Vita Esperienza- Experience Life... a biography of sorts
Life so far in this little world for me seems pretty unsubstantial... pretty "normal" to me because this is how I grew up. I have experienced much more in my 25 years of life then some do in the decades before they are escorted into the afterlife by the heavenly white light. I am here I guess to share some of those experiences with you, my loyal readers. (I hope I eventually have tons... but I am comfortable with the knowledge of there being no one as of yet.)
I don't want this to be preachy or bore you with the details of my upbringing, just going to pass along a general background of sorts to help you understand me as a whole: I am weird, funny, goofy, artistic in everything I do, I like to talk, but I love to listen and I am never happy unless I am helping someone even when it's more hurtful to me then helpful. I am hardly ever surprised by things people say and do anymore because life has become a series of insanity, but I am always surprised by the things in life supplied by nature. It feels necessary to hold a childlike wonder for something as simple as a sunset in order to understand how your life holds meaning.
Life So Far
When I was little, the wonder and overwhelming sense of things being so much more then they were, kept me wide-eyed and talking a mile a minute for days on end. I was never short on questions I wanted to ask and things I wanted to know. Everyone should hold on to that feeling, that thirst for knowledge. If it is something you realize you have lost; maybe it is time you find again. If you want to know the meaning of life you need but look inside yourself and ask, "What else can I experience today?", and run with it.
Don't you think perhaps it is time you get out and do that thing you have always wanted to do? To jump out of that airplane and feel the wind on your face, to run that race you have worked yourself towards your whole life, to read that book you sat aside so many years ago that it gathered dust. Take a walk down the path you neglected out of fear of what you don't know in order to see what you are missing. Instead of wondering what others are thinking about you, find what you think about yourself and never let it go.
Thinking Things Through
I once wrote a poem based on a single line that came to me in the wee hours of the morning after a night of no sleep. The sun had started to rise and Fall was in the air. The morning was cold and there was a light layer of frost on the ground outside. It was cold enough to set a shiver in your core but so still you couldn't help but be in awe. The sun was cresting behind a grouping of buildings and trees and the sky was a gorgeous shade of purple that no crayon box holds. And I was thinking to myself "What if someone were to think about all the bad things in life knowing that tomorrow didn't exist ?" That seems a rather grim topic I know, but it also brings things into perspective. What IF you were to sit and think about all the bad things in life... and then tried to find a way to change those things? It seems like a huge task at hand but if you start small then you are on the way to changing things in your life for the better and you will really be able to find what life means to you. I leave you now with a quote from one of my favorite singers. "In truth the forest hears each sound, each blade of grass as it lies down. The world requires no audience, no witnesses... no witnesses." ~ I Must Belong Somewhere, Bright Eyes
Find what makes you happy, what makes you who you are and run with it... run like hell........
