Above & beyond. Always remain true to your heart and to your soul.
People will always try to bring you down, will always try to change you and turn you into something you’re not, but if you go above and beyond that and always remain true to your heart and to your soul, there really is nothing stopping you.
There’s a big difference between active learning and constructive criticism vs. criticizing for the sake of being heard. It’s a lot easier for people to judge others on zero grounds and to pin off their unhappiness than it is to view the light of day. The tricky bit is knowing how to differentiate these things and these people. There is no step by step process to teach you that, and no amount of self help guide book will ever suffice to make that message clear. It’s a trial and error from here on out till the day you die.
But never let that stop you from living.
As you grow older, they say you grow another year wiser, which, for the most part is very true. I find it funny how everyone always dread this idea of aging because I don’t seem to get it. I like to embrace every moment of getting older because it’s another year where you get to be excited about all the new things you will discover, telltale your adventures and have the opportunity to deeply learn about the world and your surroundings. I feel like the fear of aging is simply a notion that comes when you realize you’ve missed out or regretted your life. I say this because I used to be afraid.
Like the Renaissance. Or the new age testament for those who believe in the higher power
My quarter life crisis has been by far the most revolutionary. A year that’s been filled with sudden realizations, epiphanies, disappointments, emotional roller coasters, a clearing of paths, lowered expectations, higher hopes, and a better understanding of human stupidity.
And as I progress into this 26th year, I am fully aware of the long road ahead that will require constant battles. Still flawed, still imperfect, and still learning, I have less of a need for justification so long as I continue to remain true to my ethos because ultimately, I let the results speak for itself.
Life is a journey worth living for better or for worse
I am extremely grateful for my life’s circumstances and with that in mind, I’d like to dedicate this piece to the broken souls and to those who feel they’ve lost their way as they progressively get older.
Because when the heart’s broken, broken from everyone who has walked all over it over the years, it’s important to take a moment to step back and see the bigger picture.
You realize that as much as you get lost in your head, that you drown yourself in meager issues, lost connections, that you recall the ghosts of the past, you still see the bigger picture.
You remind yourself that the world in reality is so wide. There is so still so much out there. And that all these negative instances are just a minor component that we complicate for whatever reason. In the expansion of your lifetime, they will be forgotten. They will have shaped you in the process, but they will get lost in time.
You recall that you only have one life to live, and the more you ponder over and over these thoughts, the more you waste time. And time is the essence and the enemy to create an existential mark in this vast world of a landscape.
So do not waste your time.
Instead, focus to put those pieces of your heart back in place every single day. Brick by brick, in hopes that one day, when it is complete again, the beauty of your soul will shine again, only this time, brighter than the sun above and beyond the clouds.
With that, I bid you good day Zurich. (&& farewell my friend. May your soul rest in peace.)
