It’s officially summer, and I couldn’t be happier. After working long days and sleepless stressful nights, solidarity is what I needed.
The other day I had a friend drop me off at Universal Studios Hollywood so I wouldn’t have to pay for parking. I walked in, purchased a couple of Butter Beers from Hogwarts, and then I left. This action took about 12 minutes from start to finish. Although it was incredibly short, and you would think, manic, it was the most peace I’ve had in 6 months.
To be in a sea of people roaming whichever way with no steady flow or current, made me feel perfectly tranquil. To be alone in a crowd full of people, knowing my destination and what I came to accomplish, made me feel on top of the world and 100% confident in my purpose. Yes, this purpose was only to grab a couple of butter beers and then head out. However, this is how I wish to feel in my own life, in reality. The world is our theme park, and we are living our lives against the traffic and waves. But to know what we are called to do and know who is calling us to do that will give us the perfectly peaceful feeling I think we all long for.
Cheers to you, Summer. You are bringing a new season and I like it.
-Breed style, Breedlove.
