A year ago today I lost my best friend and sweet girl Jenny. It’s a day I will never forget… one of the worst days of my life. It’s still very hard to talk about because just thinking about it brings me right back to that morning. She didn’t deserve any of it. Jenny was an amazing little being and I love her will all my heart and soul. I think of her everyday and when I talk to her I hope she’s listening. When Elliot mentions her all I want to do is cry. I miss my baby so much it hurts. I’m still here waiting… holding on to the thought of her finding her way back to me someday. My kindred forever. Love you so much Jenny girl.

“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.” ~ Bob Marley
This is such an important thing to remember, especially when there is so much negative shit going on in the world. Because there will ALWAYS be dark vibes and bad energy – you just have to be strong enough to block it from affecting you. It is a choice.
Mental slavery is no good for anyone. And I see it everyday in people’s behavior and how they treat others. It seems some are so miserable and lost that they complain every minute to the world like that will change anything. It won’t. It hasn’t. And it never will. And honestly, no one wants to hear it.
Social media these days is a garbage dump for whining, threats, name calling, fighting, and constant repeating of the same old crap we have all been hearing for the past 2 years. This is a negative way of communicating and it just divides us all. And this country certainly doesn’t need that. But if we all just raise our frequency a bit and shift our perspective, it’s possible to move forward TOGETHER.
You have the power to create the life you want and no one can tell you how to live it. Free your mind of the darkness that consumes it and rise above the low vibes you might be spreading to others. It’s just not doing any good for you or them. Be positive, spread kindness, open your mind a bit and try to see the beauty that is truly surrounding you.
Peace doesn’t come from everyone thinking like you. It comes from accepting others even if they are different and learning to live as a united species. If we all could just elevate ourselves above the drama, chaos, lies and dark energy that lurks in society and turn our heads to the biased media and people in power who don’t give a shit about us THEN one by one we can rise up and overcome. That’s how you evolve for change.
This year has been eye opening for me. It started off bad, took a turn for the worse, and now I’m left with disheartening views and such a bitter feeling toward this country and the people living in it. It’s unfortunate but everything happens for a reason.
I usually speak my mind no matter what. Always. But lately I’ve been taking a step back a bit to observe what’s going on around me. Seeing with my own eyes how people are treating others and how they use words to sadly show their true colors. The lack of understanding and empathy out there is pretty sad. And I don’t want any part of it.
I tell myself, this is NOT okay. This is NOT fine. So I tune it out because I can’t have that crap in my life. I know I cannot change the world. But I can create how I want my life to be by living MY truth. And in doing that I release positive energy into the world around me. That is how you birth change.
My happiness allows more love and kindness to bloom around me. And isn’t that what we need most? Personally, I am so over a lot of shit going on in the world. But all I can do is move forward because life doesn’t just stop. We can pause for a bit to rest… but we must get back up. Nothing changes if you stand still too long. And change is essential.

Stretching ourselves too thin because we want to do so much will only drain the life out of us. But lending a hand here and there will truly make a difference. By starting at home and in our communities we spread the message of joy and hope within the world around us. Helping others and being positive can only make our days brighter. And as more people do their part change happens in the most beautiful way. We all must remember we are connected. The goodness in you will bring out the greatness in others. And when it comes to love and kindness, a little goes a long way.
