We did not lose ourselves.

We did not lose ourselves because in each moment we were creating ourselves. Decades of life… every moment, every decision a reflection of that moment. With hindsight, we seek to tell of a past with reference to the past previous to that. We held a vision of ourselves in a previous past, and so that… Continue reading We did not lose ourselves.

It’s not where we’re headed, it’s how we are. Happiness is elusive to many of us, because it’s not something we can buy and take out when we want it. It’s not something we can pile up and dole out whenever we’d…
