Cacti party ๐ŸŒต In other related news, does one get a candle shaped like a cactus or a watermelon?

We are told more often than not to not be so sensitive.
.
Encouraged not to be so sentimental.
.
That vulnerability is dangerous, and that we should hold those parts of ourselves back for fear of what might happen when we share those gifts with those who are not prepared to receive them.
.
Iโ€™ve burned with the best of them, but failure is but a lesson, and nothing worth having comes without risk. Ultimately, I know that the most beautiful people and parts of my life now did not come without the growth that came with those lessons. .
.
With vulnerability comes authenticity, and that quiet determination that people can be good and life can be beautiful โ€” that belief, I think, that your greatest asset.
.
โœญ Iโ€™m curious about what peopleโ€™s experiences have been. Would love to hear about them ๐Ÿ’— โœญ

One of my favourite quotes on being authentic to โ€œfeelingโ€ Iโ€™ve seen floating around IG about to date:
.
โœช โ€œThe people for me are the messy hearted, the unapologetic, โ€œthe true to themselves even when no one is watchingโ€ kind of people.
.
โœช The people for me have hearts larger than their bodies, they have minds larger than their boundaries and circumstance.
.
โœช See, the people for me are the ones who find light between the cracks of hurt and hope - they are the fighters, the optimists, the people mad enough to believe that being different is actually their biggest asset.
.
โœช The people for me are the expressionists, the feelers, the women and the men who are I afraid of living by their own rules, the human beings who demand more from themselves, the soft souls who never quiet their flame; the ones who only encourage themselves to burn, burn, burn.โ€ - @rainbowsalt

Polka dots & horchata. Fred the pineapple was very grateful not to be turned into a pina colada, but alas, we learnt the hard way that pineapples canโ€™t sit on swings. ๐Ÿ

โœญ โ€œThe very act of saying yes is not just life-changing, it is life-saving.โ€ - Shonda Rhimes (Year Of Yes) ๐Ÿ’›โœจ
.
Adversity has a way of changing us, wearing us down, eroding our conviction until unintentionally we play smaller. For those of us living a creative life, it encourages us to forget our why until we compromise our artistic integrity in service of what is easy or sensible. Yet adversity is with us all the time - it is the basis of and is ultimately intertwined with success and true courage.
.
At the beginning of 2018, as an antidote to complacency and fear, to harness uncertainty into spontaneity and action, I committed this year to saying yes - in an intentional pursuit of new experiences to open my mind and heart.
.
Here we are, almost halfway through 2018. From what Iโ€™ve learned about myself on retreat in Mexico, to this moment above (where Iโ€™m clearly remembering that I ran out of avocados ๐Ÿ˜…), saying yes has, without a doubt, made a difference.
.
To anyone who reads this, I encourage you to try saying yes - to opportunities and journeys where you might even feel the slightest bit of affinity to (whether it is a never-have-I-ever, whether is scares you, or represents something you donโ€™t immediately see the value of).
.
Even if it includes the risk of falling flat on your face...or driving 2 hours out of town to crash a birthday party with a friend you hadnโ€™t seen for over a year and some strangers. If it calls to any part of you, say yes. Maybe youโ€™ll be inspired, realise a skill you never knew you had, find a new direction, or simply have the time of your life. Plus you never know who you might meet. Try it :)

Disclaimer: I will never say yes to sky diving. ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ“ท: @hhhuynh

โ€œAnd into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.โ€ -Unknown .

One of my favourite hikes so far in SoCal is โœญ Eaton Canyon โœญ - hundreds of butterflies swirling and twirling in the afternoon light and at the at the end of the trail, a sparkling waterfall oasis. .
