Embedded deep within a rhythm,
Seeing only the next step,
Missing the cycle’s conclusion.

Reflection can bring awareness,
Acceptance might give strength,
Intention will enable change.


It’s so easy to run through life,
Thinking that everything you earn,
Is purely due to your own efforts.

Recognizing the people around you,
The love and support that they give,
Can help ensure that they stay around.

When warranted, be humble in acceptance,
when not, stand firm in loving defiance.


The path may be revealed,
The work has been realized,

Growth was powerfully difficult,
Pain is the ultimate decider,

Vigor takes us to our limits,
Dedication protects us from loss,

The edge is to be approached,
Not crossed for respect of the abyss.


We all need space to grow,

Searching for it can be painful,

Our work is to be more present,

Feeling more can be weird and strange,

Stay in this world with love and respect.


Moving away from feeling,

Disconnecting from our moments,

We feel ourselves move,

Will you be inspired,

Will you come back,

To our shared moment,

Be yourself, be strong,

Show your world inspiration.

Standing alone

There is a time to stand apart,

Individual growth is part of your process,

Find strength in solitude,

You have to find you own path.

Finding peace

It’s as simple and difficult as ignoring the white box in the photo.

‘Happiness as a state of mind’ is something that I think a lot of people struggle with as a concept and it’s very difficult to express clearly. When thinking about happiness, I immediately think about how far things have advanced and changed over the past 2000 years.

On the whole and as a global society, we are tremendously better off. We have worked to eliminate disease, reduce hunger, alleviate poverty and elevate positive values like love and tolerance while shaming hate. Nothing is ever perfect and expecting things to be so will leave you in a mental state of disorder and chaos.

Learning how to accept the challenges of the day as sensations that happen as a part of a greater experience, rather than focusing in on them entirely, can help you achieve a centered mind.

Mental habits that remind you of the people or things that you love while you face a particular challenge can help you balance out the importance of that challenge in regards to the rest of your life. These habits are built by consciously reminding yourself of the good things in your life as you go.

The challenges will make themselves known. Just love yourself enough to remember that your life is greater than any one challenge and even if it’s just me, there is someone who loves you.

What you deserve

You’re trapped in a cycle, spinning around with feelings and people you don’t know,

What you’re doing doesn’t make you love yourself, and you deserve a better experience,

There are all sorts to have in this life, have that which reinforces your self worth,

If you’re feeling worse doing the same things, do things differently,

Do it for love and do it with grace, or you’ll never change the cycle.

Recognize that you’re the cycle and you’ll leave when you’re ready.


New territories are always available,

The path to them can be strange,

They will feel uncomfortable at first,

That discomfort will pass,

If it was not a challenge,

It would not be growth.
