Energy

We all cultivate and put out energy into the world. However, all energies aren't the same. Some bring about synergy while others are an encumbrance, so we should first be mindful of our own output and then take special note of the output of those around us. Especially those that are comprised of our inner circle. There are simply some people whose energy diminishes you; we know these people; they even suck away your own energy and this obviously isn't fruitful to achieving whatever it is you're striving towards.

It won't be more real when you complete school, when you get that job, when you get into or out of that relationship. When you offload the burden of financial or health problems. Truth is, these hindering factors - these embarrassing, tedious, tiring and annoying obstacles - are the crux of what it is to be human. To live imperfectly yet still matter. It's just life. Accept how real that is....

About the Writings

The humble ramblings of an artist. Our lives are stories and stories matter, and so they should be shared for all our benefit. This is why I write these. They are thoughts and ideas stemming from our shared lives. In hopes of us learning and growing together.
