“Life is too important to be taken seriously”
– Oscar Wilde
“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”

Life is experienced in a full kaleidoscope of circumstances
that show the endless ways that it can be experienced. How we choose to experience those
circumstances will ultimately dictate what we get out of them, and how much
meaning and depth will be had.
One of the vanguard reasons I love writing is because it allows for the exploration of life through the written medium, which showcases countless writing styles, but also because it allows you to examine meaningful circumstances at length, but more importantly, to record them as a time capsule of sorts for yourself, or for others. Additionally, the wisdom garnered from many of the most astute individuals in the past still lives on, all due to their choice to pen their thoughts in timeless fashion.
This merger of an individual’s experience and creative process, brought about through writing, still resonates today. Such instances not only allows individuals to learn from the past in myriad ways, but ultimately also aids individuals to live a better life, a wiser life, a more fulfilling life, all because those individuals took pen to paper and seared their voices into the pages of history after imprinting the insights they learned through the trials and tribulations they faced.
That is incredible power, not only because words have the influence to change people’s lives as well as history in significant ways through their inherent resonance, but words add depth to life that at times can be looked upon time and again for those with appreciation of it, as is the baseline for these thoughts.
Don’t ever underestimate the power of writing, whether it is blogs, paper notes, letters, creative writing, poetry, fiction, short stories, and so on, to add depth to your life and those of others. For just like a mindful and deep breath brings a moment of clarity, no matter how fleeting it may be, the act of writing can also bring clarity that can allow not only for the recording of meaningful circumstances that took place in an individual’s life, but this also allows for more incisive examination of meaning within the very fibers of life, the untold depths that often go unexplored not only in the moment, but later on.
Such circumstances while possibly seemingly insignificant at the time, might just echo through the end of time.
