We played against each other like puppets, swearing you got pull. When the only pull you got is the wool over your eyes. Getting knowledge in jail like a blessing in disguise. Look in the skies for God, what you see besides the smog. Is broken dreams flying away on the wings of the obscene. Thoughts that people put in the air. Places where you could get murdered over a glare, but everything is fair. It's a paradox we call reality. So keeping it real will make you a casualty of abnormal normality. Killers Born Naturally like, Micky and Mallory.
“He says, ‘it will be all right’.⠀
It is not the saying of an oracle or a prophet. They are words you might speak to a child. I listen to his breath, warm upon the night air, and somehow I am comforted. He does not mean it does not hurt. He does not mean we are not frightened. Only that: we are here. This is what it means to swim in the tide, to walk the earth and feel it touch your feet. This is what it means to be alive.”
-Circe (her last words in the brilliant book by Madeline Miller)⠀
*At the bottom is a question for YOU! Scroll all the way down, I want to hear from you!* ⠀
Sometimes you live a moment in time that even while its happening, you are completely aware you’ll never forget. These first few weeks in L.A. have been just that, for me, for us. Frightening, hard, but in the same breath I feel really alive. In a raw way, a way that has made me open my eyes wider and re-imagine all it means to build an intentional life. Big changes often give me this important (and let’s be honest, difficult!) perspective that ends up reshaping how I think moving forward, and I’m pretty darn grateful for this one. ⠀
What life events or experiences bring you to this place? I’d love to hear your experiences and connect with you! The most beautiful thing about social media is it helps us all remember that no matter what we are going through we are not alone! Comment below or DM me🙏🏼⠀
