As this year draws to a close, I, have become conflicted. I've have begun to occupy the streets of my mind looking for anything that will inspire change for this next year. The desires of the past have returned and are encouraging me to continue to exploit them: drawing, loving, dancing, spirit living, meditation, and prayer. Of late I have turned from the contemporary metrics used to measure happiness and success and have turned toward actually existing happily, whilst doing what I love.
As I reach the final year of university, and the last week and a half of my semester abroad in Madrid, I look back with a squinted eye, and look forward with a wide eye. I've learned from my mistakes and are using the lessons that have caused me more tears than I am willing to admit for my future.
I encourage you to continue living. Remove the razor from your spirit's wrist and throw it to the ground. Pick up your heart and run with it. Allow your soul to break free from the steel jaw traps that have broken it in the past, and frolic through the corridors of opportunity.
Live in light,
love your life.
