Today was a super chill day. Getting back into the groove of things and making the best of whatever comes my way….that’s what it’s all about. It’s amazing how a song can make you reminisce and take you back and reflect on life. It’s like riding down the freeway with the sunroof open, going with the flow behind the steering wheel. No destination in sight, just riding out. I used to do that all the time. Spontaneity at it’s finest. I guess I’m just a Cali chic with a big beautiful smile and a dope soul. My laid-back demeanor says it all. It’s the simple things in life that are the most meaningful. Holding the door for an elderly couple, complimenting the next woman when she is clearly looking her best and even realizing your child reminds you so much of yourself. There is beauty in everything, if only you look around and appreciate the joys of life. I like it when people laugh from the gut, express their emotions and allow vulnerability to make them human. Life is taken way too seriously. Why not express yourself to the fullest? Why keep what you feel a secret? Who are you trying to impress? What are you afraid of? Too much stress behind all that. I’d rather spend my time counting my blessings and getting to a deeper level. A deeper level of love, understanding, compassion, peace and realness. Looking back on my life, I am the epitome of strength. I wouldn’t trade my life for anyone else’s. I come from a family of strength, courage, humor, support and love for one another. Everything I have survived has carved, crafted and molded me into the beauty reflected in the mirror I see every day. What a joy to look at that face and say, “girl you didn’t give up.” Keep doing the damn thing! Whoever exits my life is free to go, no questions asked. Anyone who wants to stay….you are truly welcomed. My tribe will continue to find me because we just simply connect on that level. No words needed. Energy never lies. Close your eyes when you listen to this song and let the melody hit you any way it wants. This shit is fire!!!! Catch that!
