Me and my Honey bear took the time to make some care packs to pass out around the homeless shelter. What a lot of people don’t know is that every homeless person isn’t allowed in a homeless shelter, and also just because people donate to the shelters on a daily basis, they rarely make it to the hands of the ones who need it most. This particular shelter takes in donations, sorts them and distributes vouchers that allows you to get 2 articles of clothing and 1 hygienic product for example. Anytime I bring ANYTHING, I pass it out MYSELF.
I’m extremely blessed to have such amazing and giving people around me. Without the help of others I would not be able to help others at this capacity, and for that, I am forever thankful.

I’ve heard before that you’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down. I second that notion. I raise the bet by saying that a rainbow is and means different things to different people. Is there really a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow? That’s up for interpretation and all about perspective. I believe there is. Rainbows are in fact, by definition a phenomenon.
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” -Maya Angelou
“Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” -Lyman Frank Baum
& never forget that. Whether you’ve prayed, meditated, subconsciously or consciously and deliberately manifested it, what you are experiencing—-living, is a representation of where you’ve been and a glimpse as to where you are going. The beautiful thing about the present is that it will soon be a memory. Good or bad. Cherish, learn from, and appreciate the moment. Continue to move forward. Continue to believe. Continue to fight for your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. Your wants will fall into place shortly after. And never stop…creating. <3
Negative energy is toxic. Mentally, physically, spiritually, and most importantly emotionally. Lately I have been taking more aggressive measures in removing, replacing, and protecting myself from it. Including but not limited to stepping back from non advantageous relationships that have the potential to be energetically draining. Filtering out the negative in turn invites and allows the flow of the positive. Aside from watching the company you keep, be aware of what you invest your energy and emotions into. Instead of letting trivial things escalade into serious issues, attack the iceberg one small chip at a time, as an artist carving a sculpture out of a huge block of material. Sometimes we as people allow things we have no control over to overwhelm us. Do what you can, and let the rest go. (more…)
The funny thing about setting a goal is if you chip away at it enough-little by little, you’re bound to overcome it. Motivation becomes dedication, then evolves into discipline, and that’s when the magic happens. I’m a big believer in documenting progress. Most of the time you don’t realize how far you’ve come until you look back. There’s a quote I like that basically says never look back unless it’s to see how far you’ve come. I kinda like it. In lamest terms, you are your own worst enemy. You are your biggest competitor. You are the only person that can hold you back from becoming better than you were yesterday. Don’t cheat yourself.
