I am Happy

I am happy.

In a totally different way than ever before.

For very different reasons.

In some of the same beautiful ways but more so, in brand new, exciting, mindshattering ways.

And apparently THIS (pictured below) is the face of that happiness. It’s what expression I have instantly made in every photo for quite a while now. When I try to smile with my teeth, which is the norm for me and it looks forced and weird and inauthentic right now. I’m not sure how to explain it but that is obviously not the expression of the type of happiness I’m experiencing right now and I am totally okay with that!

This expression is one of exploration. It is one of adventure. It is one of learning. It is one of deeply experiencing something fucking beautiful with zero idea of how to really put said experiences into words just yet.

This expression is perfect for this phase

A friend of mine posted this quote yesterday and when I was reminded of it I smiled from ear to ear.

I’ve seen this quote before but it couldn’t have reached me at a better time last night.

I was feeling heavy from some conversations that transpired throughout the day.

I had opened my Facebook and started typing several times with the desire to basically tell several people to Fuck off and get out of my space but then I was reminded that anger and hate is not something I chose to contribute to this planet of ours. Continue reading “Instead of Being Angry…”

The Important Things StuckThe important things stuck ❤

 

I look back on the girl I was 10 years ago and yes, there’s a lot of differences in who I am now and who I was then… but the things that really matter, are still there.

 

*My heart is still the same. Yes, it’s tougher. Yes, it’s wiser.. But the basis is still the same. Continue reading “The Important Things Stuck…”

Don't let anyone dim your light

5 years ago I walked away from a life I never thought I’d be in.

This past weekend marks the anniversary of when I finally stood up and said Enough is Enough. Continue reading “Don’t Let Anyone Dim Your Light”

What’s stopping you?

Orville Wright didn’t have a pilot’s license.

That didn’t stop him from making history.
That didn’t stop him from following his dream.
That didn’t stop him from pushing the status quo.
