A VISUAL REFLECTION: BY STEPHANIE

I am really happy with where I am currently in life. It could be the Super Glue strain I am currently smoking or the energy in the air, but I have been reflecting on my past five years residing in Los Angeles and how far I have come since the little tiny 21 year old I showed up here as. I had no plan, I just knew where I wanted to end up.

As I have been going through many changes in life *cue in Tupac ‘Changes’ song here* I have began to reconnect with an unshakeable trust and faith in God’s plan for my life. Life has its ebbs and flows. That’s inevitable. Balance in life is important. Evolving as a human is a life long process. Success is not linear. Nothing worth having comes easy. That is what is beautiful and almost ironic about this all. I don’t want to say I have learned to care less, because I’m an incredibly caring person, but my trust in the God has continuously shown me my angels are ever-present. I no longer see anything as “falling apart.” I see things as “falling into place.” I find the beauty and the possibilities in whatever is thrown my way. My perspective of life has changed, and I can see and feel it within myself. I am solution focused, never wanting to wallow in a negative space. I now look at my flaws (not just physical) and giggle with them, sometimes we do have our moments though. I’ve hit a lot of my personal goals since I have moved to Los Angeles, but what sticks out to me the most is the evolution of my own mind. No milestone in my career or Louis Vuitton bag in my closet could replace the feeling of a wholesome soul.
