In life, sometimes we only want to respond to our big, romantic, glamourous life calls, but fail to realize that in order to reach those, we must first respond to the unromantic, sometimes hard daily calls.
For example, maybe you are craving to be called into a life where you are excited about your job and the people around you. Maybe you have this “ideal” in your head that sounds lovely that you become easily excited by. But, every morning when your alarm goes off, you groan and dread it. Wake up! You are being called to be apart of today. You are being called to put in work for right now, for your future self.
You may find these conflicting calls in several areas of your life- whether it be from work, diet, romance, etc. So I urge you to not just focus on the pretty finished picture, but the smaller, everyday calls you are receiving. What are you pretending not to know?
Until next time,
I used to believe that we should all be peaceful, and love everyone, and not criticize others. But hey, change cannot occur without a brave voice, and that voice isn’t doing what everyone else is doing, that voice is different. So be loud, scream. And people will scream at you right back. If you want to avoid criticism; say nothing, do nothing, be nothing. Open up people’s eyes…gently. Live your truth.

Here are some pictures and quotes I have been liking!
All are from Tumblr. x
“Try not to feel jealous about things, or people or places. It’s toxic. Just keep living. You will find your happiness.”
“You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.” -Tad R. Callister
“Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshipping.”
“Don’t assume, ask. Be kind. Tell the truth. Don’t say anything you can’t stand behind fully. Have integrity. Tell people how you feel.” -Warsan Shire
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” -Confucius
“Don’t stop until you’re satisfied. You want an explanation? Ask. You want to be successful? Work. Don’t settle for results you don’t want. Don’t stop until you’re satisfied.”
