For the curious, questioning, and wandering soul

There is nothing else like it

Take a moment, and be amazed by something.

Stop, be present, and realize where you are right now.

Pause, and reflect upon how fascinating it is that millions upon millions of instances led up to who you are at. this. moment.

Ponder about how each and every day, the people you pass by, the people you make eye contact with, the people you speak to, you laugh with, you cry with, you negotiate with, you get angry with, you make love with, you grow old with… those people, ALL those people have a story, have an immense history, have a childhood, have a past. And their stories are etched within the wrinkles on their faces, imbedded in their voices, stitched in their clothing… it’s who they are. Their stories make them who they are.

Breathe, breathe in this life, the wonder that surrounds you, breathe in the fact that you get to see the sun rise, that you get to fall in love, that you get to climb mountains, that you get to witness life as it comes into this world, that you get to feel pure happiness.

Please, I beg of you, please take notice, please be present, please realize that you, all the complexity that you are, all that you get to be, do, achieve, in this life… well it is absolutely magnificent. There is nothing else like it.
