Depth

body of water under blue and white skies

I’ve always been the type of person that’s in thought constantly. And every once in a while, with various moments in my life I find myself in deep thought.

Deep thought has consumed me lately.

Please don’t confuse over thinking to deep thinking. There is a huge difference.

I’m at a time in my life where Life is becoming more clear. The situations I have encountered and the people that I have interacted with have all contributed to where I am now. I’m observing the things around me with a view that I wouldn’t have been able to obtain in my early 20’s. The naivety that I used to have has already begun to fade with every passing second of the day.

The more I decide to view things from all different types of perspectives, attributes to the open-mindedness I already had but in depth.

I’m coming up on a milestone birthday in the next couple of months and although with every anniversary of my journey around the sun I reflect on my life. It’s different this time. Changes are happening around us everyday and although we wish we had the power to stop some of the nuances that Life keeps giving us. We can’t.

And why should we?

If I tried to stop all of the changes that have happened throughout my life because it made me uncomfortable then I wouldn’t be growing. And If I’m not growing, I’m not maturing. And if I’m not maturing, then I’m stuck.

So I’m constantly in deep thought. I’m constantly thinking about the world around me, not just my personal world.

I’m constantly observing. Constantly watching.

And constantly thinking.

“Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty.”
― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi
