I Will See The Light

 

I have no feeling left inside

I live my life close to blind

But I walk the path I paved myself,

Strangling the devil with his lies

 

I am no fool for surprise

I count my blessings from the skies

Yet I cry myself to sleep at night,

Waiting for the day you come along

 

I can fight my own battles but I’d rather not

I have no fear for tomorrow, or at least I thought

I’m not one for wasting time

I’m just trying to live my life right

If I’m patient I will see the light

 

I light my fires with my hands

I trade my sorrows for “amen”s

I can’t tell the future,

but I know that it is full of plans

 

I can fight my own battles but I’d rather not

I have no fear for tomorrow, or at least I thought

I’m not one for wasting time

I’m just trying to live my life right

If I’m patient I will see the light

INSTINCT

insintct2 Bullhead-Madeline-01

Your surroundings can take you and shape you but there are parts of you that can never be moved.

There are pieces of you that run deeper than your DNA.
They are your blueprints and you can feel them.
Don’t ignore the feelings. Don’t let anyone’s picture of how you should exist take away from your true nature.

You are the only person who can decipher who you are.
Your instincts will guide you.
Follow them. Trust them. Act on them.

Take a chance on what you feel you are destined for.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a wild imagination. I would create my own worlds, write bizarro stories, make up my own songs, choreograph dances in my backyard, create different personas. I loved to create. I thought it was just how all people were. But the more I learn about the world the more I learn about myself and the facets of color that make me me.

And I’m trusting those parts of me enough to act on them.
I’m exploring the root of myself.

I remember the moment I wrote my first song with my guitar.
It was such a release.
It wasn’t like I learned something new, it was like I was accessing a part of me that was always there. So I pushed it, I explored it and the deeper I got into it the closer I felt to my core.
Learning guitar and writing music was not me re-creating myself. It was me finally discovering myself. I followed my instincts.

 

Your instincts are a gift. Use them to do that thing you’ve always wanted you’re supposed to do.
The person you’ve always desired to be IS who you are meant to be.

Don’t just trust your instincts, act on them.

It’s getting cooler here in the mountains and jean season is extending her hand to greet us. I’m excited to try out different colors and patterns in my pants this year and am already getting there with these Plum Jeans from PacSun.

They have a TON of options for fall, and they fit all day.
See for yourself: #BullHead pants

ARE YOU LIVING?

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetlevis-2Are you living?
I mean really LIVING.

I mean turning the things that inspire you into the things that you are. 

You honestly, truly, so sincerely have every right and ability to.
And not just you. Your best friend, your sibling, that guy you always see at the grocery store… they all have dreams too and need to know they can live them.

So what if you helped them?
What if we all started really LIVING.
What if people supported each other rather than silently competing?

We as people are not meant to conquer each other.
We as people are meant to build each other up. Because if everyone is building, the world will only get stronger and stronger.
But if people are destroying, the world has to clean up, and start over when it could be growing.

It seems rather counterproductive if you ask me.

All I know is happiness and really LIVING are tangible things and we should all live to help the people around us live.

There is a really great movement right now that pairs along just peachy with my ranting. It’s called #LiveInLevis and it’s all about really LIVING your one of a kind life. I’m all for this attitude and supporting brands that support people. I am proud to say I #LiveInLevis. Seriously. Click to see MY OUTFIT.

(UN)COMFORT ZONE

hm-madeline-3hm-madeline-1

Your comfort zone is an easy place to be.

It’s warm and it understands you.
It doesn’t ask for too much and it doesn’t make you worry.
It knows your favorite snacks, never forgets a birthday and always calls on Christmas.
It’s a lot like a grandparent really.
And you probably love your grandparents… but you’re not in love with them.
(bare with me)

All these things are nice to have, but they leave you wondering.
I know a place outside of wondering, with answers, with more.

It’s scary.
It’s unpredictable.
It  gets cold and lonely but it’s better.
It’s better because it’s not a dead end.
It has all the possibilities and  moments from your favorite movies.
It’s where you fall in love.
With someone, with yourself, with the world around you.
It’s where discoveries are made,
where love begins,
where friendships are born,
where lessons are learned and new things are tried.
It’s uncertainty renders questions and it’s questions render answers.

It is not comfortable.
It’s certainly not boring.
It’s life.

It’s worth being uncomfortable for.
Live in the uncomfort zone.
