You Will Never Be "Ready"

You know what,
 I don't care who you are or where you are but if you are letting other people tell you who you are, that is not right. You define yourself. You choose who you are. You can create the life you dream of, you can have the career that you want, you can be the person you aspire to be. Do not EVER let other people tell you who you are. You do you. Be bold. Wear what you want to wear, do what you want to do, eat what you want, go where you want. Don't let the world keep you stuck in a tiny box. There is so much you could do if you just went for it. You'll be afraid of course, we all are, being scared is part of the process. Taking risks is part of it.
 Let me just tell you something someone else taught me, YOU WILL NEVER BE "READY". We all make that excuse, "well, I'm just going to wait to pursue that until I'm ready."
You. Will. Never. Be. "Ready"
 Face it. You know you won't. I know you won't. I know I won't. This is something I'm so guilty of doing. I've wasted years thinking I'm not "ready" yet. And don't get me wrong sometimes there are certain things that God wants us to wait on, or to learn something first before you do those things. But if you keep telling yourself that you're not ready your never going to get where you want to go. Reverse your thoughts, retrain your brain, tell yourself that there is no time like the present and that you might fall down but you're just going to go for it. Even if you're scared.

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…
