I love seeing people when they’re in their zone. When a dancer is on the dance floor. When an actor is on stage. When a spoken word artists grabs a mic… It’s the space where that person LIVES and you see such a unique and extraordinary spark in their eyes. And it becomes even more fascinating when their passion is sooo much that it affects those around them. Where people at a large radius from them can FEEL their love. That undying and most genuine love for their craft. It brings even more warmth to my heart when the person teaches or tries to explain their craft. And when they try to synchronize their mind and heart with yours. Because you can just tell that the words they’re articulating just flow so effortlessly because they’re so well educated on their craft that they don’t even have to THINK of what they’re saying they just feel it. And they just express it. Words just flood out and you can tell they’re speaking from their heart not their mind. It’s just beautiful seeing someone get so taken away with something they love to do. And how love can be expressed not only for people or living things… But for an art. A love that YOU can CREATE for yourself. Waaaahhh! :]
Family, academics/career, health (mental&physical) ALWAYS come first. Take care of yourself. You may want to devote your time in this or that. But remember, to keep your priorities straight. The above listed are MINE. Your list could be completely different. If people judge you for straying away from the things at the “bottom” of your to do list, FCK IT. They don’t know you, they don’t know your life, they don’t know your struggles. People are SO MUCH MORE than what they bring to the table. So many of us cover up our pains with a smile for the benefit of others and to just get through another day. So give respect to one another, because you don’t know what someone could be going through. What I’m trying to say is that… don’t worry about others…worry about yourself first and positive energy will follow. Know and accept your limits. Work to extend them but don’t strain them. It’s like working out lol, it’s a gradual build up, but if you overwork yourself and break a leg that’ll prolong you from reaching your ultimate goals. Take things step by step and breathe.
I think every one needs that reminder.
Everyone drowns in their own ambition and gets tangled in trying to be perfect. The perfect student. The perfect daughter or son. The perfect worker. The perfect leader. The perfect whatever.
Keep moving forward, you’re doing alright.
Everything will be okay.
Do something that utilizes ALL of your strengths. Don’t let them go to waste. Do what you love and love the journey that will take you there.
