How is it that something that could mean absolutely nothing to the person next to you, mean the world to you.
Is it a frame of mind that we live in, that allows us to see that everything has a particular beauty to it? Or is it simply an aspect of naïveté?
So many nights have been passing by where I have lost myself in the sea of the sunset, and the filling of the sunrise. Time is being filled with the people I have grown to appreciate more than words, and very little time is left for being quiet.
It’s a wonder when you do have a moment to sit back with a cup of coffee and think about the simple things that make you smile, make you remember why you got up in the morning.
Why you love where you are right now, today.
This is such a common theme around these parts, but I honestly think it’s very important to keep in mind the gratitude that got you to this day.
I have been writing a short story for my close friend, something that was such a simple treat for her. Little did I ever know; where it would take me. This story, as far from my own sense of writing, has opened the floodgates to other writers, editors, readers. It has been an amazing month of collaborating and communicating to a whole new range of people I never would have imagined. It makes me feel like this is exactly what I have always wanted to do…
Despite previous convoluted wishes that have swept through me like water—the non-profit organizations which is still a love, the teaching—still another dream for another day, the catering company—which is in the works. Call it confusion, or a loss of that feeling that you know will eventually find its way to you.
Regardless of the fact that this story is a side project, and not a lifestyle--it still feels right.
An email from someone I don’t even know, will probably never meet, has changed a perspective. Changed the way I am thinking about everything. I am not an easily swayed person, but because of words that meant probably nothing to them, brought the light to me; I’ve been swayed.
Why do the things that make you unhappy? Why not try to place yourself in exactly the place where you want to be? Where you know, in your heart of hearts—you deserve to be.
Life is too short for it to be wasted-hoping and wishing something comes your way. Why not put your feelers out there and grab what you are seeking.
Call it preaching, call it bullshit.
Call it whatever you want.
