Instrincic Needs

What happened to having intrinsic needs like curiosity, passion, purpose and autonomy? These intersections should always be questions on the table. These needs are embedded into our networks and are evidently evolutionary.

Ambivalence

One thing I’ve learned is to let ambivalence take up space if it comes. Often times, ambivalence provides more clarity as time passes. You will start to see more nuanced views of things you otherwise think only came in black and white. Ambivalence can usually be the step right before more awareness, where if given the time to look at all sides of a complex matter, true clarity may take shape.

Kindred Spirits

Far and few between and almost disappearing are dialogues on passions, values, ideologies, dreams, feelings - a space where kindred spirits come together and feel most human.

Writing

To write is to stop internalizing your feelings and thoughts. Etched on paper is your soul being fed, your mind enriched, your living heart - taking a form of its own. Then simply let it go.

Sentient Beings

We’re all fucking conscious and sentient beings, this I truly believe. So just fucking feel. Just fucking think. Fall into that deep connection. So deep you might not get out.

Stranger

With each fleeting day, he became more like a passing stranger on the streets she walked. The moments shared become movie scenes they had seen and nothing more.

Peace

Your sense of peace is not for the taking. Protect it at all cost.

Loving & Losing

Loving someone then losing them is just the dark-side of the life-affirming ability to love deeply, feel deeply and have deep connections. And that, is the beauty of what we all live for.

Dimmed Hope

Sitting here lost in aimless thoughts. Lost in the abyss of endless white walls. What’s this feeling - Feeling of hollow and dimmed hope.

Checking In

How do we take time to balance the emotions that come with all the atrocities that are happening in the world - looming war, racial injustice, climate crisis, the pandemic? Even if you’re not directly affected, let’s not forget to take the time to check in on each other & have compassion.

Handling Rejection

How you handle rejection is a true testament to your will power. As cliche as it might sound, it’s holds 100% truth. It really takes a strong shift in your mentality and the more hits you take, you will only eventually get stronger and rise from it.

Health

Why is it that we need to get older to realize that striving for personal success to the detriment of our own health isn’t the answer? “Without your health, you simply have nothing.”

Climate

Stop tuning out the cries of climatologists and scientists when they tell us the grave danger we and future generations are in unless we as a species reverse the impact we have made to the environment and biodiversity within the next 10 years.
