“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”- Ernest Hemingway
I’m fairly certain I mean it when I say that I would rather feel everything than nothing at all. Even though feeling everything, the full magnitude and strength of every event and scenario, is incredibly scary and tough sometimes.
These days I’m learning how to reevaluate what matters and what holds meaning. I’m also learning a lot about uncertainty and the unknown.
“The unknown carries with it a mirror of all our deepest, most inexpressible wishes. The unknown is the fatal proposition that a face seen across the room will always hold out to the known.” – Alain de Botton, On Love.
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”- Guatama Buddha
Some days are just more memorable than others.
Practicing being present and living in the moment helps me remember.
“We are a landscape of all we have seen.” – Isamu Naguchi
