Lost & Found.
Lets be honest- (which I always try to be with you all, as much as possible)...Sometimes we get stuck. Stuck in a repetitious cycle. And the outcome is boring. A boring life. Unhappiness, maybe even depression. I have been in that place. I'm assuming we all have? Speaking from my own experience. In which instead of crying about it- I write about it. And I just happen to have a few readers out there :) Even so, writing in a journal could easily do the job, it's mostly about getting your thoughts out of your own head and onto paper. And letting them stay there. Cause usually those negative thoughts- the ones that don't serve you at ALL. Are best left out of your mind, cause their not true.
I sat down with a coworker today, and was completely inspired. Could it be true that one simple conversation, with someone, whom I actually don't know very well. Changed my day? Yes. Wow, the impact we have on one another. And let me tell you, this was no ordinary conversation. I learned something about someone, that I already thought was very nice and beautiful and glowing and bright, in her own unique way. But the positivity this woman exudes. my goodness! I wanted that. I was completely intrigued and wanted more of this. I find myself wondering, how did she get to that place? Has her life not been as hard as mine? And maybe thats why? All these questions and excuses come up for me. But the truth is- she chose it. She choses that. She choses love over any other feeling. She obviously choses kindness and patience. Seeing that lady be mad would be weird for me. Anywho. This person inspired me so much. I decided to write about her! And share her personality with you- in hopes of getting you inspired. She told me that she doesn't fear much when it comes to abundance, because she knows that the Universe will provide it for her. Her belief in optimism, positivity, is admirable! As well as the fact she says she asks herself in tricky situations, What would love do? And then answers with that response. Wow wow and wow. I was shocked, how can someone live this way all the time?
People are amazing.
A - m a z i n g. Right? I mean just when you get to talking to people. All walks of life. Learning about their past- what they do for a living. I'm endlessly in love with learning about everyones lives. It's just so inspiring in everyones own way. Who knows- my story might inspire someone. But here I am thinking I'm just a girl, pursuing her dream, living in L.a. Well that ain't to shabby now is it? For a girl who used to sit in her bedroom in a small town in Georgia and dream of living in California one day. Sometimes I think when were feeling stuck, right now in life, as I was when I woke up this morning- It's good to think back. To remember a different time, and then see where we are right now. Why the hell would I be unhappy. I'm doing exactly what the 15 year old self wanted. But as we evolve in life, things change. Sure the importance of pursing my dream is still very powerful. I very much want to be acting- either on stage or tv/film, whichever. But I also have grown to love other things that involve my creativity and passion. Which has become this, The Daily Kale. My purpose was to help my mom at first. To share healthy information through the internet, so she can see it in Georgia. My passion for helping other people become healthier has only grown stronger. And I must say- watching The Biggest Loser last night, (yes I love that show). I remembered why I do what I do, when it comes to this site. I want to inspire you all. I want to make sure you all are important and your health is. I hope that all of this comes across when I wrtie to you. Maybe certain things, you don't connect to., but I hope something does out of the things I share with you.
The fact of the matter is- this post. It's to share how you can be lost. You can feel low. Feel uninspired. That is okay. Just be with that. Don't run away from it. Dig really deep and think about what it is , why your feeling this? There is a reason. It means something isn't working. And you gotta fix it. Try a different path. Go think back to when you were younger, when you had big big dreams. What were they? What are you doing right now that is similar. Go back to your kid self. Color in a coloring book. Go do karaoke. Go bowling. Go be young. We all are young at heart. We have the sweetest, kind spirits. Sometimes life wants to shake it out of us, with all the negativity. But don't focus on that. Listen to happy music. Make some yummy food, make it beautiful. Realize that YOU ARE FREE. Your a free bird, you can do whatever the hell you want. Your not stuck. Believe me, your just not- thats a lie. Do whatever it is you want to do. Belly flop in a pool. Be spontaneous. Or just simply sit at home and read a nice inspiring book with a cup of tea :) Just enjoy life. I love you guys. Take care of yourself please!

100% agree. I live more in the moment now than I ever have for a variety of reasons. I used to be a 14-16 hour a day work-a-holic (not by choice) and lost connection to what was really important...my family. I've taken a proactive approach now to simplify, work less, cut financial needs, run and build strength and love more. So, to that end, I agree and support you in your endeavor. Keep it up and, when in doubt, know that others out there look to you for support, advice and (as you said so eloquently) positivity!
