the kite up. If you don’t know how to fly a kite from the start then you will never know what kind of relationship you are having. Learn to avoid mistake!
Trials and courtship are alike. You must understand first how to fly or how to make a good relationship with your partner. If the wind is love, then don’t fly kite during the storm because won’t make it if the body is weak. If the love is weak then you have to put more effort and care. The love must be enough and not too much because your partner might not accommodate that kind of love. It sounds unfair but it happens to me. Adjustment is very important to recover up and build up. You must always have a vision of success to fly and make it trough trials.
Maintaining the kite above or making the relationship stable
Steady relationship means enough wind, balance body and strong string. In other words enough love, balance relationship and strong commitment that you are holding on.
The relationship goes down without love. You know what is the hard part? Your commitments are still there; it is like the string of the kite that you keep holding on. I will not fly without the wind or without love; I dare not to make a relationship without love.
Letting go of the relationship is also letting go of the string. Commitment is something that you agreed upon from the first start. Commitment should grow while the relationship is going higher. When love is pure your commitment can do whatever it takes to make it. The love in the air will be nothing if the string of commitment is cut. Your relationship will be falling out of nowhere and without a string attached it will be hard to be found and recover back. Just move on when you can’t find a way to go back.
When you are already contented
Satisfy and happy. At the end of the day before the wind change and before I get tired of holding on the string. I felt that I had enough. We all know that there is always time to rest and give thanks. To returning back from where we came and rest. To return to our creator is kind of rest. I had flown a kite and watched them in love, faith and hope. I had experienced the relationship with love, faith, and hope but it isn’t perfect. But I am proud, satisfy and contented for accepting God’s will.
What did happen to my past relationship? And what is next to come? Everything starts with trials, you have to learn a lot from the start and accept whatever it is. I don’t want to build a relationship without a good foundation. The commitment will grow along the way. Commitment is the reason why people stay and stick with you even the love is weak or fading. Yes, commitment is more than a promise. Commitment is more than responsibility. Commitment is the home of unconditional love. When I say I love you, I mean it for a friend, my family, and my future wife. I don’t have any purpose without love and I will live to share my purpose in life.
