I once had a friend who described me as uninhibited. She told me she looked on and saw me as this happy, resilient force. She told me that she was in awe of my ability to shrug off the frustrations around me and stay focused on my goals.
What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? I’m motivated by the pursuit of spreading peace and compassion. I didn’t realize this until I was in college and one of my professors started talking about being a reflective practitioner.
Sometimes we don’t have enough words to accurately describe what we mean or how we feel. Take for example the word pride. It’s tricky because it can be both a noun and a verb.
It can be about the resonance of feeling good about oneself, or it can be the indicator of the downfall of greatness. Pride is a tricky subject.
I have always been fascinated with space. I enjoy thinking about how our solar system is like other scientific structures. For example, the earth orbits the sun and the sun orbits the center of our galaxy. And, on the surface this reminds me of the conceptual drawings of electrons circling the nucleus of an atom.
