What Matters Most
I would like to think that we are here for the journey and not the miles, not the membership, not for anything else but what we were designed to do in living our passions while employing ourselves in acquiring own souls.
At the end of the day, when we are all old and gray (and in my case, grayer), the legacies we leave behind are the memories and lessons we give to other people. It’s not about earning the stripes and gaining membership status, or other statuses, or about living by other’s definitions of what they believe is true or not true for us. Even though those are valuable to an extent that we all want to feel like we belong in our world, the catharsis of ourselves is within the experience and in making the memory, and the sweet acquisition of our souls on a daily basis. Sometimes these moments are huge but most likely, we are able to gain awareness and personal insight when life whispers our names and we draw close to those whispers rather than the earth shattering rock my world moments that come about sometimes.
