It is not The End, It's The Beginning

well, gotta share a little thought around here. yeah i know, my photos donot match with the caption.. 

Red it in Kinfolk Magz Vol 16 page 51:
“To Belong is to act as an investor, owner and creator of this place. To be welcome, even if we are strangers.”

Community is about the experience of belonging. We’re in community each time we find a place where we belong. The word BELONG has two meaning. First and foremost, to belong is to be related to and a part of something.  The opposite of belongings is to feel isolated and always ( all ways ) on the margin, an outsider. To Belong is to know, even in the middle of the night, that i’m among friends. The Second meaning of the word belong has to do with being an owner: Something belongs to me. To belong to a community is to act as a creator and co-owner of that community. What I consider mine I will build and nurture. The work is to seek a wider and deeper sense of Emotional ownership in our communities; it means fostering a sense of ownership and accountability among all of community’s citizen. Belonging can also be thought of as a longing to be. Being is our capacity to find our deeper purpose in all that we do. Community is the container within which our longing to be is fulfilled.

"If we saw others as another aspect of ourselves, we’d welcome them in our midst."

shared a little because it’s too long to copy paste it here. but it’s a great column written by Peter Block

in the middle of moving on.. from one season of life to another.. 2016 won’t be easy for me. but who want an easy life anyway ? we look for easy but life won’t bring you there - i guess - as we keep moving on. As we keep moving forward, community is the first thing in mind that i look for and i desperately need it in 2016. cause, life is tough. Change is place full of fear. Question is do you want to spend this life on your own, on your own strength ? I red another blog too.. "Why I Want To Be Average.” by Reuben Morgan.______They say that we are an average of our five closest friends.Their passions and their struggles, their successes and failings, they all leave a profound mark on us. Do we really want to settle for anything less than the sort of friends who inspire, challenge & captivate us?_____

so, how you guys feeling about 2016 ? i have a feeling 2016 going to be a bomb!
