    Why Do You Live?

    We live... for finding the answer. In every, different, context, we discover more about ourselves... and the more we understand about how we function, the more mysterious it is, why we did the things we did... luck and favor help us along, and we learn more about what we can do...

    To often people let there past define there

    future. I have been trying to be present in the moment and try to focus on here and now. Because I learned from experience that focusing only on the past will keep you stuck in the same place. Life is to spectacular to be stuck wishing for a better past!

    I can't believe how stupid I've been sounding.

    The truth is I never had a demon. I thought I did. I thought everyday was a fight for life but really I was in Dream Reality. I thought I was the most selfless person in the world but really I was the most selfish. My mind is so creative it created a demon that was so real I was...

    We so often define ourselves by what we have

    been through. But we forget that we are not our experiences. You are not that girl that got raped. You are not that guy that got abused. You are not that person that was hurt. You're experiences have gotten you to today--but they are not You. You are You. And when you find...

    cannot love you the way you can? There is something exhilarating and empowering when one falls in love with the true essence of who they are. You are not a teacher. A daughter. A husband. A friend. These are all labels. If you are a daughter to your mother and a wife to your...

    How sweet it is to be loved by my Self.

    Real love. The kind of love that is unconditional. The kind of love they write songs and poems about. The kind of love from Disney movies. The kind of love you dream about as a child. I had to remind my Self that I am the love of my life. In doing so, I found the love of my life...

    We far too often forget about the self.

    We get wrapped up in going to work and maintaining our daily routines. Believing our experiences define us. Giving in to our minds convincing ourselves freedom doesn't exist. And in it all--we forget about the Self. Perhaps you have forgotten who the true Self is. Self is not...
