A Small List of Things that Don’t Matter.

As I’m in a bit of a life “rut”, I’ve started realizing that although your life in the now seems routine, monotonous, and a never-ending cycle of getting up, working, and sleeping, only to wake up to the same, believe it or not, your entire life will hardly always look like this. And if it does, well, you, my friend have the power to change it.

Either way, while routine is routine, looking at the bigger picture without a doubt has value. In my personal times of struggle or difficulty, I’ve always sought comfort in the fact that our “now” moments are fleeting, and there are better things in store. Your rough patch is just that: a patch. … More A Small List of Things that Don’t Matter.

Now, the universe had a fight to pick with me and a couple weeks ago, my iPhone crashed on me and had to be wiped completely. Yup. All my pictures are gone (for the most part) ..but I suppose that’s a story for another day. … More Mexico: a Land of Culture
