Kindness is sexy.
Kindness is attractive
Kindness is contagious.
Kindness is beautiful.
Today I feel at peace. With my past. With my future.
I am in love with the present moment.
The sun. The wind. The trees and the birds. I am overwhelmed by the beauty all around me.
I am grateful for everyone who has come and gone. You have all taught me beautiful lessons.
I have learned to love and to let go. To give and receive. I’ve learned to be vulnerable.
Some days fear and sadness comes washes over me like an enormous wave. But I’ve learned to appreciate the darkness. To accept it.
To overcome my fear. To choose happiness.
A new year.
An ending and a beginning.
This should mean more to me than it does I suppose. I guess it’s a reason, an excuse, to start over, to try harder. To reflect. To let go.
I’ve always thought it odd how we measure our lives in years. We look back and say “that was a bad year” or “what a great year it’s been.” How would our lives change if we measured in days. If every day we woke up and decided to try harder, to set new goals, to reflect. To let go. To be present.
Instead of waking up a year from now and wondering what could have been done differently, we can set our intentions in the morning and meditate at night. We can live fully in the moment.
This is something I’ve been working on a lot recently.
Falling in love with the present moment. Taking the time to breath in the beauty that surrounds me. The trees, the moon, the rivers and the rocks. Feeling the wind and rain, the sun on my skin.
Letting go of trying to be who people think I should be and embracing who I am. Accepting that I am different. Letting go of fear and doubt.
To see people not for who I want them to be but to love them as they are. Closing my eyes and feeling their energy. Feeling the connection.
These simple yet powerful actions can bring me to tears. I’m often overcome with love and gratitude so intense all I want to do is lay down, close my eyes and soak it up. Its an amazing feeling of being right where I should be.
Knowing that it’s all so perfect.
Be curious, play with fire.
Ask a million questions, get dangerously close to the line.
Love without fear, and when your heart gets broken, love again.
Notice that every breath is an incredible miracle.
See the beauty in a strangers eyes.
Be passionate about everything you do. Don’t hide. Let that passion be contagious.
Take the risk, it’s worth it.
Embrace the mess that you are. The chaos, the imperfections.
Laugh loud and often.
Know that anything you need you can find within yourself.
Let go of expectations, doubt and worry.
Be kind. Not only to kind people but to all.
Stay wild and be free. We aren’t meant to live in fear.
