The Sweet Simplicity of Strangers

I always prefer the look of people in street style photography over portrait photos. The natural body language and expressions of humans in their unaware, true form is far more beautiful than any heavily made up and overly posed scene. Capturing moments of people learning, laughing, loving, and just simply living makes me feel so warm and happy inside.

I started my very own home brew of Kombucha last week and it is bringing me so much more joy and excitement than I could’ve ever imagined. It is amazing how something so simple and pure can cause me to feel so much fulfillment, however I am not that surprised. I always find myself trying to fill voids in my life by over spending money on useless things that will mean nothing to me later on, but actually doing something that I genuinely enjoy, even as small as brewing a batch of Kombucha, always makes me feel so much happier. I love my beautiful little SCOBY and Ooglies so much and I’m beyond ecstatic to start a continuous brew and play with different flavor combinations.

Happy Brewing 🙂

Like I said, it’s easy to find beauty in everything.

The Color of Your Energy

It’s easier than you may think to see beauty in everything and everyone 

Open your eyes to what is already right in front of you

Sometimes the search is just a distraction 

Open your mind

Stop Trying, Start Doing

As far as life is concerned, I always somehow feel like I’m doing the wrong thing. Whether it be the diet regimen I’m following, the career path I’m contemplating, or even just the way I use workout equipment at the gym, I always convince myself I am doing something wrong and back out without giving it a true shot. I feel like it is normal and healthy to doubt yourself, especially when you’re doing something you haven’t before, but sometimes you need to just stop hesitating and confidently carry on with what you’re doing. It’s better to attempt and fail than to wonder what could’ve come from attempting something you’ve always wanted to. But don’t just try, trying is somewhat of a cop-out. Going into something expecting failure is trying; Going into something expecting success is doing. So go out, do what you have always wanted to do and succeed at it. Set aside your uncertainties, put in all of the effort you can, and just do it (shout out to Nike for the SUPER creative tag line).

This might be the cheesiest blog post ever, but I’m mostly writing it for myself because I lose motivation so easily. Plus, I saw this sign in the parking garage I was in today and felt inspired by the words “Wrong Way” to talk about self-doubt on my blog.
