Is the sky really the limit?
…You still surviving out there? Good! I’m so glad you made it.
When you’re the product of a traumatic environment, you sense things differently than most. Personally, I’m going through a journey to find my tribe, Moana style 🐭🌀🙎🏽🐚🌊🌴🏞🌋🎶 I want to be able to express myself artistically and remain true to the childlike free-spirit within me, say what’s on my heart, but for some reason I stay quiet and reserved in most everyday encounters. I’m socially awkward amongst peers, an exotic beast in a shallow bubble called the 😮🌊 OC – Orange County, CA.
Take this fantastic movie for example:
Captain Fantastic, staring Viggo Mortensen. This is a gnarly one from the beginning, it’s got thrills, and tears, and cheers, it is the real deal, you feel?
That, is a family cult I wouldn’t hate joining. Society is getting scarier for our youth everyday. Why not teach them basic survival skills at a young age to ensure a brighter and more successful future? Watch it, and see for yourself. This tight-knit family unit makes me even question my own expensive and broken public educational systems.
Honestly, I believe there should be a time in every part of one’s day for napping/meditation/personal reflection. Maybe people wouldn’t be so moody if they got a little more rest and relaxation? When I was younger I convinced myself to stay awake because of that Aerosmith song, 🎤”I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep, cause I’d miss you babe and I don’t want to miss a thing.” So much fomo…The fear of missing out was so real. That is why I feel like many of us use social media as a means of capturing candid moments in our lives. We “don’t want to miss a thing.”
We have a unyielding psychosis that our lives are the center of the universe. If only we just looked up every once in a while, we’d see we’re not really alone. There is so much buzzing above us that we can’t even see. There is so much beauty around us and we’re practically desensitized by it. Within us, its like Heaven on Earth, but we wouldn’t know it unless the image was blasted on Twitter, reposted on Instagram and tagged with location and a Lo-Fi filter, or whatever. I will say that I believe an album of a person’s reflection is a beautiful form of artwork; I guess another millennial hobby like scrapbooking was to our moms and their moms. We now take on social media to reach out to strangers so we can make our presence known. It’s truly viral.
Thus, I choose to live life happy, healthy, and whole.

Today I am grateful for:
• More rest
• The opportunity to make someone smile
• Protein bars
What are you most afraid of?
For me, self-sabotage is a habit I am constantly trying to break. Missed opportunities and blocking my own blessings has always been a fear of mine.
What would make today great?
If I could gain balance within myself in order to bring balance to the world.
Let my fears flow away
What amazing things happened today?
1. I got a t-shirt made in time to bring to a music festival I’m attending this weekend.
2. I got complimented on my hair by another beautiful woman who said she was going to try blonde soon too.
3. I got the chance to challenge myself by learning a new operating system at work.
How could I have made today even better?
If I could, I would have liked to learn something new about my culture and practice speaking another language.
Embraces past mistakes and make the best of your future.
BONUS: What do I plan on accomplishing tomorrow?
If I could, I would like to complete my fitness model resume for submission to different modeling agencies when I return from my vacation next week.
Catch up with me tomorrow for
