Own It

The greatest word of advice I can give to anyone wanting to realize a dream…is to believe in them! Don’t look to the outside world to understand the concept, drive it push it and make it a reality. Sometimes you have to paint a picture so that others can appreciate its beauty. Another important point never let anyone take your dreams away from you, not even you.

Persistance is key. Keep knocking, keep driving and keep believing beyond a doubt that you will realize your heart’s desire. Also do it for the right reasons, fame, fortune and beauty fades but a legacy of love will remain forever. I am not sure where I am going in this life, but I know its to places and people I love. I want an open spacious life that allows for adventure, freedom and passion.

I count my days as if they are my last because one day it will be, but when I turn to face the memories of the past I know that they were not taken in vain. So grateful for this journey as much as it has kicked my ass I am a better woman for it.
