My immediate family would say I don’t give a shit, while a few others would say I’m exceptional and kind. Then there’s the vast majority that don’t even know I exist or at least act like I don’t. We are riddles wrapped tin foil, because the outside tells us nothing and inside even less. Unless you put a label on it you soon forget what it is you put in the freezer. You usually have to wait till it defrost to find out. And by then you’re stuck with whatever you got.
Focus and awareness are not bad things to center your mind on. Either is emptiness and cleansing. I’ve discovered that both have left with a clearer mind and less clutter. Oh I still have my moments of stress and anxiety. But I’m mindful enough to know, nothing last forever. Saint and sinner are the images we all project. It’s usually not left up to us to create that label. We’re born and then we die, and whatever essence we leave behind becomes our legacy. Don’t get tied down to one label. Allow yourself to explore, to make mistakes. Labelling is often a condemnation. It limits who you can become and who you need to be.
