That One Word.

My favorite words are those that sound like what they mean. Maybe it’s just me, but PASSION has always been my favorite one. I’m strange…. I can’t pinpoint my favorite movie or song, but I know my favorite shape (circle) and word (now you know).

It’s just so strong. It’s so simple, but it means so much; and to everyone, it’s something a little different. It’s the thing we are willing to spend time on, yet it doesn’t feel like the clock is winding down. Rather, we are gaining as we lose time. It’s the air in our lungs, the blood in our veins, and the thoughts that we actually want to stick around in our minds. People say they are on “the pursuit of happiness” and they are “pursuing their passion,” but it’s always with you. Use it, never lose it. 

 

and, on a completely separate, yet very serious note- RIP MAYA ANGELOU. Thank you for being such an incredible inspiration to those who were blessed enough to have met you and those who could only know you through your work. Your legacy will interminably shine for generations to come & the world is in desperate need of more humans like you. Caged birds fly freely because of you.
