Camping Adventures

August 11, 2017 – Journal

 

“And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.”  – Shanti

I always enjoy the adventure that is camping. To be fully absorbed in nature – away from all the chaos and noise. Just at peace.

I spent the last week at an outdoors camp for my school called Elevation. This course is vigorous as it is tranquil. We stay in a canyon for a week, away from our regular lives and disconnected from the world.

To be completely honest, this past week was kind of difficult to get through.

The Silent Art of Life

July 17, 2017 – Journal

◊◊◊

Life sometimes whispers a sweet promise in the ear of  certain victims who run for forever safety

They run instead of acting bravely 

Never wondering how long forever will be

And of all the strengths to listen to

The victim chooses to listen to the root of all failures

Hoping to be carefree

 

New barriers are then set up to eventually limit our potential

The very same ones that destroy our credential of life and the way we live it

Then the time comes to face the facts

The certain reality check we encounter, the certain ringing in our head

Slowly, but surely we give in

Realizing the one chance we had is lost

But instead of regretting and wishing

We should learn and accept the future

For the future of living is in the now and not the never

 

Life is a beautiful thing

Its beauty exceeds stars, the moon, and every galaxy

Life is an endless journey

Leaving humans and animals to leap in harmony

But only if we choose that path

Will we find forever tranquility

◊◊◊

This piece of writing is dedicated to our life as we know it and all of its risks and challenges. I encourage you to take hope from this as it is written for those times when we don’t feel so strong – when we don’t feel brave to continue on into our dreams. Listen to your heart and that passion will soon drive you into success.

Thanks so much for reading and caring.
