Being human

What does it really mean to be human? How do we define it?

Some seem to struggle with that very meaning and cause us to lose faith and trust. Inhumanity leaves us feeling beaten down and sad. What does it even mean to inhumane? It’s an emotion beyond words, a feeling that cuts deep when it happens to you and you are on the receiving end. It’s usually unjust and leaves us angry, vulnerable, hurt and lost.

But then there are others who seems to have just a little more compassion and patience. Who are nurturing to our soul and who touch our hearts in ways that are unexpected yet so essential. The ones who give us the strengths to fight another day and who help us restore our faith in mankind just at the moment when we’re about to give up.

Being human may not always be easy, but it is the only way to coexist and live in harmony.

Can you imagine what could be if the effort was made and we took the chance to be human?

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. What it like to be human? Well that is a great question and if I had to answer that from my point of view I would have to say that it is the greatest thing that we can possibly feel. Being alive today there are people that are never going to get another chance at life. So, being human to me is a miracle in itself. It’s not about how many cars and homes you had, or about the money in the end, or the boss your not liking at this time. To me it’s about leaving my footprint on someone soul.

    How can we not be thinking about how we are alive. We fight for that everyday no matter what is going on, at the end of the day you want to be alive to see another day no matter what going on around you good or bad.

    So, to close this comment. Being human is what I am doing now, I am touching your soul even if it is a pin prick, I am leaving a mark into your heart. And to me there is nothing better than being human to do such a miracle for someone else that needs it in there life…

    Again, thank you for making think about how I am alive and what it does mean to feel human. See in the end you might of came off the worse week of your life, but at the same time you saved someone life in this process of this post. Just remember that in your times of trouble your healing people and you don’t sometimes realize that power inside you.

    Take care and many hugs my tiger, this was powerful beyond measure here…

    1. Perfect and I couldn’t have said it better.
      Being human is so much more than just belonging to a species and to live from day to day. It is much bigger than ourselves and knows no selfish motives. It is leaving that footprint, touching somebody else’s soul and making a difference. To restore their faith in humanity and find pleasure by doing for others.
      And as far as I’m concerned, by no means did I have the worse week of my life, I just get tired sometimes. I will never give up fighting the good fight and I will never lose my beliefs. It keeps me where I need to be instead of lowering my standards. It will help me stay unique even if I have to fight against the grain and the popular choice of most others. I am a warrior of the light, sometimes I just want to lower my guard a little and relax from being that strong tiger all the time.
      A d as far as making a difference for somebody else, it is what I strive for and it was a big reason as to why this blog was started. If I can make a difference for one person, then I have accomplished what I set out to do.
      I’m glad you could enjoy this post and it brought meaning. Have a great day white crane….

  2. How innocently and unknowingly your posts touch the cords of heart. In awe of your writings. Definitely not a question to be taken lightly, what is being human? I vouch for respect towards others and letting their life experiences unfold the way you let yours, without judgement. This is just a tiny bit. I am sure we humans are worthy of doing much more that can benefit not only humanity but our environment and earth too.

    1. Thank you so very much Sherry, this means the world to me and I appreciate your kind, kind words.
      You are absolutely right and there is so much more that can be done, but it starts with one person at a time and if we can slow down a bit, we all have the capability to make an impact. I call it “The power of one”
