Taurus Me

Happy Birthday to all my Taurus friends! Over the years I’ve often been amazed at the amount of Taurans in my life; it’s like we connect in an uber special way. A special shout out to Angel, Nene, and Mama!

Before I continue, let me apologize if this blog is a little all over the place. I’m feeling oh-so-lazy on this beautiful Monday day; my brain is still on vacation mode, but I promised myself that I would write. And so here I am.

Today, as I went on my morning walk, I thought of the word ‘towards.’ I associate this word with ‘goals.’ I’ve never been one to think of myself as striving toward my goals as much as I see myself living a life instinctually. I trust and listen to my instincts/intuition. I pay attention to the ‘little voice.’

Every decision we make impacts our journey ahead. With every action there is a reaction. But it is not the reaction itself that matters but the way in which we choose to see the outcomes. Michael Jordan says it beautifully, “My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.”

I’d like to think that I go towards life and not the other way around. But if life does come toward me, I’ll surrender and embrace it all.

In honor of all the birthdays this month, this piece here is titled, “Piñata.” As kids, the memories, of us breaking birthday piñatas inspires it.

Celebrate, Strive, and Trust!
