You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

you need to be the one to bring about change, if you want to see change.

That’s how it works

Dear you,

This year, you are re-learning coding, wake-boarding, and finally taking up yoga and keeping to it.

You will not and should not just cope with life. You should live it.

The things that really really matter, love, job fulfillment, joy, love of life, confidence, skill sets.  These things takes time. The journey is long, messy, uncomfortable. And you need to ask for help when you need to

You are not entitled to get anything, you are not a victim. You will not use alcohol to numb your senses, you will not go on tinder to get instant gratification, you will not post another picture to filter your emptiness inside. You will work on your self-awareness on these things, built deep relationship, and be hard-working.

Nothing is for free, nothing is going to drop on your lap. You need to focus on what you want, and work toward it. Leave the friend that wouldn’t be there in a pinch, i will stop eating the shit that makes me feel bad, i will choose my thoughts.

KEEP YOUR FIRE LIT!

Deep breaths, in and out.

Grateful for my healthy body, strong legs – it has brought me thus far in life, good head on my shoulders – helped me navigate through life.

Thanks for the beautiful tress around me, so green so lushful. Helps me feel calm and reminds me the beauty of the world.

Thank you for opportunities to change the world, people’s life.

Thank you for people who care and love me.
