Have you ever been with a group of other people that you have only met once or twice and you're a little out of your comfort zone. How do you feel? How do you make it so that your true self can come out?
The way I see it, is to embrace the present moment, even though it might seem strange that you're situated around people you have barely met, it's important to be grateful and still see the good in that very moment. A lot of times we think how "awkward" and different it is being in a new setting but remain in that positive state that you wish to carry out.
Being in a different city/country/school can also carry different energies and sometimes it can be hard to adapt to feeling comfortable. Again, just be present in the moment you are in. If you can pick up people's negative energies, bounce if off you by doing positive affirmations and know that you are infinitely safe and thinking only great thoughts.
I try to do this when I am in a new setting and it works a lot of the time!

If any of you guys are an avid watcher of Full House or was an avid watcher of Full House, there's one episode where Uncle Jessie teaches Michelle (the youngest one) about "perseverance." I saw a re-run of this episode not too long ago and that lesson really stuck with me.
Perseverance is defined as a steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., esp. in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. (According to dictionary.reference.com)
It's a word that reminds us to keep on going despite the circumstances we are in. I do realize that sometimes we get involved in a project or task in which it is so difficult to get the ball rolling or to keep on going and that's where perseverance kicks in.
It is really easy to give up and come up with a million excuses to why we are giving up, I've been there before and it is way easier to throw in the towel and hide under your bed covers. But! the best type of learners and leaders are the ones who put their pride aside and take out their passion and understanding that everything can't be so easy because then we'll never learn anything new. And part of the reason we were placed here on earth, is to learn. to grow, to experience and move forth.
As my 4th grade teacher once said, "You just got to keep on truckin!"

23 will be the age of renewal for me. I am not at that young age where I can waste away and do unproductive things anymore. I've really gotta buckle down and take that elbow grease out and figure things out for the future.
This is me putting my very best foot forward and trying new techniques to expand my little jewelry business (Sprinkim). I'm excited to test things out and figure out what works and what doesn't. Of course there are major kinks right now, but in due time, things will run smoothly.
Birthday's for me are like celebrating the New Year on January 1st. It's a time to reflect on the past and move on with the future. Most people are scared about moving forward, but I kinda like it (a lot!). It gives us a chance to experience cool things in a new light and broaden our horizons, meet new people that could change our lives and see what life is like in that moment.
Everyone has their moment of renewal and one day you will too! Just keep an optimistic mind and realize that everyone's different in their own way and that's okay.
So here's to my fellow Leo's! Enjoy!

Injustices are events that happen in our lives that which can occur through unfair treatment, immoral acts and/or favoritism. At times, we have no control over unfair treatment and sometimes we feel angry, we rebel and fight against it.
I think things like this happen for a reason, we all wish to believe that we are good people and others may not see it. But believe in your core self. Believe in your core values which are positive and optimistic. Don't let anyone shake you from the happiness you have instilled within yourself. Too many times, something unfortunate will happen to you but you must not base all of your emotions and happiness on that unfortunate matter.
I remember when I was younger, I was told not to be "too emotional" and I really disliked that phrase. It would have been better if I were told that it's okay to be emotional, just know when it's time to gather your thoughts and move forth. In reality, it's ok to cry, it's ok to feel betrayed and to hurt. Let those feeling out and have a really good cry. When you feel like you've let everything out, take a few deep breaths and channel that those energies into something that is good for you like starting on that project you've been putting off or starting that website you've always wanted to start.
The pain might still be there but just remember that there is no eternal happiness outside of yourself. All things will pass and in due time you will gain strength and learn an important lesson =)
