Life thoughts

So when you’ve been sick in bed for over a week, your mind begins to wonder you sometimes begin to think philosophically. To say I have had a lot of time on my hands would be an understatement but I have been thinking a lot about how much life has changed in a year and how appreciative I am of everything that has happened, good and bad.  I have been getting pretty existential and thinking philosophically with the year I have had.

I am going to assume that most of my readers know what a stressful year I’ve had as I have written about it extensively.  While my struggles have been difficult and hard to overcome, I have been thinking a lot about how we all struggle and in each person we meet in life, is struggling in a way. I consider my struggles to be part of my success and don’t regret any decisions I have made. In my sickness, I have just been thinking of how cruel of a world we live in and how unnecessarily mean we are too each other and how proud we are of it. We live in a world were we ignore each other to get someone else’s attention and then brag about it. I know this all seems jumbled and doesn’t make sense and I really apologize for that but I just wanted to put it out there that I am simply perplexed that we can’t be nicer to one another ad have a deeper level of empathy and compassion because we all are humans and want the same things, love, compassion, and understandings.

A friend in need

Hey all,

So as I have been thinking things have finally cooled down and stabilized, a close friend from college called me two days ago and said she was coming to LA and wanted to see me. When she finally got here and settled in at my place, she turned to me and told me something really serious was going on and that she needed a place to stay for a bit. I wont share what exactly she shared with me for her privacy, but I will say helping a friend in need is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. We all have our struggles and we never should have to face them alone or have to fear reaching out for help or comfort in times of need. I told her she could stay with us as long as she wanted and that I’d be more than happy to help in anyway I can.
