[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Renewal and Evolution

Surrender It's not about giving up or bowing down. It's about holding on to the
knowledge that something bigger and more powerful than you is at work
beneath the surface of your experience, and that it will take you exactly
where you need to be. Now, in hard times, surrender is probably the
greatest challenge you will encounter because it's so hard to accept
uncertainty. But that, my beloved, is the point. You don't know what's to

but you must know that whatever happens, you will be OK.


There is nothing for me to prove to the doubters or those who just aren't
free enough to believe in the possibility + probability of positivity+ pure

My drive is fuelled by my desire to be sure that my ancestors are aware of
my gratitude for all that came before me to ground me + to project me into
my presentness Every breath is blessed responsibility.

My drive is also fuelled by the belief that I am and will continue to be a
demonstration of what is possible through authenticity +
self-love+discipline. But everything is everything and it only goes as its supposed to.

I have had a power filled year. One of peace + purpose + a lot of travel + not much sleep + sometimes not
much cash, but that is what comes with being a manifestation of dreams. So thank you Here's to-Evolution. Revolution. Reboot. Realign Peace!
