I have had this inner struggle for a very long time and the more I think about it the more I realize that this is a struggle we all have to contend with for ourselves, in our own unique way. This fight is not singular to me, but is there for all humanity.
This purposeful striving to be our best: to improve, to grow, to learn, to progress, to not stagnate.
Then there is the joy of acceptance of what is: of who we are, of what we are capable of, of our circumstances.
Except that all of these things are subject to change, constantly. These are not fixed or permanent things. They are changing continually. So then, there is no right or wrong here. There is only the right path for me at any given moment. And the only way to know what that is to listen to the soft whisper of my heart and soul as they navigate the world; each moment anew.
Will there be blunders? Inevitably. Will there be pain? Undoubtedly. But I’ve experienced breathtaking majesty and beauty in this world in the most simple of moments. By just letting myself be, letting the world be, and trying to stay genuine and true. It requires no bells and whistles. This requires no money or fancy possessions. It requires no power or privilege besides that which comes from your most inner self.
Guess that answers that. Lol
I’ve decided, if I vote this presidential election, that I’m writing in Bernie’s name. I like Elizabeth too, but I’m not sure the US is ready for a female. We definitely didn’t seem ready for Obama being how we ricocheted so badly to Trump.
But hey….. I don’t claim to be an expert at anything besides me. And me says no fucking Biden and I’m also done with the big tent circus that is Trump, even if I don’t disagree with all of his idiocy.
