In case you’ve arrived late…
I will admit, two years ago, I would have been the last person you wanted advice from, for mindfullness, meditation, and balanced life.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make someone truly happy, to take a bad day and turn it into a great one, to turn tears into a smile, to maybe even save a life? Sometimes, it's the smallest of things that make the biggest impact. You don't need to be rich or famous to make a difference in someone's life. It seems so simple to do yet some complicate it so much. I often wonder when did money and material things become so much more important than feelings and emotions.
Let me tell you a story. I was first year university and I was seriously driven to excel at all my classes. I was avid about my first English class, because this was my specialization. Well the first day the professor walked in I knew I was in trouble.
As I reflect on life and COVID-19 a lot of things start to make sense. Survival the fittest really do exist. At this point of my life and age I realize there was no need to be fighting for approval, money, tittle and a place in society. It's all an illusion. What really matters is how you take whatever you have and turn it into something usable. Take the life that was giving to you and create your own masterpiece of art and shape. Some people may start over, some people may continue a great path, some may just differentiate themselves from the life they were given. It all comes down to your choice in life as you get older. There are many important factors that may lead to the type of life you choices you make, such as your belief system, money, and how you view yourself and life.
The Brink between infinity and conclusion grows from the pillar of understanding. Sweet melodies of temptation are always ever present to distract me from you. Secular entanglements, whose sole purpose is to drive me to non-conclusive dead ends. Often, I find you stupendously elusive of my mental grasp of comprehension. You become sifter and more cunning the more time elapses, and I have to dig deeper into my psyche for stability. You are almost synonymous with perfection in the sense that components of you can be reached but it's hard to fulfill you at 100%.
Each person born into the existence of time is created with a vast array of colors hidden within their soul. If you can imagine an artists color wheel. It goes from the whitest white to the deepest of black. In the middle there lies a bounty of colors. Icy Lemon to Sunburst Yellow. Periwinkle to Midnight Blue. Bubblegum Pink to Garnet Red and the colors go on and on.
So what to write about for my first story?
I absolutely HATE when my lips are super dry. You know the type of dry lips shrinks up the skin and leaves you with crusty and ashy lips? Yeah, I hate it so much. So... I’ve discovered (in my opinion) probably one of the best type of chapstick, and that chapstick is "Burt's Bees'. OMG! It works so well and it makes my lips look so hydrated and healthy. Now you may be thinking to yourself "Anthony, why on heaven's earth are you talking about your ashy lips?" If you're thinking that, I don't blame you one bit because honestly, I'd be thinking the same exact thing. Trust me, it'll all make sense as you keep reading. Let's keep going!
