Anais Nin: You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.



Opening up
isn't easy. 
You need to be watered.
Nurtured, because after all, 
we are little precious, violent, insecure flowers.
Aren't we?

It's about to be spring in a hot second.
What are you going to do with yourself?
I suggest changing at least one thing about yourself that you can change or see being different - The key is finding another part of yourself in this voyage of change and also this voyage of spiritual and mental awareness.
See there's that word change again....
