Life is a rough sea at best and it’s going to toss you a wave from time to time. Take a second to breath, be strong and continue to sail into those winds. You will make it, you will make it. Stay determined, stay focused. There is no assurance that it will end up the way you want, but don’t let that break you. Continue, with a greater determination and strength. You will grow. As that old saying goes,

I wanted to share this poem my friend Jon wrote for me. Profound and relevant and totally worth sharing, I thought it was a wonderful gesture. Thank you Jon you, you totally made my day! :D

“Out among the briny deeps,
beneath which, who knows what sleeps?
whether under sun or star,
the wind is either near or far,
exactly where it needs to be,
guiding us on open sea.
Sometimes patience is required,
to travel where our hearts desired.
Our journeys are the destinations,
even through small hesitations,
when the air just will not gust,
or blows so strong it startles us,
yet persistence is not swayed,
not by stream or lake or glade.
We are the captains of this trek,
and keep all signs of doubt in check.
We’re bold and brave, sure and clever,
that is why we must endeavor,
out beyond each new horizon,
that is what our fortune lies in.
Like men of old in books and tales,
hope is what propels our sails.
We swim with dolphins and sing with whales,
when our love of beauty and freedom prevails.”
(A poem by Jon)

🎶I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain, there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you🎶

This really caught my attention and even though I don’t have any children of my own yet, I would want them to turn out with a strong set of values that reflects their inner grace. Loved this so I’m re-blogging <3

Woman walking over bridge with girl

These are eight lessons I want to teach my daughter. I have learned these through many mistakes, periods of introspection and learning in my life.

My hope for her is to live authentically, passionately and gracefully.

1. If someone hurts you, don’t take it personally

Chances are, they have been hurt themselves. In fact, never take anything personally. Don’t let compliments get to your head and don’t let criticism get you down. It is a known fact that most people can only give others what they have received themselves.

All your actions and words should come from a place of love. But not everyone will be loving back. And that is OK.

As Miguel Ruiz explained in his book The Four Agreements, when you do not take anything…

I feel this was more for us girls than it was for you guys. We should all strive to be better than ourselves and feel confident no matter where we are in our lives. Take ownership, put it out there, and don’t allow anyone’s negativity to bring you down. I thought this article was great!

2. She doesn’t try to make you jealous. She’s secure in her worth, and your ability to recognize how valuable she is. She doesn’t need to play games to “trick” you into seeing her her for what she is.

3. She doesn’t have a princess complex. She demands that you treat her with respect — but because she is a person you love, not because she is a woman and therefore magically entitled to something. Just as she would expect you to treat your friends and family with respect, she knows you wouldn’t treat her any other way. A high-quality woman wouldn’t be with a man who was…
