Life is always rocky when you're a gem

Julie Ayala (@danklisafrank)

No matter how you want the world to see you. No matter your size. The way you style your hair. They way your thighs rub together. The way your arms are muscular. The clothes you wear. The way you put on makeup or the way you don't use any. We are all beautiful. We are all capable. These things do not define us.

I used to notice every thing wrong with me when I didn't have any sort of confidence. I lived under a rock even though I was surrounded by people. I took my flaws and compared it to other people and I became sour like the people I used to hang around with. I lost myself in comparison. I would hate people who seemed better than me. I would hate on people who seemed all around happy with themselves. I would say nasty things about people and use my time to make said people feel bad about themselves. Even if it was something small and snarky, I did anything I could to take the time out of my day to say something nasty. It was horrendous. I was a nasty vile person. I chose to be like everyone around me. Miserable. It wasn't until I grew up a little more. Bit by bit I started to learn how to love myself and be happy in my own body and mind. I stopped comparing years ago. It was a long battle to get here at this place of mind. I started to notice that I would smile more genuinely and my appearance changed. I was healthy. I learned over time that everyone is beautiful. Everyone has imperfections that make them a person. I stopped taking time out of my day to be rotten and I started taking the time to be a safe place of nice and welcoming. I gained more best friends that way. I wasn't a person who spent their time alone anymore. I was surrounded by people who learned radical self worth as well. I'm not saying my self journey is like everyone else's, but it does help to be nice. It does help to lift everyone else up. Im learning that I used to be like this before I let sour people turn me. It's great to be back at a place of pure genuine love and I'm sure my friends appreciate it as well.

Positive vibes to all the sour souls.
I'm sorry that just like me you weren't watered enough and now you don't understand the concept of growth. In time we will all get there together and the sun will heal your wounds and you will grow out towards the warmth.

I always jump and take risks with my life and I always encourage my friends to do the same. My life is reckless yet I know my boundaries, I try my best to push through and to keep doing better. I never settle because "okay" doesn't cut it for me. I love myself too much to settle for just "okay"
Even with little steps you can make leaps and move forward into a life full of passion. Some days it's a slow steady grind, but most days it's a whirlwind and I like it like that. I always feel sorry for people I look back on who are still in their comfort zones because they are too afraid. I am proud that my best friends, my loved ones and myself are passion seekers and thrill seekers who are always helping each other reach what's best for them. It's not about pushing someone into something they aren't ready for. Its about knowing your loved ones well enough to know what would help them. I love my small groups of people so much and whenever I feel like a day is a slow steady grind I think of their accomplishments and how they would help me. Seek other thrill seekers. Seek passion. Seek unconditional love. Seek adventure. Seek. There's more to life than what you are currently living. There is more to life. Love you all.

My favorite past time is sitting on the floor at the local comic book shop and sifting though these colorful comics
