“Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it will evade you, but if you notice the other things around you, it will gently come and sit on your shoulder.”
-Henry David Thoreau-
▪️Expectations… the mental blueprint for architecting a foundation to build a house of perceived outcome.▪️Set standards at a reasonable and rational level to sit inside the structurally sound beauty of being.▪️Set standards at an unreasonable and irrational level and be ready for infrastructural collapse.▪️All standards derive from emotions.▪️No gesture of love goes unnoticed and sometimes a realized impact is not immediate.▪️Like acts of kindness to not resurface within interactions until passed down several generations later in a civilization or an author writing a masterpiece to not be renowned until two hundred years have passed, like many of Thoreau’s essays.▪️Expectations… the way to realize peace through understanding.▪️
I never expected so many people to take interest in what I’ve been doing playing with words, art, and research. At best, I figured maybe I could entertain and inspire a few of my closest friends. But, I’ve been led down a pathway beyond those expectations. Thank you. Appreciate all of your support and so glad you’re here.
…Words written with love today, have the power to echo in minds for centuries to come…🦋
