Welcome! You made it. I’m so glad because there is something important I need to tell you…
Yo check this:
I had to repost some knowledge from my girl @i.am.moonlyt because I’m over here like, smh…🤦♀️ “If this ain’t me!”
Here’s a real story:
As a kid, I remember my ears being sensitive to loud noises from the crashing sound of waves, to fireworks, and even movie theater sounds. I would just cry because the noises hurt my ears so much. Later on I found out when my mom was pregnant with me, she watched Michael Jackson’s Captain EO show at Disneyland. She told me she should not have been in there as the music was too loud for her. Of course, who would have known back in those days without any research or consideration. Way to go old school safety regulations. Cigarettes are still bad for us, right? What do I know? 🚭 Fast forward many years later, find me blasting music all loud in my car and singing at the top of my lungs. I give no F’s.
REVIEW: There’s this excellent New Zealand film called Hunt for the Wilderpeople starring that main G from Jurassic Park, Sam Neil, and this other beautiful soul named Julian Dennison. Basically this rough neck kid says, “I didn’t choose the scuzz life, the scuzz life chose me!” I feel the same way lil’ homie. My life tends to be a little on the ridiculous side, but I still can’t complain. Why should I? We live in paradise. The sooner you can embrace what makes you unique, the better you’ll feel about yourself.
Thus, if people say I’m acting weird. I say, perfect. I’ll go be weird over here and I’ll catch ya on the flip side. Whatever you do, just do you. While you’re at it, make sure you spread love and stay positive. Like Peter Pan did to try to fly, think happy thoughts.
Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.
This was me a year ago. My hair might have changed but I feel the same way. Our minds are beautiful creations and the fact that we spend the majority of our time and energy worrying about so many things we cannot control is heart-breaking. The wild thing is, we can control how we feel. Allow me to repeat myself, we can control how we feel! We have the power to decide the way we want to feel. Yo! You can “rewire” your brain to be happy by simply recalling 3 things you’re grateful for every day for 21 days. Try it. We choose whether we want to set ourselves straight like a thermostat rather than a thermometer. Don’t let the climate determine your mood. For me, the choice is clear. Around this time last year, my decision was to stay wild.
Today, I feel like I can finally say I’m vibing with a decent tribe. My circle of friends consist of creatives in my community who have good hearts and love to spread in abundance. I’m learning so much from my little squad everyday. Most importantly, I’m getting time to myself so I can focus on my goals and the person I want to become. Though I am constantly attempting to push healthier habits into my daily routine, a good friend of mine reminded me that life is a freestyle event. We’re athletes, and in this sport, whatever happens will work itself out eventually. I should just take things each moment at a time and focus on being mindful on a more consistent basis.
We always should appreciate where we are in life, but strive for health, happiness and betterment. My soul will be overflowing with love to give and to receive, and my community will be improved because of it. Mark my words. This time next year, I see myself settled into a house I call my own taking selfies on my comfortable California king bed with my little family and my six figure income. For real though, who knows where I’ll be at next year but one can dream. Why not dream big? I’m not saying fur babies are out of the question either, I’m still hoping for a puppy Christmas present one day 🤞🏽
Closing quote for the year:
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
Life is funny. Make sure to laugh about it every once in a while. Happy new year fam! See ya on the other side wild ones.
#staywild #wildones🐾 #followwildthing
Today I am grateful for:
• More honesty, especially about how I feel
• The sound of laughter
• Kindness from strangers
What is separate and different to me?
Empathy is one of those things that I struggle with in terms of equality and rights. I can certainly sympathize, but to have empathy for those who cannot see a person that may look like me as another human being isn’t as receptive. I’m not about to get into a religious or political debate, just know that there are two sides to every story. You can’t seem to win everyone over, but you can still at least try to choose your attitude. Fear and hate don’t win in this game called life. Choose love always 💚
What would make today great?
If I could travel beyond the fear-mentality that I have created for myself and have an overflowing cup of self love in order to spill love to those I come in contact with.
Release all illusions within myself that I am not living the life I desire. Be the change I want to see in the world.
What amazing things happened today?
1. I participated in a book exchange.
2. I was able to hear from an old friend.
3. I began planning my meal prep for January.
How could I have made today even better?
If I could, I would have liked to spend more time creating new memories and traditions with my family during the holidays, but just being able to see them at all is everything to me.
- I am passionate, powerful, and productive.
- I am guided by my inner wisdom.
- I am connected with my highest truth.
- I am at all times safe, loved, guided and protected.
BONUS: What do I plan on accomplishing tomorrow?
Creating a vision board to set my intentions for the new year, manifest my goals, and set myself and my family up for success in the future.
2019, she ready!
