Weathered

Kodak 200. Nikon F60. In front of RCBC circa 2010
The thing about being in your early twenties, I noticed, is that you can't help but be too self-absorbed. You only need to look at the internet to be reminded that this is your time or how the possibilities are limitless.

You want to do everything or be everywhere. But there's only so much you can do. Or so far you can reach.

Add to that fact that your worries it's not just about your problems anymore (i.e. your crushed dreams) but your parent's, your sibling's, your friends', even the world....You're sure you're meant for something bigger yet you can't even get past the page you were reading without falling asleep.

I came across this quote today at work:
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
Oh, Alan Watts. You say it so easily, yet I try live up to it quite hard.
