I was doing some reflecting today... sitting on a train with the babe of all babes @meredithouzounian - we couldn’t get on our flight in Milan so we took the train to Zürich, and I was watching the sun go down over the water + thinking that there was no way in fuck hell I would have thought I would be in that moment. Like really truly IN THE MOMENT. I just saw my twinner @chlomo88 tie the knot in a castle in Tuscany with incredible friends + family in attendance... I made amazing new friendships + connections that I have no doubt will last a lifetime. I let go of old shit that no longer serves my greater purpose. I spoke my truth. Reflection.... Specifically THIS shoot day came up... for starters, it was one of my favorite shoots and hangs with one of my favorite people in the world @kimberley__bennett and secondly, because it was one of the first days of the start of my new life, and Kim gave me the most incredible advice + pep talk about my decisions. Every day I made a decision to stay in an unhappy, unhealthy mindset. I repeated this pattern for decades. I made decisions that caused me to be unhappy on a daily basis. I lived in victim mentality and I didn’t even realize I was doing it most of the time. I let my ego drive. E (my ego) ran the show. Finally, my spirit was so sick that my body got sick. I tried real hard to hold on to my old way of life because I didn’t want to face hard facts. I didn’t want to change until one day, suddenly, I just did. I changed my mind. I changed my habits. I changed my lifestyle. I changed my PERSPECTIVE. I changed the people in my life. I changed my surroundings. I changed my attitude. Every day is a new opportunity to make a transition + you don’t need to wait, like I did, to make your move. One day you will be sick + tired of being sick + tired, and I hope that you make the decision to open yourself up to the incredible world of possibilities that is waiting for you. I sucked at life for a really long time, babes + guys... NOW I am literally living the life I’ve always dreamed about. Don’t be scared to meet your true self. Don’t be scared to really get to know yourself.
