Learn to embrace the storms that enter your life. I've always found the walk out an opportunity to turn around and say, "Thank you for what you've taught me, I'm moving on now"
You can't live a positive life while living within a negative mind. I've seen so much hate bashing on other people's photos lately, why is that? ex: "You use too much edit, over saturation, dude this is gay, get a better subject, who wears a dress hiking, this is fake, composition sucks, don't be cliche, and the list goes on." Isn't @instagram an opportunity to share your individual creativity through your own learning and developing process? Isn't it the individuals right to compose, edit, construct and design their page as they see fit? Shouldn't we all be inspiring and encouraging others? Unfortunately this isn't so. Hey, we all have negative thoughts, its human. But a positive person does not allow that feeling to go any farther than that, a fleeting feeling. We are all different and unique in expressing and delivering what makes us happy and what we find beautiful. Respect that, respect the differences and you'll be respected in your wisdom. Just remember that for some it only takes one negative comment to destroy their dream, and on an even greater unfortunate level, some are drawn to suicide under the pressure and inability to work past the bullying.
I've tried my best to distance myself from negative, belittling, peace destroying people, and beautiful things have happened!
Be kind!! _
HAPPY FRIDAY! _
Just making sure here that everyone understands, this not a shout out for a "pity party!" I feel a little guilty... I am thinking everyone is assuming this "badmouthing" is about me. I've been getting messages and comments telling me they are sorry for my "experience." I want to be clear, this is not a personal experience. Though it really doesn't matter, it could be me, it could be any of us! I just wanted to speak out on behalf of what I've seen lately, and how it bothered me. I apologize if I was unclear! Many thanks to you all for the kind comments and support!!
I took ALL of your suggestions, (minus the snowsuit, cuz ya no) and I went up into the mountains at dusk to fight in the Battle of the Mosquitoes... ... and I prevailed! Not one bite! #victoryismine
Guys! I am so elated with all the responses I received regarding my mosquito dilemma, SERIOUSLY!! I'm so excited to try all the new remedies, here's what I'm thinking_
- eat garlic, then make a garlic bulb necklace_
- a cape faceted of fabric softener sheets_
- be less sweet_
- bathe in lavender, tea tree, peppermint oil_
- face net_
- shower daily_
- no bright colors_
- eat them before they eat you
- a sword_
- Avon products_
Hahahaha!! Can't wait for that picture on a mountain top! #youarethebest
I am so totally over being attacked by mosquitoes!! Last night I was up in the mountains and bathed in repellent, but forgot my face. (cuz who likes to spray their face with that nastiness!?) My face got attacked! I am allergic to them, so even if I catch them right when they land, its too late, the swelling has begun. And I must be blind not to see the several that landed right on my nose . I despise the little suckers and they LOVE me for it. If you have any tricks you've found successful, besides moving to Iceland or walking around in a halo of fire, IM ALL EARS!
Here is a memory of a fine day when I was one of the first humans on a newly paved, mosquito free, Forest Gump road!
I haven't watched television in quite some time. It's been wonderful! That said, last night I started a new (well new to me, it has 6 seasons out) Netflix series, and I HAVEN'T SLEPT! Finished the first season . It's soooo intense! Any guesses on what it is? #bingewatch
Just over two years ago I begin a journey of healing, self discovery, personal growth and acceptance through nature exploration. I've always felt inspired in nature, and I sensed I would find answers within her beauty. Along the way I have met many wonderful people who have helped me see things differently, feel things intensely and accept things gracefully. Within my transition I have learned that life is short (Hold those loved ones with all you have...say, "I love you"), character is strength, judgment is dishonorable, regrets must be crushed, overcome your fears, mistakes make you powerful, forgiveness is best done promptly, and kindness...in it's genuine and caring form is rare! So be grateful for what you have, value and show appreciation to the friends and family who matter most. And always leave your door open for love, because that's where true happiness sneaks in!
I my journey
