Day 020/365.

Every time I explore I always look up to remind myself on how tiny I am in comparison to my surroundings. I find it fascinating of the fact that we are made up of nothing but energy and matter. But yet we can be so influential and valuable in the world we live in.
P.s. I took this shot by setting up a self timer on my phone, then placed it flat on the ground lens facing up. It probably took 10 takes to get this. Take 2 was perfect though my crotch almost looked bigger than my head in the pic πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Not IG material, tinder maybe.... #donthavetinder 😎

People often ask me why I want to be a writer. My default answer is that I express myself best through writing. It's a solitary task, one that I can do freely, without immediate judgment. It also allows me to erase and revise as needed - and maybe even delete completely. You can't exactly unsay what you've already said out loud.

Now, if you ask me why I want to be a novelist, my answer would be quite different. It's not because I have legendary worlds wanting to break free of my imagination. It's not even because I feel that I would be the next Jane Austen or JK Rowling. It's much simpler than that.

I want to be a novelist because I love to read. There are stories I want to read but can't, because they only exist in my imagination. So I write, allowing my mind to wander where it wills and my words to shape the realities only I know. And I send stories out into the world in fragments and torrents, hoping that other people might find truth in my version of reality.

Last 2016, my friends and I established nonnegotiagoals - that one thing we each had to accomplish above else. Mine was to backpack Europe alone. This 2017, I want to make another of my dreams come true - that dream I've clung to since childhood.

I'm going to finish a novel. Not just finish writing one - I've done that, and got stuck at the editing stage.Β  I mean to finish a novel that's ready for publication, or at least for submission to agents/publishers.
That's also where this daily writing practice comes in. I hope that these short bursts of texts flex my writing muscles and exercise my fluency of the language.
I still don't know what my story will be exactly, but I'm excited to find out. So stay tuned!

I received this beautiful planner from the awesome @goaldiggerbyadebolaidowu and I am super grateful.

I would probably be featuring it a lot in my book pictures from now on. They are so pretty! πŸ’œπŸ’œ

✨Day Twenty Four of 25 things, I've never done, 25 days leading up to my 25th birthday✨ Today I spent the day at the beach celebrating my birthday with my brother, some cousins and my amazing friends. I usually have themed parties so this was a bit new, but fun nonetheless. Also, my sunburn is real right now.

I never met my Grandfather Gregory P. Kagan, although he survived the war and made it to the US.

Hide and seek on the open road ... 🚲🚲🌴 I love it the colors and different places that my home "Cozumel" offers at any time.

Dios dice que la gloria
esta en el cielo
que es de los mortales

Through the early afternoon noise of the city I found a friendly face...

In many ways, yoga is a practice not of building, but rather uncovering. - @hannahtaha
All the heart openers today. All the backbends. Peeling away superficial layers of the self.

What are you waiting for??..
What are you afraid of?

My practice is not symmetrical. Some days I feel like I could balance for hours on one side, but I couldn't last a second on the other. Some mornings I wake up feeling stiff and immobile, while other days I feel totally free of restriction. This is life. The ups and downs. The ebbs and flows. The peaks and valleys. The practicing and the mastering.
One thing many people are afraid of when they are new to yoga is not being "good enough." Not being flexible enough. Not fitting the criteria of a "yogi." But that's just it. Yoga is for everybody, and every BODY. You begin where you are. And that place is different for everyone, everyday. It's ever evolving.
You learn to accept yourself and spend time in your body, not judging, only observing.
>>> You step out of the ego, onto the mat, and into the soul. <<< That, to me, is yoga. And anyone is capable of doing that ❀️

Shit comes with a price.

I'm willing to sacrifice every peice of me

Cold grass beneath her feet as the wind catches her hair.
The sweet scent of summer in the air. I'd give anything to be a kid again...

Just face it...
