And Now I Do What's Best For me

Today I had to make a hard decision that affected me and my happiness. I had been thinking about it all week and I just felt like I had to do what I knew in my heart I needed.  I've been going through a lot recently. To explain a little of my life so as not to bore you, I am an actress and a dancer and a crazy theatre person. I've been doing theatre with my independent troupe for nine years now, i choreograph our musicals and I directed our fall play this year. I also did a ballet in the fall and today I was going to audition for our one-act ballet that my dance studio does in the spring but I, needless to say, had a breakdown and just couldn't do it. I need a break. I knew I had been pushed to my limit emotionally and physically. I couldn't do it. And so even though I knew I might regret it, I made the decision not to do it. I didn't make a brash, all of the sudden decision. This thought had been weighing on my mind all week. I knew what I had to do and I felt like a huge burden had been lifted off of my shoulders. We all get worn out sometimes, and frankly I'm just writing this post to tell you that IT IS OKAY. We are humans, and we are breakable and we get tired and we need rest. So if you have a burden laying on your shoulders as you read this, I want to encourage you to put it down, let it go. No one is perfect, if we were I wouldn't be writing this. Sometimes we just have to do what is best for us even if it's hard. And please, please, whoever you are reading this. Don't ever be too hard on yourself. We all have limits. Don't worry if you reach yours. It's okay.



  1. You are right. It is good to know that I am not the only one. You see, I have been going through a tough time too. A lot has been happening, and I feel suffocated at times, and feel as if I shall never see the light again. Your post has given be hope. So thank you. You are an angel.

    1. I feel so blessed that I could help encourage you. You have a wonderful purpose in life, don't forget that. You shall see the light again. <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…
