Come one, come all.

City Bakery (located on 18th street b/w 5th and 6th aves) has been known for hot chocolate for some time apparently, and I was completely out of the loop until Tineey emailed me an image of their Hot Chocolate Festival calendar. A gigantic homemade marshmallow (was there even such thing?) hot-tubbing in a melted pool of chocolate on a cold, rainy day sounded comparable to heaven.

Oh, hello there, pretzel croissant. Yes, the salty, endlessly chewable goodness of a pretzel covered in the flaky, buttery shell of a croissant.

That gigantic marshmallow is homemade, and before this trip I didn’t even know that was possible. What is it, organic? who knows… Give it a few minutes, don’t forget to grab a spoon and it starts tumbling like a melting glacier. Pretty soon you’ve got chocolate soup and there’s no point in pretending that you’ll be able to drink it. Spoon and sip, young grasshopper. That’s the only way you’re getting this in your system.

Six months ago I was standing here - hot, sweaty, thirsty, hungry, exhausted, bothered by the hoards of people pushing me to get through for their shot inside the #Colosseum. I forgot for a moment where I was and more importantly why I was there.

It's not always easy, but it's most definitely worth it. Live a life that's worth the trouble. ?
I've found that those who work hard are motivated by the people who made sacrifices to provide for them, or the people they need to make sacrifices for. 
You see, that's what makes us different - that's what makes you strong. There are people who have been spoon-fed all their lives and thus have no clue as to what makes them happy. There's no drive. How can money motivate you if you've already got it?

You have no control over how you were born, or how you were raised, but you do have control over your perspective. You'll come to see that everything you think happened to you was actually happening FOR you. ?

So what motivates you?
The older I get the more I realize that nothing will ever go according to your plan. Every time I feel like I'm headed somewhere, I'm knocked into a different direction wondering where the h - ll I'm going next. It just isn't enough to feel completely secure about your future if you're constantly doubting yourself. I have no idea where I'm going to end up or how I'm going to get there, but I'm moving. Slowly, maybe, but with passion, conviction - and with a dream worth more to me than the empty riches of this world. You'll make mistakes and you'll learn from them. You'll think you've failed and realize it was meant to be that way. You'll love and lose, someone or everything all at once.

But at the end of it all, you'll realize that everything will be okay. ?
I don't want to be perfect. I want to be just as I am.

Don't be afraid to walk away from something or someone that holds you back from becoming the person you want to be.

The seasons are changing. So can you. ?
While the rest lay easy, withering away - you're still standing, shining brighter than ever.

Your scars are what makes you beautiful. ?
Allow the world to remind you of how beautiful the life you live can be. ?

Dream with the dreamers and invent things you never knew you had in you. Think with the thinkers and discover ideas that mold who you are. Smile at strangers and make friends that last a life time. Travel with travelers and explore a life beyond your imagination. Love only one and grow old with your best friend. Let these things bring fire to your soul, so when you look back at your life, you'll have no regrets and you can leave this place a little better than when you found it. - @rmdrk

Get out of your head and get out in this world. It's waiting for you.

Last night I joined my sister @amy_marietta to celebrate genuine people & the launch of an amazing skincare brand @rescueskin at the #rescuepopup. It's nights like these that remind me to keep pushing. Hard work pays off. ?
