"We are only here briefly, and while I'm here, I want to allow myself joy."

I hope you give the world all you got. I admire you; I’m sorry I let you down.

You make me want to be a better person because of who you are and the words you share with the world.

Time’s Master

Even in my last moments with you, I was too soon looking forward to future moments in which you would be back, illuminating my Pennsylvania sky. Once, when you first flew to my side in the clouds you feel so safe amongst, I believed time was on our side. Then in a flash we only had one night that was ours for the taking.

When will we be the masters’ of time, rather than at the hands of such a force; one that fools us into thinking “there will always be more time;” more moments to appreciate the ones we didn’t appreciate when we had our chance.

All that I know is my wandering mind lends itself to aimlessly think and obsess when I should be focused on the present moment that is all we even have.

"Find a passion and pursue it."

So it just hit me: my two biggest passions are helping others and the environment. Those two ideas are not really what just came to me, but the realization that where I am right now is where I’m supposed to be.
Often I question my decision to continue on in the mental health field. Lately I’ve been thinking more about the planet’s resources more than my own species. But right now, while in my new home for the next year, I realize that having two passions is just fine. Pursuing one does not mean I’m leaving the other behind. I’ll figure out ways to commit my life to my environmental passion just as I have for my passion for helping others.

One thing I never thought I would do in my life is build an Ikea piece of furniture. Thanks to this stud and his awesome sis, we put this dresser together like the professionals! Now I’m all moved into my apartment, and it’s time for some city living.

Finally finished painting my mom’s night stand. I call it, “A day in Tuscany”

Everything is changing, and tonight, I allowed myself to feel it all.

Despite being cut down at an alarming rate, the Amazon rainforest still covers 2.7 million square miles. Growing across nine different countries, it represents over half of the planet’s remaining rainforests, making it the largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest in the world. The forest is fed by the Amazon river, the largest river in the world by volume, which also has the biggest drainage basin on the planet.

How can humans look at such inherent beauty and brilliance and think it needs “developed”?
