It’s important that you know that I was not always this way. I am not a naturally hopeful, or happy, or content person. By design, I’m wired to run at the first sign of adversity, to dream big and live small, and to scoff at the very notion that life could be anything other than burdensome survival. Around 2011, I had an experienced an awakening, which would serve as the catalyst for transforming my cynical mentality.
Presently, life for me is an ongoing effort to remain in a state of present awareness, to the point that every thought and action is voluntary, by choice. I believe that from this state of awareness, invention is made possible, so that we recognize (and discard) any emotion or feeling which restrains us from freely creating a life that we absolutely, positively, unquestionably love.
It’s not an easy path to follow sometimes. Then again, no great historical transformation has come without adversity. Bring it on.
