Consider all the factions that pull at you everyday. Think about all of the people in your life that are constantly shaping and reshaping your identity. Everyday you are torn between where you are and where you want to be. You are conflicted by the person you thought you would grow to become and the person who you have become. And you must spend every day bleeding your soul to pay your bills while trying your best to make time for your real passion. Think about all the unnatural positions in which your mind, body, and soul are contorted into on a daily basis. Now ask yourself what, if anything, is keeping you from falling apart. Once you’ve done this I want you to find that thing and worship it, kiss it on the cheek, say thank you. Life is so hard but it could be a lot worse. Smile.
