At the age of 11, you learned that there is beauty in all things, but that not everybody is willing to see that beauty. At the age of 12, you learned that there is so much more to life than the friends you have. At the age of 14, you’ve realized that your family won’t be around forever. Spend as much time as possible with them, before its too late. At the age of 15, you know what it feels like to have your heart broken and you understand why certain things shouldn’t work out. At the age of 16, you learned that giving yourself to everybody only takes away from your own self. You are worth so much. Know your worth. At the age of 17, you learned that letting go of the people who bring toxicity to your life is not a crime. Putting yourself before others is not selfish. At the end of the day you live for you. At the age of 18, you realized how to love yourself. Self destruction is not loving yourself. At the age of 19, you learned that everybody has a place in this world and how quickly that place can be taken away. You’re 21 now, and life has never been what you planned or expected it to be and that is the greatest thing you can ask for in life. What messes us up the most is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be. At the age of 22, I hope you learn to live life without regret. Go after whatever you want and don’t let anybody or anything get in the way of your happiness.

Stay close to the things that make you feel alive. Listen to your favorite song on repeat. Watch the sunset. Fall asleep to the sound of rain. Build a pillow fort. Let the sunshine from the window pour over you. Gaze up at the stars and count as many as you can until you lose count. Binge your favorite t.v. show. The smell of old books, daytime moons, that feeling of deja vu, thrift shops, long car rides. It’s the little things in life that make everything worthwhile. And when you feel like you wanna give up, when you feel alone, when you convince yourself that you don’t matter, try and remember this: there are so many foods you have not tasted. Books you haven’t read. Songs and albums you have never heard and fell in love with. Words you never even knew existed. Spices you have never smelled. Cities you have never explored and gotten lost in. People you have never met. You are alive. You are still standing. Your heart’s still beating. The sun still shines in the morning. The rain still falls from the sky. The world goes on, despite everything. You have survived through everything you have ever went through, gotten over every hurdle they have placed before you. Don’t give up now.

So stoked to support my good friends at Bold Brew Coffee. Be sure to stop by their table today at the SDSU farmers market!! @boldbrewcoffee

8 Tuesdays down, a million to go @allie_g22 💙

Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed. I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.

🍍

No matter how hard it gets, I hope you find peace even when the world is so full of chaos.

This is life, and it is what it is. Shit is gunna happen. It’s gunna get complicated. We’re gunna relapse. We’re gunna need time-outs. We’re gunna be weak. We’re gunna be strong. We’re gunna lose our shit and yell for people to get out of our lives. We’re gunna break down and beg some people to stay in our lives. Some days we’re gunna feel everything all at once. Other days, we’re gunna feel nothing at all. We’re gunna be in some bad places, we’re gunna be in some amazing ones. We’re gunna get on our knees crying and hurting. And sometimes we’re gunna get on our knees just to say thank you. We’re gunna have moments when we know exactly what we want, and we’re sure. And we’re gunna have moments when we legit have no clue what we want and we’re so confused. This life shit isn’t a movie, and I think sometimes we all forget that.

Happy Tuesday 💙

And so you live like this, day after day, striving and fighting to become, or even better, to be. Something better, something more. Something you can live as, live with. A little more developed, a little more defined and decluttered. But then there’s the people, the world, telling you over and over who you are what you actually like and who you actually want to be, and so that real voice in your head speaks softer every day, until one day you wake up and it’s gone. They killed it, these bastards, with their empty words and useless talk. These people who are acting like stones, walking without bending their knees, without rolling their feet. Talking with empty words and doing tasks without a heart. They broke it. Drowned it. These damn "experts".

Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to class and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking. So I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked, and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realize that that is enough to be happy. There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.

I haven’t been following my instinct, my desires, and my feelings lately. It’s the second week of school and I feel stuck and trapped somewhere I don’t want to be and don’t belong. So here is a picture from a morning I felt free. After spending a night sleeping in the car, I woke up in a thick fog. It was almost metaphoric. When you’re in the fog all you can see is what you have a few feet in front of you. The fog seems endless and appears to be the only thing that can exist, you’re used to it and comfortable in it. That’s your routine. One day you get curious and want to know if there’s something more out there, so you start walking a mile, but the fog is all there is. The next day you walk two miles, but it’s the same thing, fog. After a couple weeks of walking further each day you reach a part where that fog is not so thick anymore and you can see shapes and tones. That’s your awakening. So you keep walking that extra mile everyday, and as you start seeing more colors and shapes through the fog, you experience a range of new emotions you’ve never felt before in your comfortable bubble of fog. That’s your vocation. After weeks of walking every single day out of your comfort zone, little by little, you eventually reach a point where there is no more fog, and everything is so clear and beautiful. There is nothing there to blur your visions or senses. That’s the place where you yourself only exist, and there are hundreds of directions and paths you can take. You just have to follow these new intense feelings you’ve just discovered and they will take you where you truly belong.
