Chaos and the Calm

No surefire feeling.

No certainty.

No predictability. 

No stability.




Reflection of your younger self. 

When you thought you had it all figured out. 

The world at your fingertips.

Endless hopes. Ambitious dreams. 


And then one day, you realize: you’ve changed. 



Growth is necessary.

It is warranted to calm the chaos.

To ease the mind.

To set the soul free. 

To reach those endless hopes.

Those ambitious dreams.


To make yourself better than you were in your younger years.

Back when you thought you had it all figured out.

Only to one day understand your true self.

To bring you closer to the person that you’re meant to be.


Life is your greatest teacher. 

Yet it is relentless in its lessons.


Don’t focus on the end result.

Don’t stay stagnant in the past.

Live in the moment.

Cherish the time you have now.

Laugh until you cry.

Or cry until you have nothing left in you. 


Be fearless in the way you love.

In the way you live.

In the way you care. 

In the way you dream. 


Calm the chaos in your mind. 

In your heart. 

In your soul. 


Love unconditionally.

Your family.

Your friends.

Your life.



Life is balanced on a razor blade.

Like a double edged sword.

There is no calm without the chaos.

No certainty without uncertainty.

No predictability without unpredictability.

No stability without instability. 


Yet, we continue to live.

Despite the chaos.

Above the odds

To reach the calm.

The peace.

The serenity.

To see the beauty of it all.

…even when it seems impossible.
