Melissa Cheing  Some gymnastics ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ some yoga ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ some thoughts ๐Ÿ’ฌ and a furry baby ๐Ÿถ all mostly in NYC ๐Ÿ—ฝ

there is a new fire burning
it will last long
it will burn hard
and shine truth
lighting up your way
.
I was never lost
I was always me
I have so many faces
I wear so many hats
I am many colors
.
it's time to stop apologizing
it's time to step up
it's time for a new chapter
it is time to grow
it's time to shine
.
I feel taller
I have more to give
I am lighter
my arms are wider
to hold me and you
.
the fast beat of my heart
when I think of you
does not bother me anymore
it is my heart
getting stronger
.
I just got sick of my bullshit
I want to show you
how I stand on my own
despite the pain
I can handle my pain and yours
.
it is behind me now
it doesn't steer the wheel
I cannot depend on you
I am made to be strong
on my own
.
come with me
those dark clouds
no longer serve us
the sun is out
waiting for us to play
.
my heart is in the same place
my love has not changed
my eyes look at you
like when we first met
excitement is still there
.
my face looks different
when I see myself
I see a smarter stare
with bigger eyes
a calm humble smile
.
my intensity will remain
instead of coming from pain
it will come from my heart
I will love you
I will be there for you
as long as I am able to
.

Back to regular programming
I made a promise that I will keep
Seat back and enjoy
.
It was not a waste of time
It was not a waste of tears
It was just a big fall
It is over now
.
Keep moving
Chase the sun
Relax and enjoy the stars
This is all for you my love โ™ฅ๏ธ

Today Iโ€™m happy
Today Iโ€™m the person Iโ€™d like to be every day
This does not happen often
But when it does
I feel my heart is bigger
I feel I can do anything
I feel I can love fully
Just arrived from a long overnight flight
Iโ€™m tired, did not sleep well and my body hurts
Havenโ€™t exercised in days!!!
But my mind is beyond that
Pain is secondary
Everything looks beautiful
People seem friendly
Iโ€™m ready to keep going
Grateful
Optimistic
Hopeful
How to you feel today?

Working on my flag. New trick learned at @transformgst Always monkeying around where I go and most importantly, embarrassing @jhn ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑโ˜บ๏ธ #gymnastics #gymnasticsstrengthtraining #yoga #yogagirl #latergram

You are this shiny object
Drawing my attention
When you look at me
I just wonder
Outside of this world
.
And I go
Floating
Letting go
To another dimension
A parallel world
.
Where trees donโ€™t have roots
And clouds are below us
Where waves keep crashing
In the moonlight
And flowers never stop dancing
in the sunlight
.
A space where
Dreams are real
And hearts feel whole
A space where
Only you and I belong
.
Every day I drift away
As you walk into my path
I start to forget
How it was
When life
Had us apart
.
You sing into the sky
Scream into the dark
Have we always been
Together
After all these years have passed
.
I always wondered
If this was all there is
Before you
Before me
Who was that
In my skin
.

โ€œ...-Most of the good things in our life will come from discomfort ... if you find something you love you must be open to pain. Thatโ€™s what love is.โ€
Just read this article by Ayodeji Awosika called How To Decide What To Do With Your Life. This struck a cord.
Our generation gets overwhelmed with options and the idea that we can do anything we want in life. It didnโ€™t use to be this way.
Itโ€™s counterintuitive to think we are less happy because we have this burden to chose our own paths and so we expect unicorns and rainbows when we โ€œget what we wantedโ€ because we thought this was it. But it is never โ€œitโ€, we will always want more or something different.
Ayodeji says we should keep moving and evolving. Because we might not want the same things 5 years from now and we shouldnโ€™t because that would be a sign that we havenโ€™t changed.
We should stay curious and take steps towards our interests may that be writing, painting, coding, volunteering. Basically take action and face fears. Sounds exactly the opposite of staying where you are and just bitching about it, right? And part of my own โ€œunhappinessโ€ is because Iโ€™ve done just that. Stayed stagnant. Paralyzed by fear. Looking forward to changing this soon โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

Doing some Chilean ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑstuff and sharing new adventures with these awesome people ๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŒŒ Never realized how many stars you could see with the naked eye just by removing the hustle of the cities, there is this dense light fogging our view to this world. Space is infinite and far and amazing. The stars are always there watching and dancing for us even when we donโ€™t see them. Trust they are always there shining, shamelessly. Donโ€™t be jealous of the stars, you too are allowed to shine like them for everyone to see. #stargazing #piscoelqui #valleelqui #longexposure #milkyway
