Home

Home has been super comfortable. I’ve been worried about my work ethic and my “why” shifting. There were books on the shelf with messages written on the first page to me. They were written by my grandfather. When I was younger, I never actually really read these books. Now that I’ve been reading them, their thoughts and stories were filled with a lot more struggle, self-doubt, and sacrifice than I could have imagined. It reminds me this – I shouldn’t be complacent, because what we have is not given to us – it is earned by our words and action. For those of you who also struggle with this – I suggest you pore into where we came from. Just like how foods have been harvested and cooked with toil and sweat, the roots of humility and beginnings will ground us to form our own opinions of the world, to march with honesty, purpose, and diligence.
