When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at, change. Whatever you are going through right now, try seeing things from a different perspective. If you are upset with your acne/skin, try seeing it from the perspective of someone who has acne that is much worse, or see it from the perspective that acne is desirable or beautiful. If you are upset with school or work, try seeing things from the perspective of someone who has not had the opportunity to get an education or has been unemployed for a while. If you are chasing that designer handbag or car, try seeing it from the perspective of the billionaire who has material possessions but craves family and community. You have so much to be grateful for, you have so much opportunity, and you have so much potential. Whatever is bothering you, take a look at it from the side or upside down. You might be surprised that a frown can be a smile with such a simple switch.

Even when you take me off of the island, I find a wall that is basically an island. #junglegirl #justsayin

Notice how trees don’t even cling to all of their leaves. 🍁 Autumn is a reminder that it’s okay to let go of the old, and embrace the new. 💕
From my cats passing last week to changes in how I am standing up for what I believe in, to letting go of my need for control over the aspects of my life (grades, work, my appearance etc) the past month alone has been yet another push for me to let go of the things that aren’t helping me move forward. 🦋
I grew up with the fondest memories of exploring the Benbow historic inn with my little brother- swimming in the creek, picking up red-speckled leaves from the spongy green grass, watching the bats burst out of the hole under the bridge right as dusk poured into the valley. 🦇 The changes I have been going through as an adult have brought me back, here. To a place that as a child, I explored freely, I embraced everything yet controlled nothing. 🍃 Autumn and it’s changing colors and falling leaves are a reminder that it’s okay to follow suit, and a calling to do the same. 🍂 #letgo #embracechange #staycurious

✈️ Do you prefer window seats or aisle seats when flying? Honestly I always go for the window, but then regret it when the two people next to me are sleeping and I have to use the bathroom 😂 Most awkward moment of my window seat life- on an overnight flight I decided not to wake anyone up, so I monkeyed myself and climbed over two people. Used the bathroom with no line and it was #flawless. But then as I was climbing over these two sleeping people to get back to my window seat, this dude woke up and I was basically strataling him and his wife doing the splits across their laps. Lol sorry again whoever you random humans were 😂

Natural Beauty PSA: The 3 ways I am growing my hair without cutting it (yet)
Peppermint oil diluted and applied to my scalp before I shower (it’s been scientifically proven to stimulate hair growth!!) @Giovannicosmetics Shampoo & Conditioner (cruelty free, anti-frizz and split end protecting from @wholefoods!) Diet Rich in plant-based proteins and healthy fats like avocado and almonds! (If you don’t give your body the right nutrients, it will focus on keeping your organs alive because you don’t have the nutritional capacity to allot to ‘inessential’ things like hair nails and skin. I think of those things as essential, so give your body the beauty-building nutrition it needs!) #GiovanniCosmetics #GiovanniHairCare #brautypsa #hairgrowth #healthy #advice #ad

*in nature* “WHATS THE WIFI PASSWORD OUT HERE?”
*birds chirp*
*wind rustles the leaves*
*sunlight glimmers off the waterfall* ....
“IS THAT ALL ONE WORD?”
