Ryals 04.15.2018 • "I am a performer. Though I always knew what I'm passionate about, half of my life I was questioning myself (am I really, or I just pretend that I am?) . No matter how much people were trying to talk me out of it, or no matter how much of a fool I was in their eyes it was just their imaginary perception of my inner world that they have never had a chance to see as I saw it(because I created it in my head, (or it always was there)). But it still hurts when these people are your own family and friends right. . Or no matter how many different jobs I had to get to "survive literally", my passion was just becoming stronger. My heart would always whisper me the same melody that would reminded me of who I am. Everything of the above was just like the Wind for my little spark since the beginning, until it turned out to be a fire, the light of which was showing me the way so the darkness of unknown didn't seem so scary anymore. So the more struggles the more pain I've had in my life "the more wind was blowing" – the bigger my fire was becoming and the less afraid I was to take forward steps on the way to my dreams…" • #RYALS #PERFORMER #STATEOFLIBERTY

What's to say if in brief.. Hmm, well, I feel blessed! I feel blessed and happy living a life I was meant to live, or (just assuming) a life I created for myself. It is an incredible journey I call life, and I'm already the happiest one to realize that. About fighting the struggles, depression, procrastination, laziness, mental pain, physical pain and goodbyes you'll be hearing in my music, my songs, my letters and I hope it'll be an inspiration for you, as it is an inspiration for me, you know, to win dealing with your own demons that kinda thing. But the conclusion of the whole part of a the way we've managed this year – surprised , shocked and shook by every single day of my life of how blessed and lucky I am, thankful to every micro part of the whole universe for every single breath full of hope, faith, happiness and love. P.S. even got a little smarter and half dressed up, winter though right???????? . . . #thoughts#newyear#quotes#inspire#inspired#inspiration#inspirational#instaquotes#inspirationalquotes#wunderlust#boys#naked#guys#body#abs#whatever#life#love#kindness#support#always#happiness#here#now#only#joy#newyork#leatherjacket#newlook#newlife
