I truly believe that there is some level of good in everyone. Unfortunately, like you just read, we shouldn't have to dig too deep to see it shine through. How you treat people, every interaction, is a reflection of their value in your life. If you are cruel, or if you leave people feeling negatively about themselves..Reevaluate your behavior. We are here to uplift the people with who our paths cross. There is NO justifiable reason to bring people down. Your daily interaction with people matters. The energy you leave them with matters. Your words matter. You never know the internal battles someone is fighting. The ugly truth is that death could be right on their doorstep. So use the right words today. Let your light shine through, and try to feed the good inside of you.

Nothing is impossible, impossible does not exist. Impossible is a lie created by people who simply decided not to make it happen for themselves. .
My leg is blurry because I shake when taking selfies. 😒 just just focus on the words above...

With growth and maturity, we won't be so quick to react to the things that upset us. And with inner peace, the things that would have upset us in the past, don't phase us now. It's with a smart/level headed approach that we are truly heard. If you come out guns blazing, the tone is hostile. Period. Your point can easily be overlooked. But open ears are the first to be heard. Again, open ears are the first to be heard.
If this doesn't make any sense to you. Open your ears. Otherwise you will find yourself being misunderstood, the entire point of your frustrations will be drowned out by the high level of negative energy. THAT is only human nature.
On my end, it's all love. I am love walking. I am patience. I am peace. And the more I tell myself that, the less reactive I am.

Why long for a colorblind man who is incapable of seeing the rainbow that glows within the cage of your chest. Protect what is in that chest, my god, protect your glow so that you may shine on. Allow no one to dim that light. The sting of rejection is nothing compared to the pain of a dragged out heart break. So take that sting, swallow it, and move forward taking everything that you offer off of that table. Don't sit to eat with a man who has reserved multiple other tables with other women. Women who may be great, but oh they are not YOU. Respect yourself enough to accept your reality, and move on. Absolutely no love lost for him. And only more love for you. Do this. And you will find a peace, relief, that is so beautiful. That nothing can touch you.

Our 20s. We are all just fumbling around with all of these adult toys, these adult feelings, these adult responsibilities...And we're doing our best to work with what little we've got. So hold onto what and who you DO have. Understand that you're not supposed to have it all together. You're going to mess up. You'll be broke on and off for a while. Mistakes will be made, hearts will break, your credit score may plummet, and failure might seem to become your best friend. But get up and try again. Realize that money is only a tool for you to reach your dreams. And realize that those dreams of yours, can be your life.

Some consider a successful day to be going the extra mile, reaching a new, untouched level. But for some, a successful day is simply achieving the bare minimum. Taking it back to the basics. There are days where I feel as good as I emotionally can, and I got there by simply eating a meal and brushing my teeth. Washing my hair. Talking to my family. So look...Whatever your successful day looks like, I hope you all have one.

It's so peculiar how the vastness of the Earth I place my two feet on can make me feel so grounded. But in moments like these my soul is soaring above these 6,000 year old trees. Where I land next? God only knows.

Monday June 26, 2017 / 12:18pm... There's no such thing as a life that's better than yours.
So, fill your life with moments that take your breath away. Fill your life with people who breathe life INTO you. Fill it with music that lights your soul on fire. Travel. Write. Laugh. Spread love. And be kind to one another.

Pool Day..

Tuesday June 20, 2017 / 4:17... Yesterday I saw Earth in a form that my eyes have never witnessed. It caused me to put things into perspective. Everything around me is so silently busy, ever changing. The world is growing, the clay beneath our feet is constantly feeling the pressure of these changes and just like us it is being molded into something beautiful. If you would have asked me a few days ago how I was doing, I probably would have said that myself and my life are falling apart. But now I think that perhaps, my life is only falling into place. And the journey is just slow and extremely uncomfortable at times haha.
