do you feel your heart beat
beat
in the middle of a cold night,
with only the sound of your
breathing as you attempt to
exhale all your worries of an
unknown future, so vast that
it makes you wonder if your life
is days, months, years, an adventure
worth exploring or just
an abyss, an existence, as you
float around darkness?

do you hear the gust of winds
through the window cracks and
above the rooftops, a whistling
breeze with no intent to move
in any sort of direction, but the
direction where it’s meant to go.
when the sun’s rays warm your skin
there is nothing quite as pleasing as
the way the air blows against your
pores with a coolness.
is there a point to the breeze, then
the comforting way it rustles the leaves,
a reminder of nature’s beauty?

when you wonder where your
purpose lies, and you live in a
state of doubt on the reason for
existing, be the breeze.
take the hand of someone with sweat
covering there brow from all the pain
they have to endure and give them
a nice breeze, carry their burden
to take the load off.

bring out the magnificence of nature
and the beauty of life
with every stride towards your purpose.
follow the wind, go with the flow,
find a north star along the way to
know where to go
and surely your reason here will find you.

“And your doubt can become a good quality if you train it. It must become knowing, it must become criticism. Ask it, whenever it wants to spoil something for you, why something is ugly, demand proofs from it, test it, and you will find it perhaps bewildered and embarrassed; perhaps also protesting. But don’t give in, insist on arguments, and act in this way, attentive and persistent, every single time, and the day will come when, instead of being a destroyer, it will become one of your best workers—perhaps the most intelligent of all the ones that are building your life.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via alighthouseofwords)

❞It’s taken me time to overcome my own doubts and insecurities. It’s been my nature not to want to believe in my own success and that I don’t deserve my success. But that’s something I’ve fought to overcome.

Friends in the Desert..

amortizing:

Two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: “Today my best friend slapped me in the face.” They kept on walking, until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath…

“Once you decide on your occupation… you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret of success… and is the key to being regarded honorably.”
