6 a.m. Thoughts

Good morning champs, it's approximately 6:25 a.m. and I'm only slightly bummed my body has woken me up this early. I really do wish I had my laptop though as I am currently typing this out on my iPhone. I also wish other people were morning people, haha. 

Anyways, there are a couple things I want to touch base on and the inspiration for such things is based on last night. 

For starters, how do you feel about your shadow self? The dark bits of yourself you may or may not showcase to the world. Do you lead on those bits or do you act as if they're nonexistent? I showcase my dark side to a handful of trusted individuals and sometimes I scatter it amongst the posts of this blog. Additionally, I'm not ashamed of my dark side for the sheer fact that is it define who I am as a person, rather it's just a small fraction of who I am. My darkness has transformed me into the person you meet today and there's a certain beauty to that. The pain I've experienced in my life thus far, while it doesn't always seem like it in the moment or moments to follow, has created poetry, helped me grow and made me stronger. Does any of this make sense of did I just ramble endlessly on nothing at all? There's also a slight chance you think I have it twisted as a shadow self is your unconscious self. You're not wrong, that is one definition, but today I decided to roll with this one. 

Secondly, I learned the importance of being a heart person. Now before you start trippin', I am not knocking intellect in the slightest.  There are simply different strokes for different folks. As an individual who is well in tune with herself, her emotions and can easily emphasize and read the emotions of those surrounding her, my heart is singlehandedly the best gift I have to offer the world. Through my heart, I emit an endless amount of love and compassion. Through my heart, my art is created. It's the core of my being, honestly for it's the reason I am as soft, tender and patient as I am. With all that being said, I want to end this segment with two pieces of gratitude. First, I am grateful for my mother because I have her heart as here is no woman kinder or purer than her. Second, I am grateful for Paco for she truly gets it. She helps me discover and make sense of it and that's such a gift. 

I won't divulge any more thoughts as it's no longer 6 a.m. and I am just getting around to importing the content to my blog.  I will, however, leave you with a final quote. 

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.
