“Don’t overestimate yourself, but never UNDERESTIMATE the person you COULD be. Form a noble vision of who you could be and strive to be it. Develop some discipline. Learn to read. Learn to write. Learn to speak. Learn to think, and man... You’ll be deadly.” @jordan.b.peterson is my hero! This quote was taken from his recent trip to Dallas for the TPUSA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit. Check it out on YouTube. •

Yesterday was a blur! After a hellacious Sunday, I managed to knock out an interview, run straight to a fashion shoot, then off to Ventura to film my first Bachata Music Video! Needless to say after a 16 hour day, I am beat and craving @innout, but yesterday was well worth it! I can’t wait to show you what my new VERY TALENTED friends come up with! This is a behind the scenes shot from scene one of the Bachata video! ☺️ Off to another shoot as we speak!

“I can see by your eyes you must be lying, and you think that I don't have a clue.
Well baby you're crazy if you think that you can fool me.
Because I've seen that movie too.
So keep your auditions for somebody, who hasn't got so much to lose.
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting, that I've seen that movie too.”

Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me. Cause I want ya, and I need ya. And I’m down for you always.

As my 29th birthday draws closer and closer, I’ve had some heavy things on my mind. As a lot of you know, I moved to LA over a year ago to continue my career in the film industry. While I’ve had some success in some areas, I’ve found that it’s not as fulfilling as I once thought it would be, and my passion for the industry is dwindling. There has been a tugging at my heart to go in a different direction for quite some time. As most kids do, I went to college after high school, but at 21 years old I had a successful business running and didn’t feel the need to continue my education further than what I had already attained. The prospect of going back to school has been a daunting one, because the idea of spending several years re-education myself at this stage in my life, struck me as being a failure. My plans didn’t work out. My idea of what my life was going to be, didn’t come to fruition. The reality of my situation (and yours as well), is that regardless of what we’re doing, time is going to pass. It doesn’t matter how bad we feel about ourselves, how much time, talent, and energy we think we’ve wasted - the time is going to pass just the same. We hold ourselves back in so many ways, but the majority of these impediments come from our own minds and our pride. Well, at basically 29, I started school again TODAY for Psychology. Going back to school is INDEED going to be an investment of my time and resources, but I also know that it’s going to be worth it. Somewhere on the planet, my first patient is waiting for me, and the thought of that makes it all worthwhile. I had to put my insecurities and pride away because without investing in myself, my future, and my education I will be of no service to that person waiting for me. Believe in yourself! Go for broke! Throw everything you’ve got in to whatever you’re pursuing and ignore the fears - otherwise you really ARE just wasting your time. •

In 1776, a thirty three year old named Thomas Jefferson wrote a document in seventeen days called The Deceleration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Writing this document was an act of treason against not only the worlds largest superpower at the time, but the worlds largest army. Signing this document was basically signing your death warrant, and yet 56 men found it worth their lives to declare independence from a tyrant named King George III. The Founders built a regime different than any other regime known to ancient thinkers and we are the beneficiaries of a long, rich, undeniably divine history. We definitely have our faults and the reality is that our government is constituted of broken, limited, and immoral people, just like you and I - but our founding documents set us apart and are worth investigating, learning about, and protecting. America is a set of eternal principals and values that outlive any president, judge, or cabinet member. As Americans, we believe the government cannot and must not exercise any authority over us except by our consent. We believe the purpose of our government is to protect our private rights, the rights to our property, to our conscience, to our liberty to speak and to worship as we please. No matter which side of the political party you stand on, no matter how frustrated you are with the political climate we find ourselves in, I hope that we can take a moment today to think about how blessed we are to be the recipients of what our Founders built and what 1.1 million people to date have given their “last full measure of devotion” to protect. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY - my favorite holiday!

A couple of things:
1. This is my first car selfie on Instagram! Am I official yet?
2. I’ve recently been thinking about getting bangs... to cover my big ole forehead. Thoughts?
3. @boxycharm rocks my world! Every month they send you four to five full size prestige products and this month has been my favorite to date! I received a BEAUTIFUL eyeshadow pallet from @alamarcosmetics with eight full sized shadows, a waterproof eyeliner, three brushes, a liquid lipstick from my favorite brand @ofracosmetics, lotion and some eyelashes. DM me if you’d like me to send you an invite to get signed up. I HIGHLY HIGHHHHLY suggest it! •

“Life is a strange thing, isn’t it? Show me someone who has brilliance boiling beneath the surface and I’ll show you someone who has wanted to die at times. The people who seem to have life tied together nicely with a bow on top, those people, they have a terrible story to tell that you might not have the stomach for. I have been brought down to my knees and it STILL keeps me up at night. I pray that I never feel that degree of pain again. And yet, at the same time, it made me everything that I am. It seems that motivation always follows devastation for me. Life will wear you down, dress it up and tell yourself what you want to hear, I guess. Sometimes to become more, there has to be nothing left.” •
