another year has passed… i am now 26.
it just seems the years are flying by without much control.
i recently finished my two year stint in the bushes of jamaica.
i am trying to stay sane and re-adapt back to the norms of the states,
though i feel i may never actually fit …
that’s been something which has always been a struggle,
trying to fit into life here.
it won’t be much longer though,
i’ll soon be off again,
off to make life and meaning somewhere else.
as i get older its the people in my life
that make the moments and the places.
that seems to be the one thing in my life that has remained constant,
the people in my life.
i cherish them indeed and feel most fortunate to have them in my life.
while catching up with some old friends,
the topic of destiny,
the universe’s plans,
all came into discussion.
more and more i am convinced
that the universe sends us messages and signs,
we must have an open-mind to see these things.
the farther we move from nature and ourselves,
we lose sight of the ability to communicate with the universe.
we must check ourselves regularly
to prevent these moments of darkness and cloudiness.
and when we feel we have reached our rock bottom,
realize there is something waiting out there,
it will get better.
we just have to stay positive,
remember without life we have nothing,
so as long as we are alive,
and capable of functioning,
we have so very much.
it’s the little things in life
and when we have that plus,
we are free to live life fully.
life is much too short to lose sight of what’s most valued and important.
it’s only natural we all have different views on this,
we are all human,
and each have very unique and different perspectives,
because of our experiences or backgrounds.
but with an open-mind,
we can reach so much farther and see so much more.
it’s truly beautiful
when we learn to accept people and situations
and move on,
trying to be the best we possibly can be,
letting our joy,
happiness and love shine on the world.
whether we want to believe it or not,
it makes a difference.
be a radiating lighthouse of inspiration and affect those around you.
