Love and Be Well

this is the place. this is the moment. this is it.

we have so much going on around us and inside of us. it’s can be difficult to tune out all the excess noise.

if you’re privileged enough to have the resources, you can find and get the inspiration, motivation, help, and push you need to get you where you can and want to be. for others of us, it isn’t so easy.

the great thing is, we can all do our part to add to the collective of love in life. when we find ourselves and our individual purpose and our individual voice, we add to the goodness that exists here on this planet, at this moment.

as big and hard as it is to be here and do this, to live,it’s imperative that you try. we have been silenced, stifled, hurt, beaten, blocked, and made to feel guilty about wanting to be ourselves and be free. But it is our right.

tune it all out. tune out the world society. tune out the noise. tap into the love within. tap into yourself. feel. think. hear. be guided by your inner, real, true self. it’s there. open yourself to life. open yourself to the infinite possibilities that exist for you.

there is so much out there. you have a whole, entire life to live.

discover what it is that lights your spark, that encourages and uplifts you. find who it is that helps guide your light. there are teachers everywhere in all different shapes, forms, and sizes.

one of the greatest lessons you will ever learn is to not be dependent on form. be like water, flow with whatever life brings you. be at peace with yourself. you might not be what, who, or how you want to be at this moment and life may not be what and how you want, but that doesn’t matter. the only thing that matters is that you love yourself, appreciate this moment, realize that every moment is opportunity for change, and do your best to live, be, and do as you want.

we’ve been taught that it is wrong to want and desire and hope. unlearn this. want what you want. do what it takes to get what you want. dream. aspire to great things, have standards. expect the most and the best of life. you deserve no less.

give life, this moment, your undivided attention. do the things that you love, that make you smile, that make you happy. help and do what you can for others. show love, be love. shine. your light and you spirit, your potential and your beauty is endless. you are strong as hell. you are so powerful. you are a force to be reckoned with.

acknowledge and accept all of who and what you are. struggle, hurt, and pain are a part of your story. they are lessons and you can handle it all. you were made to. you were meant to.

it can be a little scary realizing how incredible and powerful and brilliant and genius and gorgeous you are. the realization of just how important and the full extent of your existence can be a bit overwhelming. but worry not. feel that, then move on. go deeper into yourself and see that you are a part of everything as everything is a part of you.

the more you grow and learn and see, the more you begin to understand that we are one. everything and everyone is connected. and as the acceptance and understanding of our unity becomes a way of life, when peace and joy, happiness and caring, goodness and creativity, freedom and perseverance, work and consistency, boldness and willingness, focus and grit, openness and calm, patience and confidence, purpose and self-discipline, will power and balance, adaptation and practice, understanding and love become a way of life, everything is right. everything is the way it should be. we have succeeded in the purpose of being here; to experience, live, be, do, and love.

love is the heart, truth, and reason. love is you. love is me. love is all.

love and be well.

*

It takes consistent, dedicated work, every day. It takes patience, calm, empathy, understanding, and love. It is a journey, every single moment, of every single day you are given. The more you practice the better you become, the better you become the greater your experience. Show up and do your best. Get living. 

Personal Affirmation

I am limitless. I define myself.

*

The only limits you will ever have are the ones you inflict upon yourself. No one can ever take away your spirit, your heart, your soul, or your light. It is yours and yours alone. People can physically infringe upon you and cause you literal harm, but when it comes to your mind and spirit, that’s all you.

Many of us are taught stifling and limiting ideals and beliefs when we are children. It is our job to unlearn those things. We must live our own lives and find out for ourselves what it is and isn’t, who is and isn’t, what does and doesn’t serve us. It is up to us to live, try, explore, think, and do for ourselves. –  AJ

The Key

“You attract what you are, not what you want.”
We each have to put in the effort to get what we want and need. Be all that you wish. Work on yourself, every day. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you act of love and with love.
