There's something about the infinity symbol that draws me right in. Such a simple twist of an oval, a sideways "8". It's almost uninteresting to look at. No intricate design, no beautiful pattern of twists and turns that makes you think, "how did they come up with that?", no real depth. Just an oval pinched in at the center.


Maybe it's the meaning behind the symbol that gets me every time. To know that the figure means hope, faith, love, grace, dreams, pain, heartache, anything you want it to mean. Anything you're feeling at that time is held inside of this effortless twist. One day it could represent the infinite love you're feeling at the moment, and the next day it's a mere reminder to keep pushing through no matter just how much you're struggling.

It's a new beginning or a continuation of the path you're currently on. The love you'll always feel or the love you used to feel. It's that thing inside you, the burning passion you have, the flame that will never go out. Maybe I'm just looking too far into it. Maybe it is simply just an ordinary shape that got bent in translation and that's all. But every time I see the symbol I think of something else. At the end of the day, some things remain the same a midst all the craziness and chaos. And life will always go on.
