Look out into the world and what do you see?
A future so bright, opportunities fresh as the sea?
Or do you see hardship, struggle and ache?
Feelings of insecurity, feelings of being fake?
What you see is the same, a landscape that’s fixed.
Whether it’s city buildings, mountains or a bit more mixed.
But the difference lies in the feelings you feel,
Which all stems from the way you decide to turn your wheel.
You can turn it towards the blue skies of wonder
Or move closer to the grey skies you ponder.
It’s your decision, it’s up to you
You have to ask yourself what you really want to do.
If you want more opportunities to come your way,
Don’t be afraid to ask but first make sure you clear your day.
Clear it from the perception that everything’s a struggle
And understand there will be times you have to learn how to juggle.
Life isn’t always easy but it doesn’t have to be so hard,
You are the dealer, you decide to pull the next card.
It may not always be the high card you hope
But guess what, You can pull another card- you don’t have to cope.
Because you have decided to not settle for less
Deep down you know better, you deserve the best.
My thoughts ❤️

There are days when you're your happiest self.
I mean the kinds where a traffic jam feels like boon because now you can do Monica-Ross moves with both your arms while tapping one of your feet too. The kinds where your skin is spotless, your hair tidy, and you're wearing your favorite attire to work.
Maybe I'm talking about the days where the most annoying kid in your class appears to be the cutest, and you high five him right after being sarcastic, cause you think you're funny, and he just cannot refuse to give a tap.
The days when you regret nothing, from those long left drafts finally sent to the escape from a decade old relationship. You feel lighter, calmer, sated cause these are the days when you catch yourself smiling even when no one's around.
To days like these, I wish to breathe. 💕
Three months ago, I stood on a random dirt road in the middle of rural Spain and I had an idea: What if I created a retreat where people paid to go on a long walk with me? I'd never heard of such a thing. It seemed outrageous, absurd. I did a quick Google search and couldn't find anything like it so I posted the idea on my Instagram story and then promptly forgot about it.
Two months ago, I stood outside a store in Vancouver and two women asked me about the Walking Retreat. "When was it? Is it happening?" They wanted to join. I laughed because I forgot all about it, and then we talked for a few minutes. The more I talked, the more excited I got and then goosebumps showed up as I realized I actually wanted to do it. Like for real.
Last month, on a coaching call, I mentioned the idea again, how excited I was, and I decided to build the sales page and just do the damn thing. The worst that happens is it doesn't work and I'm right where I am, except with some new life lessons. The best that happens is a dream comes true. It's a worthwhile gamble when you phrase it that way, right? Take more chances. Give less fucks.
Yesterday, I sold out eight spots in two hours. Yesterday, a wild idea turned real, the impossible suddenly became real life.
Here's what I know to be true: The seeds of your destiny are already planted in your soul. Water them, and then get out of the way. And yes, we're hardwired to fear the unknown future, but that's where the bliss lives. That's where our evolution is waiting for us to wake its ass up and get moving for us. The unknown is home to new adventures and opportunities, new emotions, wild memories. Let yourself go there.

It sounds exhausting in a way, doesn't it? To never miss out on a moment. Like sometimes all we want to do is...nothing...nap...Netflix. But I'm not talking about the slow down moments. Or even the forgetting moments. I'm talking about the hurry. The living in tomorrow. The hustling like it's a badge of honour.
To me, the honour, the thing we take for granted is the present. The now. This breath. I know I do. When I say don't miss out, I mean be here, mind + body, whatever this moment contains. Feel the anxiety subside. Feel the experience increase. It's truly the best weapon we have against the ever so quick passing of time.
This isn't the first time I've talked about this. It won't be the last. I constantly need to remind myself to be present. To take a deep breath. To look around and smile/sigh/wish/know that this is what we have and for better or for worse it won't always be like this, we don't get this moment again. When I think of it this way, I don't feel exhausted, I feel gratitude.
Big or small, what are you thankful for today? #boakman #poetsofinstagram #instagood #today #me #instadaily #writing #tbt #writingcommunity #poetry #key #loveyourself #live #followyourdreams
As the leaves on the trees start to change colors, as the wind picks up, and as the hot summer sun transitions into a milder heat, our bodies and mind also undergo a transformation. In this time, we need to pause and practice deep self-care. 🍁
Tonight, I will make fresh golden milk with almond and coconut. It will have warming spices and the option to add @getpotli
cbd honey. Each guest will create an intention to guide them through the cooler and darker months to come ahead. Then we will move into a 75 minute infusion of yoga nidra, reiki, sound bath, and @sajewellness
aromatherapy with @urban_mystic_
and myself. It would be an honor to serve you for the Fall Equinox Clearing. 🍁

That's all the combination for the day.😉
Tried the perspective, the views and took it simple, the way it is.🤷♂️
However, A general aspect that won't divulge to each individual being.✌️
A girl, being a best friend for a boy, makes his life move on with a boldness.
She's a push for his life.
When that girl is your sister, you have an angel to look over your life..!
A boy, being a best friend for a girl, is her "life support" the saviour of her problems, the one that stands beside her.
When that boy is her brother, not just in the moment of problems, but her life itself, has a "support".
All those bumps and potholes life throws, the life being adventurous, a boy dares the adventure with brotherhood.😉
A girl, at all times of highs and lows, she needs to take it out, all those goes in her mind, what makes her much more comforting is her sisterhood. Her "go-to" place.
