Some of us won’t grow old
Some of us will die too soon
They will not see another beautiful sunset
They won’t see their children grow
Their death is a tragedy
But an important lesson for us all
That life is short
Too short to hold grudges
Too short to be cruel
Too short to hate
Hold the ones you love closely tonight
For we truly don’t know what lies ahead
Show gratitude for your life
Show love to all
RIP Kobe Bryant, Gigi Bryant, & the 7 others who lost their lives today
You all will live on within your family & friends
You are loved
Your life matters
A continuation of your ancestors
A rebirth of a dying star
A diamond in the rough
In the vast infinite universe
How quickly we forget
The preciousness of life
Including our own
No matter how dark life can get.
All will end.
Impermanence surrounds each moment.
Everything will be okay.
Allow patience & faith to guide you.
Today I will release my need to know.
To control everything & everyone.
I will surrender to the path unknown.
I don’t know what lies ahead on my path.
I don’t know if I will ever get married or have kids.
I don’t know what happens after death.
I don’t know what is best for another.
I don’t know what is truly good or bad.
Views, likes, and followers
The new currency of self-worth.
How many followers does a person need to feel important?
How many likes do you need until you feel complete?
How many views till you’re content with your life?
Will you ever be satisfied?
Let go of the constant need for outside validation.
Let go of the obsession with likes, followers, and views.
Embrace your mission.
Embrace your purpose.
Your life is much more important the number of followers you have.
Quality over quantity.
Humanity builds their cellblock from within.
Years of fear, doubt, & worry.
Obsessed with control & power.
False sense of security.
Let’s plan a prison break.
Rip the shackles off tonight.
Let go of fear, worry, & doubt.
Embrace the path unknown.
Oh, how beautiful true freedom is!
One day worth more than a thousand in my cell.
