It has been 1006 days without you. 1006 days without your laughter, without your advice, without your love here physically in this house. The last 682 days have been the hardest 1006 days of my life. No one ever teaches you about the hard lessons of life, like losing your mother. One day you are asking her how to get your contacts and about pink eye and the next she's gone. I think the one thing that these last 1006 days have taught me is how to be strong, how to love fiercely without asking questions and how to live every day like it might be my last. I had 24 magnificent years with my mom, and a lifetime of memories. But there's a few things I wish I had known before. Everyone is struggling but it’s how we overcome it that matters
You surround yourself with people who are positive, uplifting and have the same interests as you..... Correct? So why not, follow people on Instagram who bring the vibes, are positive from the inside and out and make it a place where you actually want to scroll. Here are 7 of my favorites in no particular order that bring the good vibes, bright lights and make me actually want to be on Instagram.
Five songs I have compiled with some of my favorite people, and I will let you in on a little secret, we all love these songs. They make us wanna repeat them forever, vibe with them forever and they will always be our favorites. I would have done more, but let's face it we all know I Love spreading new music and you will all continue to get more of these, but put these on your playlists and thank me later. Also watch Almost Famous, because it is the greatest movie ever.
Chadwick Boseman left a legacy of kindness. He was fighting a battle no one knew about but still continued to be a hero even off the screen. I always think to myself what can I do daily to make the world a better place. Can I write a blog post to help someone through a difficult time? Can I spread the knowledge of what I know in my podcast to let the person who needs to hear it actually hear it? I think the thing that we forget that Chadwick never forgot, is to just go through the day in hopes that it helps someone and not even thinking too much about it. He helped people, yes. But did he gloat about it? Did he wake up everyday thinking about it? No, he just did it. He was just a kind person, a helping hand and someone who never wanted credit because thats what we should all do. We should never want credit, we should just do it because we are decent humans. Decency goes a long way..
Everyone has goals correct? You have life long goals, three year goals, fall goals, and summer goals. Well with summer ending, I thought what would be a better way then to see if I got my goals done. I had five goals for the summer, and I can guarentee I learned more from them then I thought I would in the beginning. So enjoy baring with me, because patience is the key and life is always moving. So keep moving with it, even when your goals are done because there could more ways to reach what you want. Life and goals are never ending, and always changing. Keep reaching for the stars, cause I Know even though summer is ending, none of my goals will ever end. Goals should always keep being the fuel that lights your fire. If you do not have continuous goals, then are you really striving to do better everyday? Let's take a look at my goals and see what I have accomplished, and what I am still working on. Still working on those goals as well? That is totally fine...... trust in the process, and reach the sky.
I have about ten minutes until my supper is ready and I was told just to write. I have been feeling kind of down lately. I have been grieving, I have been feeling lonely, and I have been feeling like nothing makes sense. Confusion is my main emotion, and I can not get use to it. I love knowing why something happened, and what happened. I hate not knowing, and I hate when you know alittle but not the whole picture. Sometimes I wonder if we will ever get the answers we need. I Just do not know understand life sometimes.
