Feeling stuck? This might be the answer…

Tending to resemble a simplistic, routine order of operations, our days unfortunately begin with something we have done, consist of something we have done, and end with something we have done. We claim to “live life to the fullest,” but truly, how extraordinary are our lives? As many of you ponder, I deny saying that we don’t absolutely love and cherish our existence and the blessing within it, but I am claiming that a point of comfortability, when reached, acts synonymous with not truly living our lives to the maximum capability that we acutely identify ourselves of doing. It’s when we journey outside the comfort zone and assume risk, that we experience a new definition of the “fullest” we desire. It begins with trying something new, adventuring somewhere different, or simply speaking to someone unfamiliar. Step your foot into the doorway of unconventionality; see where the hallway of different takes you.

What’s Your Message?

“My life is my message.” – Gandhi

Gandhi, a blissful, endearing man, crafted an array of beautiful quotes, but none move me like this simple, five-word sentence. The clarity of his message for Indian independence glistened through every form of nonviolent civil disobedience and act of peace.

The cultivators of time, like Gandhi and others who’ve generated an extravagant impact, each visioned to change something in the world– their message. Whatever it be, they did so through the actions, endeavors, and hard-fought victories and losses. Striving to expand my means and push myself to achieve some kind of contribution to this planet, I question, what is it I want to do? What is it I want to change?

What’s my message?

What’s your’s?

The Great Escape

Life get’s complicated; life get’s overwhelming; life get’s unbearable. With your back against the wall, the beauty of choice proves to be a blessing—you have the choice to temporarily walk away and escape from the havoc. Some use exercise, some use socialization, some use sex… the list goes on. My escape isn’t unique, but it gives me relief—all that matters.

Life gets enduring; I’m constantly on the grind. Personally, nothing brings the sheer satisfaction compared to hearing music and writing a blog entry, personal reflection, or a diagnosis of my emotions of the day. It works for me; no one will ever understand the joy writing while listening to music gives me.

I encourage you to find your own escape. What grants you the serenity to relax and level out emotions? What relaxes you after a day of continuous anxiety?

Find your escape. Indulge in it… You deserve it.
