Everyone say's they have their up's and downs. The past little bit i had the impression i was having a "down" but today i had a new more hopeful idea, I'd like to view the world differently instead of going down from your ups, sometimes we just stay at the same spot way too long. We stop improving and become ungrateful for what we have. How can we go down from what we already have experienced that doesn't make much sense does it? Sure we can go down in income or in friends but we can never become less of a person. Our soul and personality are always improving and gaining a new lesson. It is in our flatlines that we are just waiting to learn something new. We haven't fallen down! We've just gone momentarily blind.

This is a karst landscape you can see that the land is bumpy from spots of the earth decaying underneath the surface, these landscapes cause sinkholes and all types of mischief. (This post may seem incredibly random and boring but i do have a point, and its a pretty rad and insightful one so please continue reading.)
This is also a karst landscape in china, the top of these mountains at one point used to be equal with the land, over time the land changed from a prairie to mountainous all from riding itself of unstable, and ungrounded dirt. In time when all the dirt was washed and sunken away there came to be beautiful and tall mountains. The amazing part of this was the mountain was already there but no one knew it.
Our existence should be the same as these mountains we all have a mountain in our souls, we all have a glorious purpose in our life, we all have something in our souls that is as strong as solid rock. Our life is a constant struggle to rid us of our imperfections. Were born into the world a prairie and our goal is to leave a mountain. We cant become a mountain by rising up above our prairie we can only become one by looking inward, our mountain is already with us. Its not something we create its something we discover. To become a mountain is no easy task it takes pain and struggle to find out who we truly are. It takes losing the parts of us that we mistook for rock. It takes years of loss and discovery but if we don't spend all our talents and ability's to rid us of our imperfections then we put sentiment on our mountain top and prairie. We then can to easily lose sight of what makes us, us. I never want to lose my vision I want to find out what i have in me to make a mountain.

As i fill a online banking account they ask me ten questions about my life, some of them were, " whats my favorite animal, where does my closest sibling live, and whats my dream job." I came to a realization that all the answers to these questions could change tomorrow, i used to believe myself to be so original, to have a forward thinking focus and the base of who i am couldn't change, just when i choose my future life with the love of my life everything else changes, im suddenly hit with doubts of everything from what are my interests to what my career goals are. Im pretty grateful i have someone by my side during this time of discovery, it makes it more exciting as well. the only thing i have to worry about is will i know the answers to my bank account tomorrow.
