“If you can read you’re never truly alone.”

We live in a time where flaws are to be hidden, mistakes forgotten and pain concealed. Our thoughts and imaginations and ambitions are overshadowed by appearances: the facades we plaster to our beings with cake makeup faces and false friends meant to disguise our true selves. So now more than ever we need to read. Our hours are riddled with technology and texting and multitasking. We have shortened attention spans that just worry, worry, worry and because we hear so often how we’re different or disappointing or less attractive or better or wore than everyone else, few people stop to realize we’re all really the same.

It seems everyone is under the impression that it’s so taboo to think these days. We’ve build the internet as a mecca of self expression and yet it’s frowned upon to express your opinions and beliefs in daily conversation. It can be an isolating feeling but…

My work, my hope, my love, my courage, all these things keep my head above water and keep me from complaining.
I'm an orphan and an ailurophile. I live in the jungle, mythical creatures &fairies are my family. I am no longer afraid of becoming lost, because the journey back always reveals something new and that is ultimately good for the soul.
If there’s just one piece of advice I can give you, it’s this - When there’s something you really want, fight for it, don’t give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you’ve lost hope, ask yourself if 10 years from now, you’re gonna wish you gave it just one more shot.Because the best things in life, they don’t come free.

Life story:

"I was born to a woman I never knew and raised by another who took in orphans. I do not know my background, my lineage, my biological or cultural heritage. But when I meet someone new, I treat them with respect…. For after all, they could be my people." - James Michener, Author.
