From the Tumblr Thoughts of 20-year-old Me…

Aren’t you in love with both the fragility and complexity of life? One minute you are here reveling and relishing in it and the next minute you can become a gift to death. I happen to believe that’s beautiful too because while your family mourns your death your life and contributions are also celebrated. Yet, with all that truth staring us in the face all the time we still waste our lives. We don’t watch enough sunsets, we don’t smile when we see happy children, we don’t feel the breeze on our skin, we don’t listen to the night, we don’t acknowledge the universal creator, we don’t write, we don’t travel, we don’t appreciate music and we don’t forgive. Why is that? Why blatantly disrespect life and love when we, completely unworthy beings, we’re given a free pass? I really don’t know that’s what makes life so complex. What I can tell you though is that whatever doesn’t make me happy is immediately removed from my life and replaced with what adds value and teaches lessons. I allow myself to feel and I am present. I appreciate and I love. I wholly respect the labyrinth of life and enjoy the odysseys knowing full well that around the corner could hold grave danger. I walk with faith.
