Why I wrote this: It is an inner awareness that everything in this world is immortal; stars, even lasting for billions of light years, will suddenly explode into a mass of blackness after its glimmering moments. Nothing lasts forever, even if it seems like forever. The world is meant to pass away.
I, with inner anxieties occurring in the most unsuspected moments, had to battle my demons of fear with the acceptance that we must all wither away. Must. It is an imperative for every living, existing thing. Even though at some point, it gives me the scare that the ground is about to cave in and swallow up lands and lives, I also feel at ease knowing that storms and tragedies pass, and everything, once more, will turn into a holy white canvass, singing only of sacred things, fully cleansed, after a life worth living.
30 Things Before 30 is a collection of texts and stories to remind me of a beautiful 3-decade existence, and to propel me to pursue much more beautiful, future years.
