i don’t want to wait anymore, i’m tired of looking for answers
take me some place where there’s music and there’s laughter.
i don’t know if i’m scared of dying but i’m scared of living too fast, too slow, regret, remorse, hold on, oh no i”ve got to go.
there’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on and you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on
gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
can’t worry ’bout what’s behind you or what’s coming for you further up the road
i try not to hold on to what is gone, i try to do right what is wrong
i try to keep on keeping on
yeah i just keep on keeping on.

the other day as i was staring helplessly at the immensely long soup aisle, a woman approached me. she complimented me on my freckles in which i couldn’t help but respond with “i got it from my momma“. she politely laughed, and began to tell me how truly beautiful she thought freckles were, or as she called them “angel kisses”. after a lot of blushing on my behalf, we parted ways and i couldn’t help but feel great about my freckles. not that i was ever self conscious about them before but i felt like running out of the grocery store and yelling “I HAVE FRECKLES AND I”M PROUD!” i love my angel kisses and i think they are beautiful at any age.
it’s official…white is the new black, which means i’m in a lot of trouble considering my closet is about 85% black. zara has some great pieces to help brighten up my wardrobe and from what i saw online, i’ll take one of everything please.

yesterday as i scrolled through my phone i came across an article with the title “5 year old transgender”. guilty of my own ignorance i thought there was no way a child so young could be confused about their sexuality. i then clicked the link, read the article along with the touching video and became informed and inspired by 5 year old transgender child, ryland. his story exemplifies the love and support of a family, explaining ” we signed up as parents with no strings attached”. hillary and jeff whittington are the two proud parents of ryland. After what was thought to be a phase, they realized they were dealing with something much bigger. through professional help and self research they came to the conclusion that ryland was transgender. through their research they found a disturbing statistic… 41% of transgender people have attempted suicide due to lack of acceptance; the national average is 4.6 %. taking matters into their own hands their hope is that their voice will be heard and this world will become a more loving and accepting place. at birth ryland was declared female, now he is 6 years old and living a happy and healthy life as a brother, son and transgender child. watch their video below and help share their story.
