Growing old with You

f31f537d65be61f03460f8ac5d1b96e0

And maybe in forty-something years, we’ll be living in a house across the sea.

 

You’ll be 62, and I’ll be 63.

 

I’ll be the one painting your fingernails because by then you’ll be having arthritis in your hands even if I’ll be having arthritis in my hands too.

 

We’ll be sitting in front of the ocean for a little while when all we can do is hold hands and how holding hands can still count as making love.

 

We’ll be holding hands whenever one of us remembers our sad youth. We’ll be holding hands whenever one of us remembers a regret, a mistake and none of it will really matter because by then we’d still have each other. We’ll be holding hands until the end of our golden days as we love each other so gently to teach our grandchildren how love is a kind of soft chaos that dances for all eternity.

 

We’ll be holding hands while soft dancing our way towards nothingness until it’s finally time for one of us to let go knowing how love was always meant to be.

You are going to make it someday

tumblr_piga3iiO8O1tsw5nl_540

have faith 
& breathe a little.

 

it will all be okay.

 

where you want to be
may seem so far away.

 

still, 
be thankful 
for who you are today.

 

walk.
walk.
walk.

 

success is a journey
& what matters is the progress
& the steps you’ve taken this day.

 

just be mindful
& do not dwell on the troubles of yesterday.

 

have faith
& breathe a little.

 

it will all be okay.

 

sometimes,
it gets so dark 
you begin to lose your way.

 

sometimes,
it gets so stressful
you should allow yourself to smile & play.

 

dance.
dance.
dance.

 

through the chaos of existence
& remember that despite your storms 
& struggles, you are always on your way.

 

may beauty 
be the reason that you 
push through no matter what anyone will say.

 

take in art.
express art.

 

be art.
you have always been beautiful in your own way.

 

survival 
is a form of growing.

 

just be you each & every day.

Wishing upon The Stars

Since I was a child, I saw magic at the moon,
the planets and the stars
I remember closing my eyes really hard 
as I wished for anything that was possible 
and I wished for the feeling of being an alien 
to disappear once I open my eyes and I am home.

 

I remember thinking the better I visualized
this wish to no longer feel consumed by my loneliness,
the better the chance of this wish coming true and I am home.

 

I remember imagining what it’d be like to live
in a future where I felt the people playing soft music
and my family is dancing as they laugh and drink and I am home.

 

I remember feeling sad that my wishes never came true
but I still found magic in believing in all my wishes anyway 
because I know, soon I will love, smile and vanish and I am home.

Just keep on Growing

Start over

If you’re in search of a fulfilling life, 
remember, “Just keep on growing,”

 

Growing requires balance
& your ability to listen to your body.

 

When you need to rest, 
then rest.

 

Eat well.
Be hydrated enough.
Get extra hours of sleep if need be.

 

Don’t over exhaust yourself to success.

 

Self-endangerment isn’t efficient
& burning out isn’t the same thing as shining.

 

If you’re in search of a fulfilling life,
remember, “Just keep on growing,”

 

Growing requires resilience
& your capacity to harness good stress.

 

When purpose exists in your pain,
so does passion.

 

Follow your heart.
Embrace your own uniqueness.
Be enthusiastic with your work as you can be.

 

Do your best in your work and make it feel like play.

 

Self-actualization is the result 
of your unconditional love towards your own special process.

 

Prosperity 
is the garden of your mind that’s focused on its own progress.

Calm is a Superpower

your peace
is your peace.

 

may it be the most sacred
thing that you own.

 

learn to develop it
in yourself.

 

learn to create it to the point
where it celebrates your way of living
in harmony with yourself.

 

for the calmer you become,
the more flowing you will be.

 

your peace
is your peace.

 

have a good cry.

 

make your room dark.

 

have a moment of silence
as you lay your head down your pillow.

 

breathe
and be uninterruptedly alone.

 

sometimes
the chaos becomes too much for your senses.

 

find strength in your solitude.

 

you deserve to feel aligned like all the stars
in the universe are beginning to shine within you.
