Memories


So, earlier today I was going through some old photo's and video's and I realised something more than ever, so I thought I would share.

Living in the moment is SO important.

Nothing is by accident.
You met that person for a reason. You did that embarrassing thing for a reason. You lost something for a reason. You grew separate ways with someone for a reason. Nothing you do is every on "accident" even though sometimes it seems that way or we make it seem that way. Everything that happens to you in your life has been preplanned by God. It's mind blowing to think about that. All those funny/embarrassing moments I have in my photo gallery I can not get enough of because they make me laugh and smile. At the time, I thought they were the worst thing ever of course. * sigh * Such a drama queen. But everything I have ever done happened to me for a specific reason and purpose. I think I've talked about this subject recently on my blog, but I wanted to approach it from a slightly different angle.

 I found these hilarious photos of me and my friends, but now we don't talk as much as we used to, I mean, were growing up. And I used to have the mindset that it was a bad thing and that maybe it was my fault, and I should try to contact them more, But no, we had our time, our memories, our struggles, our laughs, and those will forever be ours. And no one else's. But we have to accept when we need to go our separate ways. Life moves faster than we want it too sure, but cherish each moment you have to live and strive for something and you won't have any time to look back at things and think, "man I wish I could go back to being that age." or "I wish I could do that thing again." Live for Today. And then you'll be able to look back on this day in the future and go "man I wish I could do that again."

Also, keeping a journal and taking bucket loads of photos is something that is very important to me. It gives me such joy to look back at old memories or laugh at myself when I was in that stage of my life.

Live for today, love the memories, cherish people while you have them, laugh at everything, and always stand up tall.
You Are Loved. <3

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…

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…

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…
