Penny For Your Thoughts

Good evening champs, it's an uber-beautiful day in LA as it appears the June gloom is over. Celebrate good times, come on. Shit did I just jinx it? Anyways, it's that time of day again where I need to knock out a blog post. I won't lie to you kids, I'm like low key over one blog post a day for a few reasons. First, my life isn't super duper interesting. There are little moments where shit gets ah-mazing, but for the most part, I work a lot, hike and lay horizontal. Second, I am busy. It's as simple as that. I don't know if anyone noticed, but my posts are either pre-written content or brief. Third, I just want to lay horizontal and binge watch Sex in the City or Game of Thrones.  

So, let's break into day 14, almost the halfway point and hope I figure out what the hell I want to write about at the end of this sentence.  Nope, nothing haha. 

No, uh let's discuss a few thoughts that are bubbling in my head. 

For starters, it is important to listen to your body. If you need to take a day or two to yourself to refresh and restart, do it. No one is going to call you out for taking care of yourself. Hell, yesterday I spent all day working on a puzzle and it was beyond therapeutic. It was also lovely to just sit back and rest easy for one, instead of the constant battle of "Shit, I should be productive every second of the day." Nah, you shouldn't. Rest easy. I feel like I've touched base on this topic so many times because I am slowly trying to convince myself that it is okay. 

Second, things are not always as they appear as there is often a world buried beneath the surface. I always give advice with a grain of salt as I will never fully know the circumstance or situation. Additionally, I know from firsthand experience what it is like to try to defend or explain a situation to an outsider and by outside, I simply mean someone who isn't directly connected to the situation. Friendships and relationships are the perfect examples as there is a world that will forever exist behind closed doors.

Third, stay true to you. Everyone's got an opinion of how you should be but most of that shit matters (note: if someone is calling you out for being shitty, that matters). Don't live your life for other people ever. Form and create your own thoughts and means for living. 

Fourth, be kind to Mother Earth. She is a living breathing organism and she's the reason you're here breathing. 

Fifth, be kind to each other. It's that simple. You don't need to be kind because you don't know what someone else is going through, you need to be kind because it's the respectable thing to do in life. Take it back to the golden rule, treat others as you would like to be treated and no one wants to be treated poorly or with blatant disrespect. 

Lastly, love is love, always. So do the world a solid and support your LGBTQ+ community. 

Hm, I think that may be it honestly. I feel like all of the other thoughts have already been touched upon. Also, I can feel my eyelids becoming heavy and I may need a tiny cat nap before continuing on with the work day.

Keep on keepin' champs!
