A Dream Deferred

A Dream Deferred

Most days, when I get up to start my day, I remember my purpose -- remember my dreams and get to it, trying to bring them to fruition. But some days, I feel burdened down with adulting -- (you know the phrase) -- taking care of my responsibilities for the most part, which is important, but forgetting to tap in and see how I'm doing -- to see if I'm still on track with my dreams and purpose.

It's easy to push our dreams to the side, 'cause let's be honest, it's sometimes easier to do just that. This happens most often as we get older...

Reset & Reconnect

Reset & Reconnect

I had a (somewhat) "big birthday" a couple of weeks ago...and I always get in a state of reflection when my birthday arrives. But regardless of birthdays, I find that I tend to think about these things often, especially living here in Los Angeles.

We're constantly reminded that we should be hustling more and more. It surrounds us everywhere -- in every coffee shop, store, and with pretty much every person we meet. 

L.A. is a place where people come to chase their dreams -- or to help bring their dreams to fruition and make them a reality. So it's natural, in a way, that we -- Angelenos -- would have that mindset. But I'm beginning to fully realize that that particular mindset isn't necessarily healthy to have on a constant basis.
