Let the wind blow through your hair. Don’t worry if it gets tangled and wild.
Let the rain get you wet. Don’t care if it seeps into your shoes.
Let yourself be late. Don’t frazzle about what you can’t change.
Let yourself mispronounce a word. Don’t judge yourself for your mistakes.
Let your tears roll down your cheeks. Don’t hold back from what you feel.
Let yourself snort when you laugh. Don’t worry about who is looking.
Let yourself get some mustard across your face. Don’t be embarrassed at such simple things.
Let your life be. Let yourself be. As things are. As you are. This doesn’t mean cross your arms and do nothing while life passes you by, it means don’t resist what is, but rather, make the best of it.
About me pages always make my mind go blank, which is ironic because there's really so much to say. I guess what stumps me is where do I start?
Here are the basics: They named me Laura. They, meaning my parents, who were never married but mingled in 1988 in the country of Brazil, where little me was born.
I grew up in New York City among a melting pot of cultures, smells, and hustle.
I've learned to be a go-getter, thinker, intuitive, lover of life, peace maker, and coffee enthusiast - among other things.
I like to write. I've been keeping a journal since my early teenage years. I created Reflect Out Loud to simply share whatever is on my mind in whatever style that comes up for me. I try to let whatever I put out here be free flowing. I simply want to share my thoughts out in the open.
But to simplify this about me: I am a human, having a human experience. I have a story, just like you have a story. And some of that story you'll see here.
Um... I guess that's pretty much all I have for now.
