I know a man whose name is Cliff. He is one of the most kind, wisdom-filled, grace-extending people I know. One day he said to me "Without a history, we are all illegitimate." History allows people to interact with one another in ways that seem normal to them. Wars, political decisions, immigration, abuse, love, relationships, upbringing, culture, these are some things that if each of us look back we can find has had a hand in shaping some part of our histories. What shapes us is not always given permission to do so, however, it's become a way of life - to accept the past and assimilate to it. Here's the thing, our histories although important and worthy of remembrance, do not have the right to dictate our futures. We have the capacity to chose to end negative patterns in our histories with our present and future decisions. Although illegitimate without a history, we are presented with a choice in this day to change toxic cycles, and ways of being, and living. We have the capacity to re-write our histories, understanding what wasn't right, forgiving, moving forward and taking up the good in order to believe in creating a new history to look back on of health and freedom. I'm about to disappear from social media again but wanted to leave you with this: rewrite your history friend and get people like Cliff in your life who can blow your mind with even a few words.
Visiting and playing with animals while traveling is always fun, BUT it’s important to know what you’re supporting when you pay to play. Some animal experiences (dolphin swims, elephant rides, tiger photos) are often run by programs that mistreat and drug the animals for tourist entertainment. However, places like @lonepinekoala work as sanctuaries to give happy lives to animals who cannot live in the wild. Research before visiting and support happy animals like this kangaroo!
I’ve always been drawn to the water. Most of my childhood was spent on a lake or hiking through creeks. While hiking, my favorite thing to come across is a stream or waterfall. In the warm months it is nearly impossible to keep me from sloshing through or plunging into it. Water baby through and through. 🌊

London Lumiere, the light walk, Jan 2018. Great to see London putting on experiences such as this!
It's not about the size of a 🏠, it's more about the location and surrounding of it. This one near the icelandic 🇮🇸 coast with a beautiful mountain in the backyard would be pretty awesome, right?! Who would also move in right away?
