The grass swayed back and forth as the wind gently caresses my skin. I placed my hand on the rough soil covered stone, brushed away some of the dirt aside while trying to see if it was stable enough to hold my body. I sat and stretched out my legs, trying to get as comfortable as I could be. On this moment, I could taste the leafy world, and smell its greenish scent commanding my senses to pay attention to the world surrounding me. These are moments of tranquility in my life where I don’t need to become anyone, don’t need prove myself, and I don’t need to be good at anything at all. We spend the majority of our lives trying to change, trying to become good enough, and trying to become somebody we are not. In these moments of peace, the answer is there all along. We are stronger than who we think we are. Life can get tough at times but we are very tough as well. We become a little better each day, a little wiser, gain a little bit more skill, and we trust ourselves a little bit more. If there is one thing I learned is that I have been fighting since I was born, if I look into a mirror, I don’t see a man, I see warrior who has been through a lot. So I just try to be more patient with myself, enjoy and trust in my journey. After all, the journey has become so awesome and so beautiful that I cannot help but enjoy every moment of it.
