We used to live in a low socio-economic area that didn’t have the best reputation. While it’s easy to paint whole areas with the same brush, reputation aside, the area does have a ‘survival’ energy when I feel into it now. It feels like a ‘trapped’ energy where people go through the motions and even though they do the best they can, they’re not ‘living’.
But it’s not really about the place. It’s about how one chooses to live.
What is lacking in so many places (like the one we used to live in) is a feeling of thriving, of creativity, of adventure, and of LIFE.
