Behind this serious face is a silly, funny, playful side of me; really there is.
And I love that!
As I grow older, my essence remains the same: poetry heals me, art redeems me, literature transforms me; and meditation, well, it's the key that binds it all together.
Allows me to write and express myself; I need that in life.
Gives me the aspiration to be creative; I can stare at a canvas or a blank sheet of paper and create anything I want it to be.
Gets me lost in a hardcover filled with black and white pages. Sometimes, reading is where I find peace.
When I find myself mentally exhausted with everyday life, I sit alone for a minute or two and I think, I pray, I meditate. It quiets my busy mind.
You may think it's crazy, but making a habit of freeing your days from every day noise brings patience and peace. We all have that inner peace, find yours.
