& 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
They say you’re only as strong as your team, so I definitely make it a point to keep a strong one around me. I get bored with redundancy, and above anything else I have a constant urge to learn new things, and be pushed outside of my comfort zone. These guys definitely KICK my ass and keep it fun and interesting. Thanks for making me better. You are appreciated.
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.
If you get, give. Super thankful to be able to bring tons of clothes to the shelter this morning. I’ve brought lots of my own things in the past, but obviously I don’t wear men’s clothing, and it sucks to see people get left out, so this time everything pictured I was able to collect just off word of mouth and ASKING people if they had any throw aways. Sometimes that’s all it takes-asking or mentioning. (more…)
