I’ve always had a tendency to find things I’m passionate about and chase after them. When I was little it was skiing, and drawing, then as I got older, relationships, surfing, travel, photography. With most of these things, I’d catch up to them, and be surprised by the feeling of something missing...
I’m a little embarrassed by how long it took, but am finally starting understand what’s going on. When you work really hard towards anything because you love it, it’s easy to associate the results with the work, but it’s most likely the love that got you there.
The subject of your love or passion is a great excuse to apply the good vibes, but the good vibes come first, and don’t have to rely on the conditions of the subject, they rely mostly on the mindfulness of your thought. Not always easy, depending on where you look, but it’s sure easier to try and control your internal conditions than the external. Plus, the funny thing is - you tend to find what you’re looking for.
Cheers to 2018... inside out.
