Words I Live By

An ongoing collection of writing and quotes about life.

This post is for all those feeling that all to familiar "Something is missing" feeling. Social media makes it very easy to create false perception and direct any narrative. Mostly without us realizing. We all have bad days. We all have our own struggles. Even when we don't post them. I want to use this space to inspire growth, change and positivity through sharing some of the experiences and stories I've come across on my journey. Maybe you'll laugh, maybe you'll cry. Most likely you'll unfollow. But, if you haven't: The goal is to inspire ANY positive change and growth within anyone reading these captions or feeling a "something is missing" feeling. Even if it is as simple as making someone smile. I'm not writing from a place of all knowing and understanding and my opinion constantly changes and evolves as I change and evolve. Much love.

"Don't you see? Its your eyes that are turning the sun into light. It's the nerve ends in your skin that are turning electric vibrations in the air into heat and temperature. It's your eardrums that are converting the vibrations in the air into sound. So in that way, everyday, you are creating the world." I see you've found the Alchemist. It was you all along.

Its like an old habit in an new environment. The pickaxe once hit rock. Now it hits water. But you keep swinging. The trajectory is circular but upwards. Emulating static within a constant change. You are on your way upwards. The same lessons being presented to you in different formats time and time again. The trick is how fast you notice the terrain changing. Put down the axe, take a breath, pick up a bucket and watch the water work with you. Here we are, human kind standing on the edge, for the first last time again.
