You’d think working at Disney would’ve taken away some of the magic for me & yet here I am. But let’s just say, I enjoy being a guest A LOT more than being a cast member ✨

Do you think we get a little bit scared to do something different because of how others might perceive it? Like,
🔥 “if I post this poem I wrote online, will my partner think I’ve lost it?”
🔥 “if I seek out a councillor, will my family think I’m depressed?”
🔥 “if I start pushing for environmental change, will my high school friends eye roll and/or unfollow me?”
I’ve noticed how caught up we get living in our own environments, to the point where we can’t escape them anymore. Does anyone remember that feeling of wanting to be a new version of yourself every time the school year started? I would always want to show up with a fresh haircut, new bag, new shoes, happier/more relaxed attitude etc. But only as a reinvention of myself, I’d never do those things mid week of the school season. And I think maybe we fall into the same trap as adults without realising. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We wait for the new year to promote our most desired changes. Or insist we’ve come back from travelling or some holiday with a new mental outlook. I just want to say don’t be scared to change yourself. Say something out of your ordinary to the world if you’re thinking it. Wear some glitter on your face today if you wanna. Join a campaign. Tell your mates you have anxiety. Go vegan for a week. Just do it today, and do it all without caring, because I just really guarantee no one else does.
(P.S. tell me what you’re up to as well, I live for the weird inspiration.)
Life is like a connect the dots picture. Sometimes it doesn't make sense as we are drawing it out but in the end each dot connects to make something beautiful.
●-----●-----●-----●-----●-----● Enjoy those big moments (the dots) and the journey in between them. They are leading you to the best pictures yet.
Peak cherry blossom time in Central Park. I love commuting through the park not only to see the flowers and trees, but also to see how people interact with them. I see kids acting drunk just with sheer excitement bar spring and beauty, high school kids laughing, couples canoodling, mothers with babies playing under the trees, older people reading and just looking around. The common thread is that everyone is so happy.

Going to the woods is going home - John Muir
Very excited, just one day to go till we leave for Yosemite, can’t wait!!!🌲🌲🌲
There is nothing better than spring. Absolutely nothing. It teaches you to be present, to love and appreciate fleeting moments of beauty, it rewards you for your patience after a long winter, and it is a reminder that even on the bleakest, coldest days, there was something warm and gorgeous and sunny hiding beneath the surface. It is also one of the two brief moments of the year when the air of nyc is more or less not stinky—in spring it can smell like viburnum and tulips and hyacinth, while around Christmas it smells like pine sap. The rest of the time, the city can be a real stinker.
