No one really tells you how much letting go is going to happen in life. You’re not going to keep much of anything on this journey — your childhood will go, your teens and twenties will go, then your thirties, and forties... And by that time you start to get it: it’s ALL going to go! It also becomes clear that there’s almost always a sort of breakdown of one age/stage/situation as it gives way to the next. This is a good thing! The process of breakdown is actually the way life eases you into what’s coming next. My affirmation today: There’s a cycle of life and I can trust it.❤️
This time last year I made my first solotrip to the Azores. And it taught me a few things that are so simple, yet hidden to most 🌍
We are all curious about one another, but have the same fear to talk to strangers.
We all want to know what lies beyond, but do not want to leave our comfort zone.
We all want to be free of stress, but cannot stop rushing and counting the money in our pocket.
We all want to help people, while being scared of cutting ourselves short.
However, once in a while, you meet people who step outside, who engage in real conversations and not just small talk. People who seize the day and care about experiences, rather than about things.
These people are travelers. With an open mind, free of judgment, ready to be amazed by the unknown, rather than to be scared of it.
So next time you go places: don't be a tourist. Be a traveler. And you might learn a thing or two.
Falling in love with yourself is as beautiful as any experience of love is. It‘s learning to laugh at your awkward tendencies and smile at all your quirky habits. It‘s learning to be greatful for the many sides you have, realizing that you are one of a kind and that you deserve to give the world the best person you can be. Be happy with your own life and know that in this one moment in time, You‘re beautiful simply because you are you ❤️🌍✌🏻
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT 🗣 Give your loved ones their flowers 💐, love ❤️, and appreciation 💑 while they are still here. It is half the year, and I have endured so many losses already. By far, my aunte, and my grandmother passing back to back has lead me deal with emotions that I can not ignore , even though many people that know me would say that I am not emotional at all. But I’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster since 2018 has begun. One moment I am happy, then sad, then that turns into thankfulness because out of all the dumb shit I’ve did in my life I am still here . From getting Ass shots, to All the times drunk driving, all the petty brawls I been in, all the men I fucked on and left hanging, all the dark situations I put myself in without thinking how precious life is really has shined light on my own ignorance, and disregard for life. I never show much of the things that really matter to me on social media . But people matter to me, and many of us don’t know how blessed we really are❤️
I don’t talk about this enough and I should. I have created several products now and not all of them sell very well. The Art Of Beer poster is one of them.
I’m super proud of it and how it turned out but it’s not something people really look for. But the lack of sales will never take away everything I had to learn in order to design and print in mass scale this poster. 🙏
When I first realized how deep and pervasive my childhood trauma was, I was already in my thirties and I was PISSED. It felt like a whole bunch of irresponsible adults had handed me a giant bag of pain/problems that I was going to have to spend the rest of my life sorting through. And you know what? That was true. But also you know what? It has been the most meaningful journey of my life. It has allowed me to be of service to others, set a powerful example for my son, and learn to love and accept myself JUST AS I AM. Making the decision to embrace your wound and the journey it takes you on is the most powerful choice you can make for yourself — and for the world. And the world really, really needs you. ❤️ (Via @glennondoyle)
I wouldn’t be who I am today, if I haven’t travelled SO MUCH for years! Traveling made me kinder, more understanding, more patient, more inclusive, more detached, more playful, more appreciative, more grateful, more resilient, more adaptive, more relaxed into knowing who I am and who I am not. .
It helps tremendously NOT to get SELF-IDENTIFIED with a daily routine in one country, and NOT to fall into the illusion that this is ALL THAT THERE IS and that’s ALL THAT YOU ARE. .
Because it is not.
It is bigger, brighter, bolder and much more sophisticated than you have ever imagined it could be. .
Immersing into different cultures is the best form of education. 🌎🌍🌏 AGREE??? 😍
🌟🌟🌟Я по-настоящему нашла себя только тогда, когда научилась ОТДАВАТЬСЯ. Раз за разом. Искренне. Открыто. Бесстыдно. Отдавать всю себя без остатка. Миру. Любви. Приключениям. Возможностям. ЖИЗНИ. ❤️
А вы умеете отдаваться? Умеете быть пустотой? 🌑🌕
