Choose to Run Toward the Horizon

Choose to run toward the horizon with me! Let’s go! We have nothing to lose except the chance for genuine happiness and inner peace! Reach out to me and let’s chat!

“If you took a moment to reflect upon how many human beings across all of history have had to live all of their years — their brief stint on this imperfect planet — beneath the weight of disappointment, emptiness and regret, you would look at the opportunities in front of you and you would see them in a new light. 

You would take yourself more seriously.

You would realize that perhaps you are not someone held back by true impossibility, but by an unwillingness to be uncomfortable. Held back by the compulsion to seem cool and fit in and to do what has always been done in the way that you have always done it, to slide by on the surface and never touch anything calling to you from just beneath. 

You would realize that the stories you tell yourself about why you are stuck and cannot move forward are just that — stories. That anybody who has changed their life in any significant, beautiful way was also confronted with a terrifying, endless unknown through which they had to hold up a torch lit by their own desire and make their way to the other side.

You would realize that you now have to choose what you will hurt for — the pain of the life you might have had, or the pain it takes to start having it. One is an endless suffering masked by a constant pleasure. The other is a more acute discomfort that opens the path to genuine happiness and inner peace. 

Then you would realize that there is only one choice. 

And you would start running toward the horizon.”*
