“I’m finally in a position where I can say I’m the happiest I’ve ever
been. I’ve accomplished so much with so little and my smile is finally
not forced. I’ve taken control of my own life for the first time and
won’t ever let anyone silence me or my passions ever again. I’m finally
free. I’m successful. I’m independent. but most of all…I’m outspoken.
Don’t be afraid to seek help. There are so many people out there who
put their jobs first and their mental health last…and trust me…it
will creep up on you. There are so many amazing people out there who can
help with anxiety and other mental health issues…please don’t be
afraid and know that it gets better.”

Excerpt from Colton’s article for Paper Magazines’ Outspoken issue.
“When I was auditioning… they would send me the log lines of the character and if it said beautiful or gorgeous or pretty even they would delete it before they sent it me, because I would immediately call them and go ‘I will not be cast, It’s not going to happen!’ Not to put myself down or anything but I just always wanted to be a comedian.” [x]
I decided to go back and refill some of the blank pages in my journal. In this spread I did a little “notes” doodle (apparently I am still not ready to let go of Christmas 🎅🎄🎁) and also took some useful notes on the super helpful magazine by @roadmapplus (this was from their most recent issue no.7: habits). If you have not checked out their magazine or tumblr yet I highly recommend that you do. There stuff is so #aesthetic 👌and really high quality. 😊😊😊
