Wow. Thank you guys so much for the response to my last post, i mainly posted the video to get my opinion and voice out there to support those who are going through a rough time, but i thought that it might fit well on my blog as well since this blog is themed around enjoying nature, fitness, food, and it should be implied that treating others goes along well with all of those. I can’t stress enough that being “present” in your own everyday life is crucial to acceptance and happiness. I find it hard to believe that those who walk through life aimlessly, never once stopping to think before they toss their hurtful words out at another individual can be truly happy with themselves or content with who they are. Remember, no one is perfect. In fact, not even close. I have been guilty of judging others before i had a chance to get to know them, and i have experienced the judgement of others almost everyday of my life. The best that each of us can do every single day is to live life as a whole. By this i mean: everyone, everything, every moment should be treated with the respect and kindness we all love to be treated with. Whoever first said smiles and acts of selflessness are contagious was not only a philosophical genius, but he/she most likely had a wonderful life. Be that person today! If you are a guy who likes to wear purple, wear purple and be proud of it. Who cares what others think? If it makes you happy, do it. If you are a gal who enjoys wearing rainbow colored knee socks with bright green cons and bright red lipstick; rock it! And if you are afraid to show you who you truly are to a family member, a friend, or even your husband/wife, cut the act today and you will feel at least one hundred and sixty-one percent better, you are going to have to trust me on this one. You know what else might make you feel better? This guy:
He knows how bullying feels. No worries though, after being trapped in a net he is now safe and being nursed back to health in Pirapolis.
Dolphins are absolutely amazing. There are no words for how intelligent these guys are. Apparently they are one up on us in that they have the decency to treat other species with respect. (Something humans have to work on)
On a completely different note… Guess what? No! Why would you guess that? Weirdo.
I am graduating in a month! And i could not be more ready. For the next six months, i will continue to wear my “can i really afford this” cap, saving as much $ as i can manage to scrounge up whilst paying off a few small loans. Why must i be so cheap? Well, so i can afford a bachelor pad on the West coast! Why else? Because i will be living within walking distance of some of the best food North America has to offer, attending school for another three years which is remarkably more expensive than my recent grocery bill, and oh yeah, i am thinking i should save a little something for a social life, right? Looking ahead is pulling me through these next four weeks of tests, exams, reports, research papers, and long nights that consist of: kombucha, waking up to find everyone left you at the library, textbooks, and christmas movies on my laptop to remind me that it is also almost DECEMBER! 😀 Anyone else as excited for snow as i am? I have a special project i am taking on this year called Elf Ink. I will let you all know more about this as work progresses. For now, please enjoy your Tuesday, and compliment someone on their wacky, unique style today… Seriously, do it. Remember, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! Deane, Out!
