Change The River's Path

#remember to breathe.
Deeply will expand your chest,
shallow and the heaviness
will always linger.

Redirect the current state.
Anyone can change;
this is your mantra.
Put to practice your belief.

Yesterday is gone.
Make the past informative.
Let it guide your behavior
to a better you.

Today's thought:

I have Gratuitous amounts of things to Be ashamed of, embarrassed of, and hate about myself. I could if I wanted to sit and think about all the worst parts of who I was everyday. That's not going to help me grow. I am a better person now, but one thing I still struggle with is getting out of my own way. I am my biggest critic, my worst enemy, my hardest hurdle.

However, I am also my source of solitude, my best friend, my biggest fan. That is, if I allow myself to be. I can be stubborn and like an immovable force sometimes, but today I'm choosing to get out of my own way. #today I #choose me. Today, I begin to #forgive myself and #remember how far I've come.

Be happy #remember to live, love, laugh, and learn.

One good heart attracts another. Each true friend deserves the other.

Today, I remember how determined, defiant and optimistic I was as a little girl. Today, I remember how that little girl has insisted I stand up every time I was knocked down. Today, I remember how that little girl encourages me to get out of bed when I don't want to. Today, I remember that little girl is me, and I am her! #Bekind #remember #smile

My tattoos and the story behind them

I wanted to share with you my tattoos and the stories behind them. I am really interested to hear your tattoo stories as well so please share yours too with the hastag #mytattoos

-this is my first ever tattoo. I got it when I was 16 years old. It's in my mothers handwriting and it's the last two lines of my favorite poem. The poem is called Invictus and it's written by William Ernest Henley in 1875. He wrote it while he was in the hospital treating tuberculosis. It's a survivor poem. I read it first when I was about 12 years old and I thought it was so strong and powerful. It reminds me every day that I am in control of my own life and how I react to things that I can not control.
