I’m feeling positive & I’m going to share it

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.

Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that.

Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

– H. Thurman 

Just let those words sink in.

I don’t normally write posts like this, but when something overwhelms you, you need to share it. The world does need more people who are alive, truly alive. You may not know where you will end up, you might not even know how you’re going to get there, but life works like that. It’s about figuring out what makes you smile and what makes you feel that rush. Do you know that rush? It’s the one you feel when something is exciting, when you are working towards something you believe in or something that you find completely amazing. Personal, professional, physical, doesn’t matter.

Think about it right now, what makes you come alive?

We’re Not Perfect

We’re mere strings hanging from the ceiling,

cracked crystals spreading out the light,

in multi colored pieces that only shine at night.

We’re fragments of dust, as heavy as paper.

We’re flying around, but it’s wind that propels us.

Twisting in the air with no clear vision.

Hearing different beats but smiling in unison.

We’re grains of sand filtering through the cracks,

pieces of yesterday sprinkled with hope,

forgotten in a corner and forever lost.

We’re waves that come crashing ashore,

the waves that move more than just water along.

We crash and we fall, we refresh it all.

We are colored feathers moving to a beat,

surrounded by fragments of what we could be.

We are drops of the universe, surrounded by heat,

running through the stream, aimless down the street.

We’re not perfect, we’re far from it.
