-FF.FF- 2A. Happy and loving life. Really nothing to see here.

The other day I came across these words and it just hit home. One of those moments in life where timing just works. -Don’t fight the natural flow and progression of life. The world shouldn’t conform to your objectives and goals and that’s okay. The truth is you will grow apart, you will change, you will evolve as a man and a woman into someone you may not recognize in the future. As long as your heart is true- your loyalty and commitment unwavering, it’s okay to walk a different path in career, friends and personal relationships. Stay true to your values and to yourself- let the vibration and inconsistencies of toxicity derail themselves naturally and pursue greatness. The greatest gift you have within your control is your ability to stay true to who you are and who you will become. Thank you @mike.a.glover for that. Hopefully this reaches someone like it reached me. #life #neverquit #goals #pma #santabarbara #crusheverything #happy #ffff #gandolfhandoff #getafterit

Revisited my chains and cinder blocks today. Feeling my progress made me even more motivated. Everyday single day is a fucking challenge for me but I keep at it and give it 100%. I won’t quit. Again, this isn’t a “check me out bro”, It’s a possibility to motivate someone out there just like I’m motivated by certain people. I’m happy today. I’m fucking stoked. Thanks to @getkrakengravers @eddiemeat @bennybythegram @joshuacoburn for the constant motivation you bring. And to my stars, I wouldn’t be me without you. #love #happy #kickalltheass #santabarbara #fun #mindest #rockoutwithyourcockout #sunsoutbunsout #maybeshesbornwithit #suicidegirlshopeful #mystars #swastikalove #smile #goals #backyardclubbin #ffff #motivation #crusheverything #onlythebeginning

Success. Lugged that fucking bike 2 miles up and down the cliffs. I forgot about the tide. Hahaha. Changing the meet up time to 1pm every Tuesday. Pretty fucking bummed. Lost my new knife. A little bit of me died. #santabarbara #goletabeach #beachcleanup #beachclean #ucsb #jamoutwithyourclamout #sniffthewind #love #happy #gandolfhandoff #wherewasoprah #yougetabikeandyougetabikeandyougetabike #youallgetbikes #kershaw #boobs #tellyourchick #ffff #idfuckme #slappysalmon

Left: coming off 10+ years,bottle and more a day of vodka, drug use (disclaimer: I seldom used. I’d choose booze over drugs any day), eating like shit, severally depressed, and suicidal. No hope in sight. Didn’t want help. Right: asked for help. Sought help. Got help. Eating clean (er), working out and staying active. I’m happy. Life is fucking great. I feel great. - This isn’t a post to say “look at me”. It’s to show you that you can do anything you put your mind to. I didn’t want to be sad and depressed anymore. I didn’t want to wake up and put a gun in mouth anymore. I didn’t want to feel sorry for myself anymore. I didn’t want to be unhappy anymore. I wanted a change so I fucking changed it. - I choose to crush it now. I will continue with this journey. I’m gonna fuck shit up. I will reach my goals and leave that shit behind. I’m happy now and nobody will take that from me. I will go further and do it better. This is only the start. I’m here to fuck shit up. Thank you a million times over to @eddiemeat. Constant motivation and inspiration. Dude took his own personal time to help me with meals and work outs. As well as @bennybythegram all the same. I’m gonna fuck shit up. #santabarbara #happy #pma #ffff #crusheverything #nevergiveup #life #stoked #feels #grateful

Put my camera up to a bottle and I was like “ansel fucking Adams brochacho” and he was like “FU”. I’m a photographer now. And someone took a picture of me one time so that makes me an alt model. #tight #dj #producer #altmodel #fordmodels #pinupgirl #vintage #stfu #youstillgottadayjob #sotatted #ffff #getyourwhiteassinthepool #howthefuckyougonnastealahouse #photography #sarcasm #tellyourchick #suicidegirlshopeful #fakeittillyoumakeit #puppiesofinstagram #jamoutwithyourclamout #micdrop #fortheboys #smitten

Beautiful sunset tonight. For far too long I let so many things hold me down. I said fuck that some time ago and have been working hard ever since and haven’t looked back. Honestly, everyday is a struggle but I keep at it and push forward. I struggle with my personal demons and slip from time to time, but fuggit, I’m only human. Everyday I’m so fucking grateful for my friends and familia. Past and present. Something great is happening and I have to remind myself every single day that this all happens for a reason. Wake up everyday and give it 100%. Crush. Every. Fucking. Day. I’m happy today. I’m all smiles. I have the love. #happy #santabarbara #litaffam #pma #ffff #love #family #friends #lettinggo #comehomealready #latergram #lit #oprahsmybitch #tellyourchick #boobs #hotdogs #peppercorns #soooogood #crusheveryday #suckit #porvida #yeahitsanorganicacid #smiles #goodbye #isitmondayyet #happylife #suicidegirlshopeful #hansgruber
