emmulate The Four Agreements:
1. Be impeccable with your word
2. Don't take anything personally
3. Don't make assumptions
4. Always do your best
All the resolutions I need for 2016 and beyond. Meditated heavy on this since I misplaced my headphones and couldn't listen to the usual long run podcasts. But the universe works in mysterious ways like that.
Pick up the book by Don Miguel Ruiz if you haven't already. Game changer.

emmulate They say that time's supposed to heal ya but I ain't done much healing. Hello. Can you hear me? I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be.
... sad Adele songs of heartbreak resonate most on gloomy days when the rain pitterpatters on your window and you can barely muster the energy to get up for a cup of coffee. #blanketburrito fo'evaz. 🌯

emmulate FIVE 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣5️⃣ HIGHLIGHTS:
1. Embracing who I am (for better or worse) and living my truths unapologetically. Cultivating honesty, authenticity, and integrity in every aspect of life.
2. Fulfilling all 2014 resolutions, albeit unintentionally.
3. Being in the motherland for grandpa's 89th birthday.
4. Moving back to the city of angels to pursue an entirely new career. Trusting that the universe would conspire to support me... and it has.
5. Realizing that I have the capacity to love as my mother loves- with patience, forgiveness, compassion and generosity. This gift is a rarity that deserves to be shared with the world.

emmulate It was gifts like these that helped me heal when I had my heart broken. The last few days/weeks have me feeling like I'm still in that healing process.
Let this be a reminder for the world as much as it's a reminder for myself. "The universe is always doing what's best for you." Lo qué será será.

emmulate Every pursuit, every exchange and every relationship in my life is aimed at cultivating my greatest core value: PEACE. I've realized that when I'm at peace, the magic of the universe flows on its own accord and incredible things happen. Continuously learning to trust in that splendor.

emmulate 8 years of watching sunrises+sunsets here (while sweating my face off) and I'm still awestruck every time.
If you're having a bad day, take a few deep breaths and think of 3 things you're grateful for. Never fails. Love and light to anyone who needs it. xx #EExLA

emmulate My girl @aphotochick sent me the sweetest note: "Your smiles in your pics always makes me feel like I need to smile more, lol. Whatever you're going through just keep smiling, love. xoxo."
