Now all I have to do is act according to those words. I’ve hit some great steps and realizations (especially during college, my trip to Europe, and within this last year) about my life’s purpose, but I know I really have a solid foot to stand on. I want to empower other people – I basically want people to feel empowered because I’ve inspired them to do so. You don’t have to be Mother Theresa or Martin Luther King (but they’re not bad examples to follow!) to inspire someone, but I want to inspire others the way those famous figures did. I love teaching and teaching music, and that’s a great way to make younger children feel empowered about learning this “mysterious” art form. I also think that my band is a great platform to coincide with my message (after all, we ARE called Save the Future), but most importantly, I need to work at this during my day-to-day life. Again, all of these things are a culmination of my many different experiences, and for my appreciation of having the opportunity to experience them. The more I work on myself, the easier it will be to outwardly display and communicate my message to others.

After ALL of my many experiences, I’m really stepping it up today to try and live the best life that I possibly can. I’m in one of those break-the-monotony moods. I’m from a small state, have a relatively small group of friends, and go to the usual bars and clubs sometimes. I love my friends and family, because they’re the people who have molded me and made the person I am today. After traveling to 10 different countries in Europe for a month, it seems as if anything is possible. This was partially because my friend and I had a different country to be in almost every night, and because we weren’t attached to a reputation or expectation. We encountered so many travelers that were curious and open and friendly. Unfortunately, and maybe due to my inappropriate judgement, I haven’t found this back home in the states. so now I’m going to try and step things up for myself, and in my own life, to live instead of exist. I’m on a good path, and I’ll get by just fine, but it’s that extra desire that I want to carry with me.
