This will be a very short post. Mainly because I have a full week of activities and obligations, and secondly because today I'm having a bit of writers block, as my mind is currently overrun with many random thoughts that don't particularly seem very interesting or pertinent to sharing with the rest of society. It happens sometimes! I just got back from Haiti again last night. It was a very VERY random sporadic trip (the ticket was booked a few hours before leaving). I wasn't gonna go, but I threw caution to the wind anyway because I'm impetuous like that. I really do love Haiti. It was my third time going, and I had a lovely time as usual. While I was there, I had no phone pretty much the entire trip (because Apple chargers suck and so does my phone), so I didn't know what was going on in the rest of the world. Coming back to the States, I see so many destructive and terrible things happening all over the place. Then comes the age old question; why do we continually feel the need to destroy this beautiful planet and the people on it?
This earth in magnificent and special and I want to experience as much of it as I can in my lifetime. That's why every once in a while, even if I do have a million things going on in my schedule, I make sure to appreciate and experience as much of it as I possibly can.
Sometimes things in my head do get pretty deep and extremely tangent prone in times like these. What does it all even mean? Why are we even here? What is the purpose of this life we live?? I'll spare you from all of the specifics in my own head, but encourage you to divulge into your own spirals. Sure it's a bit mentally draining, but necessary for us to understand how we really feel about everything going on.
We tend to be so wrapped up in our own lives that we rarely take the time to fully immerse ourselves and see the grand scheme of things. We all go through the motions of typical living and functioning in society, possibly even showing signs of empathy when strongly provoked, but in our great quest to be better, more compassionate people, discussions are necessary. Talk to your friends not just about other people or events, but about ideas... theories... philosophies!
Maybe I'm not even making much sense, but the ramblings of crazy people are often praised later as revolutionary, right? Or perhaps I just haven't had much sleep this weekend! Either way, please let me know your thoughts. About anything!
P.s. I haven't even been home yet actually. Just typed this blog on my phone. Gotta make it work!
P.p.s. Its kinda crazy the places we consider safe and unsafe these days. My first time going to Haiti I was a bit worried, but this past time I felt right at home. The first time I traveled to London, I had no concerns at all, but now unfortunately it seems to be in quite a state of unrest.
P.p.p.s. I actually do have one more international trip planned for this week (it's still my birthday in my head). Anybody have any guesses?
