When I deployed to Iraq for the first time in 2007, I remember rolling into a village with my company to meet one of the local sheikhs of a prominent village. It's common when you roll up, to draw notice from everyone, but especially the children who are curious about your intentions. But this one particular day, a little girl and two boys walked up to my teams Humvee right before we dismounted. I could tell immediately that she was a strong, fierce little lady (6-8yrs) because the boys kept trying to pull her back as she inched closer, but she was determined to make her position known. And this was regardless of the fact that we just pulled up in armored vehicles with personal weapons at the low-ready as we dismounted. None the less, when I got out, she approached me with a huge smile on her face and greeted me with "as salaam alaykum" (peace be unto you). I smiled, rubbed my heart and replied back, "wa-alaykum salaam". She had no shoes and her clothes were dirty and ridden with holes. Her little toes and feet were dry and had numerous scars and callouses. Despite that, her smile was gleaming bright as day. My initial thought was, "This poor baby could be my little sister." She pointed at my weapon and shrugged as to ask, "what's that for?" I pointed around the outside of the village and made a shooting gesture to portray enemy presence. She nodded, and then walked up to me and hugged my leg. She looked back up at me, smiling with those bright green eyes and said, "Love Amerikis". At that moment I wanted to cry, because it was pure love. Despite the language barrier and all the weaponized vehicles and personal weapons, she was open, vulnerable and full of love. I told her "Ameriki Love Iraq and Iraqis". I gave her a Double Chocolate Otis Spunkermeyer muffin and my last Orange Gatorade. Her name, probably not spelled this way was Soriya. I'm sure I'll never see her again, but that moment lives with me forever as I always tell myself; Smile, because life and love is beautiful even in the most random of moments and places. So today, along with this story, I share with you a smile. Be great today, Have a great day, and if no one has told you yet, I love you! 🌞

I like to puff while I plank. 🌬
I always start my mornings with yoga & meditation 🧘🏽♀️ it helps align everything from my spine to my chakras to my mind.
Stay tuned for my article about Cannabis and Yoga on @smokingsanctuary coming out Monday 1/22/18!
I fell in love with your words first. The way they echoed in my mind for days afterward.. reverberating through my soul, transforming me.
Then you spoke to me.. Your voice, your passion encapsulated my essence. You captured me; heart, mind, and soul I was yours. Your vulnerability set my own passions ablaze.
Then the truth set us both free when our hearts collided and the moments happened..
Passing and fleeting they are powerful nonetheless.
