I want to live the dreams that have been in the back of my mind for many years. I feel an odd calmness, unlike anything that I’ve had in many years. I would almost describe as this: I feel like a feather with a sense of passion and direction, but without anything to get in the way allowing it to float freely and travel where it wants, unbound by anything. I think about my dreams of visiting huge cities but also roaming through open nature filled fields without a single worry in life and only a sense of wonder and curiosity. I want to walk around barefoot and smell the earth and feel the dirt between my toes. A fresh breath of crisp air and sense of being. I want to teach others, read, learn, people watch, and experience. I want to live simply and decluttered and clean. I want to show off my fashion and beauty and creativity. I want to inspire others to do good and be all that they can be. I want to listen to music and enjoy the fruits and talent of others and see the special side to them that makes them unique. I want to run and I want to walk. I want to see the joys of life and experience all there is….
LIFE. It is so beautiful.
