I thought of all the summer evenings I'd spent sitting in the chairs under the trees beside the trailer, reading books that helped me escape Creek View, at least for a little while. Magical kingdoms, Russian love triangles, and the March sisters couldn't have been further away from the trailer park.

People please remember something to LOVE someone is a choice. YOU pick and choose who you want to love. That’s one of the many beautiful things about the spirit of GOD, and what an amazing privilege that is. Isn’t it funny how we don’t get to choose our parents but we get to choose everything else. Take a moment to reflect on just what this means. A lot of US (👉🏼😐👈🏼) came from some very challenging backgrounds and broken homes. Hell maybe you didn’t grow up in a home at all 😞 whatever the case we didn’t get to choose. All of this equals ‼️TRAUMA‼️ @meekmill who knew life could be so cold when we were innocent and pure 🤔 hell ME GOTDAMMIT I DID👊🏼. I’m not saying it was the worst but it sure as hell wasn’t the best. Either way I didn’t get a choice and it wasn’t until I had already made so many mistakes that I realized I too had become what I was a product of and that was BROKENNESS 💔. I have carried this with me throughout my entire journey. How on earth could I EXPECT so much from anyone if I never knew it could be different and had not become AWARE. GOTDAMN/TRAUMA. We press peoples faces to the glass and expect broken people to love us UNCONDITIONALLY and WE too are BROKEN! I dare you expect perfection when the value of your heart is less than equipped to host that kind of love. YOU’RE SELFISH CHAYE(👉🏼😞👈🏼) this type of behavior leads us directly to our relationships demise. You take all of your shit into some new shit ruin that shit and carry on to the newest shit all to break that shit too 🤪 We lose track of the fact that the kind of RE LATION SHIP you CHOOSE to build with someone YOU ARE IN CONTROL. Everyone comes with their share of shit no one is Perfect to everyone. Deal with your shit and rid the vicious cycle of the destruction of unity and matrimony. BUT DONT YOU EVER BEG ANYONE TO LOVE YOU GOTDAMMIT‼️🌟 #selfcare#awareness#evolve#illmeetyouthere
This Rumi quote was on a brochure for @naropau back in 2001 when I applied to my graduate program. It lured me into that next step on my path back then, which opened me up to much of the life I now live. The quote has been here in my studio, on this piece of driftwood, ever since I graduated. I woke up on New Year’s day, not remembering any dreams, but with this quote in my head. I’m getting to know its message more deeply from where I am now, and I’m carrying this energy into the new year. I’ll meet you there.

My first book of the year: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
This one came to me from an hour long journey through my library’s selection of ebooks, and I’m so glad I found it. This book had so many layers that I found compelling and heartfelt. The characters felt real, and at times I felt like I was best friends with them because I had grown up with people just like them. If you’re looking for a book that will make you feel tingly in your heart but take your breath away with harsh truth and reality, I would definitely recommend this book. Such a great book to start the year off!
Its Been A Couple Weeks Since The Day I've Gotten My Blades. Well That SAME Day/Night I Thought I Was Just Breaking In My Blades & Since I Bladed Pretty Much All Day Going Here And There With A HORRIBLE Boot; I REALLY Messed Up My Ankle Due To A Malfunction In The Production Process. Although Its Wack That My Boot Messed Up B4 I Could Really Put Them To Use, I CAN SAY I Did Have A Great Night That Night Trying To Get Through The Pain. Getting Back At It Was Really Dope. With The Clothingline, School & Working Out When I Can. I Dont Have Much Time To Blade As Much As I'd Like. Its Cool. This Isn't My whole Session But Its What I Captured. Hey What Can I Say, Im Not A Camera / Editing Guy But Im Working At It Lol.
I Dont Do It For The Likes.I Do It To Keep My Ass/Goals In Check 🔥💯

#gotohell#illmeetyouthere#megadeth#hiddentreasures They've pulled my plug the picture fades
And as my body decays
Mold begins to fill my grave
The smell of death permeates
The silk within my coffin lays
Go to hell!
As they bury me now
Six feet there my body lies
Still feel like I'm going down
I hear a distant wailing cry
God something must've gone wrong
And much too late I realize
Go to hell!
I saw my funeral that day
I know who didn't show to mourn
My judgment was life in hell
Pillars of pain and thorns
My only friend's the goat
With 666 between his horns
Go to hell!
Place all your trust here in me
Rest assured these things I know
And as Charon sails the sea
Your journey too shall end below
Ah yes, you're all sitting ducks
It's true you reap what you sow
Go to hell!
Now I lay me down to sleep
Blah, blah, blah my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
I'll go to Hell for Heaven's sake
❝And maybe some people are like collages - no matter how broken or useless we felt, we were an essential part of the whole. We mattered.❞
- Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There
Finished I’ll Meet You There the other day and boy did I miss reading books like this one. It brought back my old self, that person who would willingly stay past her bed time just to finish a book, that old self who’s carefree and just find pure joy in reading. Sadly these days, I hardly have time and to be honest I am not as enthusiastic as before. So reading this one is such a breath of fresh air, it’s like the universe conspired for me to end up reading this book. .
I’ll Meet You There is an honest, beautiful and realistic story about two flawed characters trying to deal with their own demons. I love how the romance was played out well, it was a slow burn and just right. Full review on the blog!
Have you read this one? Can you recommend something like it? •••
OKAY WHO HAS READ the gentleman's guide to vice and virtue??
because it looks super fun and interesting and something I would totally love and it's been a while since I read a historical fiction novel (or tbh, anything not fantasy 😂), but I'm sort of on a book buying ban and I don't know if I should break my streak of control.
but I really want to read it.
I might just do it.
I mean I'm not thaaaaat obsessed with the cover I could just get the ebook.
BUT THE CRUSH'S NAME IS PERCY.
I am so weak.
also, finished the Dream Thieves and am starting Blue Lily, Lily Blue today (hopefully)!! whooo! ✨
hope you all have a nice Sunday 💛
Today is an exciting and special day for me because it's my one year anniversary on bookstagram. I'm going to call it "my bookstagramiversary"🎈 Exactly 365 days ago, I made one of the best decisions I have ever made and decided to make a bookstagram account. For this special occasion, I wrote a blog post on how bookstagram has changed me (link in bio). I didn't expect bookstagram to affect my life at all, but it definitely has. I don't think I will ever leave the bookstagram community. I just feel like this account is part of me and I love every second that I spend on here. Thank you for following and interacting with me, whether you've been here since the beginning or you just now stumbled upon my account ♡ #mybookstagramiversary

Have you ever been on a road trip? I haven't been on one in a few years but my longest road trip was when I was a teenager and my family drove to Canada for a week!!! Today's theme for #julywithcj is road trip books and I decided to feature I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios. I'm not actually sure that this is a road trip book since I haven't had a chance to read it yet but from the title it sounds like they at least travel in the book 😂😂😂!!! Have you read this yet? I love some of Heathers other books so I'm really excited to give this one a try!!!!
