To my homie! Not the best I’ve written but what I’ve felt overpowers expression this time!
Life isn’t a destination, it’s more a matter of journey. And while you’re at it, you’re bound to meet people irrespective of you wanting to or not. So when you vision it as a journey, there’s many turns and bumps all the while, heck sometimes the road you’re traveling isn’t even done finishing and you find yourself turning back another way. But eventually it gets built. But during that journey you’d always have people guiding you, sometimes they even come along to lead you all the way and some travel with you.
In simpler terms, throughout your life you’ll meet various people, diverse people. Each having some quality. But some will just connect with you. Know them. Find them. Everything gets better if you have them in your life. These are the people that stick around. That bother. The ones who keep you sane yet insane. Those who ease you out of your messed, irksome days. The people who feel like home. And if you’re fortunate enough to find them, express it. Even tho they understand the silences, displaying gratefulness never does anyone any wrong. It’s like an added advantage. Because these people, the ones who care, they deserve it. These people who willingly participate in your life, these are the kind of people who are the 2am people in those clichéd posts. It’s simple as that, they make your good times better and hard times easier. They’ll be there when you want to cry your eyes out not just comforting, but helping you get thru it and move on. They’ll be there when you want to laugh and celebrate not just to have fun but because they’re genuinely happy in your happiness. They will be there. Period. Nothing ostentatious. And honestly, it’s fine if you are satisfied alone, but with them, it feels easier. It’s liberating. And to put it broadly, it’s beautiful.
This one’s especially for the heart that wants to explore. The ones who know the feel of wanderlust. For the travelers. Also, if you ever get the chance, spend your day trying to get more of life rather than more of money. Thanks for reading!
How do you want to live your life?
If I’m ever asked this question, I’d say I want to explore it. The most I can. I want it to be full of experiences. In this single life that I’ve got, I want to be doing a lot of things. Things that don’t just include making a career, building my own house or getting a pricey car. Things like feeling the cool sand under my feet while walking on a beach with a sky full of stars. Watching the orange hues of a sunrise from the hood of my jeep on a cliff. I want to dive into a sea and out of a plane thousands of feet from the ground. I want to know the stories of random strangers and then think ‘turns out they really aren’t a stranger’. I want to ride a bike across the world. I want to go to concerts and feel my heart thumping to the bass. I want to write in the middle of the roads that have barely had feet walk over it. I want to find home in not buildings, but feelings, dreams, people and thoughts. I want to bond with people. Make friends. Real ones. Feel a love that inspires. Feel the passion in the eyes that hold dreams and stories. So what I want to do in life? I want to feel things. I want to live them. I want to be scared and yet at the same time, thrilled. I want to take risks. I want to help those I can. I want to learn. I don’t just want my bank account to grow, I want my growth. I want to work hard for my dreams. I want life to be raw and natural, not artificial. I want to struggle and then later smile at seeing it pay off. I want to be happy. I want to make mistakes and learn. I want to call dad and let him know of my crazy experiences and see him smiling and advising me. At least once in my life I want to see the world from my eyes. I want to take chances and never look back. I want to be able to tell stories.
I want to feel beautiful till the day I die and that is never going to be thru my appearance. I want to die knowing my skin has worn off but I still have my experiences and memories as beautiful as ever!
Life’s weird sometimes. At times you won’t know what’s happening. You won’t be able to understand what has happened. And you won’t be able to assume what’s coming up next. But those are times you need to wait. When you need to believe. To have faith. You have to assure yourself that whatever happens, in the end it’ll be of nothing but good. There’s always two kinds of perspectives, either the glass is half empty or it’s half full. And you know what, if there’s no source of happiness present for you, CREATE one. Find your own happiness when you feel clogged up. There’s no one coming for your rescue. You have to deal with things on your own. And for that to happen, you have to relax to get your head around the situation. Understanding is important. There can be changes you thought were impossible. But things could simplify. Realize that sometimes, time is all that’s needed. Remember that the power within you is greater than any circumstance outside of you. Give time to let things resolve. Trust yourself that you could get thru it. There’s nothing as impossible. Just that not everything is in your hands. And I’ve been told – Do what’s in your control and leave the rest. Sometimes, a lot good can come out of the worst of situations. Give time to yourself to introspect. For everything to happen, it takes the right amount of time and the right environment. So if needed, be ready to give the time if you need the change. It will happen if it should. And meanwhile just relish in all you’ve got and be grateful. Trust me, sometimes we forget we have a great deal to be thankful for. Account for whatever you’ve got and give time to whatever you want. Don’t feel exhausted just yet. Keep hope alive. It has the ability to fill all your voids. All life asks of you is to stay put, stay motivated, and never give up. Realize
