This LIfe...

Its the greatest tragedy ever written.  Its the ride of a lifetime its a series of highs and lows. Its an emotional wave higher than any tsunami, its bigger than any Katrina.  Its the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.  Its the mediocrity of it all.

We stumble we fall, we brush ourselves off and get up again.  We smile in the face of tragedy and join hands with our brothers to get strong again.  Never alone should this journey be fought, band of brothers and sisters unite.  We are stronger in numbers than we are on our own.

Its our solitary journey that matters and as we fill our heads with the nonsense that flows, its our discretion that leads us to the path of our own ultimate wisdom.  Don't let the silly masses throw ideas your way, seek your truth and spend time alone.  It is the greatest gift you will ever know.

We google stuff for lack of experience, but its the experience that google really wants.  It wants to be human and understand patterns but it never will, not now, not ever.  The human condition is one far greater than bits, bytes, ads or trending ideas.  Don't let your spark die, fight the hard fight. Rage into that dying light.  Find your light and make the dark caverns of this world brighter.  If you lift one up along the way, you make the road more bearable to be traveled.

We are not guaranteed the good life.  We wake up daily and remind ourselves why we are here.  Not your job, not the pursuit of money, not to find the meaning of life, but rather to embrace this wondrous place for all that is.  Its the sunsets, the sunrises, the fresh air on your face, the cool breeze on a hot summer day, its the laughter, the sand, the trees, the birds, nature, the traffic, the simplicity of what it could be.  Mark Manson said it the best, "And because we’re all spreading our attention so thin, many of us are losing the all-important life skill of focus." 

Your life is right in front of you.  Not the bigger house, not the bigger paycheck, Not the faster car, not the 1000 likes.  Focus on what you have right now.  Keep the greatness inside you and don't be swayed by my writings, nor anyone else's for that matter for your individuality is whats needed.  Your perspective is your own and it is brilliant, magnificent and complete.  Give thanks for your life at this moment and grace this life with your focus'd presence.  I ask you now, What do YOU want?

Until next time...
