You're Not Invisible

I've felt invisible. I know someone reading this has felt it too. You feel like there are so many people around you but you're not seen by any of them. Their all oblivious of your presence. You're another face in the crowd.

But let me tell you, 
I See You. 
You are seen. You are acknowledged. Don't fall into that downward spiral of thinking that no one cares about you. Catch yourself before you fall. Sometimes we feel neglected when we really aren't. We're being dramatic. I know I sound insensitive but trust me I've been there too. I'm there right now as I write this. There are people all around me yet I feel like nobody cares. And then out of nowhere, someone talks to me or smiles at me and I realize I'm not invisible. I realize I am seen. 
Let me be that voice, that person that comes over to you right now and asks how you are doing. I see you and everyone else does too. You Matter and you have to believe that because I can tell you what I think o…

You Are Enough

Am I just not good enough? 

We've all thought this at one time or another. Maybe it's after we've failed at something that was really important to us. Maybe it's every single day when we get out of bed. Thoughts have so much power in our lives. Our thoughts can compel us to adapt to a completely different way of living, or they can bring us down to such a low point where we don't even want to bother trying anymore. Thoughts can be dangerous, but they don't have to control us. 
1. It's all in your head.
You're feelings of self-doubt and unworthiness probably stem from someone or something that made you think you weren't enough. But no matter what someone might have said or done to you, ultimately it's you who are choosing to doubt yourself. You are choosing to believe someone else's thoughts. You don't have to do that. You don't have to doubt yourself. Don't choose that. Despite what we think sometimes, we as humans have the abilit…

We All Have a Story

Every single person you see, you meet, has their own life. Their own story. Their own worries. Their own pleasures. Their own interests. Their own personal style. Their own family issues. Their own money problems. Their own mental health. Every single person. Can you imagine how many people you see in one day? Even just at the grocery store. Every person you walk past at the grocery store has there own story. It's incredible. We are all so deeply individual and unique yet so similar at the same time. We all have problems and things we have to go through. We all have stories to tell.

The world is much bigger than we remember. Our bodies are so much more complicated than we could imagine. Our hearts are all so different. Yet that's what brings us together and makes us the same. We are all humans. We all have emotions. We all have hands, and hearts and minds. It's how we use them that makes us different.
 You and I, we really aren't so different. 
I believe in the good o…

Thankfulness

To me, being thankful isn't just verbal. Posting on social media, telling people, those are nice things but we tend to only do them when the reminder on our calenders comes around again. Thanksgiving. That's today. The end of the year is already so close upon us. Time flies.

When I think of thankfulness I think of living thoughtfully. Not just once a year and not superficially. Thankfulness is about living with harmony among the things around you and living with consciousness of what you have and what you're blessed with. Being at peace with life. Living in the moment. Thankful for every breath you get to take and everything you get to experience. Engaging with life and living with all that you have. Thankfulness to me is taking what life has given you and making the absolute most out of it. Not taking things for granted or letting things slip by you.

So be with wonderful family and friends today, enjoy your guilty delicious eating pleasures, and embrace what your wonderfu…

You Are Who 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…
