this little OKC trip has made my heart very full. pure sisterhood here, folks! thank you to all the amazing women i met through @honestandkind and to my most gracious hosts @rachelphotographs and @colleenmerchant. i'm headed home now, but this quote will be on my mind for a long while.
Create a virtuous cycle, instead of repeating a vicious one. Break out of the toxic loop and stop circling the drain, before you begin spiraling out of control. Take the initiative, while you still have power to choose. Pull yourself out of the current, before it drags you under. Eventually, you'll be weakened and incapable of freeing yourself •
Stop the abuse and end the madness. You cannot go on living as you have. The behavior is unstable and unsustainable. There's no intent, nor purpose. You must put yourself on track toward a worthwhile pursuit. You must develop some personally defined goals. With nothing to aim for, you've no direction. Without a target, you're simply floating aimlessly without cause. •
The first step toward betterment and progression, is defining what that means for you. Success is something different for everyone, but it always means meeting your personally defined goals. You must decide for yourself what you feel most passionate about and what is most important to you. You are responsible for having a cause and delivering the desired effect •
Get your mind right. Consciousness is like a radio dial. You have twist it and turn it about, until you tap into a wave that suits you. Once you dial in and discover your interest, then it's merely a matter of fine tuning to bring clarity. Scan the stations and tune in to what makes you feel energized. Commit to it and listen intently. Turn it up as loud as you can and feel the music within you. Rip the knob off and let it pour out of your soul •
