Story time: About a year ago I walked away from some pretty harsh toxicity in my life. But that's a story for another time.
I'm not much of a poetic type, but I enjoy a musing every so often. My view tonight got me thinking. Today I looked back momentarily and mused on the strange phenomenon of being around highly toxic people. But then I remembered that I left that behind me sometime ago. In front of me there was a path leading to where I wanted to go.
If theres anything to glean from this thought, its 2 things: (1) Pursue what you love to your fullest and at your own pace (2) In our pursuit of happiness, we should be mindful of those that share the same road. To disrupt one's own journey for personal gain is toxic to the other and poison to the self.
I choose to live a good life. One with harmony and peace, and one where I surround myself with good people. As I look to the road ahead, it makes me smile that I'm slowly getting back on to the beaten path to happiness. It's been quite the journey, and I've got my sights set on my goal. I'm not yet there, but I'll get there. "Step by step" as they say :) #kenjisama #writing #thoughts #oakland #philosophy #analogy #durian #road #happiness #health #healing #happy #love #gaman #perserverence
