Life is the single most daunting task we will ever go about doing. It's easy to fall into pessimistic cliches and believe in the snowball effect or the saying that when it rains it pours. The realistic fact of life is sometimes waking up just isn't easy. It has this crazy way of knocking you down, and when you're most vulnerable, kicking you harder. I would be lying if I told you there was a sure-fire bomb-proof way to combat this internal dilemma boiling over from time to time within everyone. There just isn't some magical potion you can drink from the mountains of Tibet that melt all the worries of the world away. There is however, something you can do to remain calm during stressful times, overcome every single one of your fears, and surpass even unimaginable goals
To reach your full potential, wake up everyday and tell yourself today will be a good day.
If it plays out and it is not, do not back down, keep your head up, and your shoulders back, YOU completely control your destiny. How you respond to the world is how it will respond to you.
Make your bed, brush your teeth, take a shower, maybe drink some coffee and grab a muffin, it doesn't matter. Your daily routine is not as important as your daily outlook. In times of turmoil, and believe me, there will be some, Andy Grammer tells us to "Keep Your Head Up". No matter your background, identity, profession, your life will never be served to you on a silver platter. Part of what makes life so awe inspiring is the powerful and dynamic relationships you will develop with people in your life overcoming the hardships of just existing together. Be a glass half full kind of person, Someone who eats dessert first, and loves like every day is your last one on earth. Andy Grammer says in difficult times to keep pushing forward toward your goals, and frankly, I think he's preaching to the choir. Cook up that full package of bacon, drop those chocolate chips into the pancake batter, and enjoy every day for the rest of your life.
Until Next week,

About the Curator - Jesse Simons
If there is one thing in all of existence that can possibly perk Jesse up more than a fresh dark roast coursing through his veins, it’s philanthropy work. His drive and passion for helping those in need is what he believes refines him the most as a strong, confident character.
Constantly inviting challenges to solve, you’ll be “cold pressed”, (caffeine is clearly essential), to find another person who looks as dashingly good looking in both a freshly pressed suit, and the same pair of sweatpants he’s put off washing from a few too many evenings couch surfing.
Jesse’s love for all genres of music started when he realized the power of music in the human experience. He believes each musician is the creative equivalent of a tectonic plate fault line. When musicians spread their art into the world, that fault line shifts, sending waves of raw emotion pouring from the track into the individuals absorbing it. Jesse came to the understanding that musicians weren’t just imperative to the human experience, they ARE the human experience.
From that day forward he has done everything in his power to help artists of all backgrounds and sound, spread their craft.
