Standard Expectations

One of the the most recent blessings in my life Abu. While he might be soft spoken his perspective on life is BIG. We discuss body image, eating/activity habits, retail experience, the power of humor, and the standard expectations of relationships--with partners, friends, and your parents. 

Abu is a man who is not afraid to do the work to have the life that you want--between the effort and the self care. His advice is always simple; drink water, go for a walk, moisturize your skin, and mind your damn business. 

There is a lot to learn, and even more to enjoy.

Watch out there's a surprise twist at the end!

Musings Episode 7

Let's acknowledge that sometimes it just sucks.

This week we're looking at the teeth marks from when life bites you in the soft tissue, before I we start dressing the wound. Take a moment to acknowledge and process those "moment of impact" feelings doesn't take away from the fact that eventually you will figure it out and it will "un-suck" take the time to process your feelings.

Don't get stuck, Starshine. 
But take a moment to exhale and acknowledge this fucking sucks.
