I received an email this morning from a follower struggling with "fitting in to society." She told me that she felt like she didn't belong and that she was the odd one in her group of friends. By odd, she meant that she didn't like the same things they did. I asked her why she felt that she had to perceive her uniqueness as a bad thing. Growing up and even sometimes now, I am almost always the only one of my friends sober. Drinking never was for me. Every now and then, I'm asked to drink or asked why I don't. It doesn't bother me to explain why, because I'm ok with my answer. I think accepting who we are is one of the bravest things we do in a world that teaches us to be like everyone else. We're taught to be ourselves from a young age, yet sadly, those same people are often bullied. If you feel at a crossroads to trying to fit in or be yourself, I beg you to choose your happiness first. There is no greater freedom, happiness and peace that comes with finally being at a place in your life where you're ok with who you are. We all have a past, a present and a future. You are not tied to your past and your present moment doesn't have to be you in the future. My advice? Pay attention to your senses and follow your gut. Listen to the fire that burns inside of you when you're in the midst of doing something you love. Listen to that innocence within you that wasn't afraid of being judged. Be you, do you and stay true to YOU...oh, and let your toes touch the sky. ❤️ #beyourself #loveyourself #journey #therapy #writing

Doubt is such a strong feeling that if we allow it to, it will be take over our souls and drown all our goals. The funny thing is, doubt cannot come in unless we allow it. You see, we don't have to allow anything into our lives unless we want it. Some things, like pain, may be inevitable. But I can't help but think that some times, some people, choose to be in pain. They become victims in their lives, allowing excuses to be their reasoning. You cannot blame someone for their "inability" to treat you better, if you accept what they give. You cannot blame your circumstances, unless you choose to do better. You cannot fail, unless you choose not to try. Remember that time you almost gave up and thought you wouldn't survive? Well, you're still here and you can do it again. Stop waiting to be rescued and be your own damn hero, cause the truth of the matter is that a hero is not measured by his strength, but by the size of his heart. What's your super power? Mine is love.

Rise Higher.

I know everyone says that good things happen when you least expect it, like falling in love. If there's one thing I've learned to do that's made all the difference is finding the good in everything. No matter what has happened in your life, you have the opportunity to change how you'll let it affect you. This takes a lot of practice, sometimes everyday. For me, the greatest challenge was learning to accept an apology I never got. That took a LOT of practice but when I found I wasn't doing ok with just that, I tried something new. I created distance from things, places and people who weren't helping me grow. I know a lot of people weren't happy with me for it, but it wasn't about them. It was and always will be about what's going to make me happy, better and stronger for the future. Sometimes you need to take yourself out of a situation to see things more clearly and let me tell you, the climb of being the bigger person is always rewarding.

No matter what life hands to you, take the classier approach and nothing is more elegant than loving yourself so much that YOUR peace of mind comes first. 

Better people.

If there is one thing we can always be, it is better. 

Throw caution to the wind.

If granted the opportunity, would you want to know what the future holds for you? Who you will be, what you will become? Who will stay, who will leave, and who will come? Would you want to know? I think one of the greatest reasons why we repeat mistakes is because we're afraid to try new things, wander away from what we know. But what if everything you've ever wanted was just on the other side of fear?

A comfort zone is a beautiful place, my dear, but nothing ever grows from there. Throw caution to the wind & explore new paths.

A few years ago when I began to go to therapy to discover who I am, I realized how similar relationships are to trees. A strong tree that withstands all weather conditions and remains for years to come, probably had a strong foundation. I always wonder about the other trees, the ones that didn't. The ones that didn't start with nurturing and love, yet still grew to be beautiful sights to see. My favorite, though, is the tree that has risen above everything around that's tried to keep it down. It's surpassed the weather conditions and even times of drought. That tree, though it's start may have been amazing and eventually diminished or it was rocky all along, came out stronger, better because of it. It makes you realize that no matter what happens around us, doesn't have to be what happens to us. It's all about perspective and how we look at the things that occur in our lives. I choose to believe that everything that happens is good, whether I like it or not. I know at the end of the day, it's all part of the journey. No bad days. #gratefulheart

Enjoy the path.

When a woman is single, most people assume she is loanely. Most people assume that she needs to find a boyfriend. I think that's where the problem begins. There's a beautiful journey that can only take place when one is single. In that journey, one will usually find their strengths, hobbies and even what they don't like. They'll find themselves, if they learn to enjoy the space that's with them. Some don't. Some never do, because that space feels more like an empty void that needs to be filled. I've found that its easy to fill that void, but not always with good. It can be easily filled to make you not feel alone with toxic behavior such as drinking, smoking, sex or even food. The problem is that the substance lacks depth and once it leaves you, you feel empty again. This is why I've found it's important to be content alone, before a relationship. Nothing is guaranteed in life and we may lose people. To know what you're worthy of, alone, lasts you a lifetime. Enjoy the ride and trust the journey. Also, don't m assume that just because a woman is sitting alone, she is waiting for you. My advice for the women who are seeking a partner, go out and enjoy the solitude. If you allow time and space to let him find you, you'll meet on the right path, at the right time. For now, enjoy your independence.

This past weekend my best friend and I spontaneously explored several trails in L.A. Knowing me, I try to learn something new about myself, others or my surrounding when doing something. It's just how I've always been. Today, I realized how powerful our minds can be. We can literally trick ourselves into doing things or to not do things...simply by listening to our minds. Whether it is a diet, telling ourselves we're worthy of more than how someone is treating us, or conquering a mountain (literally), we can do whatever we set our minds to. Know you're worthy of receiving whatever you desire then set your mind to achieve it. Believe in yourself and you're half way there. Then there is truly no room for failure. You're worth it.
