breathing dreams like air.
dance with me and I’ll show you the stars ✴︎
I’ve been teaching some photography courses. It’s been so much fun and I guess you could say it’s prepping me a bit for when I have my own full blown classroom one day! One day as in like 2 years, when I finish my Masters ✨ so excited. Link in bio to sign up for one of my classes or shoot me an email so we can schedule a class time that works for both of us :)
I was inspired by @rainbowsalt post yesterday and her question asking: ‘how have you grown in the last few years?’ ⠀ ⠀ Here was my response: ⠀ ⠀ In the last few years I have learned about love. About real love and the value of love. I have learned to slow down, to show up, and to listen. To listen to my heart, my mind, my body. I’ve learned what is real and now versus what is expected. I have learned to dig deep, to feel ALL the feels, not just the good ones. But to sit back soak it in and let it brew until it spills over the edges. I’ve learned to let go, to forgive. I’ve learned to be intentional. I’ve learned so much and I continue to learn so much. I could go on forever of what I’ve learned in the last three years...but I’ll stop here for now ❤️⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ So now I ask you, how have you grown in the last few years?
With you I feel only one. One soul, one heart, one beat…one by one. When we are apart I feel a pull, a gravitational connection in search for you.⠀ When I find you again something inside me ignites. Your face, your arms, your soft touch against mine…your smile as you reach for me and tender words to say hello. We embrace, we fold, we melt into one. Like no time has passed at all, I find my way back to you. Now it’s time. I never knew before…how this world we live in has a plan for me and you. How just enough love and heartache needed to pass until I truly found you. Saw you, see you, feel you, breathe you. You and me forever one. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ I wrote this a while back when I was having a hard time expressing my feelings to Anthony. I was really missing him when I was living in Arizona, and this was one of many little writings I would send him. ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ I’m wondering if any of you can relate?
just be. be there, be you, be your best, be mad, angry, happy, sad, but just be.
Don’t settle for nice, for pleasant, for familiar. Keep looking until you find something that really moves you, that resonates with your core. And I mean this for people, for interests, for hobbies, for your possessions, clothes, music, books, art. Everything. Curate every aspect of your life, as much as you can. It’s in the things that deeply inspire us that we find ourselves. Surround yourself with truth, and you’ll have built yourself a heaven. -unknown
lazy sunday-daze. just booked a short flight back home (az) in July and I can’t wait! I’ll be celebrating some important people and events like my grandma’s N I N E T I E T H birthday!!
Remember that once you dreamed of being where you are now. ⠀ ⠀ Yesterday, Anthony and I took a tour around @cupdx to check out the area as well as learn more about the Master of Arts in Teaching program that I’ll be starting in the fall. As we were walking the campus my excitement grew and grew. This feels right, I kept thinking to myself. ⠀ ⠀ However, last week I was feeling differently. I was unsure of this decision and unsure of how this aligned with my dream. As I spent much time reflecting I see it so clear now. I see the connections. I see where this venture is taking me. And it is leading me to the life I’ve always dreamt.
