This photograph is the perfect image to express the newfound skill I have acquired. It took thirty-three years to learn the art of brick wall boundaries. The weight its discovery has lifted off of my shoulders and the joy it has brought to my life has made this skill the most valuable tool ever acquired.
Don’t spend your life stretching and bending for others. Empathize. Care. Be present. But, learn yourself first. Set boundaries you need for you, and stick to them. This image is beautiful because it is the blurry chaos of life, but there is a clear brick wall providing a focal point. Be the brick wall against the chaos. It is a glorious feeling.
