Don’t worry about what the world wants from you, worry about what makes you come more alive. Because what the world really needs is people who are more alive. Your real job is to increase the color and zest of your life.” #LawrenceLeShan #Day36 #100daysofhappiness #cloudgame

Just one of the 3 gallery walls I was able to FINALLY create on #Day35 thanks to a day off from school! One of my favorite #johngreen quotes says it best: “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than the stories and people we’re quoting.” #100daysofhappiness #inspirationallaround #secretlywanttobeaninteriordesigner

#Day34 was a winner. Not only did its end begin my 5 DAY WEEKEND due to the Jamaican holiday Hero’s Day, it also taught me about so many aspects of Jamaican heritage. This little clip was taken during the music portion of the day (definitely the most fun). There’s nothing like seeing these kids open up, smile, and feel the happiness that I try and tell them they are worthy of β€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’› #peacecorpsjamaica #100daysofhappiness

It’s funny how life can make you so aware of time in one aspect of your life and make you forget it in another. I constantly feel the time Kyle and I are spending apart because of how drastically I miss him, but sometimes I lose site of how long we’ve actually been together, there for each other, and supporting each other. I’m not usually one for random month acknowledgements but today I’ll have to make an exception; because #Day33 marked 20 months that I’ve gotten to feel vastly more love than I had ever expected. We’ve been through so much together and I love that we always come out better and stronger than we were before. Months and months prior to my departure for the Peace Corps I got the typical, “so are you guys gonna break up?” question from all different sides and I don’t feel like I ever fully explained why we would stay “together” through this experience but I feel like this might describe it more clearly than I ever did; “Time wasn’t of the essence. It didn’t matter if you held my hand tomorrow, 6 months from now, 1 year from now, 2 years from now. I would wait forever for your hand to be entangled with mine again.” ❀️#100daysofhappiness #authorKL

Super Moon Magical Manifestation Mapping πŸ™Œ

||”My love is not a product of the world but a product of all the people I’ve met. And through everyone I’ve ever come across, I’ve discovered that our disconnect was never because of the insecurities we felt, but rather the emptiness we created when we failed to make sense of ourselves.”||

#Day30 took a few unexpected turns. Firstly, the internet has continued to eclipse itself from me and I am not appreciating this drawn out game of hide and seek. Secondly, I left for the market around 1:30 expecting a quick trip to top up on groceries and essentials. Instead, I met an ATM that has apparently been out of service all week which forced me to either return home or trek further forward into Lucea to get some must needed cash out. Once there I decided to begin my shopping at the local “grocery” store and that’s when it happened… I saw it… sitting inside the cooler doors. GOUDA CHEESE! So yes, one of the happiest parts of my day was finding this gem. @rachel_mattia can you guess what #amandabynes character I’m channeling right now? #100daysofhappiness #myfavoritesgouda β€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ˜½

"And I was born the moment I fell in love with the world, because I knew somewhere, someone like you existed in it." Quote dedicated to the over poured (by standards other than my own) glass of red in my hand. Also, the perfect detox bath to go along with it after an intense 1.5 hour #ashtanga yoga flow this afternoon. One of the best Friday nights I’ve had yet πŸ™Œ #Day29 #100daysofhappiness #rmdrake

Journaling has never been a consistent activity for me, until I came to Jamaica. Two of my favorite women (@clmmarinan & #noinstalinda ☺️) gave me these two journals to keep accounts of all the ins and outs of my life during this insane experience. I could not be more grateful because these books have been such a positive outlet for me and my busy thoughts. #Day28 #100daysofhappiness

How could getting to see this beautiful face not be the best part of my day? To say I’m proud of you doesn’t begin to cover it. I love you to Hogwarts and back baby sis and can’t wait to see you! I saw this quote and it reminded me of you. “We are the silver lining in any and every dark cloud we could ever find. There is no need to go looking for the light when you bring it with you.” Thank you for being a shining light in my life and such an inspiration to me everyday πŸ‘­πŸ’› #instalessem #wcw @nikswope  you’re mine too 😘 #Day27 #tylerknottgregson #100daysofhappiness
