You are aware.
Awareness is not a thing.
You cannot bottle it, or sell it, control it or force it.
Look inside, that's where it is.
The space within.
If you were not aware, you would not know of your aliveness.
Awareness is how you direct your attention.
Awareness is how you convert electric static into thought.
Awareness is what brings thought into life, as an experience.

Someone said to me the other day “take it easy on yourself” From one caregiver to another it felt good to be seen, and understood; it allowed me to pause, and become gentler in my expectations (of myself). I just thought to share that blessing w/you today. #happysaturday #courageouscaregivers #selfcare #caregiver
Babysitting my sisters kids can be a pain. My nephew literally spilt half a bag of popcorn on the floor. Uncle CJ don’t play no games. That mutha fucka is cleaning up after himself. Every last bit of it. Let the boy learn, let the boy watch. This is parenting 101 clowns, take notes. @chrissytwonames this ain’t child abuse, this is children learning. #unclecj #bestuncle #lifelessons #theyloveme
I, for long, had a tendency to panic whenever things weren’t in control. When weren’t going as planned. I used to beat myself up for not being able to manage. And it was painful. Was I what we call a “control freak” But now I realized.. a major part of my frustration were actually coming from others. So it became clear : I couldn’t control everything because I can’t control people. They do what they do. They behave because they want to. It has nothing to do with me, it is beyond my reach.
So what There’s only one thing I can act on, and it is me. The way I see things. How I want to be in life and who I will let in. So now, quit worrying.
Lead your life, your passions, your ambitions. You owe nothing to anyone, except you.

Living happy is a simple equation -> Follow Your Passion + Taking Action = Creating Satisfaction.
It really isn't as challenging as it may seem to live the life you want.
Be aware of what your passions are. This an important step. These passions are not what someone else wants for you. It is what you want for yourself. Write these down.
You must establish the steps you need to get there (and these may change as you progress, so be flexible). Action is necessary. It just won't happen on it's own. Dedication, commitment and hard work is the only way.
Celebrate the successes and be thankful as you achieve your hearts desires. The feeling when you meet your own expectations is great satisfaction.
Some people make the mistake of putting money *before* the value they provide to their audience. Not me! 🙅♂️
Helping people get to better places in life and in their minds is what fuels me. Sure, I might be paid for what I do when I get bigger, but I want to make it clear that helping people for me comes FIRST 1️⃣
I’m blown away by how fun today’s Livestream was. Great moments, great people, great times. Can’t wait till the next one!
A DOGS PURPOSE FROM A 6 YEAR OLD....PLEASE READ🙏
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolf hound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, & they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker & found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, & offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, 'I know why.' Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, 'People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life - - like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right' The Six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.' #outofthemouthsofbabes #children #blessing #gift #brilliant #dogs #share #wisdom #insight #lifelessons #important #truth #adoptdontshop #sentientbeings #pets #dog #purpose #companion #respecteverything #impermanence #message #crystalclear #insight #innocence #theonlywayoutisthrough #liveauthentic #beyourself #gratitude #bekind #peace #loveandlight
“You know, people don't eat enough cheese & crackers" .
(AD) My parents said this CONSTANTLY. Like, to the point where I am still saying it as an adult. There was nothing more familiar than my parents coming home from work and fixing a snack plate full of crackers and @cabotcheese cheese! Now that I'm older, I'm loving all new flavors (like that Habanero & Seriously Sharp) and the slices make an impromptu cheese plate so easy for holiday entertaining. Also, the older I get, the more I learn my parents are right: people just don't eat enough cheese & crackers!
