Relationships & Life
Life begins when you allow it. I have felt like I am going backwards in so many instances it is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous!!! Sadly, I allowed my circumstances to define who I am as a person, when in actuality I am my soul. My soul yearns for something so much greater than what can be seen. This life attracts the unexpected but you must open yourself to sometimes unplanned opportunities-these are the doors for something greater...trust me.
I am no longer going backwards. I am continuing to move forward. You should too, happily :)
Oh yes, I LOVE this movie. I watched it again today and began to ponder about my own life and my dreams. How funny is it to think I can relate my life to a Disney movie? All in all age is nothing but a number, right? I think the message in the film is quite compelling, no matter your age. The thing is we each should follow our dreams no matter the trials and tribulations it is necessary for each of us to continue to push through. In striving towards becoming better and succeeding in fulfilling your dreams remembering what is really important will propel you further. I feel like the song Tiana sang, "Almost There." Geez louise I am almost there...
Love you all!!!!!
I know it has been awhile since my last post. I have been extremely busy AGAIN!! I'm not sure if everyone else knows, but seriously when life happens...it happens all at once. This is exactly what I am dealing with at this moment. I am totally grateful. I will give my updates on lifes happenings very soon.
Depression can set in at the oddest of moments. I know how it feels to be depressed. To feel like everything you have ever worked for has been in vain. To feel alone. To feel like no one truly cares. No one understands who you are and what you are going through. To be completely honest, when you are in a depressive state there is nothing anyone can say to you to get you out of your funk. It is something you have to deal with. I think sadness, confusion and being unhappy is the best time for growth. It is the universe saying something directly to you. The challenge is filtering through your thoughts and having the capacitiy to remember...you have to remove all the negative that the world can be and just be still...
Lets all be honest, there are so many things in this world that can kills us unexpectedly so why not play an active role in saving our lives as well as someone elses. Choose everday...make a conscious decision to be better in every moment...the reality is when we each choose wisely we have an impact on the world beyond our wildest imaginations. I'm with Oprah in this NO PHONE ZONE PLEDGE. I have chosen to no longer text while I am driving- I know for sure my life is worth saving and I definitely do not want to be the cause of someone else losing theirs. Lets make a change TOGETHER
I'm sorry guys. I know I have been away for awhile or at least it seems that way, but IM BACK!! I have to think, what is it that I can write about that would have any excitement to it? I saw Brooklyn's Finest yesterday, it was a great movie. A little violent, but not too bad. I am watching the Oscars now...hoping...who do you guys think will win?
Today was an insightful day. I had some very interesting and real things told to me about my future. My goal in every moment I live is to be a better person, grow more, and remember what I am here for. It is not always as simple as I would like it to be, but the fact is this is how we all should be. Remain positive...
