I remember when I was eighteen years old, I came home one day and I was told I would be going "home". From spending my days on the beach to pounding a pavement. It was one of the best things that could have ever happened to me.
It is funny how sometimes we are taught many things, but we don't follow up on them, whether it is out of fear, sheer laziness or insecurity.
As my journey continues, I decided to list things that I needed either to know, focus on, learn or believe in.
- You can always start over
- There is always a lesson
- Letting go is easiest when you rip it off like a band-aid
- You are beautiful
- You are smart
- Not every successful person is an academic
- You don’t need to know exactly what you want to be when you’re a teenager
- Never stop daydreaming
- What you repeatedly focus on will manifest
- Discipline is not easy, it takes commitment
- Life is only as difficult as you make it
- Don’t follow the crowd
- Stand up for yourself
- Look at what’s going on inside you when you feel negative emotion towards another person
- Don’t let your past control your future
- Always follow your instinct
- Travel alone at least once. Live in another country alone
- Follow your passion- it’s your calling.
- Mind your manners- you never know who may be watching you
- Don’t be afraid to leave people behind
- Live in the present moment mentally
- Say Goodbye
- Listen to your parents! Most times, they have been through it, or know the outcome per experience!

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Walk in faith, believe in yourself and understand. Those who judge are blinded by their own thoughts.

From as long as I can remember, which is sporadic per repressed memory, there is one thing that makes me happy- The Arts.
It's the one time I come alive, where thought I feel this rumbling and complete mayhem in my stomach, I am happiest.
I believe in gifts. More than ever we are given gifts for a purpose.
And if we follow those gifts, that passion; everything else will fall into place ( think about stars aligning... that's it right there).
I also believe hard work and dedication are needed. You can't sit down and expect it to fall into your lap, or can you??
My life is definitely not perfect.
But I can definitely say, when I am following my heart and passion, I am definitely in a better place, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
When I am stubborn, my growth stalls. I resist change = bad situations occurring. I never wanted to acknowledge my action contributed to these things. My insistence on being in control (subconsciously) I didn't even realize. So I experienced what I perceived to be "bad" when it was really a lesson being repeated until I realized and acted accordingly. Like the child being told, "Don't touch the stove, you will burn yourself!" Me= proceed to jump onto the stove.
My indoctrinated desire to fit the mold I was taught to believe was the right way to live.
When I tell you I contributed to my own pressure, it's no joke.
So as the journey continues, I am learning to be accountable. Life isn't just happening to me. I am creating my destiny, my life path, my everything.
Life is happening for me. Not against me.
So throwing caution to the wind, I follow my passion.
Admittedly I still battle daily with shedding teachings of academia and corporate life.
But it will never be fully shed. It's about balance, finding a happy medium.
It will come
My Sunday thoughts, as I prepare for another week of this journey.
