Exchanging The Human Experience

Exchanging The Human Experience

At the start of the year I made a resolution to embrace a practice that the author Seth Godin called ‘having a radical amount of empathy’. 

From the first time I heard the phrase, I couldn’t shake it. Call it a case of confirmation bias, but I began having recurring conversations that lead me back to this idea of radical empathy. I carried this thought with me and soon realised that everything I wanted to achieve for 2019 was fundamentally tied to this concept.

 


All Things In Nature Are Transient

All Things In Nature Are Transient

All things in nature are transient. The seasons are just one prevalent example of this, and we cannot control them (although we are certainly affecting them in ways that our mother nature would earnestly prefer we did not).

As I get older I am learning to delight in those things that are fleeting - transience serves me either way - as a reminder that I must hold precious what will surely not last; but also that things I pain to endure will surely pass.
