self renewal

Living & Inanimate

The most notable distinction between living and inanimate beings is that the former maintain themselves by renewal
— Dewey

Do not be stagnate.  Do not be afraid to grow.  There will be ups and downs for sure, but try not to let those scare you.  Sometimes its hard to trust the process and enjoy the journey when you have an end game in mind but you'll miss so many of the good things if you don't consciously look for the joys in the little things.  Taking a breath, hanging out, and doing nothing, can sometimes be the best thing for you when you're constantly moving 500 miles an hour.
