Talent By Fran Lebowitz

“And the great thing about talent is that it is the one thing, that is absolutely randomly distributed throughout the population of the world. It has nothing to do with anything. It has–You cannot buy it. You cannot learn it. You know, you cannot inherit it. You can’t. It’s not genetic. Okay? It is just sprinkled like sand around the world, and it could come up anywhere.”

Adulting Expectations Vs. Reality

Just a reminder, being an adult might be…different than you imagined. Do it to the best of your ability, everyone has a different path. Don’t psych yourself out by comparing your journey to others, just learn the lessons designed specifically for you to reach your goals and fulfill your purpose. Social media continuously showcasing false narratives makes it easier said than done, ignore the noise. Everything isn’t as it seems, take those “perfect” people with a grain of salt. What’s a reality of adulthood that’s different than you expected (love life, career, social life, family…)? Artist: Nina Cosford

Waiting All Winter Long

Me to the beach. It’s almost that time folks, get out the coconut oil, sunscreen and adult provisions. Last year was cute, but I plan on a purple summer 2021. What have you waited all winter long to embrace?

Six Lessons From Someone’s Twenties

I didn’t write this, but every lesson hits. The sooner you learn it the more fulfilled your life will be. Although I must admit I never cared about being liked, most people as I’ve proven, aren’t the brightest which I find irritating. Spare me your company if it’s lackluster please. Which lesson resonates with you the most? What can you add? I would say: set boundaries no matter how long you’ve known someone and don’t dim your light to fit in, even if it mean’s outgrowing others. Via: Mental Health Maniac

Witches Going To Sabbath

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down

Healing Isn’t Linear

Healing takes time, crying over something you thought was out of your system is totally fine. When I started my meditation journey I found myself crying deeply while in a trance state over things I didn’t even remember, or believed I’d gotten over. All worth it, you genuinely feel trauma lifting out of your energetic body, being released from your chakras; it’s an amazing, cathartic experience. Rinse yourself clean as many times as you need. What’s something you cried over, believing you were over it? Artist: Maybell Eequay

True Meaning Of Paradise

If your life is spiraling out of control the setting isn’t going to matter, because that feeling of dread remains. This is why people self medicate, because the way you feel inside is everything and substances alter what places can’t. When’s the last time you felt the true meaning of paradise? Via: Black N Vibes
