Creating Space – by Amy Lenehan

Some of the most beautiful moments, experiences, strength and people arise out of darkness and chaos. Imperfection is what makes us human and the journey of accepting the paradox that we are perfectly imperfect is where our beauty and true self love lies.

When i travel i get to meet a lot of new people, especially if i am traveling solo (did i ever mention that solo trips are the best?).
Some of this people i met were just a good talk, some were special for one night, or for a long adventures lost in the jungle.
Then there is an elite of people. Is the kind of personalities that will remain inside of you, people of which you will remember with a smile because their vibes stroke you in a way no one else did before. Their light was just different, and you felt it and that experience will change something inside of you forever.

This morning i woke up happy, embracing my darkness with some incredible thoughts. It felt refreshing.
A few moments later opening Facebook, my eyes stopped on this article posted from a girl i met a few years ago in Bali, Amy Lenehan. She chouldn't express with better words what i was feeling in that exact moment.
I hope you enjoy it too.

"Sometimes you get to a certain place in your life where momentum has been building and it seems to eat you up and spit you out in a completely new direction. One of my bestfriends once told me “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result” I’ve basically dedicated my life to trying different ways of approaching external problems or circumstances to try and russell up different positive results (life is an experiment huh). This approach in itself is what’s led (forced) me to go within.

When I was younger my only wish was to have the power to take away another’s suffering, this ideal I’ve strived to achieve has been a tough lesson, for suffering is a complex web of interdependencies and you unfortunately are not able to take away or ‘fix’ another’s or the worlds pain or suffering. You cannot change the world around you; you can only change how you see the world around you and therefore how you feel about the world around you. It starts with you, inspire people through your actions- be the change you want to see in the world.

Don’t ever forget that some of the most beautiful moments, experiences, strength and people arise out of darkness and chaos. Imperfection is what makes us human and the journey of accepting the paradox that we are perfectly imperfect is where our beauty and true self love lies..."

Hi, I am Mike, and you must've stumbled upon my travel journal unconsciously, maybe looking for something interesting and well written. If that is so, you are in the wrong place, but no worries is okay. These pages are useless, lack grammar, but they also have some flaws. Enjoy your reading!
