Always be yourself – everyone else is already taken. Don’t fret if your “ideal” lifestyle does not look like your neighbor’s, your friend’s, or your coworker’s dream. And conversely, don’t judge others whose dream does not look like your own. "People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road does not mean they are lost"– Dalai Lama. #Quote #DalaiLama #Road #Path #Fulfillment #Happiness #Dream #Original #Independent #BeYourself #DontBeACopy #Fashion #Beauty #WhoPaysThePrice #TrueCostMovie #Documentary #FairTrade #Reduce #Reuse #Repurpose #Upcycle #Recycle #GoGreen #GreenLiving #Sustainable #EcoFriendly #Vegetarian #Organic #Yogi #Namaste

While I feel on a whole that it is wonderful that we live in an era in which connectivity is at our fingertips, I question some of the negative repercussions... All of this exposure forces unnecessary standards--It creates a culture where we are constantly comparing ourselves with others... worrying over how we "stack up" against celebrities, our families, our peers, our coworkers, our colleagues, & those rando "friends" on facebook that we met once at a party. The great marketers of the world have jumped on this trend like white-on-rice creating a culture of "fast fashion" that feeds a looming pressure to always be "on fleek": dressed to the nines, carrying the latest bag, driving the trendiest car et cetera., et cetera. This mentality begs the question, "can you remember who you were before the world told you who to be?" #Original #Independent #Individuality #BeYourself #DontBeACopy #FreeSpirit #Hippie #Fashion #OnFleek #Beauty #AmericanDream #WhoPaysThePrice #TrueCostMovie #Documentary #FairTrade #Reduce #Reuse #Repurpose #Upcycle #Recycle #GoGreen #GreenLiving #Sustainable #EcoFriendly

Although it isn't easy, I believe that it would behoove each of us to take note from Miss Colbie Caillat and dance to the beat of our own drummer, "embrace who you are, love it, and let people see it." This mentality would do a world of good for our emotions, our happiness, and our planet. "Express yourself" in a conscientious way, and rock a style that is true to your spirit--Employ practices that are sustainable, responsible, and kind (Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Upcycle) #Diary #Journal #Lyrics #ColbieCaillat #SelfLove #Love #Original #Independent #ExpressYourself #BeYourself #DontBeACopy #Style #Fashion #Beauty

You were born an original. Don't die a copy. "You will never influence the world trying to be like it" -Anonymous. I think this sentiment is of utmost importance in a society where we are constantly inundated with social media, and ad campaigns that overtly and subconsciously force feed us with "standards" of what the "Joneses" or "cool kids" are doing--what they are wearing, what they are listening to, what they are watching, what coffee shops they frequent, what cosmetics they use, what house they live in... The list goes on and on. We are pummeled each day with how to look, how to be more like this--less like that. While I don't believe that taking pride in your appearance, or the idea of social media are terrible in and of themselves--I DO think that this mentality of keeping up with the Joneses has had an absolutely atrocious impact on our emotions, and on our environment. Blog post released today inspired by @TrueCostMovie delves into the importance of individuality, & how consumerism (specifically in the fashion industry) has created quite the slippery slope of collateral damage in regards to environmental and personal well-being. #Original #Independent #BeYourself #DontBeACopy #Influence #TheJoneses #CoolKids #Fashion #Beauty #WhoPaysThePrice #TrueCostMovie

"All of the effort pays off, it really does. You can't focus on love and not become more loving. Work on compassion and you will become more compassionate. The same goes for forgiveness and trust and all the other great things that make being a human a big love affair. Practice does not make you perfect, but it surely brings you closer to the beautiful person you were born to be. And that is worth the effort." -Scott Stabile. #Grow #Love #Compassion #Forgiveness #Live #Quote #Inspiration

Attitude is everything. When looking at a dandelion--some see a weed, where others see a wish. Choose to see the beauty. Choose gratitude. Choose to begin each day with a grateful heart. Choose to engage in good practices--your habits become your life.

Be cognizant of how your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions directly affect your wellbeing-- your thoughts are powerful. Change your thoughts, and you will change your world....a bad attitude is like a flat tire, you can't go anywhere until you change it. Don't be a broken record. The words you speak become the house that you live in. It is not usually our ideas that make us optimistic or pessimistic, but it is our optimism or pessimism that makes our ideas. Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may have been given a cactus, but that doesn't mean you have to sit on it. #Thoughts #Mindset #Attitude #Gratitude #Grow #Love #Live #Adventure #Quote #Inspiration

"This is your world, shape it or someone else will" -Gary Lee. There will always be tasks, deadlines, or responsibilities that call for our attention--but ultimately we each decide independently what is important, what is "worth" making time for. We hold the #Key to our world. So you decide...is it moments of meditation, time in nature, connecting with loved ones, seeking adventures, completing your "honey do list", or surfing social media that is going to rule your weekend, rule your world? ❤️ #Live #Inspiration #Quote
