Randomness is part of my charm. Creative explorer and expressionist. Living Free(Ly) on the Pursuit of Epicness in Los Angeles....

It took me a long time to be comfortable in my own skin. I used to let other people define me, but that shit is for the birds. I now define myself and my life experience. Things are easier when you connect with someone who just gets you. That’s why @juiceyjay is my best friend. The journey we’ve been on the past 4 years has been hilarious. From us driving a U-Haul cross country together, to hundreds of over the top ideas, to consoling as one of us cried over a man. Shit happens. Hell…my family even wondered if I was gay šŸ˜‘ (I’m not btw lol). Anywho @pursuitofepicness is all about sharing the craziness of forging your own path. Ours and the dope people we’ve met along the way. I hope you guys will come with us on this journey. Follow @pursuitofepicness to find out about the launch. Live Free(Ly) āœŒļø

To risk it all…
For the life you love
But never lived.

Contemplations.

I used to hate my nose 
My ears
My wide forehead
And the dark marks in my eyes.
I used to hate that I have no butt
And the weird shape of my breasts.
My walk is distinct…from what I’ve heard…over 
And over
And over. 
Damn…ok. 
For years I’ve tried to hide.
Behind clothes 
People
Titles.
But mostly silence.
I thought if I kinda blended into the background, it would be ok.
But as time passes 
And the wisdom builds
My confidence grows.
I’ve learned that no one can and will love me until I decide to love myself.
So I made the decision.
To give less fucks and more love.
Because I deserve it.
So I stand here realizing that yes I am different. 
I am me.
And I’m beautiful.
Flaws and all.
I’m not beautiful because of what people see. 
My ideas, my thoughts, my words, my creativity, and my expression all make me more beautiful than any feature ever could.
So I stand here boldly
Vulnerable 
Flaws and all
Ready to be me.

Uncomfortable 
The skin I once lived in
The life I once accepted 
Slightly vibrant
Bright blues and simmering oranges
Now all feels so mute.
Blues like a stormy ocean filled with rolling waves.
Orange like the sun setting on a heavy day.
Life 
With its mini adventures 
Full of laughter
Curiosity and exploration
Is all some people yearn for in this realm
But for me, even it is no longer enough.
So the tension continues to tighten 
The knots forming in my shoulders
The endless daze strengthens
And the silent questions to god, the universe…to myself continue.
All with increasing frequency
And intensity.
I love life
But this life…this skin now makes me itch
The itch of non-complacency
The comfort of the pursuit is dead.
And now I am completely uncomfortable.
The only way back to living is to allow my uncomfortability to push me to new levels
Stomping out the plateaus once reached in triumph.

It’s time.
