I used to think that we all wandered this world as individuals, alone and seeking different paths in our proverbial forest of life. My perspective seems to be broadening or at least shifting with age or knowledge, perhaps even experience has played it’s own role in my perceptual growth. I am certain of something previously uncomfortable to me when we meet others with the mind and eyes to see as I do, embrace them unconditionally. Despite their flaws, differences of opinion, or political standpoint I am not a single individual working toward my own goals. I am part of the collective human consciousness seeking the same thing. Happiness feel elusive and sometimes even theoretical at first glance, especially when there seems to be so many people living the exact opposite of what they want. What is the common factor in all of these people and perhaps even myself at times? Perhaps it’s perspective or circumstances that just seem as though we have no control over. Perhaps fate throws more at people who seek answers and solutions. Rather than seeking answers and solutions maybe we should rather decide what the answer or solution should be. Who are we to make such decisions without thought or consideration to others? What about the input from dear friends or family, surely they would have something to offer especially the people you know that are older or wiser than yourself. I cannot say that I am truly convinced by that thought process.

I have lived for only a couple decades and have been making decisions and answering questions without digging deeper than what I considered necessary since the turn of my second decade. I have lived something of an out of the ordinary life, I have moved quite a few times for reasons the few people would believe. I was there and I don’t always believe it. What I am attempting to do is use myself as a minor example without actually providing any supporting proof or real background. I do not expect you take the word of a stranger, but neither do I expect that you would discard my word without at least some consideration. We the people who are so used to hanging on every word of news anchors, politicians, and famous story tellers who publish their daydreams and fantasies for the masses; we who readily drink their loaded fruit punch at a party we aren’t sure we were actually invited to or perhaps just got the wrong directions to and stayed due to curiosity. All I am saying is that to the best of my ability I live by the rule to own my decisions and the reactions to situations I have no control over. Alternatively consider this, control is an illusion. The only thing you can truly control is how you react and respond to anything life throws at you.

We are creatures of passion so use that to your advantage. Fear not for mistakes will be made and things do not always go how you expect them to. So with that in mind find comfort in the idea that no matter what you decide to do, something will happen unless you do nothing. Then everything going on in your mind at this very moment remains impossible until you decide to create that reality for yourself. Now take a deep breath if you have made it through this post, sit back, look around and smile. Thank you for your time and consideration.
