    It saddens me to say, that today I learned of the passing of someone who could no longer cope with this life. This is someone who I met a few years back and though I never got to know all that well, would always come say hello when I was gigging down south and would sit to have a beer and chat when he could. He even tried to help me gets gigs for which I’m extremely grateful. Over the years, I have watched a handful of people I knew leave us far too early under the same circumstances. This particular occurrence has reminding me of a couple things. Firstly, that life is not always easy and that many people are struggling with things that most would not know about. I myself have battled with mental illness and can assure you that it is not easily overcome. Secondly, it has reminded me of a song I started approximately three years ago, the last time I heard that we lost someone close. I struggled to finish it, however. I could only come up with a chorus and an instrumental part that I was happy with, but could not figure out the rest of the song. So, I set it aside. With today’s news, I eerily started singing that chorus and within a half hour or so, had the rest of the song written. I did some digging and found the video I did of the instrumental part which is what you are hearing. The song is called ‘Those Departed’ and is now complete. Never assume that someone is all right even though they look it and look out for one another...💛

    💫Tribute to my friend 🍋

Raising a large glass of limoncello tonight to my dear friend who lost her battle today 💔 
So ironic that she passed when I was in her fave place, she raved about Sorrento and couldn’t wait for me to go, I loved listening to her memories of this place knowing that she would never get the chance to go again. 
She would talk about limoncello all the time, so Lella my friend this is for you 💕

    #Morning🧡

我們永遠無法掌控別人的反應,

但卻可以掌握自己付出的能力,

先求盡心盡力再期待別人注意,

擁有實力的你別害怕被人看輕。

    Soapbox moment! I never have these publicly but I am right this moment!!!!!Ok so I am gonna have a very real moment! 
Parents..... you should have a realty check with your child if they go to school and make fun of another child for how they are dressed and I mean this with every fiber in me. Not every family is like yours or anyone else's for that matter. I mean for reals though I dont give a crap if your kid shows up in a tux or a potato sack. Teach them to show respect maybe they like it or maybe that's all they have. With that being said.....
My child was so excited when his tux came for the pageant....the first words out of his mouth were can I please wear this the last day of school. My response was heck yeah you can. Because why the heck not?!?!?!
But then my child who was beyond pumped this morning for his last day of 3rd grade dressed in his absolute best came home so sad because other kids wanted to make fun of him.
I looked into his handsome eyes and told him something I hope he will carry with him forever and perhaps each one of you as well.
People who judge you by what you wear, where you live or what you drive are not people you want in your life. You keep being who you are, do NOT let other people define you or change you. 
I know that not everyone thinks that because I was in a pageant or Queen was cool but that doesn't begin to change what I feel is important nor should you. The next time someone decides to tell you who you should be, how you should dress, where you should live or what you should drive. Stop look them in the eyes and tell them this. 
I sorry you are not ok with who you are. I hope someday you love yourself and others to be ok with YOU and walk away!!!
I love that my son is his own person, he is what makes him so incredibly EPIC!
Conformity is overrated!
My kid knows not to judge other people because he is taught, just say'n!

    Your girl been trying a thing with clean eating and let me just say..it is about time! For years on top of years I would lose weight, put it back on with interest added and carry that cycle for another trip around the mountain. But I got tired. Tired of not sticking to my diets and quick fix exercise routines. Tired of fooling myself into thinking that once I looked good, that it was all good.
▫️
And when I think about it, that has been me in every area of my life. Once it looked well put together to the eye, it didn't matter the hurt, resentment or unmet expectation that was rotting below the surface. As far as I was concerned, it was right where it belonged because no one could see it.
▫️
What a lie. It was all a lie..because they carried a stench. One that would permeate my thoughts and frustrations towards myself, my response to day to day situations and scenarios and expose my true state through my reactions when life didn't feel as though it was going my way.
▫️
I share that to say that sometimes we are trying to remedy something on the surface that needs to be tackled from the root. And for me, I had to come to a place where I owned my emotions instead of burying them. Where I was able to say, Reese you feeling some type of way and that's ok. To not only acknowledge the emotion, but to confront and actually work through it instead of trying to convince myself that it shouldn't even be there.
▫️
And although it has nothing to do with what I was actually feeding my body, it had everything to do with the care and attention that I was giving to my soul. It was there that I stumbled on my breakthrough 🙋🏽‍♀️
▫️
I want the same thing for you. That you would be more mindful and intentional in what you feed YOUR soul and that having been faithful in the little things for a time, you too would reap the benefits of perseverance as you blossom and bloom, grow and glow 🙏🏽💕
