We Are Only A Moment

“Sometimes the heart is so heavy that we turn away from it and forget that its throbbing is the wisest message of life, a wordless message that says: LIVE. BE. MOVE. REJOICE – you are alive. Without the heart´s wise rhythm we could not exist.”

~Michael Jackson

Speaking to those closest to me the term “empath” has been thrown around a lot, yet I feel none of them really gets what that means. Sometimes I’m a victim of my environment because of the hopes I have for everyone in my life. That can quickly turn into a negative, depending on their emotions. That’s harder than people on the outside looking in can fathom. My mother often says, “Don’t borrow the troubles of the ones you love because it’s toxic.” As much as we all know this to be true in our daily lives, some of us cannot decipher our own emotions from the person beside us and it causes us to lash out.


Have you ever walked into a room and wondered why you suddenly felt drained, angry, sad, etc.?

I find that I have a tendency to take on the feelings of a collective room, which is why I have grown very particular about who I spend time with down to the people I choose to text regularly. Everything is energy. Everything reacts to energy. Every move you make, sound you utter, and feeling you give off is energy. The more aware you become of that energy, the more you find yourself clearing your phone of contacts and concerning yourself with minuscule things. With that said…


Don’t get lost in the news. Don’t get lost in your schooling. Don’t get lost in your job, your work, your career, your routine.

A lot of what we witness and what we see is created. It’s created to suppress, oppress, and depress each of us, divide us, and steal our idea of peace and oneness. Now, don’t you say, “Oh, seriously? You hippie.” Dude, I’m far from whatever your idea of hippie is. Haha. I’m simply well-educated and overly curious. My people always say, “You have the curiosity of a child and the wisdom of an ancient @$$ lady”. I question a million & one things I see, hear, notice, and it’s all brought me to this very naked, honest, absolute truth.

We are only a moment.

We should never feel it is “normal” to spend our moments in distress. There will be ups and downs, always, but why should we add to it? Why shouldn’t we spend time alone when we feel like it? Why shouldn’t we say no to the club that night just because you don’t feel like it? Why shouldn’t we eat that cookie dough ice cream because we feel like it? You see where I’m going with this? We need to feel more and think less, but don’t allow our feelings to get so bogged down in the harsh realities we don’t even contribute to. I’m not saying turn your back on the world, but I am saying FILTER. Just like they let you filter on a fashion site and on world news blogs. Filter your daily life and adjust until you’re in a place of peace. You deserve to be at peace even while you’re here. Be in the moment, whether it is big or small, and remember you are only a moment.

Love Always,
Veronica ✌💙


  • I’m glad to see this mentality is now manifesting itself. It’s important to remember what is “toxic” versus what is actually helpful or life altering. There’s a very thin line these days.

  • You are always so deep even when you’re tearing down biases. I can tell you are going through things and I have my fingers crossed for you. Love your mind, Vee!
