Dream On

Last night I had a dream last night that me and my best friend were just moving into our dorms at NYU. Of course, we had the cutest dorm with the best accessories. Ahh, those will be the days.

Fear Not

Of crying
Of stress
Of pressure
Of feeling misunderstood
Of fearing
Of letting people down

My Biggest Fears:
1. Being alone
2. Heights
3. Not being remembered when I die

"Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom."
-Marilyn Ferguson

If you do this, everything will be just fine...

"My life revolves around those moments when we’re driving around in a full car with nowhere to go; no where to be. Where I'm gasping for breath between each laugh. It's about those moments where you get high off just breathing in so deep, you feel your lungs getting cold, and your sides start to ache. For a second, that split second, you don't care. You don't care about school, about parents, about money, about rules, or broken hearts. Who you care about are the kids sitting next to you. Cause its all we really need, isn't it? Those kids next to you, yeah. The ones who make you feel invincible, even at your weakest points. Those are the nights I live for."

*This post is dedicated to my best friends who are always there for me no matter what. I know we joke around a lot but you guys will never know how much I appreciate you. Love you guys, you're my sisters.

push your soul to the limit

“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Too often in life do we restrict ourselves and limit ourselves. In doing this, we miss out on life. We miss out on pushing our souls to the limit and risking everything. Do the thing you think you cannot do and PUSH YOUR SOUL TO THE LIMIT.

If you don't risk everything you risk even more.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

When It Feels Like Everything's Falling Apart...

...How Do You Stay Positive?

Here are 7 actions you can take to stay positive when it feels like your life is falling apart:

1. Be Grateful

Even if it seems everything is going wrong,
there are things that are going right. Every day, write down all the things you are grateful for having happened to you today. Be descriptive of each item. Feel the joy those things bring you. Even if it's something really small like your car started this morning. Be grateful for it. This will help you to stay focused on the positive.

2. Look for the Silver Linings

Sometimes events that initially look bad turn out to be really good things in the end. I can't remember the saying but it was something like every black cloud has a silver lining. Here's an example, maybe you need to look for a new job because your company is downsizing. If you look for the silver lining in that, you can see that it's making you leave a job you didn't like that much anyway. You can now find that job that you really want to do or pursue a lifelong dream or even just take some time off to enjoy life before going back to find another job. By looking for the silver lining then bad things can actually become really good things.

3. Often the Greatest Doubts Occur Just Before a Breakthrough

This is a quote by Lama Surya Das. "If you can think of your difficulties as being necessary to make a breakthrough to the new life you want to lead, it will make it easier. You're breaking free of your old life on the way to your new, more exciting life"

4. Look at the Big Picture and Focus

Decide on what direction you want your life to head. Think about what areas you want to explore, what experiences you want to feel, what do you want to accomplish in your life? What kind of person do you want to be? Then start taking steps towards those goals. Even if it’s just tiny steps every day, stay focused on where you want to go, and keep moving forwards. Then the little things you’re going through right now won’t matter as much because you have an exciting new direction to focus on instead.

5. Discouragement is Just a Trick

Here’s a quote I really like about not letting yourself get discouraged.

"Discouragement is a negative emotion with more than one trick up its dark sleeve. It tricks you into mentally or emotionally dwelling in the very place you want to leave. Drop all such sorrow permanently by daring to see through this deception of the unconscious mind. You have a destination far beyond where you find yourself standing today." - Guy Finley

Keep this in mind as you continue to take steps towards your goals. You do have a destination far beyond where you are today.

6. Keep Reading Inspirational Articles and Maybe Join a Forum

If you keep reading inspirational articles and books, it will motivate you to stay positive. You will see that everyone goes through rough patches but that they do make it through. It will be worth it in the end. Also, there are some good forums you can join where even just reading the other posts can motivate you to stay positive. Or, if you want to make a posting, you can gain support from others as well. Who knows, you may even be able to answer some one else’s post and help them out too.

7. Take a Break Sometimes

Forget about your problems and just go out and do something fun. Go to a movie, go out with some fun, positive thinking friends, go to a play, go for a bike ride, just do something. Get out and just enjoy yourself for a little bit. Sometimes, we just get so wrapped up in our problems that we forget to have fun. Taking a break will re-energize you and you may find that things aren't as bad as you thought.

"There's a small tattoo of a star inside her left wrist. 'My grandmother told me and my sisters that everyone has a special star. I looked at my star every night before bed, just like brushing my teeth. When I came to New York and I opened the window of the thirty-fifth-floor apartment, there's light pollution and fog, and I couldn't see my star. So I drew it on my wrist with a pen, but it kept washing away. Then I went to a tattoo parlor on Second Avenue and had it done. It was something I had been missing, and now, no matter where I went, it came with me.' She consciously created the Gisele persona as she started to become a star herself."
-Vogue April 2010, The Shape Issue

[...I'm thinking about getting a tat except I want it to have some type of symbolism like this. What about the phrase, "SET YOUR SOUL FREE"? It's def one of my favs and if I got it on my wrist it could remind me to always be true to myself and do what will make me happy. Aaaand I love that it isn't too common/generic. ]

"Gisele is a fantastic reminder to the fashion world that athleticism and curves are always in style, and that the best models stand as symbols of health and a love of life."
-Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue

“I think it's better when you're natural, when you just do whatever you want, instead of doing classes where I see all these other people holding back because they've been trained with certain skills or techniques. I'm like, whatever.
-Gisele Bündchen

i love Gisele's vibes.

Meet Virginia

Meet Virginia


She doesn't own a dress
Her hair is always a mess,
If you catch her stealin' she won't confess
She's Beautiful.

Smokes a pack a day, wait,
That's me, but anyway
She doesn't care a thing
About that hey,
She thinks I'm beautiful
Meet Virginia

She never comprimises,
Loves babies and surprises,
wears high heels when
she exercises
Ain't that beautuiful
Meet Virginia

Well she wants to be the Queen
Then she thinks about her scene
Pulls her hair back as she screams
"I don't really wanna be the Queen"

Daddy wrestles alligators
Mama works on carborators
Her brother is a fine mediator
For the president
And here she is again on the phone
just like me hates to be alone
we just like to sit home
and rip on the President
Meet Virginia, Mmmm...

Well she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back as she screams
"I don't really wanna live this life"

She only drinks coffee at midnight
When the moment is not right
Her timing is quite, unusual
You see her confidence is tragic, but her
Intuition magic And the shape of her body?

Meet Virgina I can't wait to
Meet Virginia, yeah eh yeah hey hey hey

Well she wants to be the queen
then she thinks about her scene
Well she wants to live her life
then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back as she screams
"I don't really wanna be the queen"
I, I don't really wanna be the queen
I, I don't really wanna be the queen
I, I don't really wanna live this

"In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer."
-Albert Camus

"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world."
-Ada Louise Huxtable

Oh well,
spring break will have to do...
