Vegas can chew you up and spit you out physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
And yes, I am here celebrating life with my two loves, but I'm still me, and there are things afoot in my life, just like with you.
This text spoke to me this morning and a beautiful reminder to keep rising and rising.
To put one foot in front of the other and vow to be a better person every minute, every hour, every day.
Okay, so how DO you "become a better person?"
Well, I think it's just being a person that is committed growth in all ways and in all things.
Someone that approaches life and themselves with the desire to learn.
Someone that is reflective and connected to their brain, heart, and soul.
Someone that continually observes and reflects upon their own actions and words and asks the question,
"Knowing what I know now is there anything I could or perhaps should have done differently?"
And then proceeds to do just that should the same situation arise.
I'm not perfect. I fuck up. I make mistakes. I can be insecure, neurotic and snappy. But I try not to be. I try to put my best self forward at all times, but I'm only a human after all, and you are too.
And after everything I always vow to just love myself and others harder than before.
I'm not saying it's easy. It ain't.
But it feels better than the alternative, which is a brain that's in the fog, a heart that's covered in ice, and a soul that's lost.
My one takeaway for you from all this - bump up your levels of compassion.
For yourself and for others.
And ask yourself, "What's one thing I could have thought, done or said differently?"
And COMMIT to that, TODAY.
Sending love and light from the city that never sleeps.
