Love Is

What is love? 
Love is not weak, yet love does not overpower. Love commands, yet it respects. Love is passion, yet it is self-control. Love cannot be defeated. Love is evergy, yet it can be exauasting. Love is what makes the world go round, so to speak. Or in the worlds of Lin-Manuel Miranda "Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love, cannot be killed or swet aside."

Love is a verb. That's what it is. Whatever else you add to it is up to you, but love is an action. And it is a powerful act. Loving someone, a family memeber, your spouse, your neighbor, or a friend, means something. It cannot be brushed aside. Love is love. Love is not halfway or part of the time. Love is always love and always going to be love. It's an infintie loop. We have turned our conception of love into a twisted, half effort, substence that we can't even get a hold on. Yet I'm telling you that love it real. It's not part of some distant utopia. It's now, and it's right here. You have the power and capabiltys to love. And you also have the capablitlity to be loved. We feed off of love. Particualrly this generation of people pleasers. We thrive on the thoughts that people love us. Even when it's not real love. Somehow the idea of real love has wandered off to far away from us and we've lost it. Let's bring it back eh? Love takes effort and patience. Love is not easy. But it's worth it. Why? Because you reep what you sow. If you love others, you will recive love and kindness back. 


Use is carefully but use it generously, please.

And smile, cause it will be okay.

In this Moment

Hey you, right now I want you to think about something in your life that makes you happy. It could be anything. A hobby, a job, a food, a person. What is it? Once you know, dwell on it for a second. Now think about the last time you got to do it. Were you happy then?

Life is so short. It goes by quicker than we can imagine. The next time you're doing the thing you thought about, the one that makes you happy, put a smile on your face. Even if you've had the worst week of your life. You're getting to do something that makes you happy. Don't waste this moment. So many people would love to be doing the things you get to do, yet they can't. So even if you have to paste a fake smile on your face, don't forget just how lucky you are to be living the life you are living. To be reading, drawing, dancing, writing, or creating, or singing, or even walking, or breathing. Don't take those things for granted, even though it's so easy too. Things happen, your circumst…

Life's too short

In the words of my drivers' training instructor, "Life's too short, you know? Live a little. Life's too short."
And she's right, life is too short.
Don't waste it.
Don't be petty, don't have regrets, be nice to people, do good things, have fun, BE SPONTANEOUS! It's summer now! Live a little! Some of the most enjoyable things I have ever done were completely spontaneous and crazy!

Don't Take Life Too Seriously.

That should be on a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something.
My point is, Live Your Life. I cannot tell you how much it pains me to see people living without a cause, or without adventure, or they are letting go of their potential to be someone wonderful, and do wonderful things. Maybe simply because they were told by someone that "they can't" or "they aren't good enough to". But that's completely not true. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL. YOU ARE WONDERFUL. And you were made by God to do incredible things! You just ha…

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…
