(Written March 8, 2018)
I genuinely cannot believe that 1,000 people are following this account. As the tiniest of thank you’s, here is one of my all time favorite poems I’ve written about how amazing we are as people. But seriously, I was pretty scared to ever put my work out in the open in fear of it either being stolen, or for the kind of feedback I might get on it, but I have received absolutely nothing but positivity about what I write. I’m genuinely amazed by how kind everyone has been on here, I just don’t know what to say. These words that I write have been the only way to express what I feel, considering I really don’t like talking to people about how I feel. It’s amazing that I’ve put the most vulnerable part of myself on here, and many of you have been able to relate to it and have made this part of me stronger and more confident. Thank you if you follow me, if you have ever said anything kind to me about my work, even if you’ve only ever looked at one of my posts. In a world where I constantly feel alone, this account and everyone who responds to it shows me that I am not. Thank you. (Also, that last line was inspired by one of Sleeping At Last’s tweets. Just have to give him some credit for the inspo😉)
can really be lived alone,
it really cannot be told
would not be told...
WE WERE LUCKY...
WE HAD A LIFE,
THAT WOULD ALWAYS
WHAT A WONDERFUL THING;
TO HAVE A STORY
TO BE TOLD...
THERE IS SOMETHING
THAT I KNOW...
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
WHY WE TELL STORIES...
YOU BELONG TO SOMEBODY... ,
IF YOU'VE GOT
SO MUCH THINGS
TO REMEMBER AND TO TELL... ,
TELL YOUR STORIES...
THERE WILL BE
IN YOUR STORIES...
A WEIRD STORY
My life is a bit surreal.
Even an artist's dream... ,
cannot reach my reality !!!
A WEIRD STORY

Jour 12 : The Bible Belt
Nous passons la matinée avec Carl et Vanessa Jennings, puis remontons vers le Nord de l’Oklahoma.
Sur la route, nous visitons le National Cowboy and Western Museum. L’occasion pour nous d’admirer la carabine Springfield 1873 utilisée par John Wayne dans She wore a yellow Ribbon, ou la veste portée par Robert Conrad dans Les mystères de l’Ouest, entre autres.
De retour sur l’Interstate, nous doublons un camion avec cette phrase peinte sur le hayon : « With God all is possible. » Ce qui ne l’empêche pas de nous faire une queue de poisson.
La religion est partout. C’est une des caractéristiques de cette zone appelée la Bible belt, ceinture d’états puritains et rigoristes.
Au pays des télévangélistes les églises sont légion. Et il faut faire acte de courage quand on est agnostique. La case « religion » est présente jusque sur les papiers d’identité.
L’Amérique de l’intérieur est restée figée dans une certaine idée du Far-west, mosaïque de communautés où l’étranger n’est pas forcément le bienvenu. Pour preuve, une anecdote racontée par une Indienne (une étrangère, donc, bien sûr) : elle fait le plein d'essence dans un autre comté que le sien. Le pompiste commence à lui poser des questions. Le shérif s’en mêle et lui signifie qu’elle ne fait que passer. Un truck rempli de gentils garçons vachers la suit jusqu’aux limites du comté pour s’assurer qu’elle ne se perd pas.
C’est aussi ça, l’Amérique.

It’s okay if you don’t have your shit together.
We have been LOVING this in our house lately! Ella has been so drawn to it and loves sitting there tracing her letters! She gets SO proud of herself every time she writes one on her own and it makes my heart so full! I love watching her be proud of myself! I feel like I’m doing my job perfectly seeing her self-esteem shine like that! ✨👏🏼📚 #mumgoals
“If I died tomorrow, would you hate me,
Because I left you in a cruel world?
Would you pity me,
Because I left so much unsaid?
I wonder, would you remember me,
Faults and charms alike?
How I loved your dress,
That I would rather go without air than without your smile?
Or would my lies rankle under your skin,
Along with the times I should have told you I loved you?
I have only one favour to ask
If I die tomorrow, please don’t despise me,
For I am as imperfect as you are beautiful.”

•Didn’t intend to post but oddly it’s a day of strength & happiness.
•i have assured to keep it as true and real as I can, no different now.
•THIS, exists. the ego feeding porcelain image of perfection DOES NOT. For a lack of better words, it’s SAD how many innocent hearts believe the skewed realities of others, casting more isolation and self hatred upon themselves.
•so, here is an image of me, in words.
•This past winter, I was rejected in near every area at once.
•Academics strained a first year on campus, working full time and attractively improper distractions.
•Career advancements denied for having my focus on now, meaningless things. Also hindered by my bitter choice of a degree first. NOT AT ALL, dampening the blow. Rejection is still venom to the veins.
•3 year ongoing family affairs as an only child always found wound in the middle with mommy issues.
•And admittedly most crippling- the most confusing, strenuous, red, green make me double back over blatant clear things yet feeling crazy game affair of the heart I’d ever found myself enigmatically lost in(including my own (finally) taught errors.
•Couldn’t sleep at night, fell asleep during the day, shattered in every area, lost total sense of purpose with no direction.
•Looking back a few months later, I’m up all night creating a vision, offered different, more suitable universities for my major, have direction for grad school, and getting the chance to meet/talk with some amazing souls I have met and meet daily on this platform. (You, I mean you who’s reading this right now.♥️)
•The perspective of our situations and following the “current” or direction of where our insides pull us, is so crucial in finding any real “sense of self”.
•any of my “successes” from grappling out of this pain aside — each journey is different and i promise from the very core of my soul, if you remain true to who you are, and patient with yourself along the way, a metamorphosis of the soul will occur in you.
•no better canvas than a pebble I pictured a few months ago in a much different place.
•sometimes a gentle breeze, or monsoon unable to come up for air. your overall strength is found in the courage to become.♥️
they say necessity is the
mother of invention, and
perhaps that is true.
i've just come to realize
that loneliness is but a
shade away from necessity.
oh, what I've done under the
guise of loneliness for things
i was sure i couldn't do without.
need, need, need, that feeling
of needing others will bleed you
dry if you let it, and i have.
i sit here on nights like this with a heart bled out and a hand full of needs too heavy to hold not wanting to admit that #ineedyou

One of my favourite people in the world 🌻🌻🌻🌻
All I wanted to do was workout but instead...I witnessed a body shaming fest.
ITS TIME TO TALK.
There were only two of us working out at the park. This girl was enjoying her workout..and so was I.
A group of people started to laugh at her and put her down about her weight.
I had my headphones in and did not hear everything but I did notice something was off just by the way they were standing over her. "you're already fat there is no point.....why bother! Nothing will help you." "Your body is disgusting"
Once I fully understood what was going on and said something. They started to come at me. And of course calling me a "fake ass bitch" "why are you wearing that?" "Go look at a magazine..you'll see exactly what you're not"
literally telling me that I "missed a spot" pointing at my body.
Two different body types and they had something to say about the both of us.
She was "too fat to live" and I was "too skinny to be fit and too fat to be skinny"
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
for all those out there who feel the need to open their mouths and share their unwanted, judgmental opinions. DONT.
Body shaming or any type of shaming is an extremely harmful act.
This is just one of many stories I've either been apart of or have heard of.
You put on so much makeup, you cover your face in order to portray a socially constructed version of beauty. You get lost in all that paint. You change your color both physically and emotionally. Makeup wears off, styles go out of style. Your life becomes dieted, filtered. And control by others. Your body becomes other people's inspiration board.
You can't please everyone. Nor should you.
Remember when you do something to Or for yourself. Make sure it's because You want to. Not because others have inflicted that idea upon you.
Stay healthy and stay positive.
You are beautiful. Embrace who YOU are. Don't erase. Love yourself. Respect yourself.
Treat yourself with kindness and don't listen to all the noise around you. Trust and be confident in who you are.
For all those who are doubting.
You and your body is beautiful.
If you need someone to remind you. I'll be here to do so! 😊
NIKE ✔️Never a bad sign 💪🏼
Your inner ELVIS is showing. 🖤
