You Are You Are

You are your own person. 

Don't let anyone shame you for how you feel, how you look, what you think, how you are. Everyone is there own person. Some like to be alone, some need constant connection. Don't let people walk over you. You are worth notice. You are worth listening too. Even if you don't believe that inside yourself, you are enough. Your thoughts are worthy, you have ideas. Don't let people shove things down your throat when they don't like your thoughts. You don't need validation from them. You are your own validation. So believe in your thoughts, in your strengths, in your ideas, in yourself. Accept change when it happens, and listen to people who have wisdom to offer because you don't always know everything but you don't have to accept someone's advice just because you listened to it either. You are your own ideas. Be your own thoughts. Be your own snowflake in midst of the flurry, and don't be swept away by anyone else's patter…

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…

"Beautiful"

When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? Our world and its standards are telling us that what we look like is all that matters. It doesn't matter what your heart is like, or if you're happy, just if you're pretty on the outside. It's crazy how messed up our minds are. We've forgotten that all of this outward beauty that we create will just fade away. Nothing on this earth is going to last forever. Your soul? That will last forever. So why do we let ourselves get consumed by this idea of making ourselves "beautiful"? I truly believe that you don't need to add anything to yourself to make yourself "beautiful" if you have a beautiful heart and mind, then you are truly beautiful. You were created perfectly. There were no mistakes made when God formed you. The little things you don't like about yourself shouldn't try to be "fixed", you don't have to "fix" anything about yourself. Instead fix your e…

Life's too short

In the words of my drivers' training instructor, "Life's too short, you know? Live a little. Life's too short."
And she's right, life is too short.
Don't waste it.
Don't be petty, don't have regrets, be nice to people, do good things, have fun, BE SPONTANEOUS! It's summer now! Live a little! Some of the most enjoyable things I have ever done were completely spontaneous and crazy!

Don't Take Life Too Seriously.

That should be on a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something.
My point is, Live Your Life. I cannot tell you how much it pains me to see people living without a cause, or without adventure, or they are letting go of their potential to be someone wonderful, and do wonderful things. Maybe simply because they were told by someone that "they can't" or "they aren't good enough to". But that's completely not true. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL. YOU ARE WONDERFUL. And you were made by God to do incredible things! You just ha…

In this Moment

Hey you, right now I want you to think about something in your life that makes you happy. It could be anything. A hobby, a job, a food, a person. What is it? Once you know, dwell on it for a second. Now think about the last time you got to do it. Were you happy then?

Life is so short. It goes by quicker than we can imagine. The next time you're doing the thing you thought about, the one that makes you happy, put a smile on your face. Even if you've had the worst week of your life. You're getting to do something that makes you happy. Don't waste this moment. So many people would love to be doing the things you get to do, yet they can't. So even if you have to paste a fake smile on your face, don't forget just how lucky you are to be living the life you are living. To be reading, drawing, dancing, writing, or creating, or singing, or even walking, or breathing. Don't take those things for granted, even though it's so easy too. Things happen, your circumst…

April Challenge!

April! It's here! And it's challenge time!

It's been while since I did once of these, but I'm feeling really inspired to so here you go.

Challenge: "Kindness Month"

Do something kind for someone else you know. Or multiple people. Buy them a coffee, take them out for lunch, get them a present just because, mow their lawn, give them flowers, buy them chocolate. You get the idea. Do something simple and kind and genuine to someone in your life who you normally might not do something like that for. It can't be your mom or your best friend. Someone else. Someone different maybe. Someone new.

Challenge excepted? Good. Now go spread kindness.❤

And the Birds will still Sing

Image
And the birds will still be singing. I think that is a beautiful phrase. Whatever happens, the birds will be singing tomorrow morning. I have a lovely little bird feeder outside my window and every morning I wake to the birds chattering on and on. It gives me hope, to hear the singing. I know that whatever happened the day before, the birds have moved on and so should I.

Life goes on, we all know this. We all know we shouldn't wait around hoping things will get better. We shouldn't live in the regrets and thoughts of the past. Life moves more quickly than we realize, and often more quickly than we would like. So don't get stuck behind it. Chase it. Keep walking forward. Even if you look back once or twice, just keeping going forward. Don't waste a moment. Don't sit in the middle of the road of life and think about all the things you could have done better. There's no use trying to go back now, those moments are over and done. Life keeps moving, and so should yo…
