August ramblings

As I aimlessly flew down Coconut on my bicycle, the harsh wind against my face triggered these thoughts in my mind that usually appears during my most vulnerable times. What if I'm just not good enough? What if I don't succeed? What if all this time, money and effort I put in my career is wasted? All of these what-if's overwhelmed my mind to the point where I was suffocating with doubt and worry. Then in the midst of all the negativity, I got distracted at how blue the sky was. I'm aware this may seem cheesy but I started noticing the blue reflecting on the buildings and the dappled patterns casting down from the trees. I was so humbly inspired. Riding down the streets of this beautiful scenery made me feel so alive.

It was then I realized that I shouldn't worry so damn much. I shouldn't be afraid to commit to something that makes me feel so alive. Observing life and creating art makes me happy. And I feel like these moments are what life is all about. Seizing the things that make you feel alive and never letting go. Don't let your fear of failing hold you down.
