15.  What are your words to live by?

To share and give, to have gratitude and receive. To embrace challenges, learn from fear but not be paralyzed by it. To be free in spirit. To love nature. To live life to the fullest and feel good, to laugh with family and friends, to be open to strangers and be wary of bad vibes. To see the good in people, and be surrounded by beautiful people inside and out. To be awake in my creative dream, to rest when I sleep. To play and explore. To be. I believe we all inherently have love and peace inside, just some people get dealt a tough hand. People feel the weight of life, so it’s important to help lighten people’s load when we can. I believe it’s good to ask each other why we are here, what are we here for? It’s ok to not know, life is for asking questions and finding answers. My words to live by are always changing. Love is always with me, even when I don’t recognize it. Gratitude is a gift to me.
