Don't Compare Your Story to Someone Else's

Our culture has confined us to one chapter of our story. What I mean is, we get so focused on this moment and making it perfect and trying to be like other people who seem like they have it all together we forget that this journey we're on takes time and that we're all going at different paces.
We forget to write our own stories. We forget that we have our own lives. We forget that we can do things and have adventures and go places and change the world. I don't know if anyone else feels me on this but like with social media and youtube and everything it makes it twice as hard to not look at others and sigh at ourselves and our progress.
 I tend to watch other people's videos and their thrilling lives and watch them travel and have the perfect closet and all the right outfits and flawless makeup and hair and I forget that I have my own life, I can do those things in my life if I want to.  I have permission to be original and permission to write my own story and be different and write my life differently from other people and start new trends and new fads. I forgot for so many years that I was writing my own story, I forgot to be adventurous, I forgot to live every day to the fullest potential.
You only have so many chapters. So don't compare your book to someone else's, 
"Don't compare your tenth chapter to someone else's chapter twenty-five"

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…
