Positive or negative, those closest to us, usually have the most influence. Reblog if your inner circle helps you stay ABOVE!
You know the old saying, “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” It definitely applies here. I surround myself with great people who are above the influence because ultimately they inevitably encourage and push me to remain above the influence :)
Stupid sinus infection -_-
Throwback Thursday!!! 4 years ago I started this journey on self discovery and engaged learning and as the end of this segment draws near I can’t help but to feel a bit of nostalgia. At a time when I had recently experienced loss (my cousin was murdered) tough decisions (having a baby or going to college) and general instability in my life (depression and isolation from others) this place was my home for a year. I met some of my closest friends, mourned love lost, and cried myself to sleep many times in this building. But I wouldn’t change a thing because this building for me symbolizes change and recovery.
Nom Nom :)
And when I feel myself giving up I remember these words. “Work hard. Play hard” and that keeps me going!

After many failed attempts of trying to get fit and healthy, I’m giving it the old go around again hoping that my maintenance of this blog will be the push and encouragement I need to commit to something like this. Night 1 went pretty well I would say :)
