This week I had one of the most disturbing train rides of my life – and it changed my perspective on Black Lives Matter

"I spend the night replaying the whole scenario over and over again in my head. And realise that three words keep running through my mind. Three words that until I heard a 12-year-old black girl say aloud to her friends as they awaited the police I did not understand. Three words that are so little but mean so much.

" Black Lives Matter.

"I stop crying. I become resolute. I make a pact with myself to help the world become better for those kids. I make a pact with myself to spread this story like wildfire. I make a pact with myself to be an ally to that beautiful boy. It starts here.

"Before you read on make a pact with yourself to join me.

"Before you read on commit yourself to this cause.

"Before you read on openly admit that racism is alive and thriving in America.

"Before you read on promise yourself you will say the following three words ALOUD:

" Black Lives Matter."

Something entirely disturbing happened last night on my commute to rehearsal. It is a long tale. But one that is necessary to read and digest. I was sitting in the corner of the Red Line T closest to the conductor when a group of about eight black kids from the ages of 12-16 entered. I automatically noticed their presence because of how absolutely loud and rowdy they were being. Smiling to myself, because of how crazy they were all acting, I tu...

"Being hurt is a byproduct of being human. I very much doubt that there is anyone who has passed through the world without experiencing pain. The smartest are those who take the lessons with them so they don’t make the same mistake twice, and the strongest are the ones who learn and keep living with an open heart. The most admirable people are able to do both." ~M. J. Ross
It takes strength to be open, genuine, and vulnerable in relationships, especially after being hurt, but it's worth it. Here's why.

Bursts of solar material from the sun in this close-up captured on July 9-10 by our Solar Dynamics Observatory. The sun is composed of plasma, a gas in which the negative electrons move freely around the positive ions, forming a powerful mix of charged particles. Each burst of plasma licks out from the surface only to withdraw back into the active region – a dance commanded by complex magnetic forces above the sun. More:

If you are seriously planning on voting for Trump, please uncircle me.
In fact, please unfollow me on all social media and sever all lines of communication that we share.
He is unfit for the presidency and cannot be endorsed.

Exactly, +Alexeyeva Smith​! Anyone seriously considering voting for that divisive, narcissistic, racist, masochist is only showing me just how hateful they are.

Awww, Portlandia...

It’s known as a modern-day hub of progressivism, but its past is one of exclusion.

I've been described as "a sweetheart with a titanium core." 
...I like it.

And I love me a good adventure.

The basics
  • Personality:      ENFJ.
  • Zodiac Sign:     Aries.
  • Top Strengths:  Woo. Positivity. Maximizer. Relator. Includer.
  • Cannot live without: Chapstick.
  • Google Geek.
  • Sports freak: SteelerNation. Angels Baseball. LA Galaxy. LA Lakers. Creighton Bluejays. Oregon Ducks.
  • Team Beachbody Coach. [Team Radiance.]

The details
I smile at strangers, wave at Prius drivers, and hum to myself in the grocery store... okay, sometimes I dance in the aisles, too.

I like to post and re-share about news & current events, sports, science, health & fitness, education, cool On-Air Hangouts, Google stuff, music, and the law. 

I'm a sucker for inspirational and motivational quotes.

Me... me... me
I'm an independent, ambitious, and driven happy-go-lucky music junkie, sports addict, and recovering choco-holic who is easily entertained and wildly enthusiastic about life. I run 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons. I take pictures of my food. I want to bounce on a cloud. I'm addicted to all things Turbo. I can sweat it out with the best of 'em in a Bikram Yoga sesh. I believe naps do a body good.

I've discovered the Kindle app and ignited a passion for reading unlike any I can attest to as a child. School books/texts books are great, but reading for fun seems to be a whole new world that I thoroughly enjoy discovering.

I'm 34-years-old, and a consistently evolving work-in-progress. I love learning new things and meeting new people...maybe some day I'll figure out how to get paid to do those things.  For now, I'm enjoying my familyfriends- these amazing powerhouse couples with adorable babies and/or pets, hoping/wishing/praying that soon I'll be able to make sense of myself, my circumstances, my surroundings, and all the intriguing/interesting/weird/lovely people around me.

I'm single- never been married; don't have any kids. Praying for the epic love and partnership that songs are written about and movies are made of... but not entirely certain of what God has in store for me. Life is a journey, and I'm just along for the ride- buckled in tight for the ups and downs, enjoying the sights, and dancing to the sounds of of my own percussionist/drummer/pocket DJ (hahaa!). I have a unique perspective on life, right now. Please join me on my unwavering attempts to seek peace, serenity, and clarity - with a hint of sass and self-empowerment - as I attempt to survive the day-to-day challenges, overcome heartache and heartbreak, and live out my best life.

I'm an encourager; and a supporter. I sincerely believe the world is my oyster, and when the time is right, I plan on exploring as much of it as possible. I love people- hearing stories of triumph and overcoming the odds; being a witness to learning and growth; engaging the human spirit and connecting with others in productive, like-minded, and heart-felt ways. We are each resilient, strong, and beautiful in our own unique ways- I am inspired by individuals who recognize this, foster it, embrace it, and share their gifts/talents with the world.

So this is it... 2016 is in full swing! I am designating this year as my year to "Bloom." There is so much learning and growing, laughing and loving; working hard and playing hard to do....I'm ever-so-grateful that you're here! ♥ I couldn't make it through this part of my journey without you. Ready...? Here we go! Thank you for being along for the ride.

Quotes to live by:
"My life is my message." 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 
--Nelson Mandela.

"I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult." 
--E. B. White

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” 
--Albert Einstein.

"Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that once made you smile."
