#1294 - My North Star
This corner of the web and my life has had many purposes over the years: a dojo to practice my writing skills and kindle my creativity, a repository to save ideas and intuitions that may or may not become something more in the future, an album to fix moments I don't want to forget, a coach to reflect and explore some questions, a window to display my perspective on the world, a mirror to look into my own darkness and search for lights. Sometimes it's a chaotic mix of some or all of this.
In more than 1200 posts, I've covered everything from the most abstract reflections on the things of the world to the most intimate questions of my life.
All completely random.
This corner is probably one of the most authentic and whole versions of myself.
And it's out there for public display.
Fascinating, isn't it?
The fact is, somehow, this corner has become my anchor.
It's how I find myself and my center every morning.
Even in the darkest time, this little practice is my North Star.
Today I woke up lost, with tough questions weighing on my heart and clouding my mind. And I had to leave before I could write.
I could sense the pain growing inside.
Until I sat on the train, opened the laptop and started writing these words.
The pain, the struggles and the tough questions are still there, but now I also feel that a spark of hope is somewhere out there.
I just need to go out and find it.
