Space They Cannot Touch

Having personal sanctuary is important to me.

I find I am best able to emotionally process/mentally decompress when I am at my most comfortable, and/or am in a physical setting that allows me to give undivided attention to that which needs it.

There is no such clause in the terms & conditions of life that guarantees safe passage to a clear headspace, though.
I mean, shelter in general is not even a basic human ‘right.’  We are so fortunate to wake up under cover of warmth; to go to sleep and not spend the night with one eye open.

Not everyone is.  Some never will get to know what that feels like — a peaceful night’s rest.  A harshness of reality, yes…but all the more reason to say a little gratitude today.

If my late teens and early 20’s were raw exposure to the injustices of the world in which I live clashing with the earnest ideologies of youth, then my mid-late 20’s are me asserting my place, firmly, amongst them — and not losing myself along the way.  Fairly certain the path to self-actualization does reach camp summit by age 25.  It is OK to be a WIP and not a VIP — a ‘work in progress,’ that is.

I keep carving out my niche one day at a time.  That’s all I can do, and I count myself blessed enough to have the ability; to even have the chance.
