I blog for Change…

As I attempt to orient the windy and often treacherous roads that encapsulate life, here are some of my thoughts on the successes, failures and ultimately the hope and positivity in which I strive for a better world. I also hope that I can use this blog as a platform to elevate the social justice issues that are somewhat forgotten in the modern discourse of staying silent on issues that challenge. Sx

My Dear Fragile Human..

Sabene, you damn beaut… Look at yourself through the eyes of others. You have achieved so much, come so far. You have fought to be you, a pure, kind, honest soul in an unforgiving, cruel world. For the past 10 years, you have dedicated yourself to your trade and travelled to the most incredible of places. You have met some amazing and wonderful people who have helped shape you into the brave and courageous person you are today. Do not forget to appreciate your uniqueness, value your free spirit and drive to pave your own path. Never give in to the voices who question or doubt you, for they have their own reasons for this and their own voyage to make which is separate from your own.

But now, stop heeding the negativity of those who oppose your direction. Stop looking back, you are not going that way. Listen to your heart, dig deep into your soul and hear it what it yearns for. Continue to wear your heart on your sleeve for the love that you will find in return of this will be worth every bit of heartache you have endured. Take a risk right now on where you next place your feet towards your future, embark on that glorious leap. Write, dance, travel, laugh, cry, love and live to the most epic proportions that you can imagine. Put these elements into play in tangible ways that count and then trust the universe because you cannot escape your destiny.

You my dear sweet loving human are meant for greater things. You are destined for a life that is beyond average. I have every confidence in the world that you are brave and resilient enough to land on your feet no matter the choice or direction you decide on.

Do not be tainted by your past. Remember, you have come so far and every tear you have shed, every love you have lost has occurred to place you in the position you are in right now. Keep fighting, keep believing, keep striving because you have lived a life that is worthy and will continue to be so in the years to come. Your future is up for the taking.
