Twenty-nine years I’ve been wandering, learning, searching the ins and outs of myself, trying to discover something about me that will change the world. And surely enough, on my 29th rotation around the sun the cosmos sends me inspiration to write again. What have I found? Simple, Inspiration. The Almighty created the universe and man in its likeness, therefor, we are the creators of our own universe.
If you believe that you are destined for greatness, you are in fact, just that. You are a product of your own thoughts and inner workings. Good and bad. “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.” (Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist,1988) Believe it! Visualize it happening. Dream of it constantly, and work towards it every chance you have!
Creative minds are the way of the future, it is your self-belief and duty in ingenuity that will pave the way for generations to come. The world is filled with darkness, evil, pain, and suffering, it is an inevitable truth none can hide from. But in you, shines a light so bright that fills all the darkness of any planet or moon near by. Do you understand? You are the sun, and your life is your universe. You will choose what surrounds you and what gravitates towards you and create your very own solar system.
You can have two families, your blood family, and chosen family. Treat them as one in the same, they’re all you got besides yourself. Welcome others with open arms, but be mindful of the company you keep. If you play with fire, you will get burned. Be honest to yourself, learn everything you can about yourself, and treat your body well. Wake up grateful everyday and be excited that you are alive! Live fully in the present, and count your blessings when you feel down. This life is only lived once, so try not to live an ounce of it any other way of how you want it.
In the words of David Orr, “The planet does not need more ‘successful’ people. But does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every shape and form. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these needs have little to do with the success as our culture has defined it.” (Earth In Mind,1994)
As I sit alone in my room reflecting on my twenty-ninth year of living, I aim to inspire you. I aim to fill your hearts with joy and ignite a positive influence that will uplift your spirits and the life you live. I am grateful to all the connections and relationships I have made over the years, and I am in your debt to your influence in my life. Be kind to one another and live well. Infinite love and utmost respect.
