I hope you are off to a great week! We got some new stuff dropping today at The Shop but before we get to that I wanted to share with you a story about my trip… well not the typical vacation trip or festival trip I would normally attend right around this time of the year but a different kind of trip. I took acid for the first time last year and had a pretty crazy realization about life and how mind-blowing it actually is, despite all the ups and downs we have to go through over and over again. Despite the obstacles being truly endless.
Yes, even with all the craziness that comes with it, life really is mind-blowing….just absolutely nuts. Most of you reading this email have gone through at least a quarter of your life or more! Just think back about your life journey from childhood until now….isn’t that a trip? I sure trip out how I’m already 36 when it still feels like College was just last week.
Well that’s exactly what life is; when it’s all said and done it’s a wonderful trip and a mind-blowing experience.
Life is short and we all know it, yet we often lose perspective of that because we are only ever given the present (today; right now) and we hardly take the time to reflect just how far we have come in our own lives.
It’s mind-blowing to think that despite knowing life is short, some of us procrastinate, hesitate to start that one thing we’ve always wanted to do, hold on to grudges, we hate, or are envious of others. Why though, when life has so much more to offer?
We are put into this world for a mindblowing trip of a lifetime, and life truly is whatever we make of it; how that trip serves you will be based on your own experience and perspective.
Enjoy it, but more importantly embrace it! Embrace every moment, even the shitty moments, because they are what makes the good times extra sweet.
Now, go enjoy this trip that is life, it’s summer after all! Although it seems hard to enjoy much of anything now, I have seen so many of my friends, peers, family, and many random people on the internet make the most of their time during this very difficult year, and I know you can too!
