Celebrate Life

Happy Birthday, My Love!

May He grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans! - Psalm 20:4

This man just turned 23 today and we are so happy to celebrate another fruitful and blessed year of his life. I have already told him my prayers and I only hope all the best for this man. He is such a blessing not only to me but to the people around him. A man who stands firm in the faith of God.

I spent my weekend with him and we had a movie marathon. We will be celebrating his birthday later and we planned to go to The Nook in Maginhawa Street. It is his birthday but he wants to drag me to that place to feed my fangirling. Patrick is not my just a lover, he is also and more of my best friend! And one of the most wonderful part of being his girl is that I can always talk about God with him. He’s everything I prayed for a man. I love every bits and pieces of his character. And I will always be right here to support him, love him and help him grow to be the man God wants him to be. ♥

On 10 December 2015, you came into this world with 7 other brothers and sisters in a living room in Georgia. Your litter was an accident, but definitely a happy one.
Since being in my life from March, you’ve brought me so much joy and have given me a reason to carry on with my life. You were the best decision I ever made, even if we didn’t click right away like so many people expected us to. I had so many second thoughts about you, but I shouldn’t have. I love you so much; happy birthday, Regulus

My Weakness is My Strength.

I don’t think much of anyone likes being vulnerable.
Speaking for myself however, I am quite accustomed to it.

But let me make something clear.
Being gender variant, non-binary, queer
or even the fact that I was born with a traditional “male” body type
but wear many traditional “female” fashions such as the outfit above…..
none of these things are what make me vulnerable.

I am vulnerable because I am openly & wholeheartedly myself.

I know that through a simple tumblr post, it might seem as if I make being yourself oh so easy. The truth is that I pay a very high price for my uncompromised freedom of expression.

Everything from my personal safety to the chance at a successful career is compromised by my decision to follow my heart, instead of following the crowd. However, this is really only the beginning of my sacrifice.

As my blog progresses and the number of individuals that are inspired by my personal freedom continues to grow, I must really think about the sacrifices I have had to make and will have to make in order to be so… free.

That is the purpose of this blog post.
To make everyone aware that personal freedom is as much of a blessing as it is a curse.

I will forever and always aspire to inspire the individual in humanity by being an example of a true individual. But I am choosing to also be transparent of the hardships that come along with the great adventures and satisfaction of my personal freedom. I feel it is the right thing to do, for by my mother, my teachers and my idols I was blindly taught to always be myself, but no one cared to mention the cost I would have to pay or the sacrifice I would be required to make.

I do not want to blindly lead the people who look up to me.
I want to inspire a kind of personal freedom that is not only fabulous,
But strong, courageous, truthful & positively life changing.

I worked extra hard on this photo set because I wanted it to catch the attention of all the amazing followers I have out there.
I love and appreciate all of you so much. Your messages and comments are the only thing that saves me from giving up because its easy to give up on myself, but I could never, ever give up on all of you.
Xoxo

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Lionel ‘Leo’ Messi is marking his son’s first birthday (2 November) by promoting child survival. The Leo & Thiago Messi Celebrate Life campaign asks friends and fans worldwide to help raise awareness about the importance of giving all children an equal chance to survive. Despite sharp reductions in child deaths since 1990, 18,000 children under 5 still die each day from mainly preventable causes.

Last night I had the absolute and wonderful joy of performing with the UCB Harold team LANDLORD on a very special day, the anniversary of the last day that Santina Muha walked. Since day one with Landlord I have loved performing with this team because everyone was instantly supportive as if we’d been friends long since being put together by UCB however last night I was lucky enough to be part of one of the biggest and coolest supportive gestures to celebrate life and the triumphant spirit of one person to overcome their adversity and pursue their dreams and succeed in doing so!!! Much love to Santina and showing us how to live life to it’s fullest no matter what happens to change your path towards your dreams. Lucky to be friends with everyone on LANDLORD Devin Field​ Blake Hogue​ Beth Lepley​ Santina Muha​ Timm Sharp​ Jonny Svarzbein​ Jacob Lawrence Wysocki​.

It's been so long.

It’s been a long time since my grandma passed, at 19 was when i decided to get a memorial dedicated to her passing and also to her life. Yesterday after 5 years that tattoo that I got for her is finally completed and I couldn’t be more happy to have it done and also to have even more closer about her passing. She was an amazing women and she will always be my guardian angel <3 RIP Evelyn 1943-2003
