As a child, I carried a rebel-like personality at times. Not to be rude but because I felt the need to question or test the boundaries. Children are full of questions and curiosity and those are aspects I’d like to keep on my belt but oh the tongue. That thing for me added more than needed whoopings to my childhood. Ha.

Let’s just say that nonverbal expressions speak loud on me. Due to that I may change the vibe around me.

Don’t let perception cause barriers. Rather let it stiffen us with humbleness. Here’s a Widening(opening rather) View of a spot that my husband and I found. I just love the texture and color.
