Soul on fire.

Posted on January 18, 2017 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)


"You should really give a fuck. You really should.

But only about things that set your soul on fire. Save your fucks for magical shit." 

Life's a little too short to lose sleep on the insignificant matters in life. Whenever I find myself caring a little too much about things out of my control, I remember that all I can do is make sure I'm a good person (in my eyes). Show up, be present and give it all you've got. You can't make everyone happy and not everyone's drama is worthy of your time. Choose wisely. There are people out there with way more serious problems to be allowing small matters that won't matter a year from now to stop you from reaching your greatest potential. Keep doing you, babe. It was never about you anyway. #prayforthem #iprayforyou #lifequotes

Taking Chances.

Posted on January 18, 2017 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Throughout high school and college, I suffered from severe anxiety attacks when it came to #publicspeaking. I avoided it at all cost, even dropping out of classes to avoid my fears. I even had my therapist write a letter to my professors so that I could avoid them. (Extreme, I know) Nonetheless, I'm still working extremely hard to overcome my fear. I think that with anything in life, the more you avoid things..the more challenging they become. I think it goes the same for love. No matter how hurt you've been, you can't avoid love. The more you avoid it, the more difficult it becomes when you're confronted with the opportunity. For the longest time, when I'd date, I was like a wall. Guys would talk to me and I'd stare back with hardly any emotion. Truth is, I built a wall to guard and protect myself. Problem is that it did nothing for me, other than hinder me from possibly meeting a great person and even avoiding growth. I think that in life, you can't avoid the inevitable. You've got to put yourself out there and try more, because at the end of the day... what's going to happen, will. Showing up is the most difficult part, but you have to. #effort #growth

Growth 10x

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I've found that growth is uniquely defined person to person. For some, it's growth financially and for others it is happiness. As a 27 year old, I've found that twenties are a lot of soul-searching, path taking and most of all, about choices. Every single choice we make has some sort of effect on us- whether we'd like to admit it, there's consequences, good and bad for each. I spent a majority of my early twenties tied to one focus. That effected my ability to grow into any other aspect because is all I cared about. In my mid-twenties, I focused a lot on healing, reflecting on my past, my youth and finding me. That journey has probably been the most gratifying since and also, the most painful. I shed a lot of tears, lost a lot of people and also grew as a person- individually. I basically shed a layer of skin and grew stronger and can say I'm 150% a different person. That's crazy! Today, I'm 27 and still learning, growing and hoping to evolve. I'm much more aware of who I am than I did at 25. Two years alone made a difference. I'm so happy with all the paths, choices and routes so far. They weren't always fun in the moments and didn't always make sense, but thank the gods that I had the faith to see something bigger than just that day. You're worth so much than what you're currently dealing with and I believe you're capable and will do more. So, trust me when I say that you do not have to succumb to growth. Yes, it's painful. Yes, it's challenging. Yes, you'll lose, overcome, feel, gravitate and long for- but I promise you'll also learn to let go, stand tall on your own, rely on no one for your happiness and smile. My greatest accomplishment today has been the ability to sit in my own thoughts. I know so many people who cannot and it's ok, their time will come too. There is no greater day than that which you realize you're amazingly powerful.

Flower Crowns

Posted on January 10, 2017 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)
When I was younger, I used to pick flowers at the park and make flower crowns with my cousin. We were just little girls with greater dreams than we could imagine. Sometimes we'd pick #dandelions and make wishes in hopes they'd come true. It's funny to me, now, that sometimes the things we wish and hope are merely fantasies that we've fooled ourselves to believing are dream worthy. As an adult, I realize that many of the things I once hoped for in a partner have changed. The idea of having a knight in shining armor sounds appealing, until you realize masculinity is not always defined in looks. It's in character- how one carries themselves, responds in times of hardships and most of all, above everything- how they ALWAYS treat you, despite what mood they're in. I see guys act out from anger and to me, it's the greatest sign of weakness. Seeing a boy hit, shout or belittle a woman is the greatest indication to me that he's not a man. Personally, no matter how much people "change," I can't forget what they've done. Call me unforgiving, but I choose to see that of all the flowers we can pick, why pick one that's going to leave us feeling rotten. You can only grow and become better with those who you surround in your garden, darling. No need to have relationships that will hinder your ability to reach the sunshine and grow.

Light at the end of the tunnel coming through

Posted on January 10, 2017 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

In life, we aren't always given the answer, reasoning or evidence to what will eventually make sense. One of the greatest challenges I've overcome in the past few years is learning to trust what happens is not against me and nothing is happening TO me. Everything that occurs in my life or around me is destined to help me become a better, greater me. Nothing nor no one can ever take away my ability to smile or be happy. This sort of decision is only one you can make within yourself when you decide that your life is your own and who comes in and out of it, were never meant to be with you. Learn to accept that people come and go, by choice or not. Learn that events will come and some never again. Learn to be still within the moments of good and bad, because one day you'll want to look back on them to see that things were better or worse. Growth is realizing you've overcome and will overcome whatever is handed your way. You can't always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but having the faith within to know that it will eventually be found is what kept me going for many years. When it is finally found, made clear or even realized...that full-circle moment will be worth all the confusion. Keep your head up, darling. You're worth it. #lightattheendofthetunnel

Searching.

Posted on December 4, 2016 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

"I am still searching for someone who is not searching for someone else."


Someone who is happy alone is someone who's happy together . Someone who would miss you, dearly, but isn't tied to you because of their inability to be alone is who is worth seeking. Someone who's with you because they adore you, not need you. Someone's who content without you, but life with you is so much sweeter. Don't find the person who says they can't live without you. Find the one who says life is worth living...with you

Ourselves.

"And in the end...we chose ourselves.. and that's how it is supposed to be."


I think sometimes it's conflicting to realize that we come first. This occurs when we fear leaving our comfort zone and opt to stay in situations thatfeel safe. The problem is that when we do this, we don't allow ourselves to become better or ever grow. We play it safe. Well, darling, that's no excuse to stay. Don't let the uncomfortableness of feeling lonely influence you to stay where you're unappreciated. I'd rather you stay single or feel lonely at times than to stay where someone does not value you. To be valued is not a matter of when someone wants to treasure you. With the right person, you'll never doubt your worth. Choose that. Choose YOU.

For you.

"What's for you, will not pass you."

I genuinly believe in fate. I believe in having faith in fate. Trust the journey, the process, the timing of your life. It always comes full circle. 

Choices

"YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO TELL IF YOU'RE MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION UNTIL THE RIGHT MOMENT COMES AND JUST AFFIRMS IT."

If I'm being completely honest, I don't cry much. I'm an emotional mess with a chick flick, but it's been a while.

Today, I cried. It was a good cry. It was a cry from the heart. A cry with so much wonder, excitement, nerves, thoughts, appreciation, fear and guilt. I called my friend to cry to her and she questioned it, which helped me feel calmer. When we are beginning new things, whether relationships, a new home or even commitment- it's easy to feel a need to stay close to whatever makes us feel comfortable. This sometimes leads to us back in the arms of our past or stepping backwards. We are not here to settle or to stay little so others will not feel intimidated by our growth. We've only got one shot at this thing called life and I think we owe it to ourselves to give it all we've got. Some chapters hurt to close, but if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be able to move to the next.

Every master was once a beginner.

Everyone "starts" somewhere and remember that no one is you, and THAT is your power. Stay humble as ever, but know your value and what you bring to the table... in work, life and your relationships. Always improve yourself, continue learning and never settle for mediocre. "The dream is free, the hustle is sold separately." Happy Thursday.
