Sometimes life throws us a life-changing experience. It “wakes us up” from the routine that life can become. I once swore that I would never become complacent in life … yet, here I am.
Complacency is comfortable, it’s easy, it’s smart. It’s coasting because you can, to make it to the next day.

Before you know it, you’ve missed everything that’s good in the world.
I love the sunrise, the feeling of morning dew under my feet, and the morning breeze in my hair. I love the feeling of being lost, unknown whether there’s a comfortable tomorrow, of being alive and in the moment.
It’s time to go. Come along if you’d like, you’re invited.
