“Dying is easy,it’s living thats hard.” -unknown
I find this statement to be quite true at times.
Not just for me but for everyone on this earth.
Anyone can get on a soapbox with a bullhorn.
Except few people can command attention with it,despite their cries of indignation.
Through circumstance I have been given that authority,
likewise ,“With great power comes great responsibility,” as said by Stan Lee.
Through unexpected,and unplanned circumstances I’ve found myself primed for a soapbox.However small the audience,each person matters.The question begging an answer is,now that I’m here, what do I have to say?
While driving along to a concert with my family a thought occurred to me;Attempting to describe any singular great experience is akin to trying to fit music and the entirety of feelings it encompasses into a box.
Besides such an act seeming impossible, at times so has my recovery.
However, I have some good news it’s not impossible.My hopes besides a full recovery are to demonstrate what’s been given to me to others similarly in need of their own recipe to bring them through their troubles.No one person can fulfill this because its something we have to find on our own however other people, like the Cheshire Cat(Alice in Wonderland),can certainly help point the way.
Which direction will you choose? Well, that depends on which cat you encounter.
The best kind are positive,follow through with what they say,and are able to properly demonstrate love.
It is in love that I recommend blocking out the negative things of this world,
especially when faced with an important mission.
It is not enough to simply be alive, but to also actively live your life and share that lust for life with others.Because were all in this boat together.
Overall it has been these types of people that have built a human chain of sorts that has brought me through.
Humanity is like a chain link fence,were all together as one, if any link be weak,strengthen it.
How do you help the weak link? Just as you would a metal fence,build it back up.
Be it with words,inspiration,a hug,some physical help,or whatever the method it’s important to do it.
***When I was living in New York City I saw that negativity could spread throughout people almost like a cancer and physically exhaust you.
Now that I have been able to look back into it like a snow globe after returning from the brink of death,my hope is to be an inspiration,not only thru actions but in,interactions as well.
Each one of us is a walking,living story, in order to let other people read your book, you have to show them.
Nonetheless I am determined that where I’m headed is nowhere near where I came from.
