One day I will find the right words…as those words will find me…and they will be love. @johnfallon #openheart (at Depoe Bay Sea Wall)

My heart is heavy today for some reason.  I’ve been told I’m too sensitive to others, that I am a fixer. That I take care of others to the detriment of myself, maybe it’s being the middle of five siblings, maybe it’s because I feel those in need are so close to the light.  That If I make them feel a glimpse of the love they seek it will empower them to rise up to their calling. That love will be contagious. Sometimes I feel misunderstood. I don’t understand in life how people want anything less than joy for the ones they love, for the people in their life both loves and lovers alike, for the perfect stranger on the street, of for any living being. I am nowhere near perfect, I work hard to observe my words and actions and adjust towards an open heart when needed, I have mountains to climb as well, but deep down I am happy and I  try to always be kind and lead with an open heart casting fears aside, always staying a footstep in front of the shadows. I want so badly for everyone I know to find peace and happiness, to the point of losing sleep trying to figure out ways to help those most in need.  They ask for my help, but rarely change anything. I want to feel what people say they feel from me, it’s been so long.  All in all this is just a moment, one of many that make a life.  Even in this moment I still feel complete gratitude, and the utmost love for everything here on earth. Lying in my bed tonight I hear the town tractor pull and combine derby wind down… Followed by dozens of coyotes talking to each other from across the fields.  Now they wound down and it’s just crickets. I wonder if they know how precious life and love truly is. We are all the lucky ones.  Through all the broken and bruised hearts in this world… they still beat. Love is like a nuclear battery at the core of each shattered heart, and I will always give what kindness I have to give no matter how close a shadow falls behind me, and no matter how faint a beat, for a beat of any sort means you are alive, and that is the utmost gift to be grateful for.

Never had a bucket list… I don’t believe in them…(Fukkittt) list more like it… Get out and do it… What are you waiting for? Again travel is the only thing in life one can spend money on that makes one richer if you ask me… One night in #bangkok weaving in and out riding motorcycles in traffic you get used to near death experiences and just let go. @johnfallon #thailand #motorcycle #alive (at Hiestand Homestead)

Thailand- Riding motorcycles with your crutches strapped to your side makes a man feel like he has wings even if he ain’t able to walk. Damn am I grateful to be walking again. ;) hard to explain even with a lot of pain after six operations in four years each step is a small victory and personal celebration ;) sending hyper ballad some love. You know who u are ;) πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺ😏 @johnfallon #happyboy (at Hiestand Homestead)

Hay harvest on the farm done.  It’s amazing the earth continues to give as we cut it’s plants like split ends in a hair salon, trimming pieces off to feed our hungry appetites all while waiting for it to regenerate anew and the cycle continues all whilst spinning just over a thousand miles an hour in any given spot on the equator!! Perplexed, and grateful for things unknown.  @johnfallon #banks #Oregon  (at Hiestand Homestead)

I β™₯️ #Cambodia #Cambodian water #buffalo - how magnificent to see them with their young in the jungles… gratitude challenge day 3 of 5. 1. Grateful for all the amazing people I have met and become close with on my travels around this awesome spinning #planet 2. For the knowledge that beauty can come from absolutely everything regardless of how we first see it… Even in pitch black once your eyes adjust it will find the light therein. 3. That perspective is one of my greatest teachers, falling just behind unconditional love and the open heart. Begin your week with a smile!! #ankgorwat #siemreap #burnstrongshinebright @johnfallon
