Black, White & Gray All Over

The 20s are all about understanding the world around you being more than just the way you see it. You see, the truth is relative. There are some universal truths and even more so that have yet to be proven. We all come and interact with one another and have our beliefs, ideals, and personal truths collide. Every single day we trade ideas, and thoughts. We grow and change, while some things stay the same. No matter what, our memories and those of us, are forever. Things aren't just black and white, they're gray all over. What we want to see is in vibrant color. No one is perfect. It's something we are told from a young age and yet we're still tasked with trying to achieve perfection every day. It's impossible. It cannot be done. We make mistakes. We mess up. We do the wrong thing. It's human nature. We are flawed. We have imperfections. We are faulty. Why do we chase something, this ambiguous and amorphous, that's unattainable? There's no point. Some

Zero Gravity

The 20s are all about doing more than you ever thought possible. It's a time to test your limits and surpass them. The only thing ultimately holding you back is yourself. No one has the right to ever hold you down. You are obligated and owe it to yourself to go above and beyond what you have dreamed for yourself. Success, prosperity, happiness, love, friendship, and everything in between belong to you because you go after it. You get off the ground because you jump. You leap and you take off into the air. You ascend because the shear power of who you are propels you. There's zero gravity when you decide for there be.   There is so much power is being vulnerable. Vulnerability is not a sign a weakness but rather a sign of astute strength. Those who are able to speak the truth of who they are and share their experiences are among some of the bravest in the world, at least in my humble opinion. It takes real guts, gumption, and god awful courage to talk about what you've b

Cutoff Season

The 20s are all about surrounding yourself with positivity. There is nothing better in this world than the love of friendship. It's crazy when you think about it. You find someone who you like even with all their weird quirks, flaws, and annoying things they do, and they find the same in you and then you decide you want to stay connected for life. What an endeavor and a beautiful one at that. Friends have so much power in your life and those who are around you have a major impact on how you see yourself and your daily successes. The reality is not everyone is can or should be your friend. Other times you have to let people go. When that time comes it's cutoff season. Think of it like you're a team captain or a coach and it's draft day. It's the day you're choosing who makes it to play for you and who is asked to leave the team. Some people have been there for a while and have their contracts renewed yearly and others are brand new and are invited into your l

Riding Solo

The 20s are all about enjoying yourself. I don't know about you but sometimes (actually most of the time) I get tired of people. The conversations, the awkwardness, the social cues, and all the drama in between get to be too much to fast. You come into contact with so many people every single day and it can be overwhelming. When you get to be alone it can be a little from life, the world, and the chaos that comes with it. You have to learn to be alone and now's as good a time as any. Hunker down, turn off your phone, and get ready to start ridin' solo.  Tell me why the majority of non-celebrity people I follow on twitter are concerned with nothing other than finding a bae. ( Bae - n. - a slang term that stands for "before anyone else" signifying some kind of relationship; Ex. Do you have a bae or are you currently #singlereadyomingle? ) I cannot scroll my twitter feed without seeing the hashtags #thiscouldbeusbutyouplayin, #cuddlebuddle or #foreveralone. It
