Some Makeup Appreciation

Playing around with makeup before my little cousin’s Quinceñera. I’ve decided that I have way too much makeup to not use it regularly. I need to find a way to convince my sisters to let me practice new looks on them. You would think they’d be all down to get their makeup done, but whenever I want to they are too lazy to let me! LOL

I guess I just need to start practicing new looks on myself. Just do it Jessica! That’s what everyone always tells me! I guess I’m a little lazy too!!! HAHA

Solar Eclipse

On Monday the American Solar Eclipse happened. I was at work because I didn’t plan out an event to go to for that day. I don’t know why I didn’t think to make a day out of it. I saw many people go to a park and basically have a nice picnic and watch the solar eclipse happen. Now as you can probably see, it was very cloudy on this day. which at first seemed like maybe we wouldn’t be able to see the eclipse, but if you had the glasses then chances are you saw the eclipse. So where did I see the eclipse? I saw it at work during my lunch hour. Luckily I work at a university so there was plenty of lawn space everywhere. Lucky me! Anyway, I don’t know why but this picture looks amazing to me! When I captured it I didn’t even notice the birds flying in the sky until I saw this picture! LOL

On this day I used my Animal Messenger cards to receive a message for the eclipse, I got Wild Boar, as you can see LOL. I found it really satisfying that this was my card, as I have been doing a lot of self healing to find who my true self is. Figuring out how to be my own person and have my own individuality. It’s taken me a long time to realize that for most of my life, I relied on someone else’s perception of me to define who I was. This is probably why many people have said I’ve changed throughout the years, because I was always changing myself to please someone else. How exhausting! this card was an affirmation that I am on the right track and that I have the universe and my Spirit guides approval!

Anyway, I hope you all had an amazing Solar Eclipse day!

Toxins & Knotting & Spasms, Oh My!

For those who know me, know that I've had back pain/problems for a long time now. When I was 17 my doctor told me I had scoliosis, what that meant was that my spine was not straight like it should be, instead it curved; and because of this, I suffer from back pain.

On my really bad days, my back starts to spasm and I am unable to stand up straight while walking. Thankfully, this has only happened around 3 times in my life.

I have been lucky enough to know a couple of body workers/massage therapist. And so I finally decided to get some work done on me for my crazy back pain. It was a pretty awesome experience. And! It was the first time I've ever had cupping done on me. Cupping is used to pull out toxins from your body, but man do they hurt like a b****! But only for the first two minutes or so- after that I didn't feel pain at all.

After, I felt so relaxed and chill. I will definitely keep up with bodywork, it's just so amazing & good for me! Check out the spots where all my toxins came out! I really feel like this is going to be a new obsession for me.

Shout out to my good friend Neale for hooking me up with such an amazing massage!

A Lack of Support Doesn’t Mean A Lack of Love

Yesterday I realized that not everyone in your life is going to understand the path you choose to follow in life, and even then, some of those people may even be your family. That’s ok! Sometimes the limits people put on themselves hold them back and there is not much you can say or push them to do to see otherwise. that doesn’t mean they don’t love you, I’ve made my peace with that.

For me, when it became sad and hurtful was when I realized that it could also mean that I will not be getting support from them. That’s when it becomes harder to be okay, but it’s not impossible to be okay because chances are you have other people in your life that support you. Sometimes when that happens you just have to accept that they may never fully support or understand you, love them anyway. Hold a positive vibration for them anyway. Be an example for them anyway. You can’t make everyone you love and care for see what you see, live how you live or be how you are.
