Why do we accept the norms of our societal surroundings?
A question that has been running rampant in my head lately. It's been a hard truth to swallow but I've come to a realization. In my current existence I sit day in and day out without much enthusiasm for what I do and each day forward brings more of the same. I sit at my desk and really seem to be at a loss for why I have accepted this reality and why so many of those around me do as well. In my search for answers I consult with those around me to gather some sense of reasoning for this existence.
The people around me are able to provide me with outsider perspective that this optimistic mind can’t process. When consulting with those around me I attempt to delve further than surface level conversation. aiming to dive a little deeper into what brings this person alive. The answers vary but the consensus seems to be the same
"I'm not yet where I need to be".
With another common response being
"this is life"
I can respect the journey in the former but there's something in my being that can't accept the latter. It is my belief that we all hold an immense potential, a potential far greater then what our daily lives has been constructed to achieve. Often I feel the lack of tapping into this potential leads so much into the negativity, depression, and monotonous existence that seems to surround the conventional world.
As I think about the answers I receive, while pondering the path ahead of me, I stare at the picture above and really get a sense of immense empowerment. I seem to understand this striking animals beauty and in so doing come to the realization that we to all have the potential to live in such beauty.
WE ARE STRONG
WE ARE FIERCE
WE ARE FREE, WE WERE ALWAYS MEANT TO BE !
