When I first took this picture I thought to myself “man I can’t wait to put a quote on this” but I just realized that this picture speaks for itself in how I try to live my life. Allow me to explain: •
🚶♂️The walk sign to me represents society and how people try to create boundaries for where and when you can walk across the street. As it flashes between don’t walk and walk, it almost forces people to live their life according to what the sign tells them to do. When it says walk, society has ingrained in your mind to walk with the rest of the crowd that is crossing the street and as you get closer and closer to end of the street you start to realize that you walked the same path as everyone else...you took the safe route, the comfortable route, the path that society wanted you to take. •
🛣I look at the street as Life... When I cross the street I walk when the street light says not to and take the path that no one else is willing to take, and I implore you to do the same. Now you are probably thinking “Matthew are you trying to kill me by walking while cars are going” and I say “no I’m not trying to kill you I’m trying to help you create one absolutely amazing experience while walking the street of life”. •
🤔 And this is the message I am trying to share: Don’t let society tell you how to live your life because the moment you follow society is the moment you live your life like the rest of society, you die like the rest of society, you achieve the same as the rest of society. And that is not the purpose of life, the purpose of life is to cross the street when no one else is, to go the path where no one else goes, even though there may be cars or obstacles or adversities that stand in your way, it is going to be all worth it because you created one beautiful experience along the way. You grew as a person along the way. You became a better you as you crossed that street of life....And when the street ends you look back on the path that you walked and think to yourself “Man, what a wonderful life I lived”. •
That is what this picture means to me. Comment how it translates to you in your own life and journey 🔥
Spunky Scarlett's new favorite thing is to make songs up for EVERYTHING. The latest creation has the following lyrics "I have a mom. She is great. Her name is dennette rae martinez and she has a hubby. I have a dad he is amazing. His name is ummmm. I think his name is Oscar Martinez. He's the best dadddddy. I want pizza!"
