3 Fights We All Know Too Well

“Like a small boat, on the ocean. Sending big waves into motion."

There comes a time when we become emotionally overwhelmed by life’s challenges. When we are just not sure of what we are doing. We become unable to identify what is pushing us towards or away from this specific something/someone at hand. And so we become all over the place. We get confused because it feels a lot like being on a roller coaster; we are having a blast and next thing we know we are about to faint. Experiencing a chaotic range of feelings can consume our sense of balance as we go through pleasure then pain, clarity then confusion, confidence then doubt. And that is normal. It is what makes us human at the end of the day. We all need a moment of silence, a piece of mind, a place to rest for a little whole from time to time. We all crave that intimate connection we have with ourselves and the Universe where we can say: it’s going to be okay, I’m wounded, it hurts, it burns, but I see you, and I’m here.

Becoming Better People

Facing our demons, coming to terms with our dark side, embracing our flaws, owing our imperfections, questioning our ego, leaving our comfort zone, taking on what scars us, what challenges us are our most difficult battles. To become a better person one must bear honest, raw critical reflection of oneself, one’s behavior, one’s attitudes and beliefs. To become a better person, one must be compassionate about the world, emphatic with others and about their experiences, concerned about the well-being of this planet. To become a better person means to come in terms with our mistakes in the past, to forget ourselves and others just as equally. To become better means to continuously grow and aspire to be better than who we were yesterday.

Finding Passion and Purpose

For some of us, knowing what we want to be doing for the rest of our lives flows naturally and at an early age. But, for most of us perhaps, it is hard work. It is starting things that we don’t finish. It’s settling for less. It’s feeling unhappy and unfulfilled. It’s a lot of things except for the one thing that it should really be. Sometimes we know what we want to do by doing what we don’t want to do first. And that isn’t as bad as it sounds because it allows us to explore our options and develop our pool of knowledge.

Creating a Safe Haven

We all want to be around people who love us for who we are and truly give a shit about our well-being, those who will be there when we need them, the ones we can count on, the ones we trust. We all search for honesty and integrity in people. Finding these people is tough and so tricky although it should just be one of the easiest things ever. We all want to be seen and most importantly, chosen. We crave joy. More of like the advanced dimension of happiness. We do not want any kind of happiness. Not the one that comes and goes, not the one that is reliant, not the one that is easily taken away. We want the joy that is worthy of hardships, pain, or suffering. We want that place to come to at the end of the day where we are loved, appreciated and taken care of. It’s ironic that the world is so big yet it feels so small.

“I might only have one match. But I can make an explosion.
I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me..
I'll play my Fight Song!”

    I have to admit, Fight Song used to be one of my favorite empowerment anthems. Yet after hearing it repeatedly during the Democratic Convention (and indeed, throughout Hillary Clinton's campaign), I've grown to associate it with less than positive things, namely politics and the instability in the U.S. as well as around the world.

      Hey Alison! I couldn't agree any better with you! I wanted to bring that empowerment of the song and shy it away from the politics and all that because I think it's about us individually and as a collective group of human beings just trying to figure it out..
