I have been thinking a lot about life lately. About what makes me happy. What motivates me. What I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. At the end of the day, so much of life is unknown. We don't know the answer to so many questions.
Pushing myself to journal, write down my gratitudes and intentions, mediate. In the past I have phases where I say that I need to start focusing on myself, making sure that I am being the best person that I can, taking care of my health and body, and fighting to make my dreams and aspirations come true. Those phases come and go.
But here I am, in the summer of 2017, in yet another phase of inward focus. Don't ask where it came from, but I have found strong passion and desire to ensure that I am happy and healthy. Part of this is looking forward at my life. What do I what to do with the time that I am on this Earth? What goals do I have for myself? What impacts and marks do I hope to make on the people around me?
I don't have the answers to all of these questions, in fact, I may not be able to fully answer every single one of them. But I do know, that since I have renewed this focus, I have been the happiest I have been in a long time. Life has its ups and downs. My instinct is to do everything in my power to control what is happening. But that isn't how life works. So instead, I am just going to let it be.
organic. flow. happy. easy.
