"As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life, and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless." -- Rodney Yee
Life can be incredibly brief, yet our essence eternal. This concept is unique. Eight years ago I decided to grab life by the horns and live from three core beliefs, to live a life of purpose, love, and abundance. It's a daily practice and I don't always get it perfect, but it's become my way of life. Over the past year, an acquaintance's Facebook posts caught my attention. On the days I felt less-inspired, I turned to her wisdom-infused and radically honest posts. They always lifted me. Leslie Allison was her name, one that will never be forgotten. We met at a festival last summer and both called Houston our home.
Leslie lived life whole-heatedly, her positive attitude was infectious and she saw the good dwelling in everything. She often posted about looking within and living life to the fullest.
Prior to Leslie's death, she utilized Hootsuite (a social media scheduler) with several Facebook posts scheduled in advance. Though no longer in her body, her voice carries on. It gives me chills to visit her page and see that her affirmations are still rolling out while so many of her loved ones and friends are hurting. It's as if she is catching everyone in these little moments, in hopes to convey that her presence is timeless.
Here are some of her posts:
Thank you, Leslie. What a legacy, what a life!
