Forget is about a woman who reminisces about an abusive relationship and how she changes and moves on with her life. Because of such great feedback I’ve received on the video I’ve decided to release. I thought at first it might have been too strong of a subject but like the poem states “Reality needs exposure”. I felt I should practice my own words. Here’s a link to the actual poem FORGET
Enjoy and I would love to hear from you. If you have problems with the link below, try this FORGET poem
So many times we forget about the small experiences that give us joy and think only about the future or the past. I’ve done the same. We’re concerned about our bills, our home (rent/mortgage), expenses and yet time isn’t taken to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Enjoy life with friends, family, and many gratitudes because those memories are what life is about. Be blessed.
Hello Everyone! For those living in the United States, I hope your 4th of July was festive and joyful. It’s now the day after and thought I’d add a day after quote.
Love the passion Jason Silva has in his YouTube videos. Had to write a blog on this today because of this video. I see where it fits in life. Having to deal with routine, financial situations yet balancing the emotions of fighting through the garbage of earthly events and reaching an awakening. Check out his video and be blessed.

We fight our way through life and wonder why it’s not thriving. Beliefs, habits, and customs which no longer serve us. Yet, we push ahead with them hoping our lives will change. Life doesn’t change, we do. Acceptance and surrender. Today is a new day to start again. Sending blessings, gratitude, and joy.
