I am filled with tremendous love now. I feel this energy flow through my being. I feel this pure love radiating from me. I feel excitement and joyfulness flood in.
I smile.Giggling with delight. All encompassing, I am embracing all that I am. I am coming from the heart. I always have, and I always will, love you just as you are. I feel peaceful as the tides of emotion subside. I feel calm. Relaxed in this moment. My mind is quiet. I am internally still. I am allowing my heart to lead me home.
Have standards and take relentless action 🤟🏽👨🏻💻🍃
Action originates from beliefs. So what do you believe? What are your values? What do you want from life? What are your standards for the world that you live in and the life that you live?
This applies to so many fields, and I want to remind us all to check what our values and standards are. If we don’t have values and standards, then we are going to accept anything. On the other hand, if you have standards, you know what the goal is, then it is just a matter of action and time.
Stop accepting just anything and start working/building/living for something meaningful. We can’t just live in the suffering that we have been given. We can / will / must create our realities 🙏🏽💓📣

“Don’t strive to be perfect or above another. Strive to be good, and become an evolved version of yourself for the purpose of your own betterment. Moths, while similar in form to the butterfly, can navigate the darkness ideally because of their carefully formed feathered antenna. Not for the sole purpose of looking more exotic, but for functionality being most beneficial during nocturnal hours. Become more of yourself, for yourself.”
Stars are ✨powerful✨. Our sun is a star, for example. It’s a powerful hot ball of glowing gasses. It’s the most powerful thing in our sky. It provides electricity through solar panels that can power an entire house! So when you think you feel small, remember you are like the sun. You have a powerful glowing center of magnificent light within you. And your power can light up the world! ☀️ Jennifer
Hi guys, so I’m back after a little bit of a break. It wasn’t exactly planned; I just didn’t realize how much time it would take to really get used to this new situation. There have been all kinds of new obstacles and I’m just glad to be in a more comfortable place right now.
I wanted to offer some new, original content here, as I realized we have a lot of time right now. But all that free time has kind of become a double-edged sword for me. While I’m here with my family, I noticed I’ve been having moments of pretty bad anxiety and hopelessness. Whether it’s missing friends or wishing I could do more or longing for a deeper connection, these feelings have been coming in waves all throughout social distancing and quarantining.
I think part of it is because we’re out of a normal schedule, one that usually distracts us. Now, I’m feeling like I have no purpose as I’m stuck at home, and it can be a pretty scary feeling. I wanted to reach out because, as a community focused on studying and academics, I’m sure many of us must be feeling this way as we live day by day.
Our purpose right now, and in life in general, can be anything. But we are here for a reason, and that’s to smile, live life, be happy. Do something every day that makes you happy. Maybe hang out with your pet or talk to a friend. You can go outside, appreciate nature, even have a dance party in your kitchen! Make yourself feel fulfilled each day.
Maybe your purpose can be to create, and delve into your art. We can all be creators as long as we make the effort. Whether it’s making music, painting, writing, or baking, putting something you’ve made out into the world is ground-breaking. Even if you keep it to yourself, you’ve used your hands, mind, skills to make something all of your own. I’ve found this an especially helpful purpose. On some days, I write thoughts or poetry in a journal before going to bed, and baking has been a fun new hobby I’ve picked up. When you’ve put your love out into the world in this way, the feeling of satisfaction is extraordinary.
Maybe your purpose is to learn and share. With all this time on our hands, why don’t we take the time to educate ourselves on topics we haven’t learned about before? Read an article a day about something new, pick up a new non-fiction read, or start a course in a topic of your choosing. Then, you can pass on what you’ve learned, even start a movement. You can start by telling someone one new thing you learned during the day or share an informative social media post. Spreading the word provides a purpose to all.
Maybe your purpose is to help others. We’re all going through a difficult time right now, and some more than others. Make sure your loved ones and friends can rely on you by sending them a quick message, make sure they’re okay. You can go out and volunteer if it is safe to do so for yourself and others you live with. Even put a donation out there for a worthy cause. A little step to help others can make a huge difference in their lives and make them feel as if they matter.
All of this sounds easier to do than it actually is. Finding the effort and energy to look for this purpose can feel pretty exhausting, especially when we’re stuck with our own thoughts during this time. But we have to live in the present moment and keep moving forward. Take everything one step at a time and applaud all your movements throughout the day. You made breakfast? Awesome! Watching some TV? Woohoo! Sent out that final email? Look at you! The biggest thing to ask yourself as you do something is “why am I doing this?” Most of the time you’ll have an answer, which means your action has purpose. And purpose is what fuels our passion and desire to be better people. You mean so much to other people, and your existence is proof that you matter. With every action in life, you are important.
“I tried to stop loving you so I built walls around my heart and found other names to whisper in the night. But you carved yourself into my veins whether you meant to or not. And sometimes I wonder if you remember the way we looked at each other or maybe you just forgot.”
