I love a good party shot - these two and their crew definitely knew how to party! So tell me, what’s your fave NYC bar or club? This granny is asking in the name of research :) I hope everyone is having a killer weekend!

Fear is undoubtedly one of the largest playing factors in why people choose to stay right where they are. Fear of what they’ll do wrong, or what they might be giving up. Fear of what may happen, or what won’t. All this insecurity about the future that keeps us from living in the present, and keeps us upset, angry or disappointed in the way the past has got us to this state. And then you hear the ole “whoever said life was fair?” So you kind of adopt this bitter, half-dealing way of looking at what a truly miraculous gift life is. When I look back on myself, I see a lot of myself that - at that time - I couldn’t see at all. And so I look back with a half-remembered version of things, myself now completely distanced from the person I was but somehow rubber-banded to the body I’m in. And at times it makes me laugh, and really ache. “How could I do that?” as I grimace and shake my head looking through memories, “what could possess someone to see the world that way?” Whether we know it or not, we’re on a journey of self-discovery through the art of progression, and moving forward is always progress but how much of it we allow ourselves to experience is left entirely up to whether or not we are willing. Not confident. Not many but the legends we make up in our minds do anything with complete fearlessness, blind faith doesn’t mean I go into things strongly or fearless - sometimes choosing to go forward can look like a broken heap of bones and flesh, bruised and burdened... but as you scrape from the floor forward you can see that there is a past and that you’re headed somewhere away from it. How you carry it is a reflection of your character. It isn’t always deeply emotional, or major in the ways some might think those terms apply. Sometimes the simplest, smallest and most broken steps forward are the biggest acts of courage. And some might smirk or brush you off, say “get on with it!” your struggle is yours and there’s a reason you’re gifted it.
